When his kid brother─and his fancy rig─go missing in the California desert, trucker J.D. Dawes (Chuck Norris, in his first lead) hits the road in search of answers. He follows the treadmarks to a tank town run by a corrupt judge (George Murdock) who doesn't like truckers...and likes questioners even less. Pedal-to-the-floor action all the way with Terry O'Connor, Don Gentry, and Jack Nance. 86 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
