  • When activating the Ninja Fusion Zord, Levi didn't use the Ninja Fusion Star, but rather his Storm Star.
  • When Cosmo explains to Speedwing and Wolvermean that Sarah took the Speed Star, his voice is amplified as if he's speaking on stage or into his microphone, but he's not.
  • Despite the Speed Star getting stuck to Speedwing's back, the Rangers somehow surpassed him on foot while he was running at max speed. This is due to Sentai related footage where the Ninnigers had spent thier time unmorphed training to be as fast as Hayabusa was.
  • Despite fighting Speedwing with the Ninja Fusion Zord, the Ninja Steel Megazord makes a brief appearance during the fight immediately before Sarah says "let's pluck this chicken." 
  • When Brody changes into his Lion Fire Mode, the rest of the Rangers join him in his Lion Fire catchphrase.
  • When Cosmo gigantifies Speedwing, the gigantify laser is instead replaced with the gas sent down to release Skullgators.
  • Victor and Monty came back from Africa without an explanation.
  • When the Rangers finished off Speedwing, no slashing sound was heard which makes the scene awkward.


  • The episode title is named after a car racing video game with a same name.
  • This is the first time the Gold Ranger utilizes the Ninja Super Steel Blaster. Aside from Calvin, he is the one who uses it the most often although Calvin does use it more times than he does.
  • First appearance of the new morphing theme which would last until "Doom Signal." The finale used the tune from when Brody activates Lion Fire Mode next episode and the Halloween and Christmas specials have the Rangers insta-morph instead of the usualy morphing sequence.
  • Although not completed, this episode marks the first time all 6 Ninja Steel Rangers do a roll call together, as well as a Steel Slash together which would occur again when they perform the Nexus Ninja Strike Steel Slash to kill Odius in the episode "Reaching the Nexus."
  • Speedwing is the first Galactic Ninja to be destroyed.
  • A remix of "Go Green Ranger" from Seasons 1 and 2 of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was featured at the summoning of the Zords, making this the 1st episode to play the song in any form since Green No More 24 years earlier.
