  • The champion race car driver Tommy Morton is the eternal rival to less-ethical speed king Larry 'Skids' Brannigan. What no one knows is that Tommy and Skids are actually brothers, separated at birth. Driven by a filial devotion that he can't explain, Tommy tries to dissuade Skids from recklessness, only to be "repaid" when Skids tries to steal away Tommy's blond girl-friend Eileen Hart.

  • Orphan brothers, Tommy Morton (Charles Quigley) and Larry Brannigan (Eddie Nugent), separated at birth and adopted by different families), are, years later, thrown together by their mutual love of car-racking. They are unaware that they are brothers but later, when, Larry, the more egoistical and irresponsible of the brothers, accidentally kills a fellow race-car driver and almost kills his brother during a race, is their relationship revealed.
