During practice for the film, Rick Moliterno (one of the stunt riders for the film), broke his leg. This was written later into the film, when Cru is about to start the Helltrack race, but Rick, sitting on Christian's truck, asks him to sign his cast. See more »

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.
Everyone has guilty pleasures, this is totally one of mine!!!
You know, this movie on so many levels is probably not a 10, but I gave it one anyway, because since I first saw it in theatres, to now when I've probably seen it about 100+ times, I still am totally engaged and entertained by it. And to this day i still dream about finding my own special someone to go ass sliding with (don't ask , just see the movie). Plus any movie that has Ray Walston(My Favorite Martian) riding a BMX bike and flipping the Bird, is allright by me!!!
