Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Wallace Reid plays one of his speed demon roles in this picture, which is based on the Saturday Evening Post story, "The Hippopotamus Parade" by Byron Morgan. Dusty Rhoades (Reid) leaves just about everybody in the dust when he steps on the gas pedal. But this talent does nothing to win over Patrick MacMurran (Charles Ogle), the father of his sweetheart, Virginia (Lois Wilson). MacMurran owns a truck company and suggests that if Dusty does a good job of publicizing his trucks, he might give the union his blessings. So Dusty goes to work but fails miserably until the day the Cabrillo dam is about to burst. He loads up a shipment of dynamite onto five MacMurran trucks and leads them through nearly impassable roads to their destination just in the nick of time. Because he has saved the day, Dusty wins his girl.
