Dragstrip Girl is a 1957 film starring John Ashley in his first lead role.[1] His girlfriend was auditioning for a part in the movie and Ashley accompanied her; while there, Lou Rusoff asked him to audition and he was successful, using an Elvis Presley imitation. Ashley's girlfriend did not get the part.[2] American International Pictures released the film as a double feature with Rock All Night.

The film was remade later that year as Motorcycle Gang (1957).[3]
