“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

How bad is it? It's a pretty typical 1950s juvenile delinquency film. Should you see it? Not really.
A truck driver encounters a beautiful blonde on the highway, and then runs into her again at the local teen hang-out, where he happens to moonlight as a singer. She challenges him to a race - which she wins - and he gets arrested, because someone got killed near where they raced. He then decides to track down the real killer, a drug-runner, and things get tense. There's a few minor laughs, particularly in the acting of the gym owner, but this film is nothing special.
Added: Just saw the MST3K version. It adds nothing.
