     You are correct about it being some cheesy acting.  Those type of movies usually are, even Days of Thunder.  Never very realistic.  This movie also featured the world's ugliest Dodge Charger - what a waste!!    But it's neat to see the older Nascar cars.   They bring back a lot of memories because I remember seeing all those old cars run and that's when "stock car racing" was actually stock car racing.  I'm telling my age now but one of the very first movies I remember seeing in my early years is Thunder in Carolina, with Rory Calhoun - about Stock car racing back in the late 50's.

" I'm telling my age now but one of the very first movies I remember seeing in my early years is Thunder in Carolina, with Rory Calhoun - about Stock car racing back in the late 50's."  Dad piled us all into the '57 Chevy wagon and took us to the drive-in to see this one.  Part of the highway scenes were shot in the mountains close to where I live.  In fact in one scene there is a '38 Ford coupe on the road that belongs to local guy; he became a local celebrity.  Of course he was also known for some stupid stunts while driving.  

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!
