Synopsis

Steve Grayson is a stock car racing champion whose prowess on the track is matched by his generosity in sharing his winnings with people in need. Partly as the result of his philanthropies but more largely due to the fact that his manager, Kenny Donford, has been losing Steve's winnings by betting on slow horses, Steve finds himself-spectacularly in arrears on his income tax payments. The Internal Revenue Service sends Susan Jacks to check up on Steve and straighten everything out.
After a few misunderstandings, all the plot twists are unraveled; Steve begins paying back his income tax and wins Susan.
