Cartoon Network Asia: Interviews with the Speed Five Billion race car drivers reveal what they believe is at stake in the quest for the Key-tana.
Inside Prime Empire, an announcer says that the next Speedway Five-Billion will start in three days and is the most stimulating race in history. Every contestant wants to win the Yellow Key-Tana, the prize of the race.
The announcer then focuses his attention on the contestants. Hyper-Sonic introduces himself first, saying he is full of spirit and is very eager to win. Next is Ritchie, who says he serves Atta the Ratta and that he wants to win the Key-Tana to please his kind. Anthony Brutinelli talks about his name coming from his real name, not his car. Racer Seven mentions her always wanting to be a racer and proving that she is good enough. The racers fight for the camera's focus, each stating their individual desires of what to do if they win the Key-Tana.
While continuing Racer Seven's interview, the announcer notices Jay on the side and speculates if he is a racer that came late. The camera focuses on Jay and the announcer asks what his ambition is after winning the Key-Tana. Jay tells him that the race has to be stopped and it is not what everyone thinks it is. However, Red Visors start shooting at him, so he runs. The short ends with the announcer telling his viewers to stay tuned for the race.
