What's Your Favorite Racing Movie?

It’s another off weekend for the Sprint Cup Series, so we thought we’d talk about a different topic this week on our blog – movies – racing movies that is! 

We have a lot of movie buffs in our office and we all have different ideas of what the best racing movies are.  Since we couldn’t agree, we thought we’d search the web to see what other sources had to say...here is a great list we found from sportsinmovies.com:

Top 10 Auto-Racing Movies:
1.   Le Mans (1971)
2.   Days of Thunder (1990)
3.   Fast and the Furious, The (2001)
4.   Grand Prix (1966)
5.   Winning (1969)
6.   Two-Lane Blacktop (1971)
7.   Cars (2006)
8.   Speed Racer (2008)
9.   Herbie Fully Loaded (2005)
10. 3 - The Dale Earnhardt Story (2004)

A lot of us were surprised that Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby didn’t make the top 10 – especially since that seems to be the movie we could remember the most lines from!  It almost made the top 10, coming in at number 11.  We were also surprised that Cannonball Run didn’t make the top 10 – it was number 19. 

What do you think of the top 10 list?  What’s your favorite racing movie?

Until next week....happy movie watching!
