One Year Ago
“Ladies and Gentlemen! The racers have reached the final stretch!”
The roar of the crowd boomed for miles around, those viewing from home would hear an odd echo as the fan’s cheers came from both their television sets and from over the horizon. The stands, which stretched for miles around the track, shook and rattled from the sheer mass of bodies on them, nearly half the planet’s burgeoning population had come to view the race, and only the top one percent of the one percent were given the privilege of sitting along the final stretch.
“There! In the distance! I-It’s Ride En!” The announcer’s voice shook the stands as every able body in attendance craned their necks to catch a glimpse of the undisputed fastest being alive, the winner of ninety nine consecutive Ego Grand Prixs.
“Ride has entered the final hundred mile stretch ladies and gentlemen! But… Where is team Blue Streak! Could they have been eliminated? Does this mean the one hundredth Ego Cup, will go to Ride En!?”
“I shall inscribe the names of Blue Streak into my form! Those who stood in my path, who pushed me to become faster, who shall form the foundation of the new world shall not be forgotten!”
The crowd grew silent as they watched the speck in the distance that was their undoing grow larger. The god who became man one hundred years ago to challenge man at it’s own game, that pushed man to become greater, stronger, smarter… Faster… The being known as Ride who declared that all the world must give themselves to obsession, to passion should no mortal stand against him as an equal in this one hundredth Ego Grand Prix, stormed forth unopposed towards the final finishline for both this race and humanity as it is known.
”Wait… C-Could it be Ladies and Gentlemen… T-There in the distance!”
"It’s team Blue Streak!"
“Alright guys! This is it! The final stretch, everything's been building to this!” Weelo griped the wheal of Petty tighter, his knuckles turning white as the patterns in the leather etched themselves into his palms. Every moment he had trained, every moment he spent on the track sense awakening had lead to this point. He knew deep down that he should hate the man in front of him, that he should despise what Ride had become, yet all he could feel was excitement. As the Richard Petty stormed down the track, Weelo felt his blood ignite.
“We’re right behind you Weelo!” Kylo felt every muscle in his body scream out at him, his legs begged him to stop, his chest felt as if it would explode, his mind felt blank. Yet he continued to run, to chase Weelo, as he always had, and always would. Thus the Earnheart continued to run, to charge ahead for all mankind.
“We’ll only have one shot at this, we need to capitalize…” Despite her lack of tone or expression, both Weelo and Kylo knew that Momo felt exactly what they were feeling. An intense drive, and intense need for victory. Never before had Momo felt so strongly about anything, Only her work could bring such powerful feelings to her, yet here on the racetrack she felt more alive then she had ever in the lab. It was with this new passion that the Danica continued to push on ahead, for a better tomorrow.
“Alright! Let's do it! Blue Streak Formation!”
At his call the three moved in tandem and aligned. Momo took point, breaking the wind before them by spinning the Danica, drilling through the air and creating a vortex behind. There Weelo positioned himself to ride the vortex and build speed, the Petty glowing an ethereal blue. Finally Kylo took position behind Weelo, using the Earnheart to drive the others forward, pushing them onward with his strength. The power, speed, and fluid nature of Blue Streak Formation took form and blurred the team into a single body, a single being of pure speed.
The crowed erupted into a deafening cheer as Team Blue Streak rocketed towards Ride, quickly closing the gap and overshooting the 99 time champion. Ride watched in aw as the Blue Streak fell away, The Earnheart disengaged from convoy and quickly fell back allowing for Weelo to fire the Petty's Turbocharge thrusters. The Danica quickly pulled tot the side, allowing the The Petty to continue to take advantage and ride the vortex it had created. While Ride was able to quickly overtake both Momo and Kylo, he could only gaze at the back of Weelo.
He had not gazed at someone's back in over one hundred years.
“I see... this is the power you have gained Weelo Sitee. The bonds you have forged give you this unimaginable speed.”

"Yet I refuse to be defeated so easily!"
The world erupted into a feverish cheer as Ride was encased in a crackling azure energy, the power radiating off his form blinded those in the stands and cast shadows upon the moon. Long forgotten was the race to determine mankind's fate, long forgotten was the man turned god who threatened their very way of life. All that remained were two man, vying for first pace. With this new speed Ride quickly caught up to and matched Weelo's pace. The two fraught for first by nano-meters as the world watched the climax of the greatest race in all of recorded history.
"Weelo... Had this been another time. Another place, perhaps we could have raced together..."
“It's never to late Ride... As long as you haven't crossed that final finish line there's always time... So I have an offer for you...”
"Join Team Blue Streak!"
"...heh...hehehe..." --- -- -
"Very well Weelo Sitee, I accepct your pasison, your determination! If you defeat me in this race I, Ride En will join Blue Streak! Now! Show me the speed and power of the human race!"
The world grew silent, all that existed in all the universe was here, Ride and Weelo as they jockeyed for first place... Mere feet between them and history. Between the human race's freedom and it's enslavement to it's own obsessions.
And Weelo smiled, for he knew he had won.
The Petty's blue glow turned a shining wight.
