Audio problem: At the Daytona 500, Cole bumps the race leader (Wheeler, I believe) and says "Remember me?" His lips don't move.

Continuity mistake: When Harry is telling Cole to "Run 50 laps your way, then run 50 laps my way and I'll beat you every time," Harry is at first wearing a Georgia bulldogs baseball cap. Then a Florida Gators hat when he leans in the driver's window. Moments later when he speaks to Cole over the radio after the test run has started, he's now wearing a Georgia Bulldogs hat again.
