WHERE THEY RACED: Speed Demons in the City of Angels tells the story of a pre-gridlocked Los Angeles... a time ripe with orange groves, movie stars, year-round sunshine and more auto racing and innovation than anywhere else in the world. This documentary film is told with hundreds of vintage photos, lost archival films and revealing interviews that reunite the ghost tracks of Los Angeles with the cars that raced on them to give these fading memories a victory lap.
Featuring: Richard Parks (Wally's son), JC Agajanian Jr, Danny Thompson (Mickey's son), Vic Edelbrock Jr., Leslie Kendall of the Petersen, Greg Sharp of the NHRA, and Huell Howser.
Featured Cars include: Roger Ward's V8-60, Ed Winfield's Ford, an amazing 1926 Harry Miller front wheel drive beauty, a 1913 Fiat, Rosie Rousell's #96 Roadster, a stunning Mercer, and a 100 year old National that raced at the very first Indy 500.
