Hi-Riders is a 1978 action film written and directed by Greydon Clark.[1]


Mark and Lynn (Darby Hinton and Diana Peterson) get caught up in a story of hatred and revenge after trying to collect on a bet with a "Hi-Rider," a car club known for drag racing and, as the title says, having the rear of their cars "jacked up" much higher than stock. The Hi-Riders are challenged to a drag race by one of the local hot heads and in a spectacular explosion both drivers are killed. The local boy's father vows revenge. A fantastic stunt filled chase ensures between the Hi-Riders and the local henchman. Whipped into a blazing frenzy of violence the Hi-Riders are humping hot steel hogs on a raging rampage through the town.


The film was released theatrically in the United States by Dimension Pictures in 1978.

The film was released on a double feature DVD with Clark's The Bad Bunch by VCI Home Entertainment in 2010.
