This so-so TV movie stars Gossip Girl's Michelle Trachtenberg as Kylie Shines, a stock car driver on the verge of becoming the next big thing. When she's offered the chance to compete with the pros, she jumps at it, but lands directly in the path of her estranged father, who is a legend of the sport. Old resentments resurface, threatening to put Kylie off course, but she finds other distraction in the shape of a hotshot young driver. Veering between earnest and brash, this drama just never finds the right tone.

Plot Summary
