Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of Foreigner's ninth studio album, their first album containing fresh material since Mr. Moonlight in 1994, and their first studio release with lead singer Kelly Hansen.
  • This song was written by the band as a tribute to NASCAR in celebration of Foreigner's appearance at the Samsung 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway earlier in 2009.
