Ethel Grimshaw documentary released today

4-1-12: The success and tragedy of 92 year old Ethel Grimshaw still lies fresh in the minds of many within the Dash Cup Series. As a one-off rookie driver with a underfunded team, Grimshaw managed the impossible. In her very first stock car race (let alone first taste of driving a high performance vehicle), she pulled off a huge upset victory in the first race of the new series. A senior citizen winning a stock car race is simply absurd, yet Ethel Grimshaw proved the naysayers wrong.

The next week however, Grimshaw suffered fatal injuries in a race ending multi car pileup at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The documentary, titled "Too Fast for Age" chronicles Grimshaw's decision to pursue one of her bucket list dreams: driving a race car. The film has recieved widespread praise among critics and was called a "work of excellence" by Ebert and Roper and described as a "must see" by former Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip

The film, already an award winner at the Sundance Festival, premieres across the country tonight at 12AM.
