Cartoon Summary:


Speed and Trixie drive to the shipyard where the Masked Racer's car is being unloaded for the upcoming Trans Country Race. Trixie hints to Speed that he should enter the race. He hesitantly agrees.

At the Racer homestead, while watching TV, Pops learns that Speed has entered the race. He blows a gasket and reminisces about the loss of his oldest son, Rex, who joined a race without his permission. At the brink of victory, Rex crashed the car Pops had built. Although Rex was uninjured, Pops refused to let him drive again, citing Rex's lack of experience. Consequently, Rex vowed never to return home.

Meanwhile, the Alpha Team is holding a secret conference to plot a way to win the race. Mr. Wiley tells Mr. Fixer and Alpha Team driver Zoomer Slick to pull the dirty trick first.

Determined to beat the Masked Racer, Speed sneaks out in the middle of the night and goes to the track. Despite heavy rains he is not deterred. The Masked Racer warns him to stay out of the race. Speed answers that he wants to beat him and they race blindly into the night. Speed crashes when an unknown person cuts a rope, causing a cascade of logs to block the track. He tumbles out of his car, losing consciousness.
