The gang rides a Trailmon towards the Rose Morning Star, but they get dropped off at a town since there is a Trailmon race that day. The gang is told that each Trailmon has a rider, and when Zoe finds out that the prize is a cheeseburger, she eagerly volunteers. One Trailmon can't find his partner, so she asks to be his. However, ShadowWereGarurumon and Doggymon, the Trailmon's partners, show up. When other riders find out that ShadowWereGarurumon is participating, they quit. The gang takes advantage of this and takes their places. The race starts, but Neemon is asleep at the wheel, so his team is eliminated. A Raremon comes in front of JP's Trailmon and then climbs onto it. With his Trailmon disabled, JP's team is eliminated.
Takuya's Trailmon passes ShadowWereGarurumon's, and after crossing a bridge, Doggymon tosses a bomb! The bridge is destroyed, but Koji's Trailmon manages to jump it. However, Tommy and Zoe are forced to Spirit Evolve to save themselves. Tommy/Kumamon creates an ice bridge, allowing his Trailmon to pass, but Zoe/Kazemon's Trailmon falls into the ravine. She manages to save him just in time, but exhausted, she reverts back to human form. As Tommy/Kumamon's team continues, Zoe's is eliminated.
The race continues along narrow ledges, and ShadowWereGarurumon's Trailmon begins ramming Takuya's, causing Takuya to fall off the ledge! However, Tommy/Kumamon manages to save him, and he then Spirit Evolves. Takuya/Agunimon and ShadowWereGarurumon battle on top of the Trailmon, and Koji/Lobomon soon joins in. However, Doggymon eats through the brakes of Koji/Lobomon's Trailmon. Koji/Lobomon tries to stop his Trailmon, but the two fall over the ledge. Tommy/Kumamon attaches himself to his Trailmon and then catches Koji/Lobomon's Trailmon, but his own Trailmon slips over, causing them all to fall. Koji/Lobomon then Beast Spirit Evolves and luckily catches them just in time. Unfortunately, both of their teams are eliminated.
Takuya/Agunimon and ShadowWereGarurumon's Trailmon pass through a cave, and Doggymon tosses a bomb in front of Takuya/Agunimon's Trailmon, causing it to crash. Gasoline starts pouring onto the floor, and a flame-like digimon touches it. As ShadowWereGarurumon's Trailmon emerges from the cave and heads for the finish line, Takuya/Agunimon Beast Spirit Evolves. As flames erupt from within the cave, Takuya/BurningGreymon flies out with the Trailmon. After getting a boost from BurningGreymon's flames, the Trailmon shoots fire from its breath, causing ShadowWereGarurumon's to crash. Takuya wins the race, and his prize is a trip for seven to Hamburger Digimon Village...
