SHOWTIME to air full-length 'TOGETHER: The Hendrick Motorsports Story' on Wednesday
NEW YORK (April 7, 2010) – SHOWTIME will air the full-length version of “TOGETHER: The Hendrick Motorsports Story” this Wednesday, April 7 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Narrated by Tom Cruise, “TOGETHER” chronicles the history of the nine-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship team founded by Rick Hendrick. Wednesday will mark the first television broadcast of the documentary-style film in its entirety.
The film is available in DVD and Blu-ray at the Hendrick Motorsports Museum and Team Store, Wal-Mart, Amazon.com, NASCAR.com and other retailers. Fans also can visit Hendrick Motorsports’ online team store to order the DVD.
The full-length version of “TOGETHER” (100 minutes) with bonus material is NASCAR Media Group’s first officially licensed title available on Blu-ray Disc. A portion of Hendrick Motorsports’ proceeds from those sales will benefit the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, N.C.
SHOWTIME generally runs “Inside NASCAR” during this Wednesday timeslot, but with no NASCAR Sprint Cup event scheduled last weekend, the next new episode will air next Wednesday, April 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Inside NASCAR features auto racing legend Michael Waltrip, accomplished racing reporter Randy Pemberton, NBA All-Star and NASCAR team owner Brad Daugherty and Emmy Award winner Chris Myers providing in-depth analysis and highlights from each week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Key features of the show include exclusive audio and video of never-before-seen aspects of race week and in-depth feature stories plus forecasts on upcoming races and opinions on America’s No. 1 form of motor sports.
Inside NASCAR is a natural extension of regularly scheduled SHOWTIME Sports programming, which includes the Emmy Award winning Inside The NFL, live boxing and mixed martial arts events, and the critically acclaimed, behind-the-scenes documentary series Fight Camp 360°: Inside The Super Six World Boxing Classic, among other titles.
