Storyline

Ever since he lost his family in a terrible car accident, racecar driver Gary Stricker has become a reckless maniac on the track. No matter how much his coach Freddie tells him to cool it, he gets crazier every time he races his Porsche... until he meets Wendy Sheehan, who gives him a reason to live again. The problem is, she might also get him killed! Wendy's definitely hot, but she's got some killers hot on her trail. She and Gary find themselves in a desperate fight for their lives as the mysterious men shadowing Wendy try to put them both out of commission. When Gary learns of her secret past, he realizes he's the only one that can help her escape from it... or die trying! Written by Dario Smagata

What is Guttenberg & Wagner doing in a Corman production?
23 June 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This low grade would be action film gets real boring. Guttenberg plays a race car driver who is having trouble because of the loss of his wife and kid. But when an agent on the run (Models inc's Dobkins) enters into his life, and the action starts. Guttenberg look uncomfortable doing a low-budget Saban/Concorde co-production picture. In fact, he looks older than Wagner, who plays his race car pal. It's really strange to see Wagner sitting in a strip-bar, but I have to give him credit as he looks younger than Guttenburg and villain Stephen Meadows, both aged a lot. Dobkin, who played a nerdy secretary on "Models inc." is mis-cast. The film is just plain dull to be fun.
