  • First appearance of Racer X

    This is the first appearance of Racer X, the mysterious driver who is more than a driver. As we see Speed and his girlfriend Trixie taking a drive. Father Pops is determined not to let Speed drive at all. For the fear of losing him despite nearly winning the first race in the first episode. Speed, in order to prove himself more, tries to win and practice against Racer X on a very stormy night. Despite negative press on Racer X, really he is a good man it seems. The way he treated Sprittle, the youngest brother. Shows that this will be a friendly rivalry. As Rex cares about Speed!
