Not quite "fast track," but this pun is from the Louisville Daily

Courier, 7 January 1859, pg. 1, col. 7:

HISTORICAL KNOWLEDGE--"Eddy," said a mother, a friend of ours, to her hopeful

son, as she was reading to him of Pocahontas in the history of Virginia, "do

you know who Pocahontas was?" "Yes, mother," said the lad, whose thoughts

were upon the coveted pony, "she was a fast racker!"--Boston Transcript.
