In his spare time, Barney builds a sport car, which Fred finds dangerous to drive. However, he hears about the Indianrockpolis 500 race and thinking the prize money can be useful for Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm's student funding, he enters the race but since Mr Slate is unable to give him a day off, he lies that he is sick. Along with Barney, they go to the race track without telling the wives, but Fred must enter the race under a false name: Goggles Paesano. But how can they easily fool Mr Slate who attends the race, as well as Betty and Wilma who saw Barney waiving at the crowd, and knowing Fred can risk his life on a track where he drives like he's coming home on the freeway...

The Flintstones is an animated, prime-time American television sitcom that was broadcast from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966, on ABC. The show, produced by Hanna-Barbera, fancifully depicted the lives of a working-class Stone Age man, his family, and his next-door neighbor and best friend.

The show's continuing popularity rested heavily on its juxtaposition of modern everyday concerns in the Stone Age setting. The Flintstones was the most financially successful network animated franchise for three decades, until The Simpsons debuted. In 2013, TV Guide ranked The Flintstones the second Greatest TV Cartoon of All Time (after The Simpsons).

Fred and Barney enter their sports car into the Indianrockopolis 500, with Fred adopting the sporting moniker "Goggles Paesano." Note: The teaser is a scene from the middle of the episode.
