Anchor Media Group, with sales and distribution expertise provided by MVD Entertainment Group, will be revving it up on Aug. 22 with the DVD debut of documentary filmmaker Ron Small’s Ashton Harrison: The Road to 24.
As Ashton tells it, the speeding tickets were mounting up and her father said enough was enough, but instead of grounding her, he enrolled her in a series of courses at the Bondurant Racing School. Basically, he was telling his 16-year old kid, if you are going to drive fast, you are going to it the proper way! Such a dad!
It is now six years later and this young woman of just 22 is a professional race car driver in a world dominated by men … she gives no quarter and asks none as it is pedal to the metal in Global Mazda MX-5 Cup series. Come follow her and the GB Racing team on the circuit … special appearances include John Doonan, Director of Mazda Motorsports, fellow racers Roger Mandeville and Jim Downing, Racing Analytics Crew Chief Shea Hughes and Jason Bondurant of the Bondurant Racing School.
And follow the on-track action as she competes at Barber Motorsports Park, Sebring, Road Atlanta, Road America, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Atlanta Motorsports Park.
When Ashton is not on the track, she donates her time to rescuing animals from kill shelters … Macy, Crimson, Lilly and Brush (three dogs and a cat) all call Ashton mom!
Bonus goodies included with the DVD release of Ashton Harrison: The Road to 24 are extended racing footage and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
