Nate is watching a car race on his TV. Whisper asks his master why he is so excited. Nate replies that he loves car races. All of a sudden, a vortex sucks him, Whisper, and Jibanyan to Yo-kai World.

Nate notices the sign for the starting line says "Yo-1 Grand Prix." This shocks Whisper, but it also causes him to give a further explanation to Nate. Out of nowhere, Speedemountain drops in front of Nate, Whisper, and Jibanyan. Whisper to explains about this Yo-kai after Nate asks who he is. Speedemountain says he is pleased Nate could make it and offers him an entry to join the race. Nate accepts the offer. In a flash, Speedemountain makes all competitors' cars appear along with changing Nate into race clothes. Speedemountain motivates Nate, Whisper, and Jibanyan as the race preparations are complete.
