The main character's name is Tom Weaver... same last name as Duel's main actor. A pickup truck in the garage has "GREBLIEPS PAINTING" written on it. Greblieps is Spielberg spelled backwards. Early in the movie we can see somebody who looks just like Dennis Weaver driving by in a red Valiant, the same car that Weaver drives in "Duel". The black car is very similar to Duel's truck (massive, black windows, you can't see the driver, etc.)

The elaborate truck chase sequence, from the Jeep's color, to the stretch of roadway and even the final topple off the side of the cliff
Two scenes: one shows the lizard seen in the car window as a hommage to the truck seen in David Mann's car window. The other is when Petar runs accross the road and suddenly stops when he spots the lizard at the other end, waiting, almost the same when Mann stops his car when he spots the truck waiting for him at the other end of the road.
Stalked by a semi-truck without seeing the driver
