However, the good life Bobby has made for himself is put in danger when French Formula One racer Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen) makes a jump to NASCAR. After a humiliating loss puts Girard at the top of the NASCAR world, Bobby loses everything: his reputation, his endorsements, and even his wife (to Cal!). However, with the unorthodox training methods of Reese, and the support of his mother Lucy (Jane Lynch) and his assistant-turned-lover Susan (Creator/AmyAdams), Ricky motivates himself to return to the NASCAR scene in order to restore his reputation.

A 2006 {{comedy}} parodying the world of UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}}, directed by [=Adam McKay=] and starring Creator/WillFerrell, Creator/JohnCReilly, Creator/MichaelClarkeDuncan, and Creator/SachaBaronCohen among others.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Based on the league patches on the drivers' uniforms, and the Gen-4 cars, it is implied that the first part of the movie takes place in 2003 and the latter in 2004. This comes from the drivers wearing Winston Cup emblems, which was last used in 2003 before Nextel took over the Cup sponsorship in 2004. NASCAR has made a lot of changes since then that are noticeable.
