Race with the Devil is an action horror film about two couples who get more than they bargain for when they take a trip into a desolate part of Texas. Roger and Frank are longtime friends. In their spare time, they like to find places where they can ride their dirt bikes. One weekend, they gather their wives and leave San Antonio in an RV on a typical weekend excursion. These four people obviously know each other, like each other, and enjoy being around each other. The first day seems fun enough as the boys let loose on their bikes while the girls take time to catch up on each other's lives. The night, however, goes very differently. Roger and Frank stay up late drinking and talking while their wives turn in early. The two men idly discuss life and dreams until they see a bonfire ignite in a field across a stream. A group of hippies surround the campfire and start dancing in seductive ways. Roger and Frank are initially intrigued that they are about to witness an orgy. The dance soon turns dark though and a naked girl is murdered in a Satanic ritual. The wives get curious as to what their husband's are up to and come out to check on them. The noise and the lights from the RV alert the cultists to their presence. Panicked, the couples flee in the RV without even breaking camp. The cultists chase them in order to protect their dark secrets. The couple manages to evade the initial pursuers and report the incident to the police. The police ask them if they were drinking that night. They are disinclined to believe these strangers. The truth is the police are cultists themselves. As the couple continues to try and find help, they soon realize the scope of this cult is much broader than any could imagine.
