Nascar: The Rise of American Speed

"NASCAR: The Rise of American Speed," is not only a unique look into NASCAR's legendary beginnings, but in the spirit of racing, it is a no-holds-barred account of the sport's early pioneers and ascension to national prominence. The film features archival footage, reenactments and interviews with NASCAR personalities and experts including Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson, Joey Logano, Richard Petty, Tony Stewart and Darrell Waltrip. From bootleggers settling their differences through racing to a singular vision from "Big Bill" France that launched an empire, NASCAR has always been and continues to be a family affair with a long history of "racing royalty" to be shared and passed along. Drivers, mechanics and owners come to life through character-driven scenes that unfold chronologically across the three nights, starting with NASCAR's founding fathers and concluding with racing's great modernizers and current superstars of the track.
