Three truckers, Martin ‘Rubber Duck’ Penwald, Bobby ‘Pig Pen’ and Spider Mike as they set off across the country. Harassed by a local Sheriff, Lyle ‘Cottonmouth’ Wallace, who uses his powers to extort money and has a particular dislike for truckers. Rubber Duck has a long-standing feud with the Sheriff which boils over when the truckers refuse to give into his extortion attempts. This results in a cross-state, even inter-state chase, and grows in magnitude as more and more trucks join the rebels, forming a convoy.
