The event's three original previews.
When first incorporated into the game, this event was listed as #9 and its description was slightly different: "Kill your speedy opponent before time runs out."
The preview image of this event was changed twice over the development of SSF2. It was first changed in Beta 1.2.4 due to Captain Falcon receiving new sprites, and it was changed again in Beta 1.3.1 due to Sand Ocean receiving new sprites.
