Recovering from her wreck, Megan trains alone on the Team Fastex simulator â€” alone, until she encounters a mysterious virtual reality driver who has somehow penetrated the simulator's computer. Despite her suspicions, a lonely and vulnerable Megan finds herself attracted to the unknown driver. The driver makes a deal with her: if she drives as his co-pilot in a virtual reality race, he'll reveal his identity. But Megan doesn't know that the VR driver is a computerized Lyle Owens, and that in the ""VR"" race she'll be operating Owens' real car by remote control, racing it against her own Fastex teammates. Only when she's almost won the race for Owens does she realize the truth and turn Owens' car against Rexcor.
