Synopsis by Mark Deming
A common teenage ritual gets a new interpretation in this short comedy. Two high-school age guys pull up to the same stop light, and after plenty of engine revving and high-attitude staring, they agree to meet the next day for a drag race. However, what happens twenty-four hours later has nothing to do with hot rods. The Drag Race was directed by Will Campbell, who was then a student at Trinity High School in Euless, Texas. The film was an official selection at the 2007 South by Southwest Film Festival in a special program of works by Texas student filmmakers.
