  • Elvis is a stock car racer who owes Uncle Sam a great deal of money but can't pay because his skirt-chasing manager gambled away all his winnings. Nancy Sinatra helps out as a lovely I.R.S. agent.

    With fellow heartthrob Nancy Sinatra riding shotgun, Elvis Presley moves to the fast lane in this action/comedy set in the world of stock car racing.

    Steve Grayson has long been king of the race track, so he's surprised when the IRS - in the person of slinky agent Susan Jacks - starts breathing down his neck about $145,000 in unpaid taxes.

    The stock car star learns that his manager has been blowing his contest winnings at a racing arena of another kind, betting on horses. Now Steve must win all of his races not only to keep his title, but to pay his debt to the Taxman.
