Stopping briefly in a small Texas town, an itinerant race car driver finds that his stock car, on a trailer behind his motor home, has just been quickly and expertly stripped. He chases down the miscreants, who turn out to be six orphan children. He has no recourse to the law, for the corrupt local sheriff takes most of the proceeds of their thievery in exchange for not putting them in an orphanage. They are charming rogues who are in turn charmed by him. Disliking their arrangement with the sheriff, they stow away with him, and he finds himself becoming a reluctant stepfather. Thanks to their enthusiasm and incredible mechanical know-how, he begins to make a name for himself on the racing circuit. But the sheriff doesn't take kindly to losing his extra income... Written by

While Brewster is in the bar, the kids are out in the parking lot raiding other race cars for parts to put back on Brewster's car. One of the kids is shown removing the lug nuts off a potential donor car. The wheels on this car have the standard lug pattern common to stock production vehicles. Brewster's car is running wide five hubs on all four corners. While the potential is there to use the tires, the rims would be useless and thus make for a pretty senseless heist, seeing as how his car needs both rims and tires. See more
