Arny, is the newest member, and the best mechanic and race driver in the Road Devils CC. He drives a dropped and frenched Merc that no one can beat on the track with his new race cam.

At a party, Terry dumps him for not fitting in when he shows up in club clothes instead of a suit. She dances with another club member, Hank and a fight between the two men is stopped by Jim Lawrence, but Ray Johnson, pretending friendship with Arny, keeps the antagonism going and tries to win Terry for himself.

Driving home, Hank and Terry are harassed by a hot rod which they think is driver by Arny. Swerving to avoid a collision, they are thrown from the car, and Hank is killed and Terry badly injured and unconscious. Ray, the actual driver of the hot rod, carries Terry to his car, but frightened by approaching vehicles, he returns her to the wreckage and flees.

All, including Terry, blame Arny for the wreck, but there is no proof. Vindictive club members destroy Arny’s car by pouring grinding compound in his crank case and beat him mercilessly.

Terry goes to the race with Ray and, in his car she finds an earring she lost in the accident and realizes it was Ray who drove the fatal car.

Arny wins the race, sour disposition and all, wins the race and Terry forces Ray to admit the truth about the wreck. Ray apologizes, the club apologizes, but Arny doesn’t care. Even Terry apologizes…it takes in a minute, but of course he caves and they split together in the Merc with the $1500 race prize money.

The End.
