Michael and Kitt enter the Alternative 2000, a cross country race for cars that run on alternative fuel. They are there to find a saboteur, not to win, but find themselves having to rescue nosy reporter Liberty Cox in each lap.

In this episode, an orange Dodge Charger is a participant in the race. The car is driven by a pair of relatives, one with blonde hair, and one with dark hair. The pair have a Dixie flag on their uniforms. Also, their vehicle is powered by moonshine. This seems like a reference to the series The Dukes of Hazzard, where a pair of cousins drive an orange Dodge Charger with a confederate flag painted on the roof, and have a family history of driving moonshine around a dry county.

In the scene right after the yellow solar-powered Shelby car is hit by the sniper, you can see a dinged area of missing paint on the fender above the blown tire, indicating that the car was hit there. Yet in the subsequent shots of the car when Michael and K.I.T.T. rescue it and the lady driver from the edge of the cliff, the fender paint is fine. See more
What a disaster. Look at it. There isn't a sober journalistic face to be seen. There isn't one scientific quarterly writer. The whole thing has turned into a blood and guts demolition derby. It's a car crash carnival.
