  • It’s a darned entertaining way to get a handle on a sport that can seem like a bunch of cars doing circles for a crowd that seems most interested in seeing that next epic wreck. show more

  • The perfect answer to cries of "I'm bored," Marshall Curry's outstanding documentary won't just entertain your family for a little while. It'll also inspire everyone to get back outside, and find a new passion. show more

    What a terrific movie! We were intrigued by the trailer and poster, so we were pleased to get passes to the premier in Charlotte Tuesday night. The film is a real crowd pleaser and very inspiring. It should be well received by all sorts of audiences, not just "acing fans in the same vein that ROCKY was not just for boxing fans. We agree with the reviews: this is the best documentary of the year by far, as well as the best family film and the best overall movie in theaters!
