Trivia: Death Race 2000
  • Follow the Leader: Made quickly to cash in on the "futuristic blood sport" genre created by Rollerball. Ironically, it seems to be better respected by some critics than the earlier film because of its dark sense of humor.
  • Playing Against Type: It was early in his career, so his type wasn't established yet, but still, the film features Sylvester Stallone playing a mouthy Jerk Ass villain.
    • David Carradine took the role immediately after walking off the set of Kung Fu, to avoid being Typecast.
  • What Could Have Been: Peter Fonda was offered the part of Frankenstein.
