This film is not very well filmed and the acoustic quality of the sound is poor in some scenes. The indoor cinematography is the most disappointing. The only reason any fan of Petty or NASCAR would watch this would be to learn the history of "the King" and the sport he and his father helped build. It is rewarding to watch how the relationship between father and son unfolds, particularly when they become competitors on the track. It is also fascinating to watch how different each woman in the family copes with the hardships of being married to race car drivers. Film buffs won't care much for the C grace filming, but race fans should watch it for the vintage racing footage and close ups of Petty's race cars.
