There were two crowd favorite happenings in the PowerWheels races.
One was where a driver hit the tire wall at full speed.

The other was Tom's dramatic Pink Trike FAIL!

In the drag race, it was simply bracketed. Two cars went up against each other, and the winner made it to the next round. We had trouble with Big Jake, so David ended up having to instead drive the STOCK PowerWheels Jeep - the slowest vehicle there, period.

Tom's Pink Trike proved to be the fastest on the qualifying round, so when one of the drag races was going to be the Pink Trike vs the Jeep subbing in for Big Jake, everyone knew who would win, and who would be blown away.

That's when the big surprise happened. See the video for the dramatic drag race.
