Summary "There is no doubt about precisely when folks began racing each other in automobiles. It was when they built the second automobile."--Richard Petty. This very appropriate quotation begins this celebration of the NASCAR experience. This film puts the history of the sport in context, placing emphasis on the technical details surrounding the cars, drivers, and fans. It covers the people inhabiting pit row, building the cars, and the elements of an engine block, leaving viewers feeling as if they have been present at the birth of a NASCAR chariot. For those baffled by the sport's popularity, there is enough mayhem--high-speed racing, body bumping, breakneck skids into pit row--to satisfy novices and die-hards alike.
