Went For Broke: Lost Footage Of Finnegan Going All-Out At The Freedom Factory Video Shoot


Went For Broke: Lost Footage Of Finnegan Going All-Out At The Freedom Factory Video Shoot

One of the biggest deals of 2020 that doesn’t have the word “pandemic” attached to it came right at the beginning of the year, when Garrett Mitchell (read: Cleetus McFarland) purchased the former DeSoto Speedway and renamed it the Freedom Factory. Over the last few months, Coronavirus be damned, he’s put in a ton of work to get the facility up to his standard and he even managed to host a race of nothing but nitrous-equipped Crown Victorias before the state of Florida locked down. And keep in mind, he’s only in his mid-twenties and he’s done all of this. The dude really is living the dream, alter-ego or not.

When the deal was made and it was time to actually announce the Freedom Factory to the world, he did it big-time. He roped in friends and family, and he put a call in to his kind-of rival, Mike Finnegan, to come down and properly break-in the overgrown asphalt, and they had a riot of a time that included more tire smoke than the track had probably seen in the ten years prior. We’ve seen Cleetus’s footage but this is from Mike’s perspective, including a small oopsie that left James’s GMC burnout machine down for the count. Check it out!
