Brief Synopsis

Stunt driver Cliff Jordan (Richard Arlen) takes a job with his old pal Jerry McGee (Richard Travis), branch manager of an express trucking firm. Jerry is married to Mary (Jean Rogers), Cliff's former girl friend. Also working for Jerry is Pete Simmons (Pat Phelan), son of the owner Al Simmons (Paul Harvey), and office secretary Jane Chandler (Nanette Parks), who is Pete's sweetheart. Before long, Cliff has made enemies of Pusher Wilks (Ian MacDonald), a trucker whose run he takes over, and also Pete, whose girl he is trying to take over. Pusher sabotages Cliff's rig at every opportunity causing several near-fatal accidents.
