This routine auto adventure finds Jack Grant (William Fairbanks) agreeing to drive in the big race in order to save his brother Carl (Philo McCullough) from being charged with embezzlement. He wins the race and the heart of the auto-builder's daughter Grace Danton (Eva Novak). Stock footage of an actual car race is effectively inserted, with famous racing driver Ralph De Palma making a cameo appearance as the champion. Edwin Booth Tilton, Frankie Darro, Wilfred Lucas, and Lydia Knott co-star in this film reminiscent of some of the racing pictures of Wallace Reid.
