Youth on the loose, in 1950s suburbia, terrorize locals, in their supped-up hot roads.
Start your engines! It’s a race to the finish, to see whether a city backed racetrack will settle things down, or push the pedal to the metal.
Lisa, Lori Nelson, is worried about her fiancé Jeff, John Smith, after the death of his brother street racing.
Flattop, Frank Gorshin, and the other Hot rodders, who hang out at Yo-Yo’s, Fred Essler, burger joint, only went to the police sponsored Dragstrip, because of Jeff urging them; but, now he doesn’t want anything to do with it.
It’s only a matter of time, before police Detective Ben Merrill, Chuck Connors, has another accident, to clean up, when Bronc Talbot, Mark Andrews, rolls into town, and goads them into playing chicken.
