I talked to the guys in the booth, one is a main character in the movie, the other is part of the production team, and they told me that there will be many premieres that Don is bringing the below transporters and funny cars to the theaters and parking them in front... I'm going to see if I can make it to the Hollywood event. August 26th at the Egyptian is what they told me will be the event day, but it's not on the calendar of the theater

  • Two benefit premieres -- one on Monday, August 26th at The Egyptian in Hollywood and one on Thursday, August 29th, at the Regal Shilo Crossing in Indianapolis, just prior the Chevrolet Performance U.

  1. Got to watch this this weekend, it was great! Some of the acting was not top-notch, but the movie was obviously made by people who love the sport. The story was solid too. Even my wife liked it.
