8 Seconds, also known as 8 Seconds to Glory, directed by John G. Avildsen, is a 1994 dramatic biography about Lane Frost (Luke Perry). Frost was the 1987 PRCA Bull Riding Champion whose exciting career was tragically cut short. The film chronicles how Lane learned to ride bulls from his stern bronco-riding father, Clyde (James Rebhorn) in Oklahoma. Lane proves to have natural talent when it comes to riding bulls and with his father's support he is soon traveling the western rodeo circuit with his two best friends, Cody Lambert (Red Mitchell) and Tuff Hedeman (Stephen Baldwin). Lane's personal sacrifices to achieve fame, the possible life threatening injuries associated with the sport and the continuous pressure Lane felt to be as good as everybody said he was are portrayed in the film. His successful career, despite a rocky marriage and a devastating neck injury, are cut short when the ride of a lifetime has unexpected consequences.
