In this race, the competitors moved on to a new track design. The racers go through a few wide turns, in which Dragon's Egg took a comfortable lead over the current second place, Marbly McMarbleface, and Wisp of Darkness in third. Behind them was the championship leader, Ghost Plasma, who used their blocking ability to hold up all the marbles from fourth on back. However, The Flash was able to get past their block, and take fourth. Soon, a possibly faster lane opened up to the racers, but due to the slope of the course, no one took it.
As they came upon a split, Marbly McMarbleface tried to pass up Dragon's Egg, but had a sharp bump on the lane divider and was not successful. Ghost Plasma was able to pass The Flash in the chaos of the split. Almost all the racers took the lower lane, except for Comet and H2 Blue. When the paths fully merged, Wisp of Darkness and Ghost Plasma passed Marbly McMarbleface to take second and third, respectively.
The racers came upon a second set of diverging paths, the leader Dragon's Egg taking the low line, with Wisp of Darkness and Ghost Plasma taking the high line. When the paths converged, Marbly McMarbleface regained second, The Flash came into third, and Pollo Loco passed Ghost Plasma for fifth. The racers entered a hairpin turn, with Dragon's Egg still leading the race. Unfortunately for them, Marbly McMarbleface came into the hairpin too high, and was bumped past by The Flash, Wisp of Darkness, and Pollo Loco.
The racers came into. second hairpin, which Dragon's Egg easily got through. The Flash and Wisp of Darkness kept second and third, but Marbly McMarbleface passed Pollo Loco for a split-second before getting passed again. The racers quickly had to enter a split. Dragon's Egg took the lower line, as well as The Flash, Pollo Loco, and Marbly McMarbleface. On the top line was Wisp of Darkness and Ghost Plasma Luckily for Marbly McMarbleface, Pollo Loco went too high on one of the sides of their lane, and was passed. As the lanes converged, Dragon's Egg kept the lead over The Flash. Marbly McMarbleface and Pollo Loco did not have enough speed coming out of the splits, which allowed Wisp of Darkness and Ghost Plasma to pass them and take third and fourth. A momentary hesitation by Wisp of Darkness when they bounced off a small twig gave Ghost Plasma an opportunity to draft by, but they were unable to.
As they came onto the final stretch, Dragon's Egg held a commanding lead over The Flash. A brief bounce off a twig just before the finish line slowed Dragon's Egg down, but they still finished in first place. The Flash came less than a second behind, having not been able to catch up. Wisp of Darkness and Ghost Plasma crossed in third and fourth, which were helpful points to both these competitors. Marbly McMarbleface had a dangerous bump against the twig, where they almost lost out to Pollo Loco, but was able to remain in control. In fact, Pollo Loco was hung up much longer, and lost two positions to Comet and Glassy right before the finish line, to settle in eighth. Rounding out the top ten were Tarantula and Olympia, both racers who had not yet finished in the top ten. 7 racers failed to finish this race. Cobra, Fantasy, Oddball, Reflektor, Slimer, Snake's Tub, and White Widow were this race's DNFs.
