Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This hastily assembled programmer stars Wallace MacDonald as a car mechanic who invents a revolutionary new carburetor. To prove the efficiency of his creation, MacDonald enters an important auto race. It soon develops that our hero is in direct competition with a car owned by Lionel Belmore, the father of his girl friend Elaine Hammerstein. This potentially sticky situation is forgotten when MacDonald proves that rival racer Jack Reese has sabotaged Belmore's auto. No great shakes for most of its running time, Checkered Flag springs into life during the climactic chase sequence.
