    Seabiscuit is awesome, but a movie about Nascar ehh....
    "Ninety-two years ago [the Indy 500] was probably like any other race," said 2005 winner Dan Wheldon. "But over time it's just created so many storylines and history for people of our generation that now it's just massive. People value that history and tradition and you just can't take that away."

      I can't wait for the one from the maker of "The World's Fastest Indian", The Bruce McLaren story!

        "...you can do a lot with emotions that are being played out at 200 mph," Ross said.
        Unless he's setting it during the 1980s, that sentence alone tells me he doesn't know enough about NASCAR to make a credible movie out of it.

          Your post tells me that you haven't been paying attention this year. At both Las Vegas and Atlanta, the cars were hitting 205 at the end of the straightaways.

              According to the film's web site, http://www.thebrucemclarenmovie.com, they should be working on the second draft of the script right now. I'm hoping they have lots of Can Am stuff, given how significant that series was to Bruce's career. I'm wondering who they will get to play Bruce and Denny Hulme as well.

                  I think was addressing the part about "you can do a lot with emotions" and noting that today's drivers are politically correct cookie cutter automotron pretty boys and not the heart-on-sleeve type ofl drivers we have seen in the past.

                    I'm skeptical on what Hollywood will do to any sport in the name of dramatic license. I just hope it doesn't leave us howling over the liberties they take. Something like 3, executively produced by ESPN, came out very good. I'm just not optimistic about anyone in Hollywood respecting racing enough to portray it truthfully.

                        If this does to NASCAR what "Driven" did for CART, I say "Action!".

                          I might have liked 3 better if they hadn't made their 1970s Grand National cars look like Saturday night Street Stocks. Barry Pepper was pretty good though.

                            Colin Meiny (Chief O'Brian of Star Trek) is getting a bit old but would have been a fine Denny Hulme.

                              You mean Colm Meaney.
