Join us at the Capitol Arts Center on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 for a screening of the independent film Road to Race Day. Producer/Director Cynthia Hill will be in attendance to discuss the film. All Southern Circuit film screenings are free and open to the public, no ticket required.
About the film:
With Road to Race Day, Producer/Director Cynthia Hill (Private Violence, A Chef’s Life) digs deep into stock-car racing’s marrow with unprecedented access to NASCAR’s most-winning team, Hendrick Motorsports. Holding the most titles in any major American professional sport in the last 30 years, Hendrick’s powerhouse of elite drivers has made the company the “New York Yankees of NASCAR.” NASCAR is mired in myths and stereotypes, especially as it relates to the sport’s southern heritage. But Race Day’s unique viewpoint and cinema-verite style overturns those misconceptions by offering a window into the strategies and preparations that propel these premium athletes toward the next race and ultimate success.
The Capitol Arts Center is located at 416 East Main Street on the north side of fountain square park. Complimentary Parking is provided by John and Carolyn Ridley during evening events at the Capitol Arts Center. The parking lot is located behind The Pushin Building and the Capitol Arts Center building and can be accessed off of College Street. There are 59 spaces provided and limited to a first come basis.
