Met a friend for lunch at Ontario Mills Tuesday...he suggested we head over and see the Cup Imax movie.....wasn't something I was planning on seeing...but it was very well done...The opening scene has Jimmy Johnson and Ryan Newman being chased by Mike Helton and Gary Nelson up a winding road in North Carolina in vintage 1940's cars and clothing. The scenes of the cars on the track headed towards the camera and away from it are pretty cool. Also interesting are the visits to the shops and the interviews are well done. And the movie doesn't shy away from the recent deaths of Dale Earnhardt and Adam Petty. I would love to see an F1 film in the IMAX format, too bad Bernie would want all the money from it, so nobody is going to make one.
