In another homage to the legendary Mr. Will Farrell... Brett O'Bourke of Common Machine Prod. and I couldn't help but quote every line from "Talladega Nights," as we packed up the gear and embarked on our next project called "Disappearing Speedways." Our destination was the Orlando Speedway on the outskirts of Orlando, FL. NASCAR this is not, but that's exactly what gives these small tracks their charm and timelessness. Over the course of the next year we will be shooting this documentary all over the South as we make our way around this disappearing circuit. "Dear Lord Baby Jesus, I want to thank you for this wonderful meal, my two beautiful son's, Walker and Texas Ranger, and my Red-Hot Smokin' Wife, Carley," classic.
