As an added bonus, since you guys likes this one so damn much, I will be starting a new race around the same time. If you like, I will create a strange, weird, odd ball race every time the desire takes me.
Some races I’ve already lined up include:
The 3rd World Rally Challenge,
The Soccerball Run,
Grandma’s Sunday Afternoon,
The Russian Invasion Contract,
And The Family Christmas Holiday.
