Formula story about a man who wants to make it on his own without his dad's help.
13 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

Formula story about a man who wants to make it on his own without his dad's help. Productions values are one step above home movie. Considering it's a movie about drag racing, there is very little racing in the movie, although there is a never ending string of blue grass music to keep you from falling asleep.
