The agency is hired by mechanic Jerry Adams following the death of his business partner, modified stock car racer Suzy Lemson. Suzy died in a race accident at Corbin Speedway when her car exploded upon impact hitting a wall. Jerry, who built Suzy's car, believes that Suzy was murdered, which he cannot prove on his own not having access to her car following her death to see if it had been tampered with to cause the crash when the car was bumped by fellow racer, "Bloody" Mary Barrows. Beyond Mary whose track exploits are regarded as less than ethical, the other leading suspect is Mary's mechanic, Ted Kale, who had a thing for Suzy. Another reason Jerry is suspicious is that Suzy had been worried about something unspecified the few days leading up to the race, this which Kelly is able to confirm with Suzy's unsuspecting parents by their worried silence. Shortly into the investigation, two further suspects emerge: Eddie Dirko, Suzy's ex-boyfriend from South Carolina who has recently been ... Written by Huggo

Packed with plot...and plenty of sexy action
21 February 2009 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Some of these early episodes of "Charlie's Angels" have enough plot for a TV movie...with the strong production elements and solid supporting casts worthy of a television feature. A tragic auto accident out on the dustbowl racecar circuit leads the Angels to believe there was dirty pool being played out on the track, but that's just the first half of the story. Sabrina (who it turns out did a little racecar driving in her youth!) poses as the new driver--with a Texas drawl; Bosley and Jill are father and daughter Holy Rollers; Kelly does some leg-work interviewing the victim's parents (in a sensitive scene) and later joins the gang at the arena, amusingly getting one suspect arrested for drunk driving. Exceptionally well-plotted installment, though I doubt Jill would be so sloppy as to leave evidence behind in a motel room, or that all her nosy questions would be overlooked by the locals with just a flash of her blinding-white smile.
