Back in the Driver's Seat

According to a news report from, “John Schnatter couldn’t resist, if only for an instant, revving up the powerful engine of his 1972 Z28 Chevy Camaro as he finished his lap around the track last week.”

“The muscle car — a replica of the one he sold 25 years ago to buy equipment for his first pizza shop — roared. Schnatter, 47, beamed with excitement. It’s hardly typical CEO work. Yet for Schnatter, the founder of Papa John’s who recently returned to the role of chief executive, it is part of the job description,” said the story.
