THE STORY OF THE FILM!
Produced, written and Directed by multi Emmy-winning filmmaker Paul Taublieb of TAUBLIEB Films, with producers Mitch Covington and Susan Cooper & Pam Miller, and with support from Monster Energy, and in association with NASCAR, and distribution by 1091 Media the cinematic documentary chronicles former professional stock car racer Michael Waltrip and his tragic, star-crossed friendship with the late NASCAR legend, Dale Earnhardt Sr. The film is inspired by Waltrip and Ellis Henican’s 2011 New York Times best-selling book, In the Blink of an Eye: Dale, Daytona, and the Day that Changed Everything (Machete Books).
“Great stories are a gift, and this one has all the elements,” said the film’s director and producer Paul Taublieb. “It’s a story that transcends sports, much like Free Solo (2018) or The Endless Summer (1966), bringing a human quality that anyone can relate, whether you are a sports fan or not. Our film resonates with themes of perseverance, grit, determination and above all, the redemptive and transformation powerof friendship, even in tragedy.”

SAMPLE COMMENTS AND MEDIA REVIEW HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MOVIE!
DALE EARNHARDT, JR: “The movie is fantastic, and I’m so grateful it was made. One day when my 3-year-old daughter is old enough, this is the film I want to show her so she knows what her grandfather was really like. A great job and thanks to Paul and his team for making it.”
VARIETY: “A Hollywood screenwriter could hardly have scripted the story of NASCAR drivers Michael Waltrip and Dale Earnhardt more dramatically. Paul Taublieb’s documentary proves an affecting portrait of perseverance and friendship. Even moviegoers with no vested interest in motorsports are apt to be moved by this bittersweet Cinderella-ish saga.”
LOS ANGELES TIMES: ” A solidly assembled documentary portrait by sports filmmaker Paul Taublieb.“Blink of an Eye” movingly negotiates emotional hairpin turns with adept precision.”
RACER MAGAZINE/ERIC JOHNSON: “’Blink of an Eye is NASCAR’s answer to ‘Senna.’”
FORBES: “One of the strengths of this movie, and there are many, is its broad appeal that expands well beyond sports and NASCAR fans, and its relatability no matter the viewer’s age, social status, or political belief. Blink of an Eye is a gripping fable about determination, heartbreak, fortitude, and never losing belief in oneself.”
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: “Paul Taublieb’s documentary Blink of an Eye ostensibly concerns race car driver Michael Waltrip, whose biggest claim to fame is arguably his record-setting 462-race losing streak. But a ghost hovers over the proceedings, making the film more a story about friendship than a typical biographical racing doc. The pic will naturally hold its biggest appeal for racing buffs but may also prove appealing to nonfans thanks to the moving story at its core.”
NEW YORK TIMES: “The interactions between these real-life characters are here recalled with fondness and rue by the surviving participants.. One kind of hopes to see a revved-up fictional version of this tale onscreen someday.”
LA ARTS ONLINE: “Blink of An Eye is a must-see movie. It’s a powerful tragedy to triumph documentary about an unlikely friendship between legendary NASCAR icon Dale Earnhardt Sr. and fellow driver (and underdog), Michael Waltrip. Now let me stop right there and say I know little about car racing BUT this film transcends sports and focuses on the true meaning of friendship, sacrifice and redemption. It’s a universal and striking piece of filmmaking… and reveals a story that needs to be told.”
