Synopsis: Papa is taking his daughter Mabel to an automobile race. Mabel is in love with Teddy Tetzlaff, but Papa prefers Earl Cooper, and he schemes to try to prevent Tetzlaff from winning the race.

Reaction: So much of this one is taken up with shots of racing that really do little for the story.
