Magnolia Films has released the official trailer for the upcoming film The Last Race. The film provides an intimate portrait of the blue-collar racers and the owners of Riverhead Raceway, a short-track stock car racetrack in Long Island as it struggles to stay open as the real estate development boom threatens its survival.
For anyone who has ever attended a local short-track event The Last Race will surely transport you right back to that time and place. Though this film follows a small track in Long Island, the same trials and tribulations can be found at local tracks all across this country. Hopefully this film will inspire you to get out and support your local track to help keep this very American form of motorsport alive that turns regular Joes into heroes.
The Last Race was in contention for the Grand Jury Prize, Documentary at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and is slated for theatrical and on-demand release on November 16, 2018. You can find out more information about this film at their official site (here) and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
