Several Drivers including Brian O'Conner and Dominic Toretto are hired to run heroin across the border while using tunnels to avoid detection. Fenix takes the role of leading the cars across the U.S-Mexico Border. Arturo Braga soon escapes to Mexico. Brian and Dominic then recapture Braga and attempt to run back to the U.S. Fenix chases Brian and Dominic while on the run back to the U.S side of the border. Fenix then T-bones Brian's Subaru and confronts him. The car's front bumper gets damaged. After Dominic rescues Brian and kills Fenix, they go to court where Dom is sentenced to 25 years to Life in Lompoc Prison.
