Motor Madness is a 1937 American drama film directed by D. Ross Lederman.[1]


After speedboat racing champion Joe Dunn wins a preliminary race, he is offered a bribe to deliberately lose the race for the championship. A fight ensues, and Joe is jailed and his girlfriend, Peggy McNeil, replaces him in the race.

Peggy crashes the boat and is seriously injured. Joe gets out of jail and desperately seeks money to pay for an operation to save Peggy's life.
