While other sites may be content to bring you Rocktober, Shocktober or Mohawktober, ComicsAlliance is committed to commemorating the things that really matter! That's why this month, we're bringing you 31 days of Speed Racer's signature ride as we celebrate Machtober!DID YOU KNOW...

  • The Racer Motors Mach 4, driven by Rex Racer (who sadly passed away under a cloud of scandal during the Casa Cristo tragedy, allegedly orchestrated by fixer Black Jack Benelli) still holds the WRL track record at Thunderhead with a time of 9:18:65.
  • Unlike the high-performance T-180 models that bookend it, the Mach 5 is a street legal car -- albeit a one-of-a-kind, precision-tuned, custom made one. It was, however, modified by the CIB to give Speed Racer a chance in a particularly brutal Casa Cristo Classic.
  • The Mach 6, driven by Speed Racer, was wrecked in a particularly brutal DNF at the Fuji Helexicon, but was rebuilt in an incredible 32 hours in order to compete in -- and win -- the Grand Prix.

Join us tomorrow for more Machtober celebrations!
