Jeff Bridges gives a spellbinding performance as the fictionalized Junior Johnson, a moonshine smuggler who became one of NASCAR's first champions. Elroy 'Junior' Jackson is a kid full of attitude who helps his bootlegger father run their homemade whisky. When Junior crashes into a police blockade, they arrest his father who's looking at a lengthy prison stretch. Junior needs to raise some fast cash to get him released and hits the demolition derby circuit. His natural skill behind a wheel sees him swiftly move on to stock car racing and finally a chance to make it big on the famous NASCAR circuit.

"Instead of a white stallion, he rode a full race, powder blue stocker.
It took him 20 years to find out who he was and 2 laps to let the world know."
