An automotive romp in Louisiana
22 May 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

Big Bob Johnson is the fearless leader of his Fantastic Speed Circus. It is a Hell Drivers/Joie Chitwood-type show that goes to fairgrounds and racetracks. Bob has a Trans Am and a Peterbilt conventional with a flatbed trailer. Somehow Bob's team gets into a scavenger hunt in Lousiana. There's a Rolls-Royce in this movie. I remember Rodney Allen Rippy being a little black boy who doesn't know how to drive. But he has to get away in the Rolls-Royce from some guys, and he learns to drive really fast. The climax of the movie is jumping the Rolls-Royce onto the moving flatbed. Having mastered that, Bob wants to duplicate the stunt using the Trans Am in the Speed Circus.
