Tough trucker Lincoln Hawk is determined to win back his son and triumph at the world arm wrestling championships.
In one of the final matches Sylvester Stallone goes up against Mad Dog Maddison, played by Randy Raney. Interestingly, they would come up against each other again in Rambo III (1988). Rainey played the Russian Special Forces soldier who perished in the final scenes with a snapped neck and then blown to bits.
How long will it take?
Lincoln Hawk: Well, I've got one more pick up. And say, two to three days, we'll be in California. And your mother doesn't go into surgery, say, until Wednesday morning.
Michael Cutler: Do you really think you can make up 10 years in two to three days?
Lincoln Hawk: No.
When Mike is driving the white pick-up on the freeway, the inside of the cab is shown, and there are no keys in the ignition
The version broadcast on TV (most notably on TBS) contains a different version of the opening song "In This Country".
