Snag a girl's perspective of go-karting




This new documentary (premiering Thursday, Feb. 23, on PBS) follows three young athletes in their quest to be future NASCAR racers as they practice and compete in the Pavement Series, a yearlong championship of five different races across the country, put together by the World Karting Association.


The film follows 12-year-old Josh, who grew up in Michigan’s car-county and started racing when he was 5, and 13-year-old Brandon, a North Carolina native who uses racing as a way to escape his difficult home life.


But the biggest draw to us is Annabeth Barnes, an 11-year-old girl who loves the rush of the track. Motivated and free spirited, Annabeth enjoys competing against—and beating—boys in a sport where girls are considered a minority. As you’ll soon see in this documentary, though, the North Carolina native has come to a roadblock: Pursue her love of racing, which requires her to travel almost every weekend, or maintain the life of a regular kid.


Annabeth’s not the only one facing this dilemma. As the tour goes on, the three stars face adolescence and all that comes with it: First-time romances, concerns about relationships with their parents and the challenges that slim their chances of achieving their dreams.


So, what will happen? Tune in to Racing Dreams tomorrow night on PBS (check local listings) to find out. Won’t be near a TV? No worries! It will be streaming HERE from Feb. 24 to March 24.
