Spade Racing Movie Previews: Summer Blockbuster Edition

The heat is on, you’ve got cabin fever, and there’s only one place to go—the movie theater.  That’s why Hollywood is pumping out its biggest movies of the year in the summertime.  Here’s a few coming out soon with a Nascar theme to them:

Baby Driver—William Byron comes to the Cup Series.

13 Minutes—Computer simulations show that, without restrictor plates, the average lap around Daytona or Talladega would be 13 minutes long—10 seconds to go around the track, followed by 12 minutes and 50 seconds of clean-up.

The Little Hours—Nascar’s devotion to airing on FS1 (instead of Fox Business Network) sees them run Truck Series races at 2am EST.

Spider-Man: Homecoming—Tony Stewart attempts to climb the catch fence again (five hours long).

A Ghost Story—The awkwardness of dealing with when Carl Edwards comes back to visit Joe Gibbs Racing.

Wish Upon—Elliott Sadler, Justin Allgaier, and Michael Annett all allow themselves to believe they have a shot at the 88 car in 2018.
