@Maysin: The actress' first and second name begin with the same letter. More recently, she better known for her run ins with the law than for making movies. Once you find the actress, you should be able to figure out the film pretty quick.
That was actually a little difficult for me as my mind kind of blanked and apparently the fans of Nascar fail as making lists with good movies and reliable links when it comes to films of a Nascarian nature.
As I thought about racing movies though it reminded me of an anomaly that I ran across some years ago. Did you know that in the middle of making a bunch of psychologically disturbing and highly symbolic horror films David Cronenberg who apparently is a huge fan of car racing made a racing film called Fast Company? Neither did almost anybody else.
I have yet to track down a copy of the film, but from what I've read it's not all that great with a lot of very cliche characters and quite a bit of hammy acting, but for car nerds it's supposed to be very interesting as apparently Cronenberg so overdoes his nerdy interest in cars that shots of them racing and all the technical razmatazz involved reaches what is often described as an almost fetishistic level of detail and is very well shot.
Just one of those random "the more you know" things.
