Description

Race as fast as you can and win money! A former policeman won the lottery and decided to hold races to give away some of the winnings... Featuring seven different American tracks (each with surprises!), and nine different vehicles, with more vehicles available from the official website. All the vehicles are upgradable and features visible damage that affects the car's handling. Use Nitro to get a quick boost, and stay clear of the cops!
