- TV's Speed Racer in his Mach 5.
- Michael Knight riding in KITT from TV's Knight Rider.

Trivia / Info:
- This segment is, so far, the longest in any episode of Robot Chicken, clocking in at 5:45.
- This segment continues all the way through the end credits, with Cannonball Run-style outtakes.
- All the outtakes were actual bad takes from hours of recording Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise. (from the DVD Commentary)
- Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise reprise their roles as J.J. McClure and Victor Prinzim, respectively, from Cannonball Run.
- Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise both contributed their voices to All Dogs go to Heaven.
- The Batmobile was a vintage toy that they destroyed for this segment. (from the DVD Commentary)
- The close-up of the taco during the close-up montage as the race begins was taken from W. Loves Tacos.
Goofs / Nitpicks:
- During the Batmobile's second roll, Batman disappears. (Perhaps Batman saw the Batsignal?)
- The Blue Koopa Shell is without spikes in this skit. In every game the Blue Koopa Shell has been in for the Mario Kart series, it has spikes on it.
- Furthermore, in the Super Mario Kart Super Nintendo game the shell that has no spikes is colored green.
- Various continuity errors regarding the participants of the race, Mario was never seen at the starting line yet appears mid-way through the race, Wario and the Ecto-1 are seen taking off from the starting line but are never seen either crashing or finishing the race.
- When Matt Trakker is decapitated, his head is more detailed.
- When J.J. McClure and Victor Prinzim are speaking with Dominic Toretto at the beginning, if you look closely, their mouths don't move.
