(1 vote)

Harry passes over the line first but his girl in the passenger seat lets out the fact they piled onto a plane with their car to get here first and he is dragged away for cheating. Coy Buckman wins the race but discovers that his brother was killing all the other racers so that Coy could win as he placed a bet. If he lost the bet he would be killed. Discovering this coy ripps up his slip of paper to prove he won and set off to find his girl friend, after she was injured and coys best friend 'zippo' was killed in a car crash that coys brother 'Benny' caused.As coy walks out benny is dragged off into a car, (possible the gun sound you hear when the B.M.W set off was him being shot?) The boy and his girlfriendin the Corvet stingray pass the line and are condemmed the winners.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cannonball is driving the Mustang and Redman is driving the Charger through the incomplete Interstate, they begin bashing each others' cars to bits. Several shots show the badly damaged cars and the results of the multiple hits taken. However, when we are shown the cars just before the bridge jump sequence, neither car appears damaged.
