Muncie Civic Theatre is proud to present an original play by the students of the Ball State University Immersive Learning Seminar, “Greatest Spectacle(s) in Racing" taught by Tyler Smith. Oil in the Blood, a premiere stage reading, is Friday, November 21st at 7:30pmFREE General Admission.

As the opening race of this year’s Mid-America Tires Sprint Car Series approaches, veteran driver Jeff Reno drops a bomb on his family: After two decades of racing, he’ll have to sit out the first half of the season with an eye issue.  The family’s shock quickly turns to chaos and disagreement as Jeff’s 19-year-old daughter Ash volunteers to take her dad’s seat.  She’s been racing smaller cars since she could reach the pedals, and she says she’s ready to move up with the big boys.  Ash’s older brother Jeff Junior has been racing alongside dad for five years now and isn’t so sure that Ash is ready for the leap.  Stella, Jeff’s wife and team mechanic, is torn between giving her daughter an opportunity and wondering if Ash is ready to handle a 700 horsepower sprint car. And what will Les, the family friend and team sponsor think of these new developments? Oil in the Blood follows the Reno family through a season of Midwest sprint car racing, with plenty of drama both on and off the track.
