Earlier this year, I saw what I consider to be the greatest automotive documentary to date, entitled Winning: The Racing Life Of Paul Newman. I sat down with the movie’s director, Adam Carolla, about why Newman was an important figure, and why everyone should take a page out of Paul’s book of life.

Full disclosure: In February, I contacted Matt D’Andria, co-host of Adam Carolla’s CarCast show, and arranged a guided tour of Adam’s race shop in Los Angeles, along with a private screening of the movie.

Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman will be released in select theaters on May 8th and video on-demand on May 22nd. You can pre-order on NewmanRacingFilm.com or on iTunes, Amazon, and your local cable provider. It’s seriously worth it.

You can also follow Adam Carolla and Matt D’Andria’s awesome podcast, CarCast at CarCastShow.com.

He owns the world’s cheapest Mercedes S-Class, a graffiti-bombed Lexus, and he’s the only Jalopnik author that has never driven a Miata. He also has a real name that he didn’t feel was journalist-y enough so he used a pen name and this was the best he could do.
