(wiki-special opens inside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway outside Mac & Bloo's hauler with Mac, Bloo, Bart, Buttercup, Timmy, Bubbles, Edd, Lisa, and Ed eating breakfast)
Timmy: Well, this is it, guys! The Brickyard 400! Man, I ALWAYS wanted to win this race and drink the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's winning beverage, milk!
Mac: Yeah, especially wearing Indy's famous winner's wreath around your neck! Racing and winning at the Brickyard are mine and Bloo's DREAM!
Bloo: You said it, Mac! I need to get my hands on that milk (the winning beverage of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway)!
Timmy: But, Bloo you don't have hands.
Edd: You know, guys. This track was officially built in 1908, surfaced by crushed gravel covered by tar. Due to multiple fatal accidents and mishaps in the first few races, in 1909 Carl G. Fisher decided to repave the disintegrating Indianapolis Motor Speedway with 3.2 million bricks, giving the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's nickname, "The Brickyard". When cars first ran on the new surface, there was only one terrible accident... a broken leg. The track surface was now safe to race, and the first running of the worldwide-famous Indianapolis 500 took place on May 30th, 1911, won by Ray "The Bedouin" Harroun. Note, the bricks weren't fully-paved over until the 1960's, and marking the yard of bricks which today marks the start/finish line.
Buttercup: No wonder why the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is known as "The Brickyard"!
Lisa: I have something to tell you guys, TNN Sports and the IMS Radio Network are covering the race today due to this racing facility being the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I spoke with Paul Page (IMS commentator) this morning. He even gave you his warm regards, Bubbles.
Bubbles: He was super nice to me to wish me the best of luck!
Ed: Luck? Like the Irish?
Bubbles: Oh, Ed. Luck doesn't fall only on St. Patrick's Day, silly.
Ed: Oh, you mean like the movie, "Invasion Of The Car Snatchers?!" when the evil alien leprechauns came and possessed the drivers' innocent cars?!!!!
Bubbles: *screams* You're scaring me, Edd! Hold me, Timmy! *hugs Timmy and cries*
Timmy (in unison to Bubbles crying in his arms): Uh Lumpy, what does your stupid monster-movie tales have to do with the Brickyard 400?
Ed: I forget.
Bart: I just don't get it, Lisa. Why did NASCAR have to alter our cars' performances just for this race? I'd love riding a 230 mph, stock-car rocket every weekend!
Lisa: Why, Bart? Because first of all, the fans wanted to see more intense racing, and second, due to the incredible 230 mph speeds and powerful g-forces in the Turns, relating to the standard open-wheel indycar's performance, we have to be extra-careful with these special cars due to the fact one of us might go airborne if we crash at those type of dangerous speeds. This is the only track on the schedule that can tolerate this type of speed and racing.
Eli Gold (TNN): We are here live from the historic, world-renowned Indianapolis Motor Speedway for today's live coverage of the Brickyard 400! Note, this is our only NASCAR Winston Cup Series telecast, since we cover all of our NASCAR Busch Series events. Today is an exception due to the IMS Radio Network taking charge of the radio airwaves, and ESPN's own Bob Jenkins is reuniting with the IMS Radio Network to cover the action for this special occasion. Anyway, this rectangle-shaped racetrack had always been THE track to win because not only the winner will receive the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway milk, but his or her name will be added into the IMS history books. Hello, folks this is Eli Gold, along with Buddy Baker and Dick Berggren. This year, guys will have a major twist in the cars, the style, and the speed today.
Buddy Baker (TNN): And the reason why, Eli is because one of the drivers of Team Fastex, Jimmy Neutron, has worked with NASCAR in improvin' their technology by altering the cars' characteristics for certain events. Both NASCAR and Jimmy Neutron had created these special open-wheel Indycar characteristics, which is the speed increasin' to 230 mph, the suspension creating powerful g-forces in the turns, and makin' racin' more complicated for all of these drivers. But the most difficult part with these Indycar-style handlin' stock-cars, is that you can't make one mistake on the racetrack. I mean with this speed and suspension, you might be in huge trouble in huge trouble if one mistake is made.
Dick Berggren (TNN): Indeed, Buddy. Both Timmy Turner and Jimmy Neutron tested here in these cars all week long, and they said these cars are perfect and raceable and that today's race will be one to see for the ages.
Eli Gold (TNN): Will these cars make the best show of the year today? We will find out in 160 laps. The drivers, the spectators, and us at TNN Motorsports are ready for the start of the Brickyard 400! Let's go trackside for the command!
Tom Carnegie (IMS P.A Announcer): And now for the most famous words in all of auto-racing, please welcome the chairperson Of The Board Of The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Mary Hulman George. *crowd cheers and roars loudly*
Mary Hulman George: Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. *crowd cheers and roars loudly*
[engines start and rev loudly, in unison to the cheering and roaring crowd]
Eli Gold (TNN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering and roaring crowd): Will these Brickyard-style machines put on a great show?! We will find out now *crowd cheers/roars louder as the pace-car pulls into the pits* as the pace-car pulls into pit-road, and we're ready to start the 7th annual Brickyard 400! Bart Simpson will lead the field to the green flag once it drops! Indy 500 great, A.J Foyt has green flag in his hands... *cars accelerate to take the green flag waved by A.J Foyt, in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering/roaring crowd* and now he waves it as the Brickyard 400 is underway! We're glad you're sharing the day with us on TNN Sports!
Paul Page (IMS Radio): GREEN FLAG IS OUT! The Brickyard 400 is underway! Bart Simpson accelerates and gets a good start! The field now thunders into Turn #1!
Ron Carol (IMS Radio): And it's gonna be Bart Simpson out in front, then Timmy Turner in 2nd, 3rd is Remy Buxaplenty, then Bubbles Turner's in 4th! They're in Turn #2!
Howdy Bell (IMS Radio): And we got our eyes on em' right now as we see it is Bart Simpson 1st, Timmy Turner 2nd, Bubbles Turner just took 3rd, Buxaplenty 4th, Morebucks 5th! They roar down the backstraightaway!
Larry Henry (IMS Radio): Bart Simpson in the #40 Coors Light Chevrolet leads down the backstraightway, but Bubbles Turner is moving up to 2nd already! Bubbles Turner's trying to catch up with Bart Simpson! as they for Turns 3 & 4 here at Indy!
Bob Jenkins (IMS Radio): It's a good race for 2nd! Bart Simpson is your leader! Bubbles Turner's now in 2nd, followed by Timmy Turner in 3rd, then Princess Morebucks in 4th, as we're about to complete Lap #1!
Paul Page (IMS Radio): Everyone expected the pole-sitter would come around and lead the first lap and it is gonna be Bart Simpson in the #40 Coors Light Chevrolet doing so! In 2nd is Bubbles Turner as they head back into Turn #1!
Eli Gold (TNN): We have 8 laps to go in the Brickyard 400! *scene cuts to the track, facing the 2 leaders, Lisa, and Morebucks* So far, the only 2 REXCOR drivers still on the track are Morebucks in 2nd, and Plankton who had just made a pitstop. Meanwhile, the leaders race they're way into Turn #2! *scene cuts to Morebucks' cockpit*
(Coming off Turn #2, on the backstretch, backstraightaway, and into Turn #3)
Princess Morebucks (in 2nd / side by side for the lead): Hey, Lisa The Loose-ah! If you ever won here at Indy, would your would your mother feed the winning milk through a lousy baby bottle?! *scene cuts to Lisa's cockpit*
Lisa (in 1st): Nah, that's YOUR "glass", due to the fact you WHINE like one when you don't win, crash, or don't get your way! *scene cuts to the track*
Princess Morebucks (in 2nd / side by side / in her head): I have something for that Loose-ah! *scene cuts to the track*
Larry Henry (IMS Radio): Morebucks' on the inside, Simpson's on the outside, Morebucks dives down the bottom of the racetrack! *in unison, Morebucks forcefully rams into Lisa's #88 Quality Care Ford, causing her car to go airborne and crash into the catchfence* (with sudden realization, hysterically), SHE GOES HIGH!!!! scene cuts to Lisa's cockpit as her rear-end of the car went airborne*
Lisa (as she spun and went airborne): Whoa--! *suddenly exclaims in horror as Megan Fassler did in the "NASCAR Racers" episode, "Duck Out Of The Way!", and hits the catchfence*
*scene cuts to horrified crowd gasping loudly in horror while watching the melee, then the scene cuts to the track*
Larry Henry (IMS Radio / hysterically): THEY BOTH CRASH!!!! LISA SIMPSON GOES AIRBORNE AND CRASHES INTO THE TURN #3 CATCHFENCE!!!! *scene cuts to Jack Fassler and Duck Dunaka in the pits*
Paul Page (IMS Radio / as Jack and Duck gasped in horror): An incredible accident (as he said in the movie "Driven")
Jack Fassler (as he began running away from Duck): Oh, no, Lisa!
Duck (as Jack was running away from him): Wait a minute, Jack! THE CARS ARE STILL ON THE TRACK! *scene cuts to the TNN Broadcast Booth*
Eli Gold (TNN): NASCAR has immediately brought out the red flag due to the melee in Turn #3! Safety vehicles are IMMEDIATELY on the way to the scene of the accident along with Team Fastex owner, Jack Fassler. *scene cuts to the track, were, Timmy, Spongebob, Bart, Buttercup, Rudy, Edd, Ed, were racing side by side*
*the cars suddenly swerve as they were screeching to a halt*
Timmy (in 8th /voice only as he was skidding and screeching to a halt / in horror): WHOA!!!! The track's blocked!
Spongebob (in 9th / while skidding and screeching to a halt / in horror) *screams hysterically in horror as he did in the "Spongebob Squarepants" episode, "Bossy Boots"* *scene suddenly cuts to Rudy's cockpit*
Rudy (in 10th / while skidding and screeching to a halt / hysterically in horror): NO!!!!! *scene cuts to Edd's cockpit*
Edd (in 11th / while skidding and screeching to a halt): GRACIOUS, LOOK AT THAT!!!! *scene cuts to Bart's cockpit*
Bart (in 12th / while screeching to a halt / hysterically in horror): NOOOO!!!! NOT MY SIS!!!!! *scene cuts to Ed's cockpit*
Ed (in 13th / while skidding and screeching to a halt / in horror): The sky is falling!!!! *scene cuts to the track*
*all cars skid to a halt, and Bart exits hits #40 Coors Light Chevrolet*
Bart (while running to Lisa's destroyed #88 Quality Care Ford / in horror): I'M COMING FOR YOU, SIS!
*Bart yanks Lisa out of the car, carries her, and escapes the wreckage*
Bart (softly): You'll be okay, Lisa. I promise. *tears up and cries in fear on Lisa*
Spongebob (in a crying way): *sobs* Is Lisa gonna be alright?! *sobs more*
Timmy: She's tough, Sponge. She'll fight this and be a-okay. *scene cuts to TNN Broadcast Booth*
Eli Gold (TNN): Paramedics, safety vehicles, Jack Fassler, and a helicopter now arrive at the scene of the vicious accident *scene cuts to the track* to console Lisa Simpson and transport her to the nearest medical facility so that hopefully she can heal and recover.
Buddy Baker (TNN): I don't know if Lisa will survive this, this pretty much was a scary accident.
Dick Berggren (TNN): Lisa might be unconscious, but all we know is that Lisa might fight it and that regaining consciousness and healing really matters. *scene cuts to the accident scene with the paramedics lifting Lisa (on the stretcher) into the helicopter*
Jack Fassler (worried): *grunts as he gets on the helicopter* Come on, LET'S GET HER TO THE HOSPITAL! *door slams shut and the helicopter takes off*
Lisa (weakly): *slowly wakes up in her hospital bed after regaining consciousness from her coma* M-M-Mr. Fassler... M-M-Mom.... th-th-the race.... did we win?
Jack Fassler: The race is still under the red flag after an hour for cleanup in Turn #3. I just heard from NASCAR that they're gonna bring out the yellow flag in 15 minutes so we can finish off the Brickyard 400. REXCOR has only 1 driver left after many of their drivers crashed or had mechanical issues during the race. Plankton is the only driver left, and we can easily beat him.
Marge (tearfully): Oh.. L-L-Lisa... m-m-my poor baby girl... I-I-I can't believe you suffered an accident like this. I was really worried about you, Lise. *hugs Lisa in her bed and kisses her on the cheek crying*
Lisa (weakly): Don't worry, Mom. I-I-I'll be alright after a while. (worried) *gasps* I gotta return to the racetrack and support my team! *tries getting up, but struggles, and gently lays down as Jack and Marge gently put her down on her pillow*
Jack Fassler: You're not getting out of that bed until the doctor says you're well, young lady.
Lisa (weakly): I just hope this near-fatal crash doesn't keep me from racing or force you to only make me an assistant in the pits with Miles.
Jack Fassler (calmly): Don't worry, Lisa. The doctor said you will be cleared to return in 2 weeks when we go to Plainsville (foreshadowing the "2000 Chalkzone 400 Fantasy Edition" wiki), but you will have to miss Watkins Glen next week (foreshadowing the "2000 Global Crossing At The Glen Fantasy Edition" wiki) ln account of your road to recovery and therapy.
Eli Gold (TNN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering Mac on): The white flag is out here in Indianapolis! Will it be Plankton Or Kazoo?! Here they come into into the first 2 corners for the final time this afternoon!
Buddy Baker (TNN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering Mac on): "Mad Mac" is drivin' all he can to try and get by Plankton! He KNOWS they don't REXCOR winnin' the Brickyard 400!
Dick Berggren (TNN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering Mac on): Indeed, Buddy! Look at him right now! He's just HOUNDING over Plankton!
Eli Gold (TNN / in unison to the HYSTERICALLY cheering Mac on): Mac sways and looks to the left and to the right! Sheldon J. Plankton Plankton doing all he can to stay stable. and hold him off for the Brickyard 400 win! *scene cuts to Plankton's cockpit*
(in Turn #3, the short-chute, and in Turn #4)
Plankton (in 1st): I told you, creetin'! You have no chance at passing me for the win! my car is too good! *scene cuts to Mac's cockpit*
Mac Kazoo (in 2nd): And I always told you that racing's like a Chunky Puff Box, you never know what's gonna happen! *scene cuts to the track*
