Storyline

A sumptuous Sundance doc depicting the Long Island birthplace of stock car racing where only one track remains. Located on prime real estate, the real tors are circling. The property is worth millions and only the love and integrity of the track's community and elderly owners keep the bulldozers at bay. Stunning cinematography immerses us in the intimate world of grassroots racing, at a time when its future is in the balance. Can this great blue collar American pastime survive?

Just ehh...
26 March 2019 | by aelrod199See all my reviews

I'm a huge grassroots, Saturday night racing fan. I was very excited to see this after seeing the trailer. However it is painfully slow, poorly edited and an hour plus of my time that I won't get back. It gets a three with me because some of the interviews are very good. However most of this is just long silent shots with absolutely no context. Just adding a narrator to this would have dramatically increased the reviews. Such a disappointment.
