Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Teenager Rick Martin (Gary Clarke) promises his loving mom (Fay Wray) that he won't get into any fights any more-certainly no fights like the one that put him in jail a few months back. But Rick can't seem to stay out of trouble, especially when a bunch of motorcycle punks begin harrassing his drag-racing pals. During a fracas, one of the cyclists is killed, and the cops naturally blame Rick. He has to spend the rest of the film (which, at 68 minutes, isn't a lot of time) proving his innocence. Dragstrip Riot was originally released on a double bill with The Cool and the Crazy.
