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 movie's climax race used actual race footage from the Talladega Superspeedway motor-sports complex. Close-ups for the finale were filmed at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, Hampton, Georgia. The latter was known as the Atlanta International Raceway during the time of filming, its name being changed in 1990. Previously, the opening scenes of the earlier Burt Reynolds
movie Smokey and the Bandit II
(1980) had also been shot at the Atlanta track. See more
