After winning a practice race, Speed Racer is offered a driver position on the factory racing team owned by the company who employs his father, Pops Racer. Speed declines the offer because Pops is opposed to him becoming a professional driver. Meanwhile, Pops resigns his engineering job with the factory after an argument with chief engineer Mr. Van Ruffle during a board meeting where the board rejects his plans for improving the Mach 5. While Speed drives Pops home, a gang of thugs on racing bikes snatch Pop's briefcase with the plans. Speed jumps from bike to bike trying to get the plans back, but fails. He spots Trixie overhead in the helicopter and radios her to pursue the thug with the plans. She buzzes him, forcing him to drop the briefcase and crash off the edge of the mountain road. Speed recovers the briefcase. That night at the Racer home, Pops plans what he is going to do now that he has no job. He decides to remodel the Mach 5 himself, but does not know how he will come up with the money that he will need. Later, at Van Ruffle's house, the thugs explain how they failed to get the plans. Ace Deucey crashes the meeting and makes a deal with Van Ruffle to steal the plans for $5,000. The next day Speed visits Sparky to let him know he is selling the Mach 5 to help raise the money Pops needs to build the new engine. Sparky suggests that Speed should enter the Sword Mountain Race for a $5,000 prize, and Speed decides to enter the race. Meanwhile, Ace pays a visit to Pops at the Racer home. Ace pulls a gun and starts searching for the plans but does not find them. Speed arrives and interrupts him. Deucey leaves, vowing to come back for the plans. Deucey did not find the plans because Pops has hidden the plans on a spare windshield using invisible ink. Taking out the Mach 5 for a road test, a dirty racer named Skull Duggery rams the car, causing Speed to throw a wheel and crash. Back at the garage, the car is repaired, but they need a new windshield. Spritle Racer and Chim Chim walk in with Pop's windshield. Ace finds out that the plans are on the windshield and goes after the Mach 5. He and his gang start to wipe out the other cars in the race. They catch up to Speed and try to run him off the road. Speed guesses where the plans are hidden and avoids getting his tires shredded by Ace's gang by hitting the auto jack button. The Mach 5 is propelled over the guardrail and down an embankment.

Speed reviews all the special features of the Mach 5. Resuming the Sword Mountain Race, Ace Deucey and his gang watch Speed race down the embankment and escape. Speed races to catch up to the rest of the racers and eventually takes the lead from Duggery, However, he soon encounters Ace and his gang racing towards him from the opposite direction. He detours off the race course and uses the rotary saws to cut a path through the overgrown terrain. Duggery follows Speed, with Ace and his gang close behind. Trixie creates a distraction by bombing the gang with smoke-filled flares from her plane. Duggery makes a decision to take a shortcut at a crossroad. Speed realizes Duggery is headed to a very dangerous volcano and follows him. Meanwhile, Trixie continues to distract Ace and his gang with smoke bombs, but they shoot and damage her plane, forcing Trixie to bail out. At the volcano's edge, Duggery is thrown from his car and is left dangling from a rock in the crater. Speed falls into the crater while looking for Duggery and lands on a ledge just above Duggery. Speed saves Duggery just as the rock gives way. They climb out of the crater, only to find Ace and his gang have arrived and have Trixie as a hostage. Ace orders his gang to finish off Speed and Ace. Just as the gang is about to finish off Speed, Spritle and Chim Chim start shooting rocks at Ace's gang from the trunk of the Mach 5 with a slingshot. Speed and Duggery take advantage of the distraction to attack the thugs, but Ace escapes in the Mach 5. Speed races in pursuit using Ace's car, but it cannot catch the Mach 5. Ace does not know how to control the special features of the Mach 5 and ends up causing the car to slow down, giving Speed a chance to catch up to him. Speed leaps into the Mach 5 and wrestles with Ace. At the last second, Speed is able to throw Ace from the car and regain control of the Mach 5 before it drives off the edge of a cliff. Speed thinks he is safe and has a moment to rest, but Ace reappears and prepares to kill Speed. Speed smashes the windshield of the Mach 5 with his helmet and leaps at Ace, throwing him over the side of the cliff. Speed watches Duggery race past in his car and resumes the race. Speed passes Duggery and wins the race, but the results of the race are nullified due to the interference of Ace and his gang.

While Speed Racer and Trixie are driving to the shipyard, they both see the Masked Racer's car being held there for an upcoming Trans-Country Race. Trixie suggests that Speed should enter the race and he agrees. At the Racer homestead, Pops watches TV and learns that Speed is entering the Trans-Country Race. Now, Pops blows a gasket and has a remembrance of the time his oldest son, Rex, entered and joined a race without any permission from him. Almost close to victory, Rex crashed the car that was built for him by Pops. Although Rex was not injured, Pops forbids his son to drive again due to Rex's lack of experience. Rex made a vow to never return home. The Alpha Team is on a conference, discussing many cheating ways to win the race. Mr. Wiley suggests Mr. Fixer and the Alpha Team driver Zoomer Slick to pull the dirty tricks first. With determination to beat the Masked Racer, Speed sneaks out in the middle of the night and goes to the track. Even with the heavy rains, Speed is not soaked. Out of nowhere, the Masked Racer warns Speed to stay out of the Trans-Country Race. He declines and says he wants to beat him and the only way to do it is to race blindly into the night. Speed mysteriously crashes when an unknown person cuts a rope, causing a cascade of logs to block the track. Speed goes tumbling out of the car and falls unconscious.

The elderly son of a deceased gangster drives a Model T that contains a code for a missing haul of stolen money, a haul that Tongue Blaggard, a brutal gang leader, is determined to find. During this episode, Speed attends a road racing school where Racer X suddenly appears, wheels the Mach 5 through a tricky slalom course, and thus intimidates the other drivers and the school instructor, but not Speed; Racer X also chances upon Pops, Mom and Speed, all remembering Rex and saddened in wishing he would return - a wish Rex quietly vows to someday keep. Speed Racer, Spritle, and Chim Chim go out for a test drive for the Mach 5. The radio makes an announcement that Tongue Blaggard made an escape from prison. The Racers meet a girl and her grandfather whose Model T racing car broke down on the road. Speed offered to help out, but the old man declined. Later on, the racers find the broken down Model T again. Now the old man changes his mind, and accepts Speed's help. While the Racers dine with the old man with his granddaughter and his adopted children, Blaggard steals the Model T racing car, hoping that it once belonged to the crook, Lightfingers Clepto. With the car stolen, Speed vows to bring back the stolen car back. Trixie in her helicopter spots the stolen Model T and brings it into Pops' garage for minor repairs. On his hideout, Blaggard recalls his encounter with the inmate who told him about the Model T vehicle's secret engine number that leads to the loot. Making a decision to bait Blaggard, Speed adorns the Mach 5 using a flag to bear the engine's secret code. Blaggard's men follow him while a cargo helicopter flies ahead. The thugs set a fire on Speed and the old man, until Racer X arrives to defend his brother. Instead, he ends up on the edge's cliff. The helicopter lowers a ramp to unload a squad of weapon-carrying motorcyclists.

When Trixie was granted the position of Speed's assistant in the No Limit World Race, Inspector Detector and his officials search each entry, looking for $50,000,000 in stolen gold bars before the race begins. When the Mammoth Car enters the track, its driver gives the Inspector a tour, showing no trace of the gold. When the race begins, the Mammoth Car forces everyone off the road, making Speed a bit suspicious. On its way to discover the Mammoth Car's secret, he equips the homing robot with X-ray film so he can be able to penetrate the metal. The robot is shot at and returns home broken. Now, the Mammoth Car catches up to Speed and forces the Mach 5 off the road. When a ramp is lowered, a squad of motorcyclists descends onto the road. Racer X appears and spills oil on the road, causing the bikers to crash. At the airport, Spritle and Chim Chim stow away aboard Cruncher Block's airplane. Meanwhile on the road, the Mach 5 and the Mammoth Car both collide and veer off the road towards the forest. While Speed uses his rotary saws to cut down the trees, the Mammoth Car's power mows its own path. Speed turns around and tries to slash the car's tires, but the Mammoth Car dodges it and encircles the Mach 5. Guns emerge from its sides. Speed closes the cockpit to block the shower of bullets and escapes through a gap and plunges into a lake.

After Speed attacks one of the rebels that was trying to torch the Mach-5, Kim learns that the Black Tiger was actually blown up by Schemer under Gallant's order to ensure he would stay with the army and not enter the desert race. Kim and Gallant believe the Flat Hill government is corrupt and that their rebel cause is just. To determine who is the better racer, Speed and Kim decide to race each other without the use of brakes since the Black Tiger's brakes are still broken. While they are out racing, members of the Rebel Army led by Schemer kidnap Trixie and lock her up in their dungeon where they are also holding Prince Omar. We learn that it was all a hoax and that Schemer's intention was to rule Flat Hill Country for their own selfish purposes. We also learn that they planted a scorpion in Speed and Kim's cars to get rid of them permanently. Speed and Kim's race was rendered incomplete when the Black Tiger gets caught in quicksand. The government of Flat Hill Country led by General Abdul Noble comes to the aid of Kim and Speed after they previously rescued Spritle and Chim Chim. The two of them have discovered the trick and decide to join forces to fight Schemer's forces and rescue Trixie and Prince Omar. In the end, they succeed and Speed alone enters the Desert Race, easily winning, with Kim on the sidelines cheering.

At a meeting of the League of Countries, Chief Zuma, the representative from Kapetapek, announces his government's decision to close its borders to the outside world. An official proposes that if Kapetapek's race car driver, named Kabala, beats Speed Racer, then its borders can remain closed. At the racetrack, Speed receives an invitation to the Fire Festival Race. Speed finds this peculiar because Kapetepec does not have a racetrack and Kabala has been missing for a long time. Nevertheless, Speed and company arrive in Kapetapek. They spot Racer X, who was also invited. That night Chief Zuma lets it be known that "the winner of the race will be bridegroom" to his granddaughter, Princess Silvana. He points out Speed as the probable winner. But when a jealous Trixie makes it clear that Speed is taken, another driver, Mr. Kadar, steps forward with his offer of matrimony. Later, Mr. Kadar captures the Princess and demands to know where the country's treasure is hidden. Speed comes to her rescue. The next day, the racers and their cars are carried by raft to a secret entrance in a volcanic mountain. The racers drive through a tunnel to an ancient city with bejeweled statues. The race is set to begin once the volcano erupts. An official announces that the cars will drive through 800 miles of volcanic tunnel. Whoever reaches the exit before the split in the mountain closes will win the race. Amid falling debris, an unsteady terrain, and the threat of impending molten lava, the drivers line up. Kabala shows up and the race begins.

In the volcanic mountains of Kapecapek, Speed is competing in the most unusual race of his life. Kadar and his men find diamonds encrusted in the mountain wall. A creeping vine grabs his men (who escape), while Kadar holds Kabala at gunpoint. Speed throws a knife, knocking the gun out of Kadar's hand. A fight ensues and Kabala's mask falls off, revealing Racer X. Racer X is about to give Speed an explanation when the ground caves in. Kadar and his thugs leave with the Kapecapekian treasure. Speed and Racer X find a way out. Racer X tells Speed that the real Kabala taught him "tricks on how to race on tortured roads and broken trails." Once Racer X turned professional, he had a race with his mentor, who, unfortunately, fell victim to a landslide. To return Kabala's kindness, Racer X disguised himself as Kabala to protect the Kapecapekian treasure. Kadar and his men succumb to the lava flow. Speed, followed by Racer X, exits the mountain just as it erupts and seals the split. Although Speed won the race, the Chief will not concede. Speed points out that Kabala is really Racer X, who suggests that Kapecapek keep its borders open "some of the time". The Chief agrees to do so.
