Stroker Ace, a champion NASCAR driver, is standing at the top of his career, but is getting fed up with having to do as he's told. In between rebelling against his sponsor (a fried chicken chain)'s promotion gimmicks (like making him dress up in giant chicken suit) he spends the rest of the movie trying to bed the buxom Pembrook.

This is the only real live action movie that Burt Reynolds
and Loni Anderson
made together though they both did do voice work for the animated pic All Dogs Go to Heaven
(1989). Reynolds and Anderson formed a relationship which lead to a five year marriage between 1988 and 1993, a marriage that began five years after this movie was made. Reportedly, their messy divorce drew much publicity from the media. The two first met on the set of The Merv Griffin Show
(1962) in 1981 but did not start dating until 1982. This movie was made and released in 1983. See more
During the start of the climactic 'final race of the season' the race cars are shown rolling onto the track from their pit road lineup positions. As they roll away, we see a closeup of a wheel and tire; the lettering on the tire (the word "Goodyear", etc.) is a reversed/mirror image. See more
