...and this is what we got. So **SPOILERS** right up front. This movie is three or four movies that were never really fleshed out. First you have this father son dynamic where the son is following in his fathers footsteps but the car lets him down, and in order to keep pushing forward he has to get a new ride. Okay I'm on board, the writing is kind of terrible, and side bar, why would the announcers on an Alabama short track have mid western accents? I digress, so the writing is pretty bad, and then they cram in this love story. John Travolta, and Shania Twain. Never has a couple had less chemistry. Now the second movie starts, this movie is John Travolta returning to the track, racing and winning. In this section you find out Travolta's wife was killed in a car accident. Throughout the film there are a number of red herrings as to who was responsible. There are plot holes and sub plots that go nowhere, and they should have been cut to flesh out the racing seasons. Around 3/4 of the way through the movie I think they tied up the consultant and locked the writing room door, the on track action becomes laughable. The most interesting story line of Travolta making a comeback against his rival gets completely abandoned because of an accident. If you read this review, I'm going to apologize to you for ranting like a mad man. This could have been better, it should have been better. There is just so much wrong with it I could keep going all night, but I'm not going to give this terrible movie anymore of my evening. If you're a hardcore race fan you'll watch this, because you have to. If you're a casual viewer skip it.
