Winner, Motor Press Guild "Best Video of the Year" Award
Where They Raced tells the story of a pre-gridlocked Los Angeles. A time ripe with orange groves, movie stars, year-round sun and more auto racing and innovation than anywhere else in the world. This documentary uncovers the forgotten history with lost archival films, hundreds of vintage photos,
and revealing interviews.
