A brain-dead hayseed named Troy Slackherd's been caught red-handed trying to hijack an eighteen-wheeler filled with die-cast toy race cars. The culprit's the step-brother of pro-racing's most popular speed demon, Junior Senior Jr.--which means Redball's returning, against his will, to the 180 m.p.h. world of gas fumes, adrenaline, and treacherous curves. When the truckful of toys leads to a lockerful of cash--and to perfidy, porn, loser Louisiana wiseguys . . . and murder--Redball realizes he's back in the race for good or ill. And he'll have to keep moving . . . or die.
