Storyline

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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Prior to being cast, director Hal Needham visited star Burt Reynolds on the set of Best Friends (1982). Needham, who had signed on as director for this movie, said: "Even though I didn't ask Burt to star in 'Stroker' - I knew his schedule was pretty full - he called me a short while later to tell me he wanted to be in it. I guess Burt realized he'd have a good time working on the movie and that it would be a fun one for people to see. Since I love working with Burt, I naturally accepted his offer. After all, 'Stroker Ace' is the kind of movie Burt and I do best." See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Stroker Ace: What are you doin' now, Dad?
Dad Seegle: Oh, I make jewelry.
[Dad shows a piece of jewelry to Stroker and Pembrook]
Stroker Ace: Oh, that's real pretty, isn't it? What do you make it out of?
Dad Seegle: Organic matter? Manure.
Stroker Ace: Kinda makes you the Cartier of ca-ca.

Burt Reynolds is on his best in this film filled with super charged action!
15 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Stroker Ace,a film directed by Hal Needham (the same director of such souped-up hits,like Smokey and The Bandit and Hooper),is a real surprise for the audience!it offers a lot of fun and laughs,all of this accomplished by dangerous and incredible scenes of action,which make Speed look like a boring movie!the character was made for Burt Reynolds,and combines with his own personality and way of interpretation!it's a nice movie,that everybody should discover,specially because it symbolizes a time when what really counted in the box-offices was the protagonist's charisma,and not stupid special effects!good times,when Burt was the best...and this time is going to be back!
