- "Girl still got that swing, homie."
- ―Hector to Dominic Toretto
Hector organizes and attends the original race in which Dominic and Brian participated, which was later interrupted by the police. Brian begins investigating Hector and Tran's activities and is convinced that Hector or Tran are behind the hijackings. He believes his suspicions are founded when he discovers an unusual purchase made by Hector at Racers' Edge (the parts shop where Brian works). Hector later throws a party at El Gato Negro but his whereabouts after this party are unknown.
After returning to Los Angeles with a clean record Dominic takes Letty to Race Wars hoping to jog her memory. After Letty races and wins, she is crowded by people chanting which causes her to feel uncomfortable and experience a surge of faded memories. When Hector grabs her arm, she turns around and punches him, proceeding to drive away right after. Dom and Hector share a few words about Letty and how Hector is glad to have him back. Hector is not seen again after this.
