Racing Dreams

A new documentary film called Racing Dreams opens in theaters this weekend. One of the stars of the film is Annabeth Barnes. She can't drive a car; the 15-year-old doesn't have her license yet. But she took her first spin on a race track when she was four years old. The vehicle hit 30 mph and Annabeth loved every second of it. After that, she moved up to kart racing, a gateway sport to NASCAR. She won several championships, including two grand national titles, and she's now getting used to full-sized stock cars. She joins Dick Gordon to talk about the thrill of the race.
