Going for Number 1! is the first episode of Scan2Go. It first aired on September 01, 2012 on Cartoon Network in the United States.
The four young Scan2Go racers that comprise J.E.T. (Junior Earth Team) are excited to witness their first exhibition race in space, complete with universally known drivers, a wildly unconventional circuit, and an impressive practice course. Coach Ray pulls them aside to explain how the turbo and power cards are used, and lectures them on race planning. Kaz has a run-in with the Jape Team, who they face in the third race. What Team J.E.T. lacks in planning and skill they make up for with determination, and although they narrowly lose their first race to the Jape Team, the famous lead racer, Dradd, takes note of their impressive spirit and offers a handshake.
