The second full-length story burns rubber with a ghost that's perfect for the racing backdrop. The identity of this particular spectral speedster makes perfect sense. Newcomer to the Mystery Machine Magnon tunes up the characterization for the sleuths.

Batic and Ottolini have always been reliable pit crews for Scooby and the Gang, but this lap is rather spectacular. Before the checkered flag waves on the next page, Shaggy in a state of sheer turnpike terror picks up Velma by her robe collar while Velma remains completely nonplused about her friend's frightened foot race.
