About the first track:  “Bondurant” tracks a simple question to its natural conclusion: What would happen if the fellow who works at the Kentucky Motor Speedway—the fellow who’s labored for years paving and repaving the racetrack in the thick Kentucky summer hung with the heavy scent of Magnolia and asphalt, the fellow who spends his weekends under the hood of the track’s pace car dreaming of himself a race car driver instead of a nameless laborer—what would happen if that fellow’s dreams became, instead, a plan of action? Less simple, but perhaps more universal, is a further consideration: who’s recognition do we require for validation? What would happen if we simply engineered the circumstances of our success? In short, what if we just decided to steal the fucking show?
