From the box:
Richard Pryor Drives ‘Em Wild
In his first lead role, Richard Pryor plays Wendell Scott, the first black to crack the all-white world of stock car racing, who went on to win the NASCAR and Grand National Crowns. This decades-spanning story shows Scott enduring racial slurs, matching heavily sponsored rivals with cars built from junkyard parts, and surviving crashes engineered by redneck competitors to triumph at the finish.
