The action drama, set in 1925 Alaska, is based on a true story.

Treat Williams, Henry Thomas and Bruce Davison head the cast of The Great Race, the directorial debut of Brian Presley, who also stars.

The action-adventure movie tells the true story of a team of sled dog mushers in 1925 who race through a blizzard to bring a needed antitoxin to Nome, Alaska, to prevent an outbreak of diphtheria. Presley, who plays the lead musher Leonhard Seppala, also wrote the script and produced the film through his newly formed production company Rebel Road Entertainment, along with producers Mark David and Will Wallace. 

The Great Race also stars James Russo, Brad Leland and Brea Bee.

Presley, who most recently starred in USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, is repped by Jay Cohen.
