Smell the burning rubber. You've got one 1940 Willys with a Hemi, a 1969 Cutlass, a 1965 Plymouth (that they call a Dodge), all revved up for some serious drag racing and street racing. It's a gearhead's dream, when young racer Gregg Henry comes to town. He cranks his motor to win a dragstrip competition where the outcome has already been fixed by a corrupt sheriff (Pernell Roberts) and the local mob.

But there is no stopping him.
