    Infinite number of ways to get from start to finish

    20,000 real player submissions merged into one race

    It's kind of hypnotizing to watch. I was going to poke around the video and just watch a couple of samples, but ended up watching the whole thing.

    This is a game where you can custom build giant, insane, custom tracks, which I used to play a LONG time ago. It was about the only racing game I ever got into. The tracks you could build were so crazy that when you made them available for a race, I would literally start cracking up as racers would catch 300 feet of air or whatever.

    Very interesting study in horde behavior too. Some creative drivers actually found ways to finish by driving around the outside of the stadium.
