Fast in Footloose

By Rachel McDaniel Several Pike County residents were part of filming for the recently released Hollywood blockbuster Footloose. Local musician and racer Houston Hatchett drove his dirt track race car in race scenes filmed at the New Senoia Racetrack with Hollywood stars Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid and Kenny Wormald. ’There were a lot of people from Pike County who were extras in the movie,’ he said. ‘The race scene is a big scene in the movie. You’ll be able to see my red car racing with him in the movie because my car is right behind him as he wins the race. They let us go around the track full speed a few times during filming.’
