Speeding along on her Daddy's lap in his 1946 Cadillac, little Shirley knew she was born to race. But little girls grow up to be women, and women have no place in the macho world of hot rod racing--until Shirley. The film takes us through her childhood as the daughter of a country western singer, a doomed marriage to an auto mechanic and, finally, her tumultuous rise to the top of drag racing. Through marriage, motherhood and competition, it's the story of a real woman overcoming real problems.

While Billlie Jean King reigned tennis Shirley Muldowney's feminine power showered car tracks. Right up there with Norma Rae. Be sure to watch the director's comments. Beau Bridges and Bonnie Bedella have great chemistry. flies under the radar of great classic films.
