Casey Owens (James Darren), a young mechanic, has developed a design for a turbine car engine, paving the way for a jet-powered auto certain to set a new land speed record. Wealthy playboy Stanford Rogers (Peter Mann) hires Casey to build the car for him to race in the Tri-State Endurance Run. Chuck Manning (Doug McClure), an engineering student Casey met in a drag race, discovers potential flaws in the car's design. After an unsuccessful test run, Rogers abandons the turbine-powered car for a traditional racing model, but Casey and Chuck rework the turbine vehicle to compete with Rogers in the endurance run. Pamela Tiffin plays Eadie, Chuck's sister who becomes Casey's love interest. Written by

When Chuck (Doug McClure) allows for a one second throttle lag, when he calculates the quarter mile time for the jet car, this may be true, but a drag racer would compensate for this by trying to launch early to allow for the lag time. See more »
Casey and Chuck lose the hood on their car. In the next shot, from inside the car looking out the windshield, the hood is still visible. See more »
that was a pretty harsh review. I thought it was light and entertaining and enjoyed the old school racing scenes. This movie is not much different than the Elvis Presley movies of that era ... the acting wont blow you away but it will entertain you, seems like most reviewers agree.
BTW, it was racer Dave MacDonald who did some of the driving scenes for this film, he also appears in a cameo role. He was killed in the 1964 Indy 500 before the movies release date.
Pamela Tiffin is gorgeous so it was a pretty easy movie to watch.
I believe it was Bobby Darin who did the soundtrack
