Trace Bonham is living large as the teen driver for a pro Super Stock racing team. He’s on billboards and on the road instead of stuck in school. And he’s blowing away the competition wherever he races. But Trace is worried that those who think his crew is illegally "juicing" his engine may be right. It's up to him to discover what is going on--and what he's going to do about it.
