Storyline

Car racer -like his father- Ray Johnstone has a fatal track accident. His brother Bill, the track boss, also becomes the guardian of Ray's brat daughter Alex, who grew up around the pits and dreams of following in his footsteps in his race car, provided she and pre-teen Casey can repair his car. That fails for years, but when professional racer Darryl K. Sands meets and gets a crush on her, he finds the fault and gives her invaluable lessons. Bill however isn't inclined to grant her pro-license, unlike cocky local Danny 'Ace' Lorimer, knowing she's mentally unfit, yet ends up giving her a long-shot, which she seems to mess up completely. Written by KGF Vissers

A Family Sports Film With A Lot of Heart
31 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is a great family film and if you like racing, then it's a MUST! Well written with strong performances, particularly from (and I was surprised) Justin Guarini. Dwier Brown does a great job as Uncle Bill, too, at first standing in Alex's way to success, then helping her get there. And Mircea Monroe as Alex has you rooting for her until the finish line.

Sure, you know it's going to have a happy ending, but the suspense and excitement kept me going right up to the end. It's beautifully shot and directed, and captures that wonderful Americana feel of small town people with big dreams. I particularly enjoyed the film because I'm a car buff, and the writers definitely did their homework. Both my wife and I liked it because we really cared about the characters. And our 14-year old daughter loved it because the lead, Alex, is a strong young woman who goes for her dream... and she thinks Justin is really cute.

This film has a lot of heart... and the racing footage is very well done. Great for the whole family! Pardon the pun, but Fast Girl hits on all cylinders!
