TMFF 2019 Best Short Documentary Award Winner

The arena is a dirt oval. The gladiators have a steel-shoe over their left boot that keeps them and their motorcycles balanced at high speeds. Every weekend, they travel great distances for the opportunity to pass the checkered flag first. This is flat track motorcycle racing. Flat track is one of the oldest forms of motorcycle racing and it has a rich history in the United States. Perhaps even more captivating than the bikes and the speeds however are the people that make up this exciting sport.

 

"The film is about the people more so than the action of the sport. It's a thematic overview of the best parts of flat track racing. There will be fast turns, dirt and gasoline… but there will also be characters, heart and laughs. I hope this film will appeal to racers and non-racers alike and will get more people to seek out this amazing sport."– Evan H. Senn
