(wiki-special opens inside the Island Of Sodor Motor Speedway on race morning, with Timmy, Bubbles, Blossom, Rudy, Edd, Snap, Sandy, Ed, and Bart talking to Thomas, Percy, Gordon, Henry, Edward, James, Toby, Duck, and Duncan)
Timmy (after taking a bite of his buttered THOMAS' English muffin): Man, these are the BEST English muffins in all existence! THOMAS' English muffins hit the spot!
Percy: I didn't know Thomas could make crumpets, Timmy.
Timmy: He doesn't, Percy. THOMAS' is a BRAND of crumpets, or as we call them in the U.S, English muffins. *takes a bite of his buttered English muffin*
Gordon (rudely): That's right. Don't be ridiculous, little Percy! It's impossible for us engines to make food! We only deliver the ingredients for the chefs to prepare them!
Thomas: And you're being bossy, Gordon. Besides, we should all feel thrilled that we finally have a NASCAR race on the Island Of Sodor.
Edd: Thomas is right, It isn't often our friends visit you engines ever since they, as well as Lisa and myself, became NASCAR drivers.
Ed: Like hospitals?
Edd (annoyed): *unenthusiastically stares at Ed while pausing shortly* Puh-lease!
Toby: What's important is that you should all stand up on your own tires to Team REXCOR.
Blossom: Toby has an exact point. Garner Rexton promises that if anyone from his team wins this race, he'll buy the Island of Sodor using the race's pay money (in British pounds) and scrap the steam engines! He calls his plans, "The Island of REXCOR".
Sandy: Dead-gummit! The nerve of that Rexton! He ain't takin' over this fine railway!
Blossom: Not if any of us from Team FASTEX can help it!
Henry: Indeed, Blossom, and us engines will be watching all of you race from the right side of the start/finish line before the grandstands.
Percy: But it's a finish line!
Thomas: No Percy. The reason why it's called a start/finish line is because they run laps in this race, meaning that they start from the line and go around 75 times.
Percy: 75 times?! Wow, that must be long.
Snap (rudely): Aw, c'mon Choocho! We traveled hundreds of laps at the other racetracks! Why did they have to make this race 75 laps long today?!
Edd: *loud gasp* I am most astounded by you, Snap! First of all, sorry for Snap's belligerence, Percy and second, the reason why we must run 75 laps today is because this racing facility is about 4-miles long in length and that it has 14 turns. Usually on ovals, we'd run hundreds of laps but on long road courses like this, NASCAR limits the lap distance so that the drivers don't end up with major fatigue from being on the track too long.
James: Double-D's right, that wouldn't be fair to the drivers racing hundreds of laps on a huge 14-turn road course! That's like spending lots of hours pulling a stupid, long slow-goods train. YEECH!
Bubbles: I know. I always get so hot. But as long as I have the air conditioning in my car, I can keep on driving!
Percy: Like an engine to a water tank.
Bubbles: Yeah! Just like that!
Percy: You seem sweet, Bubbles.
Timmy: Yeah, Percton, and that's why she's my beautiful wife. *dips Bubbles, kisses her on the lips, and dips Bubbles back up with Bubbles blushing*
Duncan (to himself): Bah! This mushy stuff disgusts me.
Sandy: Ah, Pershal. You're one sweet engine yourself! *kisses Percy*
Percy (blushing): Oh, Sandy. By the way, Pershal sounds much less of a smaller engine name than my own. It makes me feel like one of the bigger engines.
Sandy: You really like my cute nickname for ya huh, Pershal?
Percy: Oh, yes.
Ed: Like apple-cations?
Sandy: *annoyed groan* First off all, birdbrain, I was talking to Percy and 2nd, can you be stupid somewhere else?
Ed: Have not a clue what you just said, Sandy.
Sandy: Anyway, despite Ed's stupid question, I really think I'd be headin' back here during the off-season to see ya, Percy.
Bart (rudely): Guess Sandy has a "boyfriend" on wheels.
Sandy: Shaddup Bart, and by the way, Principal Skinner will be working for MRN Radio today since Jack Arute couldn't make it today. He's commentating from "The Sodor Kink"(in reference to Turn 9).
Bart: *groan* Why does stupid Skinner have to work for MRN Radio?!
Rudy: That's because Principal Skinner had a 2nd job doing radio shows after school, and that NASCAR is his favorite sport.
Bart (to himself): *groans* That stupid stinky gator commentating a fu--*bleep*--ing race. (referring to Principal Skinner). *scene cuts to "NASCAR Raceday: Served By The Krusty Krab")
("Rule Britannia" plays with an overview of the Island Of Sodor Raceway and the British NASCAR fans waving British flags, cheering/roaring, and blaring air-horns)
Bob Jenkins (ESPN): We're here live from the merry ole United Kingdom! And this British island is known the Island Of Sodor! This famous British island is filled with talking trains and road vehicles, and a lot of tourists. And now the Island Of Sodor has more tourists than ever! Why, because the NASCAR Winston Cup Series is in town for Race 6 of the NASCAR "Chase For The Cup" Playoff Series, which is an Eliminator Round! *"Rule Britannia" fades into silence, along with the scene fading to the ESPN Broadcast Booth* (in unison to the playoff crowd cheering/roaring and blaring air-horns in the background) Hello everyone, I'm Bob Jenkins alongside former NASCAR Champion and race analyst, Benny Parsons. Not only this is the second to last race of the season outside of the U.S (foreshadowing the "2000 Fairy World 500 Fantasy Edition" wiki), but this is a CRUCIAL race for some of our playoff contenders in this Team Championship.
Benny Parsons (ESPN / in unison to the playoff crowd cheering/roaring and blaring air-horns in the background): Indeed, Bob. This race IS crucial for some of these playoff contenders. Why? Cause this is the 2nd Eliminator Round. Drivers like Timmy Turner, Penny Sanchez, Mac Kazoo, Remy, Buxaplenty, and many other drivers below the cut-off to Round 3 in Citiesville next week (foreshadowing the "2000 Citiesville 500 Fantasy Edition" wiki), NEED to watch their backs if they want to advance to the next round. Remember, 8 contenders advance and 4 contenders go home after this race (meaning that 4 drivers are eliminated from playoff contention).
Bob Jenkins (ESPN / in unison to the playoff crowd cheering/roaring and blaring air-horns in the background): After losing to Denzel Crocker last week in Wilson Way (in reference to the "2000 FOSTERS 500 Fantasy Edition" wiki), Timmy Turner looks to get out of the danger-zone by hopefully grabbing a win here inside the Island Of Sodor Raceway.
Benny Parsons (ESPN / in unison to the playoff crowd cheering/roaring and blaring air-horns in the background): You're right, Bob. Timmy Turner MUST win in order to advance to Round 3. Because after getting involved in the "Big One" back in Bikini Bottom (in reference to the "2000 Krusty Krab 500 Fantasy Edition" wiki), and a 2nd place finish to Denzel Crocker last week in Wilson Way, Timmy was dropped down to the danger-zone in the playoff point standings, and in danger of facing elimination. Those are the reasons why Timmy Turner MUST taste sweet victory in this race in order to move on in the playoff series.
Bob Jenkins ESPN / in unison to the playoff crowd cheering/roaring and blaring air-horns in the background): Will Timmy Turner advance to next round along with the others? We will find out after 75 laps of racing here in the Island Of Sodor. Rain is in the forcast, but we all have nothing to worry about because since this a road course, we will be able to race in the rain with the cars using special rain tires and windshield wipers should the skies open up later in the race.
Benny Parsons (ESPN / in unison to the playoff crowd cheering/roaring, and blaring their air-horns in the background): You're right, Bob. Unlike ovals when NASCAR forbids us from racing in the rain, road courses like this are PERFECT for racing in this type of weather. Why? Because rain tires on ovals can wear quickly than they would on a road course to only left turns easily wearing out the wet rubber. Jimmy Neutron said in his pre-race interview before we went on the air that he will introduce a new invulnerable rain tire specially designed for ovals that NASCAR will approve and will be used next year, depending if Team Fastex wins the Team Championship this year.
Bob Jenkins (ESPN / in unison to the playoff crowd cheering/roaring, and blaring their air-horns in the background): We'll see how these drivers can handle the wet conditions later on in the event. Under an overcast but rain-threatening sky here in the Island Of Sodor, the drivers, the fans, and WE'RE all ready for the starting of the engines here in Race 6 of the 2000 "Chase For The Cup" Playoff Series! Let's go trackside for the command!
British P.A Announcer: And now for the most famous words in motorsports *playoff crowd suddenly cheers/roars loudly and blares their air-horns in unison*, please welcome your grand marshal for today's inaugural running of the THOMAS' English Muffins 300, the Island Of Sodor's own, Sir Topham Hatt! *playoff crowd cheers/roars loudly and blares their air-horns in unison*

Duck (with the cars' engines rumbling in unison): Beg pardon, Gordon, but last time you went half that many miles, you lost your dome! (in reference to the Thomas story "Gordon & The Famous Visitor")
Gordon (with the cars' engines rumbling in unison): PAH! Who cares?!
Percy (with the cars' engines rumbling in unison / confused): (in unison to Bart revving his engine twice) What's that weird sound the cars are making?!
Thomas (with the cars' engines rumbling in unison): The cars are revving their motors, Percy! It's good for the cars to warm up!
Percy (with the cars' engines rumbling in unison): Well, that's something I learned that's new!
Edward (with the cars' engines rumbling in unison): (in unison to Mac revving his engine multiple times) And a car needs gas like an engine needs coal and water!
Gordon (with the cars' engines rumbling in unison): Who cares, little Edward?! Fuel is fuel! HMPH! *scene cuts to the ESPN Broadcast Booth*
Bob Jenkins (ESPN): The 43 cars have roared to life here in the Island Of Sodor, *scene cuts to the track* And we're ready to get Race 6 of the "Chase For The Cup" Playoff Series underway! The green flies next on ESPN! *scene cuts to Timmy's cockpit*
Bob Jenkins (ESPN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering/roaring playoff crowd with their air-horns blaring): The field comes off Turn #14 down this long frontstretch, waiting for the pace-car to pull into the pits to begin Race 6 of the 2000 "Chase For The Cup" Playoff Series, *playoff crowd cheers/roars louder as the pace-car pulls into the pits* and now the pace-car does so! *scene cuts to the engines by the start/finish line*
Henry (in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering/roaring crowd with their air-horns blaring in the background): The race is about to start!!!
Thomas (in unison to Henry and the playoff crowd): Here we go, Percy!!!! *scene cuts back to the track*
Bob Jenkins (ESPN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering/roaring playoff crowd with their air-horns blaring): Pole-sitter, Penny Sanchez will lead the field down to the line *cars accelerate to take the green flag waved by Burnett Stone, in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering/roaring playoff crowd with their air-horns blaring* as Sodor hero, Burnett Stone waves the green flag! The THOMAS' English Muffins 300 is underway! Glad you're with us on ESPN!
Joe Moore (MRN Radio): Green flag is in the air and we're underway on the Island Of Sodor! 2-by-2, they reach top speed as they now head to Turn #1 on this new road-course!
Dan Hubbard (MRN Radio): So far, nobody has the advantage between Penny Sanchez and Timmy Turner! Turner will try to out-brake Sanchez into the right-hand Turn #1, and he does so! Timmy Turner takes the lead here in Sodor! It'll be Penny Sanchez in that 2nd spot! They're side-by-side for 3rd as they head to Turn #2!
Steve Post (MRN Radio): Timmy Turner sets the pace into Turn #3! He brakes into that right-hand turn! Right in his tire-tracks is Penny Sanchez! In the 3rd spot is Ed Monobrow! Trixie Tang runs in the 4th spot! Denzel Crocker runs in the 5th spot! They fan out now, and they race single file down the sweep!
Mike Bagley (MRN Radio): They cross underneath the DUNLOP bridge now, getting ready for the first plunge into Turn #5! Timmy Turner now will dive down into the corner with Penny Sanchez hot-to-trot right there! Everybody's downshifting to 2nd gear! Here comes Turner, he's through cleanly! The first 5, first 10 cars, now everybody's through cleanly as they climb the hill in Turn #6!
Dillon Welch (MRN Radio): It remains the same order at the top of the hill! Timmy Turner, Penny Sanchez, Ed Monobrow, now being pressured by Trixie Tang in the #25 car! In the battle for 3rd, Monobrow's looking to the inside of Sanchez and he'll make contact into Turn #7!
Woody Cain (MRN Radio): They're STILL side-by-side as they come off of Turn #7! Timmy Turner opens up a 5 car-length lead now! Turner goes hard on the brakes as he makes the left-hander into Turn #8! Penny Sanchez is "hot on her heels", but Trixie Tang's closing in and trying to make a move on Ed Monobrow as they head toward the carousel!
David Hyatt (MRN Radio): That will be the battle for the 3rd spot as Trixie Tang now falls back in line single-file, and pins that car down to the bottom of the racetrack! They'll stretch it back out now with Timmy Turner into the "Sodor Kink"! *scene cuts to Timmy Turner's cockpit*
(in the "Sodor Kink")
Timmy (in 1st): Man, how long IS this track?! Ah, well. I like a nice long run. Especially when I'm in the lead! *scene cuts to the ESPN Broadcast Booth*
Bob Jenkins (ESPN): We now have the first Servicemaster Clean caution flag *scene cuts to the track with an overview of Patrick Star's #75 Redcell Ford stuck in the gravel trap in Turn #5* due to Patrick Star's spin into the gravel trap in Turn #5 moments ago. (in unison, Patrick Star stupidly quotes "Does somebody know if the gravel traps are made out of ice cream?") Safety vehicles are at the scene, now pulling the #75 car out of that gravel trap. But the sad thing is for Patrick, he has a lot of making up to do in this race.
Bob Jenkins (ESPN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering/roaring crowd cheering for Timmy as he crossed the start/finish line to win the race): Here come the cars down to the finish line, Timmy Turner will win the THOMAS' English Muffins 300 here on The Island Of Sodor! (in unison, Timmy happily cries out, "YEAH!!!! WHOOOO!!!! MOVIN' ON, BABY!!!! TAKE THAT, REXCOR!!!! GO HOME, REMY!!!!", and Remy angrily cries like a baby and pounds the steering wheel like a baby) Timmy advances in the playoffs! And Remy Buxaplenty is eliminated from playoff contention! Now Denzel Crocker is the only REXCOR driver left in the playoffs!
Benny Parsons (ESPN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering/roaring crowd as Timmy won the race): Team Fastex IS BACK, Bob! After 2 devastating losses in Amity Park and Wilson Way, Team Fastex FINALLY came through and grabbed that MUST WIN for the team. That MIGHT HAVE been the moment that won Team Fastex the Team Championship. We shall find out next month in Atlanta (foreshadowing the "2000 NAPA 500 Fantasy Edition" wiki)!
