This is a dice driven stock car racing game, though it has some decisions available to the players. On his turn, a player may choose to roll two dice (regular six siders) and move that many spaces, to take six, meaning to move your car six spaces without rolling or to draft the car in front of you, which allows you to move the same distance as the car in front of you moves. Drafting must be declared before the player controlling the car ahead of you announces whether he’s going to roll the dice or take six. If a player rolls snake eyes, they must roll again using a table printed on the board. The table includes very high movement (moving 13 to 16 spaces) and the normal array of bad things, including crashing out of the race. If a car crashes out of the race, it takes out every car that ends its move in the row of spaces directly in front, behind and next to the car that crashed. Passing, as with most games, is simply a result of moving more spaces than the car you are passing. As with Real Action Stockcar Championship (RASC), the board is designed for 1/144 scale cars (it even comes with the same plastic cars that come with RASC).

This is a decent intro game for younger players but also works well for older players looking for a light racing game. I think the publisher of this game has gone out of business. At the very least, their web site no longer exists.
