Paddy is really upset. His champion racing snail has lost all of its winning form. In desperation, Paddy decides to take the snail’s shell off to reduce its weight and make him more aerodynamic.
With hope in his heart, Paddy sets the snail for the feature event of the Spring Snail Carnival, but it still fails to run a place.
Racing writers gather around Paddy, who tells them: “I am so disappointed. I took the shell off to make my snail run faster, but it didn’t work. If anything, it made him more sluggish.”
