Low budget 70's film, but very educational
5 June 2007 | by (Reidsville NC, USA) – See all my reviews

I agree this movie was filmed with a very low budget, but was also filmed in the 70's, It does give what I believe is a good description for the life of Lee Petty, and Richard Petty, and the building of Petty Enterprise, The movie has a great story, but could have been made a little better. Growing up here in central North Carolina I have always liked the Petty family. This movie to me shows the best of were Nascar started. I really like the scenes that were filmed on location right here in North Carolina, sure as the scenes from early Caraway Speedway in Asheboro North Carolina, this track is still there and still raced every week as part of the Dodge Weekly racing series. Other scenes of local interest include Lee Pettys house in Randleman NC, and Whitts Store in Climax NC. Really cool to see the area as it was filmed in the 70's
