Courtney got Trails after getting her drivers license, but that was before she knew that he was way more than not useful. After getting the car she found an unopened envelope inside Trails that said: "Please take care of him. Whatever your problem, he'll help you find the answer." After once being something that could be destroyed, Trails was way better looking now after he got a heavy makeover. However, when Trails takes Courtney against her will to the garage where her boyfriend Wyatt works as a mechanic, she stumbled across the thought of selling him or not. After a suggestion from her bestfriend, Kelly, Courtney has now decided to start with professional racing. How will Courtney deal with a car that has its own mind and racing?

|The show starts with a picture collage of Courtney when she was little showing pics from her childhood (with cars and her grandfather etc.) After that, the camera rolls over Courtney's room where she is sitting in her bed looking at a necklace her grandfather gave her before he passed away. After she has looked on it for a while, she says: "I miss you." Shortly later, her brother jumps in the room and asks Courtney if she is ready for her drivers license test today. She quickly hides the necklace and joins Rae for breakfast downstairs. At the breakfast table, we get introduced to her family which includes her brother Rae, her father Bob, and her mother Teresa. Later, Courtney gets ready for her drivers license test. She doesn't get it the first time, but the second time she does well. When she arrives home, the family stands outside their garage congratulating Courtney with her drivers license. Her father, Bob, is excited to give Courtney a brand new car. When he opens the garage door, he shows Courtney her brand new car. Courtney loves the car and says thanks. She wants to take a test ride and drives to her best friend, Kelly. There she talks with Kelly about normal stuff and then Courtney gets a text message from her boyfriend, Wyatt, which is as follows: "Meet me at Daytona in 15. See you there." She tells Kelly she has to go and drives to Daytona. There we get introduced to her boyfriend, Wyatt, who is a mechanic. He tells Courtney she should take an impromptu (street) race and they invite some people to do the race with them. The next day it's ready for the race. Everything goes as it should, until the end. Right before the finish line, someone comes driving onto the court and gives Trails a big push into the wall and there the screen turns black and the episode ends.
