[rock music]

(male #1)

Americans love to race.

Seems once we make something go

you wanna make it go faster.

And once it goes faster

well, let's see

who can make it go the fastest.

In drag racing,

it's all about acceleration.

In drift,

it's all about style points.

In NASCAR, well,

it's a lotta left turns.

But in our world..

...it's all about dirt.

[engine revving]


'We're in Round 1 of Lucas Oil

Off Road Racing Series.'

'Trent Lerion's troubles

continue heading to lap 10.'

He's gettin' squeezed out there.

You're gettin' squeezed

out there, man.

Tell me something I don't know.

I'm covered in sludge out here.

He's running out of mud shields.

Well, he wouldn't be so dirty

if he ever had the lead.


'Behind the leaders,

Trent Lerion

'is making his move

on Greg Adler.'

'Battlin' it out for the last

spot on the podium.'

He's gotta make

a move on Turn 2.

- Trent, you gotta--

- Yeah, I got this.


'Lerion's Number 7 Rockstar car

is all over Adler.'

'Now, he goes to make a move,

but Adler shuts him down again''

'That has to frustrate Lerion.'

'He just can't find

an opening out there.'

He's too close.


'No! Oh, no!'

'He lands on Adler's bumper,

slams into the K-rail.'


'That's gonna do some damage.'


Tell me somethin'.

Status, brother.

Uh, engine's sputtering.

Tire's flat and I'm pretty sure

the rear dip is broke.

Dip's gone.

That's it, we're done.

Damn it!


'Well, that looks like'

'the end of the day

for Trent Lerion'

'and his Number 7

Rockstar team.'

[dramatic music]

[sirens blaring]

- Suspect in sight.

- 'Heads up, Dez.'

(female #1)

'More po-po coming

from Alameda.'

Alright, flip around,

300 yards on your left.

The alley will give you

some breathing room.

[tires screeching]

- Damn it, I can't see a thing.

- Quick right.

Anymore five-O?

Looking. Nothing.


Go left on Viaduct Street.

Then it's open for a bit.

No, I'm good.

Can't touch this

- I'mma coast right in.

- No. Viaduct is safer.

- You need to listen to me.

- 'Ha. They off me.'

Alright, don't worry about it.

We good, man.


Can't touch this

My music hits me so hard

Makes me say oh my Lord

Thank you for blessin' me

With a mind to rhyme

and two hype feet

It feels good

(woman on radio)

'Unit 17, suspect spotted.'

'Headed east bound on Bronson.'

Oh, sh*t, Dez,

crews are closin' in fast!

Yo, get outta there!

I got him.

Where to?

Down Ellis Street.

Suspect in sight,

headed east on Bronson.

Mother Teresa, Mary,

Moses, Paul, John.

Where you going, man?

[siren blaring]

Oh, sh*t!


[siren blaring]

[breathing heavily]

[all laughing]

- Play it again?

- No more.

Everybody, back to work.

Come on.

Don't worry,

you all will get a GIF

with the best moments

in your inboxes.

Rewind it.

You wanna see the impact again?

I think you can hear Pearson

cry a little bit at the end.

I wanna see the driver.

You know this kid?

I do.

'He was part

of the Nexgeneracers program

a few years back for Out Rescue.

Wait, so you taught him

how to steal cars?

You want me to put

out a warrant?


[engine revving]


Didn't think

you were gonna make it.


15,000 miles on it.

Sells for 400 grand.

No police?

Clean as a new razor blade, yo.

'Cause you know what the boss

will do if you bring the heat.

Yeah, I know, Serge.

20K. Take it or leave it.

It books for almost 400.

You know anyone else that

can move wheels like this?

Come on, Serge,

don't do me like this, man.


It's always a pleasure, Junior.
