The documentary racing documentaries that have made their mark in NASCAR have often been about an athlete’s journey from humble beginnings in a local garage to winning championships.
Murray’s “Brick Rides” and “Road to the Cup” are two of the most iconic NASCAR documentaries.
But it wasn’t until 2015 that Murray started a long-form documentary that followed his life as an athlete.
It’s a story of a family, a coach, and a life of grit.
As a member of the National Football League’s Oakland Raiders, Murray spent a decade as an offensive lineman and was named to the Pro Bowl three times.
But when his team was outscored 28-0 in games that year, he was let go.
That year, Murry began working as a race car driver, but his career wasn’t sustainable.
He quit racing and moved to New York City, where he began directing documentaries.
Murry’s work is rooted in a common narrative of perseverance, but the narrative was not always that simple.
Murrays family and his coaching career are intertwined in a story that explores the struggles that come with living in a small, white town in the middle of the country.
The documentary also examines Murrays rise from an undrafted quarterback into a superstar athlete.
Murries story is one of the fastest growing stories of the modern sports documentary, with many documentaries focusing on athletes who have grown up in small, predominantly white towns and never had a chance to reach the highest levels of the sport.
Murrys success has also made Murry a poster child for growing up in a predominantly white city.
Murrah is the latest in a long line of athletes to be featured in documentaries that spotlight athletes from all walks of life.
But as Murrays career progressed, so did his filmography.
“Bricks” is a documentary that was initially filmed in 2014, but Murrah made it the centerpiece of his NASCAR documentary trilogy.
It also featured a number of other prominent NASCAR drivers, including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Brian France, and Ryan Newman.
“The Road to the Trophy” was released in 2017 and was followed by Murrays NASCAR documentary series “The Best of NASCAR” in 2019.
Both Murrahs NASCAR documentaries focused on a team and driver that won three consecutive championships in NASCAR from 1995 to 2003.
But the documentaries also made it clear that Murrah had no interest in making the same sort of documentaries about a team that never won a championship.
Mursey, who also helmed the documentary “Boys & Girls” before joining NASCAR, had no intention of trying to recreate those sorts of stories.
Instead, he wanted to look at his own life and career and how he came to love the sport and the people who are around him.
Murrares first NASCAR documentary was “Road To The Cup,” released in 2018.
The story begins with Murrays parents moving from a small town in Kansas into a suburb outside Kansas City.
Murrays father, who had moved from Kansas City to the area, was a salesman for an auto parts manufacturer and had a hard time adjusting to life in a white neighborhood.
The family lived on the outskirts of Kansas City for a time before moving to Murraays hometown.
Murroys father wanted to become a professional athlete, and Murras family moved into a garage for a few years before returning to Kansas City in order to finish school.
Murrs mother, however, remained in Kansas City and stayed on the edge of her seat for several years.
At the time, Murrahs mother was struggling with an addiction and he was struggling to get his life together.
Murraines mother wanted to leave Kansas City, but he wanted more.
So Murra s mother took a job at a local pizza shop, and she was forced to take care of her father.
It was there that Murraes father began working in the pizza shop.
He was earning about $100 per week as a driver.
“It’s a lot of money for a guy like me,” Murry said of his father’s earnings.
“I can’t say I’m proud of it.
But I’m very proud of the fact that I got that far.”
After working at the pizza place for two years, Murrys father started his own pizza place.
But he was still in debt and had trouble finding work in his hometown.
It wasn’t long before Murr’s father began to lose his mind, and he would eventually commit suicide.
“Road” follows Murrah and his father as they move from Kansas to a small Missouri town to start a new life in the big city.
“In that first two years [of working at Road], I was still a lot in debt, and I had a lot on my plate,” Murrah said.
“And I was just a lot like any kid in Kansas, that’s the truth.
I was struggling and in need of help.
And so, I decided to
