When film producer Chance Wright called Kyle Busch to pitch him a documentary about the two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Busch immediately said no.

“Who is going to want to see this?” Busch remembered thinking.

It was a rare “human” moment for Busch, known equally for his racing talents and the anger and short temper that make him a focus of controversy. Clips of Busch smashing guitars, cursing race officials and making fake crying faces on camera after the victories YouTube circulates as much as videos of him driving down Victory Lane.

Wright eventually persuaded Busch to go ahead with the film, titled “Rowdy,” which opens to friends, family and members of the media on Thursday. It’s scheduled to hit theaters in the United States for one night only on June 29.
