The local highschool is threatened to be closed, unless they collect $200,000. The students' president Melissa struggles to collect the money, but lacks the support from her fellow students. So she accepts when car fetishist Dylan suggests to bet on him in car races against underworld king Phatman. At first everything goes well - too well ...Written by

The football field where Fast Freddy's car is hidden and the twin cities run ends is actually at Apollo High School also in St. Cloud. See more »
In the movie it's stated that Fast Freddy successfully completed the "Twin City Run" thirty years ago. As the movie presumably takes place in 1989, that would mean that the race took place in 1959. When Monkey explains to Dylan everything he did to tune up Fast Freddy's 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, he says that the car has a 427 big-block engine. The 1957 Bel Air was not factory available with a 427 ci engine (or any big-block engine for that matter) and even if the motor was retrofitted into the car, the Chevy 427 did not exist in 1959, as it was not introduced until 1963 (as a special option) and not mass produced until 1966.

The plot of this film is not strong at all, lots of holes. If you approach it as a car movie its not bad, lots of great cars in this one. The reason I like it is because I am from the area where this was filmed. I get the most enjoyment looking at the recognizable places in St. Cloud MN and seeing how the town has changed since 89. Its an interesting historical piece for us locals. Seems like whenever a film is made here everyone wants some relationship to it. It is impossible to find a copy in any of the local video stores as they were all stolen once it came out on VHS. Had to get a copy from Japan on Ebay I find it interesting how the path of the drag race is all over town. I didn't know the director was from St.Cloud.
