Driven, the fictional CART world series movie was released in cinemas 20 years ago TODAY where Jimmie Bly beat Chip Ganassi Racing’s Beau Brandenburg to the 2000 CART championship.
Juan Pablo Montoya, Paul Tracey, Michael Andretti and Chip Ganassi all appeared in the film as themselves.
The movie stars the late Burt Reynolds with Sylvester Stallone and Kip Pardue.
Chip Ganassi Racing tweeted:
20 years ago today, totally-fictional @CGRindycar driver Beau Brandenburg nearly beat Jimmy Bly for the 2000 CART Championship in the movie “Driven” (2001).
If there’s ever a Driven 2, we may need to rewrite the script a little… pic.twitter.com/p57i7PIj7p
