Errors in geography 

The racers are shown driving through mountainous terrain even when they are supposed to be in parts of the country such as New Jersey and Missouri that don't have any mountains of this type.

Miscellaneous 

In the theatrical version and all video versions up to the "Roger Corman's Classics" release, there were some errors that have since been corrected. Traffic has been cropped from the shot when Machine Gun Joe runs over the man hanging the "Frankenstein" banner on the street (which previously made nonsense of the earlier newscast of "citizens staying off the streets"). A crewmember previously visible when Joe runs down the fisherman has also been cropped out.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

After Frankenstein has reaches the finish line, a shot clearly shows him using his right hand to lift himself up and out the car, despite his navigator having removed it just a couple minutes before. This is because this is actually the navigator posing as Frankenstein. This shot is a clue to Frankenstein's final ruse, and thus not an error.
