Lincoln Hawk (Stallone) is a struggling trucker who arm wrestles on the side to make extra cash while trying to rebuild his life. After the death of his wife, he tries to make amends with his son who he left behind 10 years earlier. Upon their first meeting, his son does not think too highly of him until he enters the World Arm Wrestling Championships in Las Vegas. His hope is to receive the grand prize of $100,000 and an expensive current custom semi-truck and thus start his own trucking company.Written by

David Engelbach was appalled at the changes made to his script. He recalled having tears in his eyes when he saw the film. He remarked that his original draft wasn't nearly as dumb as the final film and that it was more about truck driving and arm-wrestling than it should've been. See more »
When Lincoln Hawk is announced as the last finalist, he sits in front of the truck with his right elbow wrapped in a towel. The shot cuts away, and when it comes back to Hawk, the towel is in his back pocket and he puts it on again. See more »
How long will it take?
Well, I've got one more pick up. And say, two to three days, we'll be in California. And your mother doesn't go into surgery, say, until Wednesday morning.
Do you really think you can make up 10 years in two to three days?

One Of Sylvester Stallone's Best Movies, In My Opinion
This movie really touched base with me. I grew up not knowing my father, so I really felt for "Michael Cutler", played by David Mendenhall. This was the first thing I remembered seeing David in and I became a big fan of his thru this movie. I identified with his character so much.
If only there would have been a sequel to this movie. (+:
