On a dry lake bed in the early morning hours, Jack unloads a machine, part motorcycle and part jet and suits up. As his speed builds he thinks back to the events that brought him here. A childhood memory of a bicycle race plays out in his head. It ends with the town bullies wrecking his hand made bike. Back in the present, he punches the button and the afterburner fires, rocketing the bike forward towards breaking the speed record. Local cops give chase and the dash to the speed record ends in a fiery crash. Jack emerges from the wreckage with the broken speedometer and presents it to the arriving cops as proof he holds the new speed record.
