In the hot sun, Scoop and Roley are carrying out repairs to the country lane. Travis and Spud are lounging in the shady tree, watching them work and teasing them for it. The teasing leads to Spud persuading Scoop and Travis to have a race that day to prove who is the fastest. Back at the farm, Travis is worried - he'll never beat Scoop. Spud tells him not to worry, he has a plan. Bob and Muck set up the race course as Spud spies on them. The race starts - Travis and Scoop race around the roads of the area with everyone cheering them on. Bob, on the Barn roof, provides racing commentary as they go. Spud sneakily obstructs Scoop's path with various objects. Despite his efforts his sabotage fails and Scoop triumphs. As Spud complains about Travis not winning, his sack of sabotage gear falls over and his cheating is discovered. Spud backs away from the machines making excuses for his behaviour and falls into the pond. There is much merriment when he emerges with a duck on his head!
