Enforced: The plot centers around a race.
Lampshaded: "We have to compete at a track day? Alice will be happy."
Invoked: Alice was hired for The Caper as a getaway driver.
Exploited: ...for an unrelated job, so the police would be distracted trying to run her down while the actual crime took place elsewhere.
Defied: Alice is a fine driver, but local traffic laws and vast differences in car performance make this a very minor advantage.
Discussed: "Trust Alice with this job. I wouldn't be surprised if she jumps three broken bridges and bootleg-turns into a parallel park just getting you to your destination."
Conversed: "So what does Alice do in her off-time, moonlight as a stunt valet?"
Deconstructed: Alice spends all her spare time and money driving her cars, to the detriment of her personal life.
Reconstructed: Alice spends much of her spare time and money driving with the members of the local sports car club.
Played for Drama: Due to her skills, Alice is forced to participate in a high-stakes, top-secret, extremely dangerous race in which finishing in the last four places has a bomb in your car go off. She survives the race.
