In direct contrast to the leisurely paced "Country Music: the Spirit of America" and "Mark Twain’s America," "NASCAR 3D" provides an insider's perspective about the nation's number one spectator sport. While there are some spectacular shots of cars racing into the camera and a tire that flies into the audience, "NASCAR 3D" is really an economic thesis about free enterprise. The film shows the growth of the sport from Daytona to the multimillion dollar events that support the small communities in Talladega , Alabama. The science of motors is explored with fascinating detail for even the NASCAR layman.
