The Calabooe Cal 495 (Marked down fom 495) Road Race is about to begin with several cars lined up including Jerry. Tom drives up and knocks Jerry's racer over the line, with Jerry spraying Car exhault in retaliation. Calaboose Cal announces the race and Miss Vavoom asks why no one has ever won the race to which Cal says that no one has ever finished and never will as long as it's his money on the line. As we are about to start, Tom activates Jerry' Horn startling the mouse as He checks the engine, Jerry in retaliation, Megaphone blasts Tom. Cal pauses his announcements to sponsor his dilapidated car dealership. an promotes an almost-new 1947 Buzzkirk Bazooka, which falls apart.

Cal asks Racing Lady, Miss Vavoom, to start the race with the start cannon. As Vavoom counts to three, Cal aims the cannon towards the field causing half the racers to be wiped out (at least seven). The race is on! Cal's motor mouth is going full speed giving a play by play of the race as Tom and Jerry are battling for the lead. Cal then pauses for another commercial for his Calaboose Cal Car Company of Costa Mesa California. Tom and Jerry are still battling for the lead, as Tom is about to squash Jery with a big mallet. while Cal makes yet another car commercial, and promotes a Roadhog Ragtop.

The other drivers, lead by Jerry, head to a few hair pin curves and survive much to the surprise of Cal. Cal has Miss Vavoom use her dangerous curves and stand by the road course to cause a massive pile up of the race cars (at least seven). and Just as Cal thinks He won't have to give away the cash prize, Vavoom says to Cal that Tom and Jerry are still in the race and still battling each other for the lead with Tom using a Fishing Rod, a Whip, and a Giant Spatula to overtake Jerry, but the Mouse's speed overtakes the Kitten. So, Cal tries to get the Racers off course by moving a sign, Leading Tom and Jerry in an ocean, the Racers get back on the track as a Shark furious from His ordeal of the Racers in the Ocean, Bites Cal's tail and chases Him.

Cal comes out of the rubble as He declares His Car company is washed up. but tells the viewers that coming next week, is a new show, called The Calaboose Cal Miracle Instant Weight Loss Program, and He waves goodbye, as Tom, (wearing Cal's hat) Jerry, and Vavoom shrug Their shoulders.
