Synopsis:
Jimmy Olsen and a Roman charioteer become exchanged in time as a result of the activities of Anachronids, faster-than-light robots who have appeared in the Earth-One universe. To counteract the time-warping effect, the Guardians of the Universe enable Flash and Superman to race in the opposite direction, and the two heroes make it a competition against each other. Both save each other from perils along the way, but Jimmy Olsen finds himself condemned to death by a Roman general as a sorcerer, and facing a firing squad of bowmen.

Notes:
3rd race between Superman and The Flash.
