    Nothing big. But just figured id let people know.

    Today i went to scotia speedworld to prepare for tomorrows racing events, and there was all sorts of RV's and trucks and shit.

    From the little info i gathered, they are shooting a small movie for ABC called "The Circuit", and it is the story of the life of a young female race car driver....and yes....she is cute.

    Some locals might recognize these names and cars. The main car in the movie is actually Sheldon Pembertons #62 car of the Sportsman division at Scotia Speedworld. And the number #75 Ford Mustang of rookie driver of Mike Alexander of the Hobby Stock division is also used in the movie.

    Unfortunatly, Sheldons car was wrapped for the movie, so under contract he is not allowed to race his car until all shooting has been finished. But obviously they arepaying him, so he doesnt care about losing the points.

    Tonight they wrapped up all scenes at scotia, but any of our antigonish friends might wanna go check out some shooting scenes at Riverside Speedway starting tomorrow night. They wil be using come more local cars for scenes up there.

    Anyone else with some more info on this movie please post :)

    Neat. Glad they have great weather for it. I noticed the ubiquious yellow signs they post everywhere when shooting a movie and was wondering what it was.

    Our movie industry must be struggling with the current value of our dollar. :(

    :rofl: Dude just came in and bought a $100 Grant Steering wheel off the wall to use in this movie. My guess is they needed it to be a little rugged looking. As soon as he stepped outside, he took it out of the packaging and started throwing it up and the air and letting it drop, then kicking it around the parking lot. haha, it was too funny

    My brother is going to be an extra in this movie :)
    Mr. Lahey was at the Antigonish mall the other day scouting for people. Apparently he is a producer for the movie or something?

    They were still shooting Friday night at Scotia. They were filming some of the races and doing crowd shots. Maybe I'll be in the film. :ohnoes:

    I could see them basing a movie around maybe Sportsman cars.....but Hobby Stock ???


    As usual the Legends cars put on the best show of the night.

    they are doing it on more then 1 class car. they have used hobby stocks and sportsmans I know of so far. I know during the pace laps for the A main in hobby the had the 75 car out driving with the camera crew in back.

    And best race of the night? did you not watch the sportsman 50 with 10 laps to go?

    Yea, I grew up watching both of them also. back in 2000 when i started racing i took the #23 because of frank. we both grew up in shubenacadie. Do you know if frank is going to run anymore legend races or was that just a one off..

    Reminds me I have pictures of both from the IWK 250.

    His son Frank Jr. works at the same place I do. When I get back from vacation I'll have to ask him. Him being in the race was a pleasant surprise....Cy had to give him a bump from behind to get by him. Do you know if that was his first race in a Legends car and I wonder how much practice time he had ?

    He was driving the shit out of that car.

    :lol:

    It's the first time I have ever heard of him even near a legend car. I could be wrong maybe have up in NB. I was hunting for my own legend and found a few pretty good deals on them http://www.autoracingtrader.com/asphalt_race_cars.htm down as low as 6500US Cheapest I can find here is 9000+ CDN

    Big price difference. With the strong Canadian dollar would be a good time to buy. What kinda duty would they screw you with at the border on that I wonder ? Its not a real "car" for the road.

    Thats what I'm looking into now. Also alot of those cars for 6500US come with spare parts. The cars around here for 9000 Are just the car itself.
