This is vintage Sly. Sly is a cross country hauler that finds out his wife is dying from a termal case of cameo-itis. Sly wants to raise his son in the life of a trucker, but his wife's dad, Robert "I'm not GK" Loggia wants to raise the kid to be an heir to his evil empire. Well we aren't told it's an evil empire, but he basically steals the kid from Sly in the movie, so it's implied. Sly teaches the kid to drive, he kills three senior citizens, on the way to the Arm Wrestling World Championship! He has to beat the best of the best while sonny boy does wild antics to escape Loggia's goons. The grand prise is a brand new big rig that will be his very own. With it he can start his own comp and run his life the way he wants. Straight into the ground.
