SMOKE, SAND AND RUBBER is a documentary about a race car driver in his eighties. With his son turning wrenches, Mel anthony gets behind the wheel of a midget race car for the first time in fifty-four years and takes the #12 car out on the oval around the Pacific Northwest. They show us that racing is a fatal disease. It might not kill you, but you have it until you die.


  1. Greg,
    My name is Tom Schmeh and I am curator of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum in Knoxville, Iowa. I am also the founder and coordinator of the International Reel Wheel Film Festival, which celebrates the automobile and motorsports in film. I just came across your documentary, “Smoke, Sand & Rubber,” and I would be interested in screening it in our festival this year, April 13-14-15. Might that be a possibility? To date we are screening Faith Granger’s “Deuce of Spades,” Sean Buckley’s “Follow the Corn 2: Next Level,” and Todd Huffman’s “Carlsbad USGP: 1980.” For more information, go to and click on the IRWFF icon. Thanks, and I hope to hear from you,
    Tom Schmeh
    Curator, National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum
