Synopsis by Mark Deming
Fans of auto racing get a whole new perspective on Indy-style competition in this documentary, which was originally shot and distributed in the high-definition IMAX film format. Super Speedway offers an inside look at the nuts and bolts of Indy cars and offers a wealth of exceptional racing footage as legendary driver Mario Andretti and his son (and fellow racing champion) Michael Andretti race in competition with cameras mounted on their cars, capturing the speed and heart-pounding thrills of racing in a way few films have ever attempted. The video release also includes a documentary on the making of the film that offers additional racing footage, as well as a look at how the filmmakers and racers worked together to create Super Speedway.
