The movie follows the life of a young boy named Watts Davies (played by Rothhaar), who dreams of becoming a professional race car driver. But his father, played by Randy Quaid, a former racing champion himself, is against the idea, fearing for his son's safety.

Watts is passionate about go-kart racing and spends most of his time at the local go-kart track, where he trains and races with his group of friends. One day, while competing in a race with a rival team, Watts meets an experienced mechanic and former professional racer, Scott McKenna (played by Joe Dinicol). Scott offers to coach him and helps him improve his skills.

At the same time, Watts' father is struggling with financial difficulties and is at risk of losing his job. He sees an opportunity for Watts to earn some money by entering him into a local go-kart championship race, with a cash prize of $5,000. Despite his reservations, Watts enters the race and begins to prepare for it with Scott's guidance.

As the race approaches, tensions rise between Watts' father and Scott, who have conflicting ideas about how Watts should race. Watts ultimately chooses to follow Scott's advice, leading to a falling out between Watts and his father.

The championship race proves to be a tough challenge for Watts and his team, as they are up against some of the best go-kart racers in the region. The race is filled with intense moments, with several crashes and near-misses, but Watts manages to stay focused and push through to the end.
