In the 1960s, the auto racing world changed dramatically. This documentary captures the transition into a new breed of racing from the Offenhauser front engine roadsters to the new mid-engine Fords. This incredible piece includes previously unaired interviews and footage from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and features moments of glorious victory from drivers such as Jim Rathmann, A.J. Foyt, Jr., Roger Ward, Parnelli Jones, and Bobby Unser. It even captures the impact of International Formula 1 drivers on the American scene, showing such greats as Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Dan Gurney and Mario Andretti. An added plus is footage from the "Race for Heroes" series, in particular, the "British Invasion" episode.
