Uncle Grandpa hurries the guys so they can watch a commercial with him, the commercial talks about a huge race that's going to happen at the "Big Fat Race" and watching this commercial alone excites the guys to watch the race itself. Uncle Grandpa tells Mr. Gus that he loves the Big Fat Races and he proceeds to show him the tickets for the race, Pizza Steve can't wait for the brutal carnage, Mr. Gus agrees with him and he wonders that if their going to watch the race then who will be driving the RV, Uncle Grandpa said that he set the auto-pilot (Tiny Uncle Grandpas Driving). Uncle Grandpa states that they'll be at the race in no time, a news report on TV is warning people that the nail factory on Main Street has just exploded and to avoid Main Street with nails raining all over the street, Uncle Grandpa looks out the window and notices that they're on Main Street. The guys try to rush over to the cockpit to try and stop the auto-pilot meanwhile it's raining nails all over Main Street, Mr. Gus sits on the tiny Uncle Grandpas and takes control of the RV, the little Uncle Grandpas points out the nails on the street and Mr. Gus slams on the breaks.

Mr. Gus asks him what happened to the spare, Uncle Grandpa states that he need a place for his giant doughnut so he chucked the spare tire, Mr. Gus becomes disappointed and gets the idea to use the doughnut as a tire, but Uncle Grandpa already ate it. This gave Uncle Grandpa an idea to become the new tire since he's very flexible, and he always wondered how the other half lives and plus it could be fun! Uncle Grandpa proceeds to chuck the old tire out, Belly Bag tells Uncle Grandpa that he's going to sit this one out and Uncle Grandpa tells him that's a good idea, Uncle Grandpa then asks Belly Bag if he can hold onto his legs for him and Belly Bag eats his legs up. Uncle Grandpa moves his suspenders to his sides and he propels his body into the vacant tire spot saying that it's a perfect fit. Uncle Grandpa is now ready to fulfill the tire position and Mr. Gus asks Uncle Grandpa if he's sure he really wants to do this and Uncle Grandpa says "You Betcha", before Pizza Steve closes the door he asks Uncle Grandpa if he wants to change his mind and he says nope and to get this show on the road.

Gus gathers everyone back inside the RV and they talk about how Uncle Grandpa finally tipped over the edge of wackiness and they have to come up with a plan to make Uncle Grandpa see otherwise, Pizza Steve gets the idea about entering the RV in the Big Fat Race and that Uncle Grandpa won't last five minuets in the race, Belly Bag states that since it's the biggest race ever it should be tough on tires, Mr. Gus likes that idea and he opens the door to tell Uncle Grandpa that they have an idea on how he can stay a tire and watch the race at the same time and Uncle Grandpa likes the sound of that.

The Race announcer is speaking through the microphone asking the audience if they're ready for one heck of a competition because he knows he is and unfortunately he'll be watching from the stands with the audience since he's turning duties over to Tiger and Belly Bag, and the announcer gets chucked out of the window.

Evil Wizard then proceeds to mash up Uncle Grandpa's face with his spikes until Uncle Grandpa uses a nail file on the spikes, Evil Wizard then become disappointed and Uncle Grandpa gives the nail file to Evil Wizard. Pizza Steve and Mr. Gus aren't happy that that didn't work.

The racers are headed straight for the city and Belly Bag doesn't know what's worse for the racers, the city's neglected potholes or each other. Uncle Grandpa sees the potholes and decides to get his bounce on and he dodges all the potholes in his way. Two street guys in a low rider notices the RV and they thinks it's really tricked out. Uncle Grandpa tells the guys that they have to be more careful if they're going to win this thing and he returns to his tire form, Pizza Steve is laughing at Uncle Grandpa because he thinks he's going to win and then Pizza Steve tells Mr. Gus to get behind the monstrosity in front of them.

Belly Bag then appoints the audience that the race is leading into the Rocky Mountains, Mr. Gus decides to take a short cut into a very rocky path, Pizza Steve asks Uncle Grandpa if he's ready to call it quits but Uncle Grandpa says that's the best massage he has ever had and this displeases the two.

The last three racers are headed for a cactus patch and this makes Pizza Steve all excited for Mr. Gus to drive through the cactus patch, Uncle Grandpa asks the guys if they can go around the cactus patch and Pizza Steve says they can't and it's the shortest way. Evil Wizard decides to go the long way around the cactus patch.

The manager gives the trophy to Mr. Gus and compliments them on the front passenger tire, the guys hate to admit it too that Uncle Grandpa does make a pretty good tire. Pizza Steve states that it won't be the same with him going on adventures all the time but if this is what he wants to do then they can't stop him. Uncle Grandpa is glad that they respect his decision and now he wants to take a look at the trophy he always wanted, as Uncle Grandpa tries to roll to see the trophy, some gum sticks to his side and thinks it's gross especially when he finds out it's sugar free. Uncle Grandpa gets up and turns back to normal and he says that he's through being a tire, and he grabs the trophy and puts it in the vacant tire space and he says that the RV is ready to roll and that he's ready to be just Uncle Grandpa. The guys are happy that Uncle Grandpa is back to his normal self, Pizza Steve asks Uncle Grandpa if wants to make like a tire and race out of there, he wants to eat the frozen pizza he has in the fridge.

They all race inside the RV and when Uncle Grandpa closes the door to the RV it falls off, Mr. Gus is disappointed and Uncle Grandpa said he'll fix it.
