Lots of freight has arrived from the docks and Cormac is worried how he and Old Puffer Pete will get it all delivered in time. He hopes Pete has his fast wheels on today. Pete says that he doesn't, because slow and steady is the way to go. Cormac disagrees and challenges Pete to a race. They will divide up all the deliveries and the first to finish wins. Cormac rushes off with all his loads at once, while Pete only takes what he needs, knowing that he has to pass the yard again. Cormac struggles with the weight, while Pete steadily goes around. To his surprise, Cormac loses the contest, but learns a valuable lesson about efficiency.
