Storyline

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 Dennis Lewis <dsl@sprynet.com>

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When the officer gives Chuck and Casey a ticket for trespassing on the drag strip, the landscape is flat. In the next shot, mountains can be seen in the background. See more »

Great old movie. Loved it when it came out and still do. Nice hot rods. Although some of the drag racing scenes appear to be 'sped up', the road racing scenes are really nice.
