Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) is the owner of a garage called Marshall Motors. He and his friends tune performance cars. As his business is struggling, he and his crew participate in street races after hours to earn extra. Tobey’s former rival Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper) arrives at their garage and offers to pay them around $2 million to complete the build of a rare Ford Shelby Mustang which was worked on by the late Carroll Shelby.
After the deal went sour, Dino challenged Tobey and Pete to a race. Dino offers to give up his cut from the Ford Shelby Mustang build if Tobey wins.Tobey also agreed to give his share to Dino if he loses as well as his cpa exam guide he’d saved up for for years. Because of the high wager, both sides were laser focused on winning. During the race, Dino realizes that he had no chance of winning. Out of desperation, he intentionally bumps Pete’s car, causing it to flip and fall into a ravine. Pete dies in the accident. Dino runs away from the scene, thus making Tobey the fall-guy for Pete’s death. Tobey was imprisoned and vowed to exact revenge on Dino once he gets out.
Two years later, Tobey is released on parole and he then sets out to find Dino and seek justice for the death of Pete. He then sets out on a nothing-to-lose mission to locate Dino and finally make him pay for killing Pete.
