New Hampshire Motor Speedway will make its movie debut Saturday in the made-for-television family drama “Change of Plans,” which airs at 8 p.m. (EST) on FOX.
Jeff Burton, a veteran NASCAR driver and four-time winner at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, worked with the cast and crew in filming “The Magic Mile’s” scene during the SYLVANIA 300 weekend in September.
The movie, presented by Procter & Gamble and Wal-Mart, demonstrates how lives can change with a single phone call. After finding out her best friend from college was killed in an accident, Sally Danville (Brooke White, “American Idol”) learns she has been named the legal guardian of her friend’s four children. Sally and her husband, Jason (Joe Flanigan, “Stargate Atlantis”), must learn to parent this instant family and help the children deal with culture clashes and life in America.
The star-studded cast includes: Phylicia Rashad, best known from her role on “The Cosby Show;” Jayme Lynn Evans of “All My Children;” Bobby Soto from the hit TV show “Brothers and Sisters;” Jakobe Dempsey of “Barney and Friends;” and newcomer Clarissa Suwoko. “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson also makes a cameo appearance.
