Kyle Busch Documentary “ROWDY” Screens Wednesday Night In Theaters Nationwide Film Offers An Insider’s Look At One Of The Most Successful and Controversial Drivers In NASCAR History | Press Release, Fathom Events
LOS ANGELES June 28, 2022 – Theaters across the U.S. will screen the critically Kyle Busch critically acclaimed documentary “ROWDY” on Wednesday night, June 29. Information and ticket purchase can be accessed via Rowdy | Fathom Events. The one-night-only screenings follow the world premiere, held on June 23 at Nashville’s Regal Opry Mills. That special event—held only days before the All 400 at Nashville Superspeedway—was highlighted with an appearance by Bush, his wife Samantha and son Brexton, his brother and fellow NASCAR competitor Kurt. They were joined by personalities from both NASCAR and the Nashville entertainment industry. Chronicling the career of one of the most successful and controversial drivers in NASCAR history, ROWDY has been produced by Chance Wright of Wright Productions along with Hans Schiff and John Stevens of Venture 10 Studio Group.
Busch - who earned the moniker “ROWDY” because of his flat-out, no-holds-barred racing style - is widely considered to be one of the most polarizing drivers of the contemporary NASCAR Series. The documentary provides a special look at his unmatched talent and singular determination to win at everything while giving candid insights from family, friends and NASCAR personnel on his life and career. Busch confronts his physical limits when he sustains a potentially career-ending wreck in 2015, only to find a path to win the series championship that same season. His journey is ranked as one of the greatest sports comebacks of all time.
Busch’s irreverent and polarizing personality, whether in or out of the driver’s seat, has earned him both diehard fans and vehement detractors, though his accomplishments are irrefutable. His 60 Cup wins lead all active drivers, ranking Busch ninth on the all-time wins list. Busch is the all-time record-holder for wins in both the NASCAR Xfinity Series (102) and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (61). Busch has a total of 223 victories in all three NASCAR national series.
“ROWDY is an incredible comeback story of perseverance, grit, and overcoming improbable odds,” said Wright. “Peeling back the curtain shows the truth in athleticism in NASCAR and Kyle. Hardcore fans of NASCAR will get as much out of this as the person who has never seen a race.”
In addition to interviews with Busch himself, the documentary provides commentary from some of NASCAR’s most legendary personalities, including but not limited to: NASCAR superstars Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon, team owners Rick Hendrick and Joe Gibbs, brother Kurt Busch and wife Samantha Busch.
