While writing an article exposing its dark side, beautiful reporter Eve Drake (Carla Balenda) is drawn into the world of motorcycle racing, where she becomes involved with egotistical racer Dick "Dusty" Weston (Bill Williams)and clean-cut engineer Chris Rhodes (Steve Flagg). As Dusty and Chris battle to win on and off the track and mechanic Rocket Anderson (Frank McHugh) keeps their powerful machines running, everyone works together to save the failing motorcycle company run by Mr. Barton (Robert Armstrong). Exciting footage of authentic flat-track and TT racing in 1951 is effectively integrated with shots of the actors and is believable, except for a preposterous stunt pulled by Dusty in his first race that will leave fans of the real thing laughing. A fun "B" movie, flawed by the message that cheating is an acceptable way to win motorcycle races. Dozens of vintage British and American bikes are a highlight. With bad boy Dusty and nice guy Chris competing for the checkered flag and Eve's heart, which do you think will win?
