A poignant and fascinating look at three kids who dream of one day racing in NASCAR. Annabeth (11 years old), Josh (12) and Brandon (13) compete for the World Karting Association's National Championship- clocking speeds of up to 70mph. Josh, who started racing when he was five, is bright, focused and the consumate professional. Brandon is funny and charismatic, but his hot temper often leads him into trouble. Annabeth, the daughter of a retired racecar driver, spends nearly every weekend at the track and struggles to balance a love for racing with a desire to be a regular kid. As they race their way through the year-long championship series, they also navigate the treacherous road between childhood and young adulthood. In intimate, heartfelt moments- some dark, some funny- we see them battle with family dysfunction and economic hardship, celebrate young romance, and struggle to find out who they are.
