An exciting stock car race highlights the episode. Will and Sonny are carrying stock cars to a man who races a fleet of them, at the Charlotte, N. C. speedway, but the guy cons them into driving for him in the big race, to earn the money he can't pay them for the load. The plot thickens when our heroes hook up with a has-been driver (guest star Rory Calhoun) and invoke the wrath of the dastardly villain for whom they're supposed to be racing. Stay tuned for the climatic race — it's a cliffhanger all the way. ..
