Description by OLDIES.com:
Billy Coy is a tough Irish lad with dreams of making it big and a taste for trouble. The fearless Billy claws his way up the racing ladder, disregarding the consequences of his reckless drinking and womanizing. Uncle Red Stanley (Thomas Mitchell) supports Billy all the way to the glory of the Indianapolis 500, where the furious thrills of speed and alcohol threaten to derail Billy's raceway ambitions.
The Big Wheel spins a pulse-quickening racing adventure with action-packed photography, anchored by first rate performances from Mickey Rooney and Thomas Mitchell.
The ambitious son of an accomplished race driver struggles to outrun his father's legacy and achieve his own successes.
