There are no spring road races in Chicago yet so Tenspeed Heroes visit the Hawthorne Race Track in Cicero, Illinois. Silver Crush, Southern Bling, Spirit of a Nation, French Chick, Saar, Milwaukee Wolf and Fly Dubai run with an asymmetrical gait on a frozen one mile dirt oval. In the sixth race, Everybody Lies and jockey Emmanuel Esquivel surprise the field with victory. It is a bumpy affair with disqualifications and mixed emotions leaving empty pockets for the Heroes.
