Right on Track is a 2003 biographical drama film directed by Duwayne Dunham, produced by Disney Channel and released on Disney Channel Original Movies. The movie is inspired by the real-life story of two sisters, Erica and Courtney Enders, who became drag racing champions in the Junior Drag Racing League. The protagonist, Erica Enders (Beverley Mitchell), is a smart and focused young girl who dreams of becoming a professional race car driver like her father, Gregg (Jon Lindstrom), who races in NHRA's Pro Stock division. Erica's younger sister, Courtney (Brie Larson), is more carefree and outgoing and loves racing, but she doesn't have the same ambition as Erica to make it to the big leagues.

Erica and Courtney's family is fully invested in racing, and their father runs a successful drag racing operation out of their garage. But when their father is involved in a serious accident and is forced to take a break from racing, the sisters must figure out how to continue racing without him.

Erica and Courtney decide to join the Junior Drag Racing League, a racing circuit for young drivers who race in scaled-down dragsters. The sisters quickly rise to fame in the league, consistently finishing at the top in their respective age groups. Their success garners the attention of the media, and Erica becomes the subject of a feature article in a major racing magazine.

As Erica's success grows, she becomes more and more determined to pursue a career in racing, but faces numerous obstacles along the way. She must deal with sexism from her male competitors, including one who purposely sabotages her car to prevent her from winning a race. Erica also struggles to balance her racing aspirations with her social life, as she is constantly on the road traveling to different races and events.

The dynamic between Erica and Courtney also changes as they become more recognisable in the racing world. While they remain close, their differing attitudes towards racing begin to cause tension between them. Despite their differences, they remain loyal to each other and work together to achieve their goals.

Right on Track is a heartwarming and inspiring story of two young sisters who overcome obstacles and achieve success in a male-dominated field. Its message of perseverance and determination is something that can resonate with audiences of all ages, especially those who have a passion for something that may seem impossible to reach.

The acting in the film is strong, with Beverley Mitchell and Brie Larson delivering standout performances as the two sisters. Mitchell does an excellent job portraying Erica's drive and determination, while Larson brings a sense of fun and levity to her role as Courtney.

The film also does an excellent job in showcasing the world of drag racing, from the work that goes into preparing the cars to the intense competitiveness of the sport. It's clear that the filmmakers paid close attention to detail, and the racing scenes are both exciting and realistic.

Overall, Right on Track is an engaging and uplifting film that celebrates the power of perseverance and determination in achieving one's dreams. It's a movie that the whole family can enjoy, and one that will leave audiences feeling inspired and uplifted.
