Cole Whitt Speed Stick Gear
#NASCAR Daytona Challenge

43 Cars - 200 Miles Per Hour - Inches Apart.

In front of tens of millions of people... for the first time ever; watch #NASCAR Sprint Cup ‘Rookie of the Year’ candidate Cole Whitt as he kicks off his rookie season by taking on NASCAR's biggest race in his no. 26 Speed Stick Gear blue and white race car.

The documentary above accurately depicts the efforts of the triad, consisting of driver; team; and sponsor, to compete in the “Great American Race.”

Cole Whitt
NASCAR Race Mom’s favorite part of the film has to be the dramatic fashion in which Whitt accomplished the feat of qualifying for the big show.

Driving for Swan Racing, he had to battle his way into the Daytona 500 by finishing the qualifying race fifteenth or better.

After 60 laps of green-flag racing in the first Budweiser Duel at Daytona International Speedway, Whitt made several swift moves in the final lap, to advance the No. 26 Toyota from seventeenth to twelfth.

This documentary is done very well and successful in providing the NASCAR fan an appreciation for all the preparation and frustrations a NASCAR Sprint Cup team encounters.
