Speed Racer was born to drive racecars! His natural talent and instinctual ease around the racetrack rapidly became a phenomenon. Speed wants nothing more than to be the best racecar driver in the world, following in his late brother’s (Rex Racer) footsteps. Speed’s brother Rex supposedly succumbed in an accident during “The Crucible,” a race that Speed definitely desires to win.
Speed has the full support of his father, Pops Racer, who designed the sleek Mach 5 that Speed is so passionate about driving. His sexy girlfriend, Trixie is very supportive of Speed’s desire to fulfill his racing dreams, and also his desire to make his deceased brother Rex proud of his accomplishments.
After turning down a lucrative offer from the corporate people at Royalton, Speed makes a terrible discovery, and realizes that Royalton has been fixing races for financial gain and to increase their profits. Royalton wants to ensure that Speed doesn’t win “The Crucible.” Speed has joined forces with his ex-rival Racer X to rescue his family business, and hopefully the sport of racing, too!
