Barstow is a town in America on Earth. It's a bit of a backwater, but has a speedway that hosts the Barstow Grand Prix, the Western Auto Wreck scrapyard and an apathetic population.

Fiction[edit | edit source]

Challenge of the GoBots cartoon[edit | edit source]

The Renegades assembled their Electromagnetic Neutralizer near Barstow, where it was discovered by the Guardian Turbo but he was heavily damaged by Crasher, Tank and Screw Head; he managed to make it to the town under his own power, taking refuge in Barstow's scrapyard before he shut down. Thankfully he was saved from being compacted by residents Don and Greg, who mistook him for a real car and entered him in the Barstow Grand Prix. The Guardians soon missed their team-mate and investigations led Leader-1 and Van Guard to the Neutralizer while Scooter and Small Foot tracked Turbo to Barstow. Cy-Kill was briefly able to use the Neutralizer to knock out Barstow's electricity before Leader-1 and Van Guard overpowered him, while Turbo was restored. Speed Is of the Essence

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The town also has a store called Pioneer with a logo that's not a million-billion miles away from that of Pioneer. Coincidence? Almost certainly.
  • Barstow is likely at least named for Barstow, California.
