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.

The word stroker, in racing jargon, refers to an after-market crankshaft that increases the engine's stroke, or length of piston travel, which will increase the engine's displacement and therefore the horsepower.
Stroker also refers to a driver who intentionally does not try to "charge to the front" and is content to "ride around" (during the race) and post a "safe" finishing position. Front running race drivers do not like "strokers" for a variety of reasons. See more
