About The Race

During shooting of "The Race," the young actors had fun with the working boxcar derby racers. These cars were a delight for the art department to create. Paired with Alabama's song "Angels Among Us," the spot teaches us that sometimes, caught up in the heat of the moment, we may find the richest rewards in life by just pausing and realizing something important may be happening right in front of us.

I have a son that is now 20 with special needs. He is non ambulatory and though a very healthy young adult, he requires us to take care of all his basic needs, but gives back so very much more. So loving and just a joy to be around. My son has truly made me a better person. I'm so touched by this ad and I post it occasionally to remind myself and others of the goodness that is still out there or could be.

I think that boy that was helping the one in the wheel chair helped him in the car beacause he wanted to give him a chance to be in the game not just watch the game. He probably felt bad for the boy. He could not walh or run. but he could race in a car.
