Spade Racing Movie Previews: Winter Dumping Zone Edition


January is when Hollywood takes all its relatively crummy movies and dumps them into theaters, hoping that people will see them in a cabin-fever-induced frenzy.  Here’s a few new movies with a Nascar-bent.

Blackhat—A wealthy Dale Earnhardt fan tries to track down a rare, unworn “Top Gun” cap.

Paddington—A look inside how Fox and NBC will fill time during rain delays without Kenny Wallace.

The Wedding Ringer—A group of Nascar fans look at the photos from driver weddings, asking themselves, “why do I care about this?”

Spare Parts—Jack Roush seeks to rebuild his team the only way he knows how—by accusing Toyota teams of stealing his equipment.

Little Accidents—A review of John Wes Townley’s Nascar career (presented by Zaxby’s)

The Boy Next Door—The touching, charming, and ultimately sickeningly-sweet story of Danica & that other guy’s relationship.


Strange Magic—A nostalgic look back at Derrick Cope’s Daytona 500 win.
