A down on his luck race car driver named Larry (Peter Fonda) and his friend/mechanic Deke (Adam Roarke) rob a supermarket in hopes to get enough money to build a dream race car, which they plan on using to win on the NASCAR circuit. Larry's latest fling, Mary (Susan George) ends up tagging along with the two petty criminals and that's when all the outrageous fun begins. This film is filled with amazing car stunts and thrilling high speed chases. The dialogue is sharp, witty and hilarious and it co-stars Vic Morrow as the head of the police force who is chasing the three outlaws down. A classic 70s carsploitation-crime film.
