A young man named Speed Racer wants to become a professional racer, despite the lack of approval from his father, Pops Racer. When Pops reluctantly quits his job after the corporate company he was working for had declined the production of a modified engine for his new racing car, the Mach 5, he later thinks of creating his own family owned company, Racer Motors. He realizes that he would need a great amount of money to make his idea work. Speed, who values the welfare of his family, decides to take it upon himself to obtain the money for Pops. In hopes of using his unique driving skills to do so, Speed decides to do what he does best and enters a race. Pops tells Speed to quit racing, but Speed, who is confident enough to ignore Pops, drives away into many different adventures that come towards him and his friends.
