Gawleee . . . what a piece of kudzu. Terrible movie . . . terrible plot . . . terrible acting . . . terrible actors . . . great old racing footage.

It says I need 10 lines to submit.

OK . . . it's junk.

The producer . . . and the lead actor . . . was an ego maniac.

But, he portrayed himself as a jerk.

Guess he thought he could make money with this anyway.

Maybe only a "C" feature at the drive in theater.

But, you can have fun . . . if you are an "old school" racer . . . watching it.
