Shot on location in Miami, Racing Fever is concerned with a professional hydroplane racer named Pop Gunner, who's getting ready for one last race before passing his crown on to his son Lee. Pop's main competition is the wealthy, but oily, Gregg Stevenson, who also happens to be having an affair with Pop's daughter Linda. Gregg is the sort of irresponsible lout who thinks nothing of driving his boat while drunk, which results in him killing Pop during the big race. Thanks to his influence and money, Gregg gets off scot-free, which angers Lee. Things aren't helped when Linda continues her affair with the man who murdered their father, and they get even more complicated when Lee takes up with Gregg's daughter, Connie. Eventually, things come to a head when Lee takes Gregg on in a boat race that will finally settle the score between them.
