Cast & Crew
Tex and his sidekick Slim ride into the town of Peeko to help out Tex's old friend, Ace Hutchinson, the foreman of the Peeko Stage Line. The stage line, owned by Jane Winters, is being sabotaged by Storm and his gang, who are plotting to take over the line for themselves. Because a race of the coaches will determine who will be awarded the stage franchise, Storm determines to eliminate Tex and orders his gang to steal $2,000 raised at a church benefit and plant it in Tex's saddlebags. In case the law fails to remove Tex, Storm then hires Mule Bates to kill him. Unknown to Storm, however, Tex has befriended Bates's little son, and so Bates informs Tex of Storm's plot. Tex and Bates stage a duel for Storm's benefit, but Storm double-crosses Bates and shoots him. On the day of the race, Tex takes the coach reins from Ace, fends off Storm's treachery and wins the franchise for Jane. At the finish line, Storm is arrested on Bates's testimony, and Tex is exonerated of all charges.
