TURBO teaser trailer released

Randy Bernard may no longer be the CEO of INDYCAR, but what may prove to be his biggest contribution to the sport is set to emerge next summer as TURBO — a Dreamworks Animation film that features INDYCAR and the Indianapolis 500 in prominent roles — hits the silver screen.

The film follows a young snail (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) who aspires to be an Indy 500 champion and gets the chance to realize his dream when he attains the power of super speed.

Up to this point, we've only seen pictures and concept art of TURBO, but now Dreamworks has given us an early Christmas present with a teaser trailer for the movie. And while it's only about a minute and change to look at, it's clear that Dreamworks has put a strong effort into capturing the atmosphere of the '500' and IndyCar racing. One hopes that the script is just as solid as the look.

Anyway, enough talk. Check out the trailer on iTunes.
