Trivia

Star Tommy Kirk did not remember the movie fondly. He said co-star Janes Dobson was an insensitive jerk. Also, Kirk was fooling around with drugs at the time so he was about half awake in the film. He said he sort of walked through it and took the money. He felt it wasn't as a completely useless piece of trash like some of the other things he did, but it's not much of a film. See more »

Covers much the same ground as the Elvis opus Speedway, hardly a high water mark in Presley's filmography, only without the songs or a magnetic presence like the King of Rock & Roll. Basically a bunch of stock footage of cars going in circles intercepted with some badly acted scenes of backstage shenanigans.

The ill-fated Brenda Benet is lovely even saddled with an enormous helmet of ratted hair and there's 50's sci-fi queen and failed Howard Hughes discovery Faith Domergue as one character's mother to spur some interest in the film but it's a minor enterprise.
