Porsche-ridin'! Clark has driven home in Lex's silver ride. Pete is waiting there for him. Clark's not happy about it. "Here's your $20,000," Clark tells Pete. Pete says that the car's worth a lot more than that. He asks if Lex gave it to Clark. "Not exactly," says Clark. Clark says he'll give the car back after Pete challenges Squinty of the Eyes to a race he can't refuse. To a...what? This isn't a great plan, Clark. Seriously. Clark says that if Squinty wins the race, he'll keep the Porsche. If Pete wins, he won't owe any money. Great plan, except...doesn't Lex bear the brunt of this awful scheme if it backfires? Pete says that as fast the car moves, it can't stand a chance against Squinty's car. Clark says that the Porsche is the prize; Pete'll drive the car he's always driven. The one that doesn't belong to him? Sure, Squinty will go for that. Pete says that Squinty Eyes has never lost a race. Clark says he'll use his heat vision to fry Squinty's engine. He's going to cheat? Why, that rascal! Pete: "A last-minute tune-up, Clark, you're awesome!" Clark spins on Pete and rails at him for enjoying this. No one is allowed to have fun in this episode. Especially not me. Clark is mad that he had to steal, lie, and now cheat for Pete. I thought that, in a regular Clark week, that was just called "Wednesday." "Let's get this done," Clark says bitterly.
Garage barn. Squinty is in the Porsche convertible. Christina Aguilera is standing around looking bored. Or drugged-up. Squinty seems to have agreed to the deal with Clark and Pete. He says that Pete has "quite a pair of lug nuts" to take him on. Indeed. Pete has got his Enyce jacket back on. It still looks ridiculous on him. Squinty tells his "baby" to take the Porsche down to the starting line. He kisses her in a familiar way. Pete's jealous that the trophy girl was never his. Pete asks how he knows the girl isn't going to drive off with the car. Pete takes the keys to drive the car down there himself. He asks Clark to keep an eye on the Mustang. That's the...er...red one, right? Squinty smiles and squints as Pete shoots out of the barn. Clark uses his crutch-in-ear-field superhearing to listen to Squinty talk to one of his henchmen about the race. It's a mighty animated ear! They're worried Pete might really win. They're going to rig the car so that it blows up at 100 mph. And Squinty is still calling Pete "The Boss," which is strange given that they think he's a pansy. Clark marches off to tell those bad guys off: "The race is off! You rigged his car." Squinty asks who made Clark racing commissioner. A thug picks up a Kryptonite fuel tank and holds it up. Clark starts to get sick. Dude whacks Clark in the back of the head with the tank. Clark goes down. Hard. I swear I've seen that tank-wielding thug on this show before. Squinty tells them to put Clark in the trunk.
