Fans of fantasy and sci-fi the world over almost lost out on the legend that George Lucas became as the creator of Star Wars and all the success he went on to have as a filmmaker. That's because he almost became a professional race car driver until a serious accident caused him to go into filmmaking instead. Thankfully, it all worked out, and he became an icon for sci-fi geeks everywhere. By the '80s, Lucas had already established himself with the enormous success of the first two Star Wars films and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
