Storyline

We follow the Newman-Haas (Andretti) racing team through the process of building, testing, and racing for a season. This includes extensive race speed on-track footage, including some pre-race footage with a full squad of cars. From time to time, we check in with a small shop building/restoring one of the first roadsters Mario Andretti raced; the finale includes him taking it for a spin. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

not quite what i had hoped,but racing buffs will probably enjoy it
29 October 2007 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

i should mention that i'm not really a racing fan.nevertheless,i picked this documentary up fairly cheap,and i thought it might be interesting and thrilling.and to be fair,it was-to a point.the scenes with the closeups of the car racing as it's being tested are quite exciting.the cameras are right on the car,so you can't get any closer unless you're actually behind the wheel.theses scenes really show you how skilled the drivers are and how dangerous the sport can be.and hearing the roar of engines was something.you really get an idea of how powerful they are.but for me,there were'nt enough of those moments. a lot of the time is spent showing how a car(at least one car)is manufactured.i knew before hand that there were would be some focus on this aspect.i just thought they devoted too much time to it.f you're into that sort of thing of thing,you will probably enjoy theses scenes.but for me,i'm not really into that sort of thing,so i found those scenes dry.there is a making of feature,which is almost as long as the documentary itself.this is not something that would interest me,so i did not watch it.however,if you're a racing fan,or you're just interested in the behind the scenes of the documentary,you might like the making of.overall,for me,i was kinda disappointed.i don't think the documentary is terrible by any stretch,but it did not live up to my expectations.i'd have to give Super Speedway a 4.5/10
