Red Line 7000 is the best I have ever seen!!!

Red Line  7000 had everything. It even had a Daytona Coupe in a ditch. I have the  DVD, VHS and Laser Disk. Since the topic is Best Racing Movies, Grand Prix is almost a documentary on F-1.  Continue

Regarding TINY LUND, HARD CHARGER - the film appears to be completely lost, but there's some good info about the film here: Tiny Lund info 

And I just put up a beautiful 40x60 original poster for it on eBay:

Stadium in the movie.Very cool!!

I found it among a disc of SUSPENSE TV show... I don't really know what this feature did here. Anyway, it was a good surprise for me. It could remind us Howard Hawk's RED LINE 7000, for the settings and the story too. James Withmore plays here a vet car driver - for races, I mean - who has to fight every day to feed his family. And, one day, he realizes he has to race against a young guy, an ambitious one, for whom he is nearly a hero. The characters are very interesting for this kind of TV stuff. The dialogue between Withmore and the young pilot's fiancée is outstanding, when he tries to convince her that her man should choose for another job, another dream: becoming a star pilot.

I won't spoil the ending but it's a powerful little sport drama directed by the vet Frank Mac Donald.

I notice that you can watch "The Speed Lovers" movie on Comcast cable channel #1 On Demand by clicking  the "Free Movies" and look for  the movie: "Speed Lovers" or "The Speed Lovers".

Received "Red Dirt Rising" for my birthday.  Some of the names had to be changed for licensing reasons I'm sure, but upon the movie's conclusion, I researched some of the basic historical facts and found many to be inaccurate.  Does anyone else have this movie and can offer input?

 

I have to admit, a guilty pleasure of mine is "Days of Thunder" because it's 1. Cheesy, but 2. Sounds AWESOME through a home theater system!
