What is the S gear?

So I was driving my car, an automatic, and I noticed that there's a position on the gearshift labeled "S". I'm not a huge car person and had never really payed attention to it before, so I asked my dad what the S gear does.

Dad: Well, the S stands for snail! The cars of drivers who use the snail gear really well in races are called S-cars. When people on the sidelines see these drivers race, they say "look at that S-Car-go!"
