"Born Racer" documentary appears this summer

"Born Racer" Teaser Gives First Look at IndyCar Documentary

Movies about open-wheel racing don't come along often, but Universal just dropped its first teaser trailer for a new IndyCar documentary, Born Racer.

Since his rookie year, Scott Dixon has been a dominating force in the Verizon IndyCar series, and Born Racer looks to give us a closer look at the four-time IndyCar champ and 2008 Indianapolis 500 winner. Dixon has had an action-packed career so far—-including a scary crash at the 2017 Indy 500—-and that should translate to a thrilling film.

Although not many details were revealed about the racing movie (including the release date), it does appear to give a unique, inside look at Dixon, his family and his Chip Ganassi race team - both on and off the track.

Dixon had this to say about the upcoming movie:

"Born Racer is a big milestone for me personally so I couldn't think of a better place to launch the teaser trailer than Indianapolis 500! It's strange seeing yourself on the big screen but also rather exciting. I hope it will give people a real insight not only in to the cars and the drivers but the entire racing community and the huge amount of work that goes into making this all happen."
