On a stretch of highway, patrolman Office Mayhew idles in his squad car, one eye on the radar and the other on the newspaper he's holding. The engine from an oncoming vehicle garners his attention as a bright yellow Camaro going 92 miles per hour whizzes by...Read the full recap
The Homestead Motorsports Speedway played an important role as the background for the episode. The cast and crew spent two days filming there. NASCAR and the Richard Petty Racing Experience provided the show the use of their team cars as background and the show's decorating department reproduced the set to look like working garages. Even the NASCAR officials were impressed!
The winding road where the police chase speed demon Chaz is in Markham Park, in Broward County, FL. The park is named after resident William Markham, a longtime property appraiser.
The scene with Ray and Jeff, after Ray was assaulted, was filmed at another popular recreational area, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. The park was named after a Chicago attorney, who in 1893 purchased 180 acres of land for a whopping $1 per acre. He then donated the land to the public. It was eventually obtained by the state of Florida and has been preserved as a park until this day.
The transporter where Jim Longworth confronts Georgia was actually a 53-foot trailer with expandable sides. The platforms that were created were used as a stage. The show's Production Designer, Hugh D.G. Moody, and the set decoration department, led by Key Jeffery Taylor, turned it into a working NASCAR trailer lounge and office for the scene.
The scene where Jim jumps into the race car is actually two different cuts blended together. The first is the background action, which was filmed using an actual race car provided by the Richard Petty Driving Experience. The car followed a specialty vehicle called a Russian Arm. Matt Passmore (Jim Longworth) and Taylor Hadley, who plays Trey, filmed the second part on a stage using a green screen. The two scenes were combined so that it looks as though the two actors are in a car driving together.
The bank robbery scene (seen as surveillance footage) was shot in an old, abandoned bank. The scene with the cars racing away from the robbery (also seen as surveillance footage) was shot using the same camera and on the same street where the bank was located. These scenes took about two hours to complete.
