The Saturday Night Speedway Tournament semifinals were a blast, but one race in particular had an absolute nail-biter of a finish. In the clip above, you see Knives_x in a tiebreaker with Tacocat. Knives_x is racing as Toad, and Tacocat is playing as Dry Bowser.
In the final moments of the race, Knives_X was in the lead for most of the time, but Dry Bowser ended up squeaking by with mere feet left to the finish line. Thankfully Knives_X had a green shell, and with perfect placement and a lot of luck, Knives_X manages to zip back into first while Dry Bowser is flailing from the hit. That win secured Knives_X a spot in the finals, and served up Tacocat an absolutely brutal defeat.
In a quick interview with Kotaku, Knives_X looks back on the moment she secured the win.
“I was in fight or flight at that moment so I think it was all due to reflex. The moment I crossed the finish line I looked at the [technical official] behind me to confirm if that really happened.”
