Dragstrip Riot (1958)

This is the story of teenage youths who live as fast as their hot rods will carry them.

The newcomer to the gang, Rick Martin (Gary Clarke), is running away from his past. His flight is hampered by a gang of motorcyclists who throw a reign of terror over his very existence.

Courage is measured as drag races are performed on railroad tracks, the climax building up to a free-for-all between the two gangs.

All this is accompanied by rock and roll numbers and actual flat races at Santa Barbara, California.
