"Racing Dreams" is the award winning coming-of-age story about three kids who dream of one day racing in NASCAR. Academy Award® nominated documentary filmmaker, Marshall Curry, takes us into the lives of Annabeth (11 years old), Josh (12), and Brandon (13) as they compete for the championship in the World Karting Association's National Series -- widely considered the Little League for professional racing. Clocking speeds of up to 70 mph, these young drivers race their way through the year-long National Series that spawned many of NASCAR's top drivers. And at the same time, they navigate the treacherous road between childhood and young adulthood. In intimate moments of young love and family struggle, this exciting and often humorous story has been fondly described as "part Catcher in the Rye, part Talledega Nights." Executive Produced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
