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.

once said of this movie: "The racing world makes you feel like you're 12 years old again in a very nice kind of a way. 'Stroker Ace' tries to capture that spirit. My involvement with NASCAR put the bounce back in my step. I think that the movie, if we are successful, will do the same for audiences." See more
