A long, long, long convoy of crude jokes, profanities and sexual innuendos accompany Ricky Bobby’s rise to fame on the NASCAR circuit. Passionate heterosexual smooching and a couple of lingering homosexual kisses are combined with the abundant discussion of male anatomy, sexual quirks and illicit activities. Ricky’s two vulgar-mouthed boys and his weed-peddling father cause some trouble at home. But Ricky’s life is totally upset when his wife leaves him for his best friend. In a fit of rage, the abandoned driver punches a man in the face and stabs himself in the leg with a knife. Cigarettes, excessive alcohol use and illegal drug use are also portrayed or discussed.
