Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Driven to Win is billed as "an inside look at NASCAR's rising stars," and it delivers on that promise with in-depth profiles of many of the many of the youngest, most promising drivers on the oval track circuits. Originally broadcast on the Biography channel, and boasting the polished production values one would expect from that prestigious venue, the series uses action-packed NASCAR footage, personal interviews with friends, family, and colleagues, and detailed background histories to provide informative and inspiring portraits of NASCAR's next generation of champions. For younger NASCAR fans, this is like five hours of fast, colorful hero worship, filled with down-to-earth biographical detail. For parents of NASCAR fans who may fear their children's enthusiasm for such a potentially dangerous motor sport, Driven to Win serves as a welcome survey of brave, determined young men (and women) whose competitive success is largely due to parental support and encouragement. Risk is acknowledged, but the passion evident in these profiles makes it clear that most of NASCAR's young winners are truly driven to win, with a "need for speed" that developed at a very early age.

Not surprisingly, fast-rising driver Kasey Kahne is profiled in the premiere episode, but there's plenty of highlights in subsequent episodes, from the Erin Crocker's rise in Sprint cars to becoming the first female driver to win the Outlaw series, to former football star Reggie White's dream to identify up-and-coming minority driving talent and help to start their climb to NASCAR's victory lane. To that end, profiles of White's first African American team driver, Chris Bristol, and 15-year-old Marc Davis (in NASCAR's "Drive for Diversity" program) are clear indications that NASCAR entered the 21st century ready, willing, and able to broaden its horizons, both behind the wheel and in the ever-more-crowded grandstands. As testament to the phenomenal revival of NASCAR above and beyond its so-called "redneck" roots, Driven to Win is a superior series that will, in later years, offer a fascinating look back at the youthful highlights of tomorrow's oval-track legends. Bonus features include Q&A with the drivers, easy access to capsule-length biographies, and a "NASCAR Behind the Scenes" featurette. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Information May 23, 2007
When I ordered this DVD, I had no clear idea of who was profiled since there was no list on the description page. Here is a list of episodes for season 1.

On Disc 1:

Kasey Kahne

Kyle Busch (there is also brief mention of his brother Kurt, but the main focus is Kyle)

Erin Crocker

Carl Edwards

Steven Wallace (with brief mention of his dad, Rusty)

Greg Biffle

Martin Truex Jr. (with brief mention of Dale Earnhardt Jr.)

On Disc 2:

Brian Vickers

Casey Mears

Richard Childress Racing (primary focus is Clint Bowyer, but Kevin Harvick is also mentioned)

Jamie McMurray

David Stremme/Reed Sorenson (Chip Ganasi Racing rookies)

Joe Gibbs diversity program (specifically Marc Davis, Chris Bristol & Aric Almirola)

Brandon Dean is mentioned in the product description purely because he is the "rookie driver" in the show opening. He is not an actual NASCAR driver.

Hope this is helpful. I know it is information I would have wanted when I was considering buying this DVD.

Does anyone know if there is a second season in the works?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Cool January 10, 2007
I ordered this DVD set just for Kasey Kahne but enjoyed all of the episodes included. It was amazing to learn how deeply rooted in racing some of the drivers are. I truly enjoyed the entire set and would highly recommend it.
