With Season 19 now over, a total of 3 teams have won the Race while also using the U-Turn.  All 3 teams also happen to have at least one Asian teammate:

 - Tammy and Victor (Season 14) - U-Turned Kisha and Jen
 - Nat and Kat (Season 17) - U-Turned Chad and Stephanie
 - Ernie and Cindy (Season 19) - U-Turned Bill and Cathi

Based on average leg placement, the order of the final three teams (Ernie-Cindy, Jeremy-Sandy, Amani-Marcus) remained unchanged from leg 6 through leg 12, and was the order of finish at the finish mat.

I don't think the "million dollar quote" is implemented every season, but the team that has said something along the lines of "this is for one million dollars" usually wins their season.

How did I miss Ernie and Cindy's million dollar quote? "We can't be nice anymore. It's a million dollars."

It has been proven not valid with TAR 14's Jamie's reference to how they lose a million dollars.

Just like how the EP curse is not valid anymore. :cmaslol

The EP hadn't been around for that long; and its no different than the first leg/first place behavior where those teams periodically do win the final leg (not always, and they are not always in the final three.)

10, 14 and 17 are the only seasons that had three teams in the final three that never came last in a non-elimination leg.

That was partly also because pre-TAR10 had Final 3 NELs... :cmaslol

Just looked it up, even taking the F3 NEL out, it still holds true

The following teams were never in danger of elimination (defined as placing last or next-to-last on any given leg):
- Rob/Brennan
- Frank/Margarita
- Dustin/Kandice (AS)
- Margie/Luke
- Meghan/Cheyne
- Jill/Thomas
- Kisha/Jen (UB)
- Ernie/Cindy
- Dave/Rachel

I'll have this in greatest specifics when I update the ranking the teams thread list for TAR 20, but Rachel-Dave are the best performing placement average for a winning team (1.8333), greatest percentage of winning legs on a Race (67%), most number of winning legs (8 of 12) surpassing Meghan-Chenye TAR 15 (7 legs) and Nick-Starr TAR 13 (7 legs), and second best team overall performance placement average (second only to Eric-Jeremy in TAR 9 (1.6923)).
Rachel-Dave are the first team ever to avoid elimination on a leg while not completing a detour or a roadblock and not having a fast forward available. They're also the sixth team to win the first leg and win the Race. (Rob-Brennan TAR 1, Tyler-James TAR 10, Nick-Starr TAR 13, Meghan-Cheyne TAR 15, Enrie-Cindy TAR 19)
Rachel-Dave are the first team ever to reach the finish mat on the final leg and be turned back for not completing a task (in this case, a second roadblock).
Mark and Bopper are the second team to win a fast forward and be eliminated. (TAR 3 Dennis and Andrew).

Eric Sanchez was the only racer who reaches the F3 in the two seasons he took part (TAR9 and TAR11), each one of them with a different partner (Jeremy Ryan and Danielle Turner).  He also has the highest number of legs raced on the history of TAR, 26 (considering the double leg of TAR9 - Russia/Germany - as two separated legs).

Of all the FF users in 20 seasons, only six of them didn't arrive in first place.

-Joe & Bill                  4th
-Dennis & Andrew    10th
-Monica & Sheree      4th
-Tyler & James           2nd
-Rob & Kimberly         3rd
-Bopper & Mark          5th

Incidentally, D&A and B&M, were eliminated because of it.
Also, season 10 and 11 were the only ones (so far) to have a Intersected FF.

To date, every single team who has won the Express Pass has made it into the final 3 (TAR17: Jill & Thomas, TAR18: Gary & Mallory, TAR19: Ernie & Cindy, TAR20: Rachel & Dave).  Looking at the international seasons, TARAus1: Sam & Renae and TARLA3: Felipe & Alejandro, also accomplished it too.

Heather & Eve were the first team to arrive first at a pitstop and get ELd.

Also Mary & Peach were the first all female team to win a leg of the race.

Emily & Nancy were the first team to get ELd from a penalty.
Victoria Rafaeli - BB16 champion hopefully
