Set in 1989, DRIVE follows the life of Piper Pierson, daughter of the winningest NASCAR Winston Cup team owner in history. Piper was on her way to becoming the first prolific female driver when a terrible accident nearly caused a fatality and robbed her of her confidence and her desire to live the only life she’s ever known.
Piper trades her dreams of becoming a driver for a degree in journalism and gets a job working at a famed NASCAR newspaper. Through her work, she meets Colt Porter, the sport’s hottest young driver. Sparks fly and Colt and Piper become close.
But Piper’s trepidation regarding all things racing prevents her from truly living and loving her life. Colt works hard to convince her that life is beautiful and must be lived as if every day is the last. Slowly Piper embraces Colt’s mantra and begins to return to the free-spirited and fun-loving girl she once was.
But when another life-changing event happens, Piper must decide if she can continue down the path to happiness or if she will revert to the scared, introverted girl she was after the accident.
DRIVE is the story of hard truths, love and loss and holding on to what matters most.
