‘The intensity of the elimination format in the NASCAR playoffs is unlike anything else in motorsports,’ Dale Earnhardt Jr, NASCAR Hall of Famer and executive producer of the docuseries, told PEOPLE

‘NASCAR: Full Speed provides an incredible opportunity for folks to learn more about how this sport works, who these drivers are as people and competitors, and what makes them the best in the world at what they do.’

NASCAR and Netflix unveiled the official trailer for Full Speed on Tuesday ahead of its release at the end of the month, with ESPN journalist Marty Smith heard saying at the start: ‘When you’re at the racetrack, the overall sensory experience, the way it sounds, is intoxicating.

‘If you’re a race car driver, you have the opportunity to get hurt or killed — but you do it anyway. Think about what a bada** that is.’

The show, which will contain five 45-minute episodes, is the second NASCAR docuseries to be released by Netflix in as many years, following on from Race: Bubba Wallace – which focused on the American driver’s career and fight for racial justice.

The streaming service has also released docs on tennis, golf, NFL and women’s soccer in recent years.
