Will Ferrell's new movie Talladega Nights

Can you imagine what would you would get if you stuck Days of Thunder and Anchorman into a blender, the result would be Will Ferrell's new movie Talladega Nights. When I first heard about it, I had my reservations but then again, I don't recall seing a Ferrell movie that hasn't made me laugh. Okay, there was that bad Bewitched movie and maybe Kicking & Screaming but other than that he's put out funny-as-hell movies. This movie doesn't come out till August 4th and I'll be at the theater that night.

The film tells the story of NASCAR stock car racing sensation Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) whose "win at all costs" approach has made him a national hero. He and his loyal racing partner, childhood friend Cal Naughton Jr. (John C. Reilly), are a fearless duo -- dubbed "Thunder" and "Lightning" by their fans for their ability to finish so many races in the #1 and #2 positions, with Cal always in second place. When a flamboyant French Formula One driver, Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen), challenges the "Thunder" and "Lightning" for the supremacy of NASCAR, Ricky Bobby must face his own demons and fight Girard for the right to be known as racing's top driver.

Here's the trailer and click here for link to the movie.

They filmed parts of that movie @ the night race we went to at Lowe's Motor Speedway. Headsets are key @ Nascar races or we would have never known it was his car that dropped out after the first lap.
