Speed Lovers
Among the Speed Lovers in this modestly budgeted "regional" is real-life stock car racer Fred Lorenzen. William McGaha, the son of a mechanic, idolizes Lorenzen and dreams of the day that he, too, will excell on the race track. He gets his chance during a major stock-car competition in Atlanta. Most of the climactic scenes are culled from color news footage of actual racing events. In addition to starring in Speed Lovers, William McGaha also produced, directed and cowrote the film. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Thunder in Dixie
Race car driver Ticker Welsh is convinced that the senseless death of his fiancee was caused by an irresponsible colleague, Mickey Arnold. Wanting to get even, he enters Atlanta's Dixie 400 stock-car race. Former NASCAR champion Richard Petty makes a cameo. The race scenes were films at the Atlanta International Raceway. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
