“Death Race 2000” Named One of the All-Time Best Car Racing Movies

Alex Maidy at posted his choices for the Top Ten Car Racing Movies.  There are a few surprising choices (Cannonball RunTalladega Nights?) and some expected ones.

I’m happy to say that Sly Stallone made the list.  My first thought would have been Driven, but actually it was for Death Race 2000.

Eric D. Snider posted his choices at Mental Floss for The 21 Best Movies of the 1970s.  Snider’s list contains great choices. He listed his picks (except for Godfather 2) by their year of release.  I rated Snider’s choices by how they resonated with me.  Here’s how things came out…
