If Robert Carradine blows a line on a movie set, the director just re-shoots the scene. But if Bobby Carradine blows a line on the race course at 110 m.p.h., then Robert Carradine has a big problem. Carradine is starting in the second row for today's Bridgestone Potenza Supercar Series at the Camel Grand Prix of Greater San Diego. Having starred alongside John Wayne, Lee Marvin, Walter Matthau and Dennis Hopper, Carradine might be best known for leading the "Revenge of the Nerds."
