Old B Rated Car Movies (anyone?)

Don't know if any of Y'all get the Network called "THIS" but I do and it's channel 197 on my cable network. They are having a "Marathon of Speed" on Saturday afternoon and it starts at 2pm and runs until 8pm. The three movies include: "Track of Thunder" - "The Wild Racers" - and - "Return To Macon County" - - - NO, they are not filled with great dialogue, plots or actors but I like them and there are some nice old rides in them. Anyhow, I thought that some of you might also like this stuff so, if you get that network, then tune in and enjoy.

My work here is done

Yeah it probably is I took a shot at the name lol couldnt remember but close enough. Alot of shows/movies that don johnson has been casted in are auto related in some way. Is he an auto hobbyist/collector?-since he has the money for it heh.

I remember " The Wraith ". It was pretty cool. The car was a crazy purple chrysler of some kind. Looked like the chry/mitsu 3.0 litre in the BACK of the car.
I wish they would put them on in the winter, I have more time to sleep in front of the TV in winter.

I worked at a drive-in theatre while in H.S. Got to see a LOT of B movies, Macon County rings a bell but I don't remember much of it. I will look for that channel. Thanks for the heads up.

I recall a movie that was banned that was a race to see how many pedestrians you can kill in your car. Killing the elderly rewarded the most points I think. Can't recall exactly but the movie was pretty shocking.

Death Race 2000 and the elderly were less points because they were slower and easier to hit.
