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.

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
