The pedal meets the metal in Rolling Thunder Stock Car Racing--the thrilling series that traces the history of stock car racing from the dusty dirt tracks of East Tennessee to the multi-million-dollar, high-tech venues of today.

But no way are the wily and track-trained veterans ready to concede defeat and drive off to greener pastures. No sire. These young lions have a fight on their hands.

It's the thrill. And without the thrill, you might as well be dead.
