A wide variety of eccentric competitors participate in a wild and illegal cross-country road race. However, the eccentric entrants will do anything to win the road race, including low-down, dirty tricks.
Big and Little Enos are opening a sea food restaurant. They bet Sheriff Buford T. Justice that he cannot drive from Miami to the Enos ranch in Texas in a given amount of time. If Buford loses he has to give up his badge.
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

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 »
When Stroker enters the race track driving a car with only three wheels, using Lugs as a counterbalance, one shot reveals a block attached underneath the car that is actually keeping the car up on three wheels. See more »
Lugs, who's driving number 10?

Dreary comedy with Reynolds wasting himself on silly gags as a NASCAR driver going head to head with fried chicken mogul Beatty. Burt even dresses like a chicken and that's pretty much how the film operates. Jim Nabors won a much deserved Razzie for his performance and Anderson is neither sexy nor talented. Burt and director Needham's streak of films came to a crashing halt soon after this mess.
