IGPX enjoyed time on the [[UnCancelled revived]] Creator/{{Toonami}} block, airing at 2:30 AM. On October 19th, Toonami aired the last two episodes back-to-back at 2:30 and 3:00 AM as a "one-hour finale", pre-empting ''Star Wars: The Clone Wars'' for one night. Afterwards, the show moved to 4:30 AM for its second run, and was taken off the air to make room for ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' once that run was finished. It now currently resides off the air in Toonami's "Regular Rotation" of shows they permanently own the rights to.

Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: Team Skylark- and eventually Satomi- use the "slipstream" or drag from a slower leading mech to catchup. This technique is also used in NASCAR, known as "drafting".

Winning the minor league championship, IGPX-2, with sheer luck, Team Satomi is promoted to compete with five teams in the IGPX-1 division, home to the best of the best. The rookie team consists of [[SkilledButNaive Takeshi Jin]], a talented hotshot, [[ShrinkingViolet Amy Stapleton]], who at thirteen is a prodigy, telepathically linked to her feline [[TalkingAnimal co-pilot Luca]], and [[FieryRedhead Liz Ricarro]], a hotheaded martial artist. Supporting the pilots on the sidelines: owner and supervisor [[TeamMom Michiru Satomi]], mechanic [[TheEngineer Mark Ramsey]], assistant [[CuteSportsClubManager Jessie Martin]], backup pilot [[TheResenter River Marque]], and coach [[TheObiWan Andrei Rublev]]. Together they form a close team as they reach for the crown.

The sport IGPX combines motor racing with RollerDerby, via teams consisting of three HumongousMecha and their pilots. Races consist of 180 miles of track, with much of that length suspended hundreds of feet in the air in loops, tunnels, turns, and diverted side-tracks. After the first lap, competing teams are allowed to use their mecha to disable or slow down those of the other team in an all out melee at 350mph (565kph). At their discretion, racers may [[TransformingMecha transform into a high speed mode]] in the third and final lap... [[FragileSpeedster if their opponents are kind enough to let them]].

* SuperToughness: Team Black Egg's hat is super defense. This doesn't help them in the initial run, as they're in last place at the end and replaced with White Snow.

* MightyGlacier:
** Team Black Egg's hat is super defense.
** Team White Snow's "Operation Snowman" falls into the same category; they lose because Team Satomi is a lot harder to hit.

Originally rejected as a series when pitched to Cartoon Network, a Microseries was released in 2003 as a replacement in {{Toonami}}'s Total Immersion Event. {{Ratings}} were high enough, and viewer response good enough, that it was picked up as a 13-episode series airing in 2005. A second season began airing in 2006, but got moved from Saturdays at 10:30 to Friday at midnight.
