Documentary NASCAR film screening Saturday at Transportation Museum

SPENCER ó A documentary filmmaker who has explored the grassroots of racing will screen his film Saturday in an event that is free to the public.
Kenny Dalsheimer will present his film “Go Fast, Turn Left: Voices from Orange County Speedway” at 1 p.m. at the N.C. Transportation Museum. A discussion period will follow.
Dalsheimer’s hour-long presentation takes place in the Orientation Room of the museum’s Bob Julian Roundhouse facility. Seating is limited and will be first-come, first-served. The program is sponsored by the N.C. Humanities Council.
Orange County serves as a meeting place for a southern racing community connected to and yet far removed from the multi-million dollar, image-driven world of NASCAR’s big leagues. “Go Fast, Turn Left” uses interviews with drivers, family members and track officials to provide insights into the challenges and opportunities of competing in the minor leagues of the fastest-growing sport in the U.S.
Dalsheimer has a master’s degree from Duke University and owns The Groove Productions in Durham.
A former middle school teacher, Dalsheimer now produces documentaries, teaches youth video productions and video-editing workshops and collaborates with artists and community groups on a variety of video projects. His other works include “Shine On: Richard Trice and the Bull City Blues,” “Choices and Change” and “Walking Miracles.”

This program reflects the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources 2008 theme “Telling Our Stories,” a yearlong celebration that showcases the story of North Carolina’s rich arts and cultural life. Visit www.ncculture.org for more information.
