Movie Reviews

mrshvd3 | New Jersey, USA | 02/16/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The documentary was very well done. We enjoyed the bonus features almost more than the film itself for the people who weren't in the main feature. I'd love to see a sequel to this, as there was so much material and so many people not covered: "Underbird" Alan Kulwicki, who started on a shoestring and won the Winston Cup Championship, only to die in a plane crash less than five months later. The Jarretts: father Ned and son Dale, both Winston Cup Champions. The Labontes: brothers Terry and Bobby, both Winston Cup Champions. The racing brothers: Benny and Phil Parsons; Rusty, Mike and Kenny Wallace; Darrell and Michael Waltrip; Kyle and Kurt Busch. And so many more. More of the pioneers of the sport. "NASCAR: The Ride Of Their Lives" is a great start, but not nearly enough."
No it isn't just about left turns

"After watching this on CMT, I knew I had to own this movie. If you love NASCAR and know the history, or don't know a swaybar from a spoiler, you will be riveted by this movie which highlights the best times and the worst. It really pulls at your heartstrings and will impress any NASCAR novice."

"I have been a NASCAR fan for 50 years.
I thought there would be more on the older drivers like Curtis Turner, Jr. Johnson, The Flocks & the Bakers etc."
Great Inside Look
