Running may be the original sport but to determine the best racing movies of all time, we culled together humanity’s finest achievements in running, jockeying and driving on the silver screen. Running icon Bart Yasso (@BartYasso) joins us for the running films (first 33 minutes). We run down 21 racing movies — and yes, we included Ricky Bobby — with seven earning pole position to the 64 all-sports movie tournament taking place in March 2020.
You can check here to see the winners to date in our sports movie marathon, plus explore all the running movie rankings we aggregated to seed the movies reviewed by Bart.
