Racing is not your average type of sports as you can lose your life if you are not careful and fit enough to play the game. There are times that luck also plays a valuable addition if you are going to win the race or get an accident. No one can predict the outcome and that is why, you need not to be only fit, but your car needs to be upgraded most of the time.
Drive your car as fast as you can till you finish the race. Try not to hit anything since that will slow you down. Wait till the Nitro is full and use it to get ahead of your competitors. You need to get to the twelve spot to qualify for the next level.
