Review: 24/7- The Road To Daytona

Posted by Amy in General

I wasn’t going to watch. While I do get extremely  “itchy” for racing action over the off-season, I decided I wasn’t going to scratch my itch by having to resubscribe to HBO after I had just removed it from my cable line up since it NEVER gets watched.  Anyway I resisted the call of 24/7- The Road To Daytona. I resisted and even though the closer the show came to debuting the weaker my resolve got but I still hung on with determination that I was NOT going to resubscribe. Nope!

Then HBO did the coolest thing ever- and that was make the first episode available online to viewers…and damned if I am not hooked.  The show provides a fascinating look into the team that everyone loves to hate…the history making 4-consecutive championship 48 team.  However- it isn’t just the Jimmie show and the first episode at least strives to great lengths to illustrate that point.  I don’t know what fascinated me more- the small glimpse we get into the “jackass from El Cajon” (hey Jimmie said it – NOT ME) or the look we get into Chad Knaus that makes him seem more human and less like the super-crew chief who wears kryptonite underwear even if he is a bit of an “asshole” to work for (again- Chad said it not me)!

Even if you aren’t into NASCAR- if you have HBO I think you should try to check out HBO’s 24-7- The Road to Daytona if you are just the littlest bit curious. You can check out the first episode on the HBO site. I really hope that they put this out on DVD- because I would buy it.
