Matt and his crew are determined to make up for their missed points at Long Beach. With only 2 short weeks before they must drive to Georgia for the next stop, the crew battles with mechanical issues once more. At the same time, they are rushing to prepare a customer's car. Ekaterina, a drifter from Russia, has hired The Drift Cave to prepare her vehicle for the ProAm series. Matt qualifies, but his first opponent is Fredric Aasbo, one of the top drivers on the tour. During the battle, Matt's car hits Aasbo's while following, costing him the battle, and preventing him from driving in the remainder of the competition.
