Synopsis by Phil Griffin

Long Island's Riverhead Raceway is one of the last tracks of its kind. With the majority of stock car race tracks shuttered or sold as valuable real estate across the country, the racing traditions of small-town communities are being lost. This documentary explores the effect that racing has on the community's economy, culture and identity by interviewing owners Jim and Barbara Cromarty, historians, announcers, pastors, drivers and more. Directed by Michael Dweck.
