  • NASCAR 3D: THE IMAX EXPERIENCE takes viewers behind the scenes at racetracks all around the country, placing the audience in the stands, on pit row, and even in the back seat of a car, showing the speed and glory, fear and fun that takes place at 38 races each year sponsored by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. Directed by Simon Wincer, who previously made such popular movies as FREE WILLY and LONESOME DOVE, the film includes interviews with such driving stars as Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Mark Martin, and others. Wincer places a special IMAX camera in Jimmie Johnson's car to give movie-goers the feel of actually being in a race. The film also looks back at the history of race car driving, from bootleggers through the Petty family and more. Wincer used some 72 miles of film in the shooting, which also takes a close look at safety concerns and crashes as well as the care that goes into the building of each car. Drivers explain such terms as drafting, and Wincer follows race day as dedicated fans create a huge, unique, and family friendly community and the drivers get psyched up. From Daytona to Talladega, Martinsville to Chattanooga, NASCAR 3D takes viewers on a wild ride that puts them front and center in the fast-paced world of stock-car racing, America's most popular spectator sport.
