The Last Race

0-1 Play Button

Once the hub of American stock-car racing, Long Island is now home to a single track, leaving the local community a solitary final haven to pursue this once popular tradition. Under the constant threat of demolition, Riverhead Raceway and its owners must remain strong in the face of corporate real-estate developers. Award-winning filmmaker and childhood racing fan Michael Dweck seeks to celebrate this seemingly forgotten American pastime and show the humanity behind the blue-collar drivers who call Riverhead home. Welcomed into the Riverhead family, the documentary crew explores the emotions behind the windshield.
