Red Dirt Rising Authentic Story of Early Days of Stock Car Racing
5 January 2011 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

Having grown up in a stock car racing family, I recognize the realities of a passion for racing without the financial backing to realize the dream. This film tells the story of a young man with a compelling desire to race with the big boys, but no way to break in. It's a film about never giving up on your dream, no matter what. It's about allowing the desire to race and compete to clear the path to victory.

The story is moving. The film is beautifully shot and directed. The acting is honest. Even though Red Dirt Rising is an independent film produced with a small budget, it can hold it's own against the big Hollywood dramas. This film is a winner and you don't have to be a race fan to root for the hero.
