This upcoming documentary is in pre-production to be release December 2015. From the producers of “The John Penton Story” this new film is about the history of the famous California island race originally held from 1951 to 1958. The 2010 event miraculously came together due to the efforts of Vinnie Mandzak. Footage includes such personalities as Kurt Caselli, Kendall Norman, Malcolm Smith, Johnny Campbell, Travis Pastrana and special legends who raced the original event in the 1950s.
The Boys Republic is a special place for troubled kids to learn life skills. Steve McQueen spent time here as a teenager and always spoke fondly of the faculty that turned his life around.
