Mike Brannon is a former war hero turned midget car racer. His ruthless racing tactics have made him successful but the fans consider him a villain and boo him mercilessly. Independent, beautiful reporter Regina Forbes tries to interview him but is put off by his gruff chauvinism, and when Brannon's daredevil tactics cause the death of a fellow driver, he finds himself a pariah in the sport thanks to her articles. When she finds him earning money as a barnstorming daredevil driver hoping for a comeback, they begin to become mutually attracted. Written by
Because footage shot during the actual 1950 Indy 500 was used, Mauri Rose can be seen exiting the pits driving past the pit for the real car #17, Joie Chitwood (Mauri Rose and Joie Chitwood's pits were next to each other during the 1950 500 race). See more »
You figure on doing another column on me?
You're only worth a couple of lines now.
Well, don't write 'em! I've been risking my neck with this outfit.
I hope they pay you well.
A hundred bucks a show, and I've been saving every dime. I'm gonna drive with the big cars now, and what you wrote about me doesn't go with them. So I'm warning you. Lay off me in the future.
You're warning me?
You better listen to what I'm saying, or I'll knock that smile off your face!

A fabulous film tour of dirt and asphalt oval tracks around the country. Forget the story! A treat to see the days when you could tour the country making a living in a race car,by yourself and a small crew of dedicated sponsors and friends. A must see for any race fan. All you lefty artists will only see it as
a sleeping pill. Pearls before swine. As a racer that ran at various tracks in the film,it cant be overstated how
nostalgic a trip it is to see men and race machinery the way it was in the old days; incredible doses of fun,danger and adventure. I read about these days and heard stories, but you can see in the filming that the crews and drivers
are a snapshot of true racing history in this country. Mark my words,in twenty years they are going to worship films like this one. Enjoy it now and show a friend the way it was....
