Rating: 2/5

Joey dares Tracey that she can’t make it past the loop. Tracey puts on her sunglasses and tells him to “watch me.” Tracey puts her foot on the pedal while Sarah shouts “wooo!” Tracey swerves and slows down some as she approaches the loop. Tracey wipes out as the car rolls over. Joey winks at her and says he can master it. Joey moves within the loop and crashes it against the wall. Tracey says he was almost perfect.

Sarah slides underneath the car and says something is going on with the brakes. Tracey points out that an airport is being built by them. Sarah exclaims, “what?” and slides out. She says that it’s Joey working inside. Joey waves to them. Tracey says she didn’t know he was training to be a pilot.

Tracey makes her bed in her castle. Sarah says it’s an upgrade from the apartment they had before. Sarah relaxes on the chair. Joey flips the hamburger on the grill in the backyard. Sarah says she could stay here forever. Tracey says it is the life. Livio says the race track is gone. He doesn’t know what happened to it. Sarah looks out the window and says places come and go so quickly. Tracey says she wonders what ever happened to their other friend with the blonde hair. Livio crosses his arms and says she moved out once she found a new boyfriend. Sarah says she sees them every once in awhile. Tracey, Livio and Joey glare at her. She shrugs and says it just happens out of nowhere.
