0 laps completed LOL. That's always gotta suck in ANY race if you get knocked out of the race in the opening laps. Especially if it's a really big race like the Indy 500. Imagine all that hard work and preparation for months and months to get ready for the race and hope for victory, and you only get 10 or less laps out of it before you get wrecked or break. I'd be pretty frustrated, too. (Though in years past when equipment was a lot more fickle and unstable races like the Indy 500 would often see half the field or more sitting on the sidelines by the halfway mark!)

Granted, Reg and Sasha didn't prepare for that long but still. Nobody wants to be the first one out of a race or the last place finisher. But somebody HAS to!

It wouldn't be as many as 500 laps XD. But yeah someone's got to come last.

Indy 500 is only 200 laps actually, it's 500 miles. Which would make it awkward if the States ever decided to switch to the metric system. What do you call it then to be accurate? The Indy 805 doesn't sound QUITE as catchy :D

I don't think the bangers used in chain races could last 500 miles XD

A nearby cart labeled Moe's opens up near them. ^^

Sasha: Anything except from Moe's.

*Moe changes the sign from Moe's to Joe's and puts on a fake mustanche*

Well, she may not have realized the British way of driving, but Sasha's definitely caught on to the British way of coping with failure: "If at first you don't succeed - have a drink!"

What about cars in races that break down on the starting grid or don't even take the green flag? XD
