We just learned that Figure-Eight School Bus Racing is a thing and now we’re officially obsessed.

This clip is a trailer for the documentary SMASH: Motorized Mayhem, which delves deep into the small town sport of Figure-Eight School Bus Racing.

In a small town, tucked deep in the “real” Florida, a group of blue-collar folks gather to participate in a bi-annual wild event: Figure-8 School Bus Racing! Nineteen full-sized school buses pack a puny 3.8 mile figure-8 track and race twenty harrowing laps to crown a victor. The story follows three drivers and the track promoter during a three-week intensive push to prepare for race night. This film showcases these men in an authentic reality that thrusts the viewer into their world. Their knowledge of mechanics, coupled with a strong work ethic, rival the best in any automotive field. Smash is an engaging, humorous film, clearly demonstrating that real life is more entertaining than any fiction.

Rent the movie on iTunes for $3.99.
