As many of you may already know, I am a Star Wars freak; a super freak even! As a result of this, I have always made it a point to put at least one Star Wars related “easter-egg” into each “Come Drive With Us” movie. Here they are!
The Reedy Race (Blu-Ray): The Death Star (17:10)
The Nitro Challenge (Blu-Ray): Boba Fett (07:35)
In addition to the famous “Wilhelm Scream” in the opening credits sequence, Boba Fett is seen loitering about the AKA pits.

ROAR Nats: “No no no this one goes there that one goes there right?” (05:26)
The easter-egg was a bit more subtle for the ROAR Nats and was limited to the re-use of a famous line from “The Empire Strikes Back”. Unfortunately for Ty, he has taken on the role of Chewbacca the Wookie. This line has been used in other sources as well. Season 1 of the ABC hit series “Lost” featured it as well (Exodus Part 2).

The Shootout: Probe Droid (08:13)
Another much more subtle easter-egg is the Imperial Probe Droid from the Hot-Rod Hobbies Shootout Movie.
