As time and money allow, plans are made for future trips throughout the summer. Most of the time, these missions will not be announced ahead of time.

Participants are told that if they participate in illegal street racing or takeovers, they could be arrested, have their cars towed, or get traffic tickets. These missions aim to stop people from doing these illegal and risky things, often leading to car accidents, shootings, and other crimes.
