Marvin T. Smith grew up in Rome, Georgia and attended his first drag race in 1962 at the old Newton County Dragway (later Atlanta Speed Shop Dragway). Without a driver's license, he was limited to very few races until 1967 after which he was an avid spectator in the Atlanta area until he moved to Kentucky in 1971. He returned to Atlanta in 1975 and attended races at the new Atlanta Dragway for many years.
As a professional archaeologist and university professor, he has a natural interest in history, research, and writing. He has authored a couple of minor articles on drag racing history for the now defunct Quarter Milestones magazine. He is a member of the Standard 1320, an internet group of drag racing history buffs. He collects many forms of drag racing memorabilia, including magazines, handouts, hatpins, models, and diecasts.
