Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie makes an excellent primer about the world of stock car racing for fans and nonfans alike."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Its rampant corporate sponsorship is messy and distracting, and the athleticism necessary to triumph is still less intriguing (perhaps because it's less visible) than the athleticism necessary to triumph in, say, baseball."
‑ Erik Lundegaard, Seattle Times
"A rather rote and superficial look at the NASCAR circuit."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"The film is about as illuminating as the race cars' stickered-on headlights."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Gentlemen and ladies: Don your goggles!"
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"NASCAR 3D will delight fans of auto racing."
‑ Janice Page, Boston Globe
"Doesn't quite overcome its shameless self-promotion, but the film will satisfy the Lynyrd Skynyrd set while providing a decent explanation to those who are baffled by the sport's popularity."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"It turns out that racing around an oval track offers surprisingly few opportunities to exploit 3D effectively."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"This one does manage to put audiences in the action. And its brief examinations of the science of auto racing are pretty educational."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"In spite of flaws, for sheer size and bravado, it still deserves a look"
‑ Marty Mapes, Movie Habit
"An interesting behind-the-scenes look at one of the world's most popular spectator sports."
‑ Sara Gebhardt, Washington Post
"A 45-minute glorified infomercial."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"I wanted more time on the track, more passing, more actual racing. NASCAR (Stock car racing) implies "adrenaline rush" and I missed that in this otherwise solid documentary."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"Part infomercial, part historical documentary, all in 3-D, Nascar 3D is best seen as a spectacle, something that exists for its format rather than its content."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Those vehicles sure are big, they come right at you, and they're in one heck of a hurry. For about 40 minutes, that's all you really need."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
