Feeling inadequate as a father, Homer helps Bart get involved in the soap box derby with a flimsy car, especially compared to the ones used by Nelson Muntz and Martin Prince. When Martin is injured from a race(despite winning), Bart is so impressed that he visit's him in the hospital, where Martin urges him to take his superior car and use it to defeat Nelson, even though he knows it'll cause a rift between him and his father.
