“I’m thinking that this film was more than simply a nostalgic tribute to a young racing driver who started a race car company and all about character, teamwork, respect, and deep friendship. Without that, motor racing is just a bunch of cars making a lot of noise going around in circles and ending up back at the same place an hour or so later (if they’re lucky).” Our editor reviews a racing film that’s about much more than cars.

TIRES THAT CONSERVE FUEL:
THAT’S HOW I ROLL!

Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus tires

REVIEW—Needless to say, one of the most important safety features on your vehicle is the set of tires on which you ride. Weather conditions and road surfaces can vary greatly, and the tires you select for your vehicle have the task of getting you safely to your destination.

I saw a lot of real life events that are replicated in this movie. Tom Gomez reviews the movie.

Our own historian, author, woodworker Harold Osmer tells of us his and his family’s relationship with the event that took its seventy-sixth turn at the wheel last Thursday. Harold’s story is far from typical, but a working part of the fabric of the event nevertheless.
