I was turned on to this documentary several years ago by an Indian customer of mine. Great movie about one man's desire to do something unique and challenge himself. Check it out if you get the chance, very inspiring.
The World's greatest race is in progress in South America right now. Read up or watch footage of this race and you'll understand how pathetic it is to hear pussy Nascar drivers whine about track conditions or whatever lame crap is twisting their panties that day.
