Spade Racing Movie Previews: Summer Blockbuster Edition


It’s the time of the year when the temperatures rise, the tv shows go on break, and Hollywood releases its biggest and best movies to a theater near you.  Here’s a look at the coming movies with a Nascar bent:

San Andreas: A massive earthquake destroys California Speedway.  And nothing of value was lost.

Aloha: An in-depth documentary on the long-ago short-lived Nascar Hawaiian Series.  “The film did very poorly”.

Results: Martin Truex Jr. asks the media how taking a single-car team to multiple top-fives means that he isn’t doing well enough.

Spy: Hendrick Motorsports and Penske Racing send an undercover marketing agent over to Joe Gibbs Racing in order to figure out the secret to getting so many logos on a single polo shirt.

Love & Mercy: The story of the Armed Forces Foundation BEFORE Patricia Driscoll took over.

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence: Explaining to the public what exactly a “cat-bird” is and why its seat is important.


Jurassic World: Someone tries to start a series for retired racers.  Again.
