Short Track


Carolinian Blake Beckett (Pepper Sweeney), the son of a stock car racing legend, is a four-time short track racing champion. Blake never made it to the speedways of the National Cup Racing circuit, but surely he could still have a shot?

The daily life experiences of Blake’s family and crew are exposed through unique characters that work and play through the weeks that culminate in 120 mph Saturday nights.

Dove Review

This wholesome and dramatic movie is about going after one’s dreams! It features themes of sacrifice, family devotion, and a strong faith in God.

Blake Beckett (Pepper Sweeney) is a man of many racing accomplishments but is it too late for him to make it to a race in the National Cup competition? A young man named Indy likes his daughter Abby, who has aspirations to become a country western singer. The movie focuses on some interesting characters including “Pops”, a man with a lot of experience and practical point of view. And Brody, Blake’s deaf son, who wants to race but must prove he can handle it in order to satisfy the insurance underwriters.

Short Track” makes a great statement: if you have a dream-go for it! We are pleased to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for All Ages. You will enjoy the ride this movie takes you on!
