A wealthy Texan seeks a trucker who can bootleg Coors beer into Georgia for him. He finds Bo “the Bandit” Darville, at a rodeo in Atlanta and offers him $80,000 to bring him 400 cases of Coors from Texarkana in 28 hours. But as the Bandit is set to begin the second leg of his journey, he is stopped by a runaway bride, Carrie, who wants to hitch a ride. The Bandit agrees but ends up becoming the target of Sheriff Buford T. Justice, whose son’s bride Carrie was to be. Sheriff Justice and his dimwitted Junior begin chasing Bandit, all the way to Georgia to get Carrie back.
