Back at the station Stacey makes fun of Romano for crashing the car and says she can beat him in a race. A police copter finds the getaway vehicle abandoned. Hooker pulls it apart and finds some special parts on the car. He goes to see his old friend Dan Danko up in the hills. Hooker shows him a Stubon torsion bar and a custom sway bar. Dan tells him only his business handles the Stubon torsion bar. They go to see who bought one recently. At the shop the detectives arrest Dan for the crimes.

Hooker goes to see the girl thrown out of the car. She tells him the guy wore a blue signet ring and the girl had a southern accent. Hooker goes back and tells Dan the info and he comes up with the names Jeff, Pauly & Tess. Hooker races over to find them. Tess stays behind on another attempted robbery and tells Hooker about it. They go to stop them. Hooker shoots Pauly and takes off after Jeff as Ramano helps a hostage. Hooker takes the chase to the hills and Jeff ends up flying off the edge of the hill. The next day Dan thanks Hooker. Stacey and Ramano end up racing on a kid's track as the episode ends. Very good episode with the first appearance of James Darren, though he is playing a different character.
