What is this NASCAR-themed romantic comedy movie about?
As for the synopsis, the story talked about Lyla, an ambitious sports agent. Owing to circumstances, she lost her star client ahead of the NASCAR season. In desperation, she took a gamble on seventeen-year-old Piper Kyte, a female dirt track racer with a rebellious streak. To further complicate matters, Lyla also had to go through Piper’s father, Matthew Kyte. Apparently, Matthew was a former NASCAR champion who infamously walked away from the sport.
The movie idea’s conception was actually a pretty interesting story. When the pandemic hit, producers were anxious to get the project off the ground. Right off the bat, they decided that the genre would be that of a romantic comedy. After working through multiple scripts, they came up across Greenberg’s Clean Air and everyone was hooked. Interestingly, The Chainsmokers’ connection to NASCAR is down to their various performances at a number of races.
This movie follows on the heels of a number of NASCAR-based productions. This includes the Netflix docu-series Race: Bubba Wallace. The series has been extremely popular among fans, as it focuses a lot on Wallace’s journey through NASCAR and his experiences.
