The Race, the 10th episode of season six and the 96th overall, was first broadcasted on December 15, 1994 with a story by Tom Gammill & Max Pross and Larry David & Sam Kass and a script by Gammill, Pross, and David.
Jerry meets an old rival, who suspects that he cheated in a high school race. Elaine is put on a “blacklist” and finds out her boyfriend, Ned (Todd Kimsey), is a Communist. George responds to a personal ad in a Communist newspaper. Kramer becomes a department store Santa.
I love the way this episode was presented, the storyline centering around Jerry and his rival is nicely done, the homages to Superman are well-written, and George’s storyline is nicely done too.
