Object: Become the Champion.
Playfield Overview: Starting from the left side of the playfield
- Scanner. The scanner is an eject hole on the far left side of
the playfield. The scanner is lit by completing all 3 checkered
flag standup targets. When lit the scanner can randomly award
- Left orbit. The left and right entrances to the inner orbit are
considered to be the "short track". There is a spinner at the
entrance to each. The spinners move the lamp for the next available
mode. Each entrance has its own individual buildup
which leads to a timed mode. The left orbit builds to award "SPEED
SHOTS". Also each entrance can trigger a small diverter
pin at the top of the orbit which drops a ball into the pop bumpers.
The orbit shots not only build the entrances but award short
track laps. These laps at various levels can turn on a feature
called "Road Course".
- Left Ramp. The left ramp leads a shot into the side of "The
Hauler". Inside the Hauler is a spinning target not unlike targets
mini-golf. If a ball goes up the ramp and misses the spinning
target, it continues to the back of the ramp and is then pushed
out and around to the right ramp exit. All balls shot onto the ramps
are awarded "Hauler Miles". Hauler miles award 3 different things at
rising levels. These include, light extra ball, light super jackpot,
Light the outlanes ( Special ). If a ball hits the spinning target,
it bounces slightly back and is diverted to "PIT ROAD". Pit Road is
the main ball locking area. Balls that hit the spinning
target move the player up 1 race position. If lock is lit the ball
will be locked on pit road. Otherwise the ball is passed thru the
lock area and back onto the playfield via the Scanner area.
- Test car. The test car is a rotationally molded car which the
player can hit. Hitting the test car a predefined number of times
causes it to rise above the playfield exposing a scoop. This scoop
is called "The Garage". Shots to the garage when lit start
the various modes in the game.
- Right orbit: See left orbit above. The right orbit builds to
award "HARD RACIN".
- Right ramp. The right ramp leads to a diverter which can feed
either flipper inlane. In different modes the diverter attempts to
get the ball to the most helpful flipper. Normally the left ramp
returns the ball to the left flipper, and the right ramp returns the
ball to the right flipper. This enables a player to make a shot that
gets a ball quickly to the opposing flipper. The right ramp
can start and award "Victory Laps", and "Road Course".when lit
- 3 Bank Drop Targets. The 3 bank of drop targets is located just
to the right and below the entrance of the right ramp. These
targets can award different things. The first thing they award is a
bonus X on a per ball basis. The second thing they award is lighting
a collect R-A-C-E shot. R_A_C_E shots are how the player spells RACE
to start main multiball. They can also award,
if lit, Extra Ball, Super Jackpot, and Mode bonus.
- Captive ball. The captive ball has 2 lamps that can be lit with
it. The first is a Jackpot shot. The second is labeled "SPIN". In
normal game play when "SPIN" is lit, hitting it moves the player up
1 race position. This is alternated with the rotating car. In
multi-ball, however, SPIN causes any ball on the racetrack to exit
and a new, higher, jackpot value to be frozen. See Main Multi-ball.
- The Race Track. The race track is a loop that goes completely
around the playfield. Balls can enter the race track from the
plunger lane and from pit road. Balls can exit the race track thru a
diverter leading to pit road, a diverter into the main playfield on
the right side of the game, and can drain into the bottom trough.
Balls circle the race track via a set of magnets and can circle for
as 10 laps.
MAIN MULTI-BALL ( RACE
To start main Multi-ball (RACE MULTI-BALL ) :
Light all 4 letters in the RACE spellout. To light race letters make lit
R-A-C-E shots. R-A-C-E shots are lit everytime the drop targets are
completed. When RACE is completed the left ramp will light LOCK. Locking
2 balls will light Multi-ball. Make the left ramp shot to start
Starting Multi-ball will light one JACKPOT shot. After making the
Jackpot shot the left ramp will light for BONUS JACKPOT. Making this
shot will re-light jackpot shots, adding one each jackpot cycle. This
shot also lights the drop targets for SUPER JACKPOT. At the same
time the ball that made the Bonus Jackpot shot will re-enter the
racetrack for 10 laps. Anytime a ball is on the racetrack a new higher
jackpot value can be set by hitting the SPIN shot. Making the spin shot
removes the racing ball from the track and multi-ball continues.
Multi-ball continues until only one ball remains on the playfield.
