Stock car racer Steve Grayson spends most of his earnings helping Abel Esterlake, a poverty-stricken father of several little girls, though he still has enough left over to support a lavish lifestyle. Unknown to him, his manager, Kenny Donford, has lost the remainder of Steve's prize money by gambling on horses. To recover $145,000 in back taxes, Internal Revenue Service chief R. W. Hepworth assigns Susan Jacks to investigate the racer's finances and manage his affairs until the government debt is paid. Susan and Steve soon fall in love, despite initial antagonism, and together they try to obtain the money he owes. While qualifying for a high-paying race, Steve has an accident that seriously damages his car. His friends repair the car, and at the last minute Steve enters the race. Though he places third, he wins enough laps to pay most of his debt, leaving him free to continue his romance with Susan.
