Editor note

CX-5217. Rarity 1 Common. North America NTSC. 1 player only.
Based on the arcade game. Race on 1 of 4 tacks. Before each race is a qualifying lap to earn a starting position. If you don't make the checkpoint in time, game over.

Atari created a prototype of this game that used the Puffer controller. Programmed by Jim Leiterman.

Losing traction actually slows you down; quite unusual for most videogames
