[show]In a RFF Radio podcast interview with Wally Bransen (Season 8), he said that the Linzs beat them to the finish mat by one or two minutes in the final leg therefore making it the third closest finish ever. The Weavers finished in third place an "hour or two" later. After the Linz family were named the official winners of Season 8, it was revealed that the Bransen and Weaver Families would compete in the "Final Amazing Challenge". The two families would race back and forth between the last roadblock of the race (a map of North and Central America) and a set of 12 clue boxes, each of which contained an icon, representing something the families did on the race. The object of the challenge was to race (as a family) out to the clue boxes, get the icons one at a time, and then place them on the appropriate place on the map. Whichever team finished this challenge first would win a brand new GMC Yukon XL, the same vehicle that had been used on the race. The Bransen family won the challenge and the vehicle.
