Story: Speedy is too small to be on the NASCAR circuit, so instead he drives, as his license plate will tell you, a GNOME CAR. Like dog-Leg, he knows it's important to wear a hard hat and acorn ear muffs for noise protection. Speedy is holding a lifesaver for luck as he negotiates this sharp turn, by his expression says that he's not going to make it around the dog-leg. His coin confirms that if hr doesn't make the curve, there will be "no cash value" at the end of the race for Speedy. The prune pit is in honor of the hard-working pit crew that will rescue Speedy from his predicament.
