Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
After Jerry runs into an old acquaintance, a years-old foot-race between the two men becomes a subject of debate and they decide to run a rematch to settle it once and for all. Meanwhile, things are looking "red" for the rest of the gang when Elaine discovers that her new boyfriend is a communist, George is reprimanded by George Steinbrenner when it comes out that he'd answered a personal ad in a communist newspaper, and Kramer recites communist rhetoric while working as a department store Santa Claus. Todd Kimsey, Don McManus, and Vicki Lewis guest star and co-creator/writer Larry David appears uncredited as the voice of George Steinbrenner. Originally airing December 15, 1994, "The Race" was the 12th episode shot for the show's sixth season, despite being the tenth one shown.
