Trenton Hiser is trying to walk in the big footsteps of his famous uncle, Mike Hiser, a Hollywood director. During Trenton's summer break from school, those footsteps take both of them into the high-pressure world of stock-car racing's top level. Following the Scarlet Thunder racing team from track to track, their goal is to show fans the inside story. As they try to film the 180-mile-per-hour action, though, too many things go wrong. And at that speed, mistakes can be deadly. When Trenton finds out that much more than races are at stake, it looks like he's in for a terrible crash of his own. Unless he can somehow steer everything in the right direction. . .
