"WIDE OPEN" is an interesting subject I started filming a while ago featuring ordinary people with big desires in a small rural town. These people live and breathe the sport of short track racing. I've uncovered everyday heroes living among working class people seeking glory on a racetrack with a long history. Men fighting everyday to fulfill their dreams of becoming Whittemore Speedway champs.
These races are both thrilling and a brutally honest look into the heart of small town America. Suspense, heartache, triumph and raw emotion surround this requiem to a dying sport.
