Universal Newspaper Newsreel title card reads,"Venice, Cal / Auto demons beak records! -Monkey drivers compete in speed classic replete with thrills, spills, and chills" Monkeys race on a dirt track in little race cars. The cars continue forward as the monkeys jump around the car and onto the ground. There is a nice side shot of four cars smashing into each other. One monkey waves a checkered flag and the winner is shown posing in the small car and the scene ends. Title reads, "Gold Cup won by Hotsy Totsy at pace of 52 miles an hour / Red Bank, N.J." Speed boats fly through the water. Each boat has two men in them and there are various shots of the boats as they make turns and pass one another. The winners pose with a large U shaped trophy.
