Episode Summary

Speed has passed out behind the wheel of the GRX. Eventually, the car comes to a half at the edge of an aqueduct. Spritle and Chim Chim drag Speed out of the racecar. One of Oriana's thugs gets in the GRX and drives away. At the Racer homestead Pops sets out to "cure" Speed of his delusions. Later at the racetrack, the final trials for the Oriental Grand Prix are about to begin. Oriana's thug squirts the formula at Louis Towcar so that he can "stand the speed of the GRX." Further, he warns the driver that if he drinks water while he is driving, "you'll get so scared, you'll lose control of the car and smash into smithereens. The race begins. Towcar tries to quench his insatiable thirst. A chemical reaction takes effect and Towcar passes out. Speed autojacks over the GRX, which blows up. Later, in her helicopter, Oriana asks Speed to drive the GRX in the upcoming race. Speed gets into the repaired GRX racecar. The thug gives him the formula. He takes off. Upon spotting Speed in the GRX, Trixie lands her helicopter in Speed's path. Pops rushes over to Speed. At home, Pops once again tries to deprogram his son. Dr. Skuller reports to Pops that his son has inhaled V gas. On race day, Speed is "scared and can't help it." Pops tells him to be a man. Curly, driving the GRX, vows to win. The race begins. Speed races ahead, Pops' advice ringing in his ears. Curly goes into the pit and runs for water. As he resumes the race, he becomes delusional. The GRX spins out of control, bursting into flames. Speed pulls into the lead and wins the race. We then learn that Curly was the son of the GRX's inventor.moreless
