Academy Award® nominated documentary filmmaker, Marshall Curry takes us into the lives of three teenagers as they compete in the World Karting Association’s National Series — the year-long championship that spawned many of NASCAR’s top drivers.
Clocking speeds of up to 70 mph, they race through the dangers and heartache of full-blown competition on the track whilst navigating the treacherous road between childhood and young adulthood.
In intimate moments of young love and family struggle, this exciting and often humorous story has been fondly described as “part Catcher in the Rye, part Talladega Nights.”
