User Ratings: 8,301
Rating: 1/5 -- Yee-Haw good ol' boys Carradine and Stallone inlow budget feature.
Jan 11, 2008
Rating: 1/4 -- It tries for the greatest realism in its obligatory shots of gas tanks exploding, and yet includes such absurdities as a local news helicopter that tracks all of the competitors all the way from LA to New York. Full Review

Product Description:

High energy action film about an illegal & lengthy marathon road race where the goal is to make it to the finish without being arrested or incinerated. Look for cameos from cult directors Martin Scorcese and Roger Corman.

Plot Synopsis:

Non-stop action ensues when a variety of offbeat characters compete in a no-holds-barred, cross-country race from Los Angeles to New York.
Up for grabs in the Trans-American Grand Prix is $100,000... and some of the determined drivers will do anything to collect the dough.
Among the participants are veteran racer "Cannonball" Buckman and the villainous Cade Redman. Although Redman manages to beat up Buckman and knock him off the road more than once, the tough "Cannonball" won't be intimidated. No matter how much damage his car (and his body) sustains, Buckman just gets right back into the race. Meanwhile, he also finds time to romance Linda, another participant in the contest.
Who will be the first one to cross the finish line... and what condition will he or she and their automobile be in'

  • The film was rumored to be the most expensive film New World Pictures had made up to that point.
  • Additional credits: Cathy McCabe (assistant director).
  • Released in UK as "Carquake" by Harbor.
  • Color by Metrocolor.
