Spade Racing Movie Previews: Springtime Edition


The sun is shining, the grass is growing, the flowers are blooming—you know what that means!  That’s right, crippling allergies.  For those of you who prefer to lurk in the shadows of the multiplex, here’s some upcoming movies with a Nascar focus.

The Circle: A wealthy Nascar fan rebuilds Langhorne Speedway, only to find out why they called it “Puke Alley”.

How to Be a Latin Lover: Yes, it stars Daniel Suarez, and yes, its about as stereotypical as you can get—just the usual story of a Mexican Nascar driver who loves studying dead languages.

Sleight: Boxing authorities have to come up with something below “Minimumweight” in order to sanction the big Kyle Busch vs. Joey Logano brawl.

The Lovers: Virginia’s impact on the Nascar world is studied, specifically why Hermie and Elliott Sadler talk like that.

3 Generations: Dale Earnhardt Sr. fans reunite to realize that the controversy over restarting the “3” car was pretty pointless, in retrospect.

Snatched: A heist goes horribly wrong when a thief wrongly assumes that anyone other than a Nascar fan would want Dover’s “Miles the Monster” trophy in their house.


The Wall: Jeff Gordon reminisces about going to the mall to buy CD’s.
