Space Race, Part 2


Sonic has lost the race with Turbo. However, Turbo reveals that the loser's ship is to be destroyed by the rival ship. Sonic tells Amy to escape, but the pilot is down and she, nor Skorrg have any idea how to fly the ship. Fortunately, her experience with ships helps her learn quickly and she is soon able to fly away from the Vargz challengers. Skorrg's ship is unable to outfly the rivals for too long and the controls are eventually shot out.

Before the Vargz can fire the finishing shot, they summon Turbo back but Sonic also leaps into the tractor beam, appearing on the enemy's bridge. Sonic starts to tear through the crew but his over-confidence leads to him getting zapped. He is soon assisted by Turbo, giving Sonic enough time to recover and launch a Spin Attack on the last Vargz member. With both crews under hedgehog control, Sonic orders the Vargz to tow them back to where they picked them up. Back on solid ground, Sonic urges them to move on in case Dr. Robotnik is trailing them. Sure enough, Grimer has picked up sightings of them but Robotnik orders him not to pass on the information to Princess Kupacious. He has his own surprise for his "little blue friend".
