PG-13 | | Comedy, Sport
Number one NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby stays atop the heap thanks to a pact with his best friend and teammate, Cal Naughton, Jr. But when a French Formula One driver, makes his way up the ladder, Ricky Bobby's talent and devotion are put to the test.
Cal, Ricky, and Girard were all introduced during driver introductions at the 2005 UAW Ford 500 at Talladega. Ricky and Cal were cheered, but when Girard was introduced as a driver from France driving the Perrier car, the entire crowd started booing without any prompting.
Guess how fast we're going now!
Lucy Bobby: I don't care! I'm having a baby!
Reese Bobby: Hundred and five miles an hour! Can you believe that!
NASCAR Formula one and Indy cars don't drive backwards they are pushed.
Outtakes play through the closing credits.
In the DVD version of the film the scene where young Ricky steals his mother's station wagon (as seen in the theatrical version) is missing.
