** It's possible that the track where the monster truck rally is held is frequented by people living in different towns miles away from Silver City., and the county fairgrounds, where the charity concert takes place, may be the cheapest venue that allowed them to play, and people were bussed in from Silver city, or other nearby towns. Dubious, but possible.

* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: Done by the Cody brothers several times - to stop air traffic out of the airport, sabotage the Pear family's Ford Aerostar van, and to make a copy of the key so they can split up. The first time it works but they are delayed by buying a new car, the second time it makes no difference (Randy just steals another car) and the third time totally backfires when the clerk hears what the key is for and runs off with it.

* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:None of the characters get a dime of the prize money; some of them are still in dire need of some money as they went broke during the events, ruined their careers or are on the run. For example, Tracy's earlier attack against her former boyfriend means she will have her pilot's license revoked, leaving her without a job, and will probably end up serving serious jail time (she outright admits this after crashing the helicopter). Not to mention, she lost her boyfriend (though the guy ''was'' cheating on him, and she and Nick seem to be getting along).]]
