Sassafras For Backyard Shade?

— Nashville, TN (hardiness zone 6 or 7 depending on who you ask) — Back yard, full sun — Soil is clay, well-drained — Amateur

I am considering a sassafras tree for my backyard because it is fast growing — I'd like to get some shade back there asap.

My parking spot in the back yard is uncovered and directly adjacent to where I'd like to plant a tree.

Does Sassafras drop excessive amounts of fruit? I don't want to deal with constant car washing.

Also, should I be concerned about Sassafras' root systems getting into plumbing lines?
