The Race for Gold is the sixtieth episode of Bakugan Battle Planet.
The Awesome Ones search for an entrance to the Maze in the Yucatán Peninsula. Magnus confronts Dan and the others, planning to use them to find a way to the Core Cell, he needs them to guide him. With the power of AAAnimus' device, Magnus opens a portal to the Maze, in search of the Core Cell.
The Awesome Ones and Magnus find themselves in the same location where Drago first evolved, they encounter a familiar face, a golden Bakugan named Pyravian. Pyravian is angry, Magnus believes she is threatening them and sends out Nillious to take her down. Nillious' attacks Pyravian with consecutive attacks, but Pyravian isn't taking a scratch. Magnus says he won't back down, and evolves Nillious into Hyper Nillious to power him up. The Evolved Nillious still is having trouble taking Pyravian down, so Magnus tries to finish the Bakugan with Nova Burst, and Pyravian counters with Phoenix Fire. The two blasts collide, but Phoenix Fire is stronger and ultimately defeats Nillious.
Magnus leaves the battle defeated, and Pyravian tells the Awesome Ones to go home. Dan wonders where Magnus went, thinking that he maybe isn't a bad guy. Dan tells his friends that he believes there is more into him after their epic battle - believing there is good in him.
- Magnus Black (Nillious) vs. Pyravian = Pyravian wins
