When I was a kid, the weekends weren’t really for football in my house for a good bit of time. Instead, the weekends were for NASCAR. My brother and I collected all of the 1:24 diecast cars we could get our hands on and played the Xbox game to death. I can’t listen to Sweet Home Alabama without thinking of the main screen of that game, anymore. Needless to say, I’m stoked for this new series.
Today, Netflix released the official teaser trailer for NASCAR: Full Speed, a new five-part documentary series about the popular racing sport in the United States. The series, which will go behind the scenes with a number of professional drivers, their teams, and their families, will premiere on the streaming service on January 30th.
