DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Kevin James stars as crew chief Kevin Gibson in Netflix’s new comedy series, “The Crew." 

The show is the latest in a line of NASCAR-themed TV shows and movies where the source material traditionally bordered on good ol’ boys satire or sensationalism rather than grounded in reality. 

How the “The Crew” will land in the finishing order among past vehicles like “Days of Thunder,” “Talladega Nights,” or “Cars" remains to be seen. 

But the stock car door is open for a new contender to emerge as NASCAR entertainment's winner.
