Trivia

Although backgrounds of many scenes include posters for various car races, portions of all ads are masked by black tape, probably to disguise fact that dates and/or locales of events didn't line up with when and where story was actually taking place. See more »

Goofs

Leander's fire burns in the hospital are so red they should be blistered, but no blisters are present. The doctor even says he's badly burned. You cannot be even slightly burned without blistering. See more »

Quotes

Dave: Bend is just up ahead. That's where we might get the treatment.
Leander: Well if we do, remember there's no chickens in this coupe.

SIlly Good Time Fun
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Citizen Kane it is not, but if you want a good time, drive in, type movie.. check it out. Frankie A. is a wanna be Nascar driver who drives for moonshiners on the side. He meets the hard Biz woman who owns the track and finds the moonshine drivers, but she falls in love and later on redeems herself.

Fabian is the local race track hero and king of the moonshine drivers. There's a slight twist to his character in the end that I won't reveal here.

Dopey songs, pretty girls and cars... Simple, Family friendly fun with some cool old school Nascar footage to boot.
