The Hammerton team are having trouble during preparations for qualifying at California's Riverside. Led by Lee Hammerton, now that her father and brother have been killed, she brings in Mark Slade to be responsible for security. Slade was last year's runner-up at IROC, but lost his nerve and hid himself away in rural obscurity, all the while guarding his secret. But even with Slade there, the team is still plagued with mishaps: a mechanic is murdered, the main car is sabotaged and Slade survives a couple of murder attempts. And hanging over it all is the legend of the Hammerton curse.
