Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Reckless driver Bill Sanford (William Fairbanks) is finally thrown out of his wealthy father's home when his mania for speed proves impossible to curb. Undaunted, Bill becomes a race-car driver, hoping to prove his worth to his dad by winning a $5000 prize. This he does, just in time to save his father from being victimized in a fraudulent land deal. Having learned to temper his "speed madness" with responsibility, Bill also wins the love of heroine Betty Hampton (Edith Roberts). Speed Mad was scripted by Dorothy Howell, a popular comedienne of the era.
