Scenes included in the final airing on the Canadian cable movie station Superchannel, but absent from the home video version;
A short sequence, actually made up of three different scenes, right after the confrontation at the Rad Racing T-Shirt stand. These scenes are;
Luke is sitting at the dinner table with his parents. His father tells him it isn't the end of the world. He excuses himself from the table.
Amy is sitting in her room listening to music when her mother comes in. They have a short exchange where her mother scolds her for acting childish.
An unnamed boy storms out of his house late at night.
Right after this comes a scene where a drunken Bart Taylor stumbles into the restaurant where Cru works just as it's closing. Shouting, Bart challenges him to a one on one race, since Cru has been disqualified from HellTrack. Bart winds up falling over and doing a face plant into a piece of pie on the table where the bald cop is sitting.
Another scene just before the race, after Duke Best has warned Bart about Cru and instructed the Reynolds twins to take him out;
Cru thanks Mr. Pratt for him and the town getting behind him and supporting Rad Racing. Mr. Pratt gives Cru a brand new bike from his store.
All of the characters from the deleted scenes are listed in the credits on the home video version.

totally rad, dude
my quest to find the movie rad has finally ended, my friends. i had been talking about it to my friends for years, but they never believed me. i was ridiculed by all. but finally i can prove that the greatest movie of all time (well maybe after cool hand luke and gladiator with james marshall and cuba gooding jr. which by the way is one hell of an underrated movie)really does exist - and it's totally RAD! watching it brings back memories when i was a kid. i used to watch it over and over and over again - i just finished it now and it's 3am but who the hell cares - i still remember the lines and the amazing stunts. rad has it all- a hot girl, a cool lead (what ever happened to you bill allen????), and bike racing! maybe today's film directors should take a gander at this masterpiece and remember that it's all made for fun. check you later dude!
