Take a look at the above picture of Rocky Hardcore in his natural habitat.

The stunt show business on the county fair and racetrack circuit involves a lot of waiting. Hours and hours of highway time that feels like driving on a conveyor belt. And hours and hours of lag time between setting up for stunts and performing them for the crowd.

And it’s been a long wait for the debut of “Hell Drivers: America’s Original Crash Test Dummies.”

We’re proud to be screening “Hell Drivers” for the very first time at the New Jersey International Film Festival on Friday, June 13. For a film about road trip adventures and the working class heroes of the outdoor entertainment biz, Jersey is the place to be. We will not be serving cappuccinos.

If you are even within a 500 mile radius of the Garden State, pack up the camper and bring the whole family! Come walk the red carpet with the real-life Hell Drivers!


WHEN: 7 p.m., Friday, June 13
WHERE: Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ;
Scott Hall # 123
43 College Avenue (near corner of Hamilton Street)

TICKETS: Sold at the door, beginning at 6:30 p.m. $10 general admission, $9 students and seniors, $8 Friends of the NJ Media Arts Center.

DIRECTIONS: Take the NJ Turnpike to Exit 9 and then take Route 18N (New Brunswick direction) and go for 2 1/2 miles to the Rutgers University/George Street exit (immediately after the Route 27S exit; don’t take the earlier George Street exit).

At the end of the exit ramp onto George Street, take a left at the light. Go to the next light and make a right onto Hamilton Street. At the next light, make a right onto College Avenue. Almost immediately on your right, there is an University Parking Lot (#9) which is set aside for the NJ Film Festival.

Scott Hall is adjacent to the parking lot on the right. You can also park in Rutgers Lots #1 (next to Kirkpatrick Chapel) and #16 (next to Murray Hall). Click here for a campus map.

As a bonus, your ticket buys you a double feature. “Spine Tingler,” an offbeat pop culture film about “the last great American showman,” screens directly after “Hell Drivers.”

A Q & A session with a few select Hell Drivers will conclude the formal portion of the evening.


Oh, and a belated congratulations to Robbie Knievel, who just jumped over 24 Coca Cola trucks at the King’s Island amusement park in Ohio. See those clouds of flame? Our very own Lou “Rocket” Re generously helped out with Robbie’s pyro. We don’t know what Lou gets paid for these kind of consulting gigs, but we suspect he would play with fire for free.



  1. OH YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAA looking forward to seeing my stunt pals in this awsome REAL Flick
    Lou and Douig Congrats

  2. What these daredevils do is incredibly awesome and they do it for the passion and not for the money. I can’t wait to see the premiere.

  3. I’m There! You’ll can find me in the family colors.

  4. hey, can we buy that film on tape/ DVD??

  5. Hi Kevin:

    We will eventually have DVDs for sale, but are still planning to pursue the cable television market.

    We’ll keep you posted — thank you for asking!
