Four-time IndyCar World Champion Scott Dixon and the Ganassi racing team face danger every day at work and risk their lives to succeed in the hazardous world of professional motor racing. The story of the will to win in the world’s most visually arresting and dynamic auto sport.
INDIANAPOLIS — You already know how this movie ends. But “Born Racer” is not about the ending. It is about the emotional and physical toll it takes just to get to the starting line. It’s about the journey IndyCar drivers, their families and teams embark upon every year in pursuit of the only thing that matters in racing: winning.
“Born Racer,” directed by Bryn Evans and written by Evans and Matthew Metcalfe, is a powerful documentary that homes in on the life of IndyCar racing’s living legend, Scott Dixon. But the movie is truly the story of IndyCar. At its core, IndyCar is made up of men and women who pour every ounce of themselves into the sport they love and therefore are completely exposed to both the ecstasy of victory and the heartbreak that goes hand-in-hand with loving something that can have catastrophic consequences.
