FULLERTON, Calif. - After nearly six years, the public can see a sneak peak of the film "PENTON: The John Penton Story" with the newly released trailer featuring John Penton, his hall of fame family and a few of the motorcycle industry legends that were interviewed for the film.

The nearly four-minute trailer teases the entire film and specific stories the audience will get to see in the final film when it opens in theaters June 20.

Scored by the film's composer and music editor Chris Brady, the trailer features John Penton along with his sons Jack, Jeff and Tom. It also includes a few of the more than 100 interviews for the film that spanned the world. Look for Malcolm Smith, Dick Mann, Carl Cranke, Marty Smith, Danny LaPorte, Bruce McDougal, Paul Danik and current Red Bull/KTM Supercross star Ryan Dungey, along with KTM's Kalman Cseh and John's wife Donna.

"It's great to finally show the industry and all the people who supported this project a little sneak peak at what we have been working on for so long," said Todd Huffman, the film's director and producer at Pipeline Digital Media. "We hope this gives a little insight on what an important story and family this is when the film is released in June."

"Our family is excited and humbled to share our story with the motorcycle community," said Jack Penton, AMA Hall of Fame Motorcyclist. "We look forward to enthusiasts, dealers, clubs and more working with Gathr Films to bring the film to their town."



June 20 falls on an off weekend for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series and will be the opening weekend of the film in select cities. It will premiere June 9 in Cleveland, Ohio, and June 17 in Hollywood, Calif.
