POV | Racing Dreams - Documentary Trailer | PBS

Duration: 02:32
Program: POV

Fondly described as "Talladega Nights meets Catcher in the Rye," Marshall Curry's (Oscar®-nominated "Street Fight", POV 2005) "Racing Dreams" chronicles a year in the life of three tweens who dream of becoming NASCAR drivers. Though they aren't old enough for driver's licenses, Brandon, Josh and Annabeth race extreme go-karts at speeds of up to 70 miles per hour in the World Karting Association's national series, the "Little League" of professional racing.

The film is a humorous and heartbreaking portrait of racing, young love and family struggle. Winner of Best Documentary Feature Award, 2009 Tribeca Film Festival. (90 minutes)
