The Pink Slip Race was a relay race between Brian O'Conner and Roman Pearce against Carter Verone's other drivers, Darden and Korpi.

Background[]

Brian O'Conner and Roman Pearce, while reporting their mission to Bilkins at HQ, were chastised by Markham as the latter shot at him believing that they were "running", but in reality, they were on an undercover mission with Carter Verone to retrieve a package from his parked Ferrari 360 Spider.

After informing Bilkins about Verone's plan to give them a window to retrieve money before the local cops arrive, Brian and Roman, realizing that both of they're cars are tagged with tracking devices, decide to set up a pink slip race between Darden and Korpi's muscle cars to continue their mission undetected. Organized by Tej Parker, he set up the race in a tag team style match; the first wave will drive off, turn around a barrel and come back. The second wave of racers must wait til their partner crosses the finish line. The first team who goes down and back wins the race, whereas the losers must surrender their cars.

The Race[]

The first wave of racers started between Roman Pearce and Darden. As Suki started off the race, they drove off, with Darden in the lead. Brian and Korpi waited as the race started. Darden remained in a wide lead as Roman trailed. Darden then proceeded to turn around the barrel with Roman continuing to do the same as he continued remaining second. As Darden continued leading, Roman proceeded to turn on his NOS to overtake him. However, Darden proceeded to hit a Florida Fresh Seafood sign to prevent Roman from overtaking him. As Roman turned and hit the sign as well, he began to lose control of his car as he slid into a dirt patch but was able to regain control. As Brian waited, Darden proceeded to win the first round, allowing Korpi to have an early lead as he continued to wait for Roman to pass.

Brian was able to race off as Roman crossed the finish line much to his disappointment. Korpi proceeded to turn around the barrel as Brian remained in second. Brian and Korpi then faced each other in a game of chicken. As the two cars nearly crashed into each other, Darden began losing control of his car and went onto a grass paddy as Brian proceeded to turn around the barrel. Brian proceeded to use his NOS as Korpi continued leading. Brian's Lancer Evolution then went side by side with Korpi's Yenko Camaro in a close race. Despite Korpi having a slight lead, Brian was able to overtake Korpi at the last second allowing him to win the race.
