Synopsis: Driving down a desert highway in the dead of night, Ghost Rider happens across a truck hijacking and deals out his fiery brand of justice to the criminals. Transforming back to Johnny Blaze at an old railroad yard, the biker jumps aboard a passing freight train and falls asleep. He is awoken by a pair of Laurel and Hardy-esque hobos who rob him and knock him unconscious. Blaze comes to the next morning with amnesia and jumps off the train, finding himself in the middle of a test track for a race car team. He befriends Gina Langtree, the beautiful daughter of the team's owner, who offers him a job as a mechanic. Sparks fly between Blaze and Gina, setting off tensions with one of the other mechanics. That night as the amnesiac biker sleeps, Ghost Rider manifests and drives off into the night, seeking vengeance but perplexed as to why Blaze's mind is closed to him. To be continued next issue in The Lonesome Death of Johnny Blaze!
