Mabel and her beau go to an auto race and are joined by Charlie and his friend. As Charlie's friend is attempting to enter the raceway through a hole, the friend gets stuck and a policeman shows up.


A reviewer from Bioscope wrote, "Charles Chaplin, as the very broke gentleman who is anxious to make love to all the pretty girls assembled to watch some daring motor-races, manages to obtain an abundance of humor out of every situation. It is just the type of film that audiences have grown to appreciate with great gusto."

Motion Picture News commented, " Charlie, Chester and Mabel attend an auto race. Results? As laughable as were ever pictured."
