Jensen quickly takes out the Brotherhood before finally being knocked to the ground.

Coach: I guess he didn't like the oatmeal, either.


Ulrich escorts Jensen to the warden's office.

Hennessey: This prison is the home to murderers, rapists, and violent offenders of every kind. The United States Penal System sends me the worst of the worst. But the men you've provoked, well, let's just say Mr. Ames, that the life term you've joined us for may be a lot shorter than you think.

Jensen: I understand tradition. Shuffling up the new guy, having an ass slapping good time up my butthole...

Jensen is hit in the side by Ulrich,

Hennessey: Foul language is an issue for me. While looking over your record, I couldn't help noticing your occupational history. It seems you have some talent behind the wheel. Out of curiosity, when was the last time you raced?

Jensen: It's been a while. I lost my license.

Hennessey: What if I could help you?

Jensen: Get my license back?


Hennessey: I had something else in mind. You're familiar with the Death Race, and the driver the fans call Frankenstein. A man so disfigured by crashes that he's forced to wear a mask. His return to the track is highly anticipated, and therein lies my problem. No one knows yet, but poor Frank died on an operating table not long after his last race. Anyone can wear the mask, but not just anyone can drive the car. You have the skills required to keep the legend alive. I want you to become Frankenstein.

Jensen: No thanks. He's dead. Why don't you just tell the truth?

Hennessey: The audience wants to see Frank again. He moves them. Inspires them. And in this world that's not easy to come by.

Jensen: What makes you think for a second I would risk my life doing this for you?

Hennessey: Win five races, you go free. Those are the rules, and Frank has won four. Win one more, you walk. Call it intuition, but I don't think you belong in here with the rest of these animals.

Jensen: I might surprise you.

Hennessey: The race is Friday, and I need your decision. . . . . You're a skilled driver. You're chances are good. I'm offering you your freedom, Mr. Ames. If it's not worth risking your life for, what is?


Jensen is escorted to the prison garage to meet Coach and his crew, Gunner and Lists.

Lists: Jensen Garner Ames. Moved to the states at twenty-four years old. Named after a car, the Jensen Interceptor. A three time local speedway champion.

Jensen: You've done your homework, or do you just know everything?

Coach: Jensen Interceptor. I had one. Handled like a school bus.

Coach shows Jensen the car he will be driving: A heavily armored 800 horsepower Mustang loaded with offensive and defensive weapons. In the rear is a six inch solid steel shield known as the Tombstone.

Jensen: Where's the ammo?

Hennessey: We get that on race day.

Jensen: Pity.

Coach: Yeah, everyone thinks that... the first time.

Jensen: Thinks what?

Coach: About turning the guns on the guards. About escaping.

Jensen: No, I wasn't thinking that.

Coach: Well I'm glad, because Hennessey's got electric kill switches on all the guns on all the cars. And all the guard towers are fortified, and their guns are bigger than your guns. Oh, did I mention the helicopters and also the fact that we're on an island here a mile from the nearest shoreline? The only way in or out of here is on that one skinny bridge you came in on.


Jensen [seeing Gunner push a button in the car]: What's that?

Hennessey: The most important part of the car.

A cigarette lighter pops out and Gunner lights his cigarette. The races are broken apart into three stages: Stage 1 and 2 are races in which the driver must survive, and Stage 3 you must win the race in order for it to add to the count towards freedom.

Coach: Tomorrow morning you'll meet your navigator, Case. She'll help you navigate the course, reload your weapons, and help with the running of the car.

Jensen: I'd love to talk to her ahead of time before the race.

Gunner: Yeah, I'd like a big-tittied girl to lick peanut butter off my toes, but that ain't gonna happen. This is still a prison, man. She's a chick. They get bussed in from the women's facility upstate.

Coach: It's all about ratings. Fast cars, pretty women...

Gunner: Machine Gun Joe's the only one that has a male navigator, 'cause he's gay.

Lists: Actually it's because he goes through them so fast, and the audience gets squeamish.

Gunner: Yeah he goes through them... through their ass.

Coach: He cuts each kill into his skin as a souvenir, I hear.


Lists gives Jensen a run down on the other drivers:

Lists: 14K. First generation Chinese-American, tenth generation Triad. His father sent him to business school, and he's the only man in here who holds a degree from MIT. He's killed four men off the track...

Hennessey: That we know of.

Lists: ...another seven on it.


Lists: Hector Grimm, the Grimm Reaper. The man's a master. Clinical psychopath. Three time consecutive life sentences. He's killed six men off the track, another twelve on it.


Lists: You've already met the local chapter of the Brotherhood. Their driver, Pachenko, has killed nine men on the track. Nobody knows how many off.


Lists: Travis Colt. Our local superstar. He used to race for Nascar...

Hennessey: Yeah, he was good too.

Lists: ...until he fell asleep behind the wheel of his Mercedes with the help of a bottle of scotch and a handful of ludes. Wiped out the entire patio of Moscala, sent a dozen people to the hospital... and killed three of them.

Coach: Technically, he's the best driver in here but a mean son of a bitch quitter.

Machine Gun Joe and his gang approach Coach and crew. . .

Joe [referring to Jensen]: Who's the new fish?

Coach: Grease monkey.

Joe [to Jensen]: Well well. Monkey. I got a new name for you - Igor, because you about the ugliest motherfucker out here in this prison yo!

Gunner [after Machine Gun Joe leaves]: Man, that's one angry homo.
