Gumball.

They're coming in now.

All of them.

I'm gonna stay here on the stakeout.

It's 9:
05.

I'll check in again at 10.

Graves.

In through that way.

Right through that door

there's a banquet room.

Thank you.

- It's just a misunderstanding.

- That's what you call it.

I call it a lie.

- It's after 9:
30. That's the deadline.

- Shall we close it up, Mr. Bannon?

Yeah. Put Fred on the door.

I want that room sealed.

Ladies, gentlemen...

...you have been selected because

you have the necessary skills.

You are here because you have

the determination to succeed.

Now, it won't be as easy as last year.

There are some who will use

any means to try and stop us.

Some of you won't make it.

For those of you who do...

...there will be no glory, no headlines.

But...

...just a few magic hours

flat-out against the red line...

...with no catalytic converter...

...and no 55-mile-an-hour speed limit.

Ladies and gentlemen...

...the Gumball Rally has begun.

For those of you who've never

done this before...

...I think I better go over the rules.

The first thing to remember

is that there are no rules.

The first vehicle to reach the parking lot

at the Queen Mary in Long Beach...

...is the winner, the unofficial winner.

Because this is an unofficial race.

And so it follows that none of us

are really in this race.

We don't want any civilian involvement.

No accidents, please.

Remember, it's 2900 miles.

That, 34 hours and 11 minutes,

is the record.

Set last year by our dear friend

Mr. Bannon.

Now I know we all ought

to get some rest tonight.

But may I?

I'd like to propose a toast.

To internal combustion...

...and wind in the face.

You know, I think Roscoe's got a grudge

against you, Smitty, from last year.

Hey, why do I always get blamed
