The Legend of the C-Town Racers

There is a saying that goes: When racing in the C-Town Circuit, never, ever race against a local. You will lose the lead as fast as you will lose your money. The most dreaded drivers on the streets today all hail from the C-Town.

Some say the C-Town drivers have superior skills behind the steering wheel. Almost as if they can control their cars with their thoughts alone.

But truth is, the C-Town racers are not better drivers.

They just have faster cars.

Their engines have at least a hundred horsepower-advantage over the other ordinary stock engines.

That's because in the ninth month of the ninth year of the second millenium, a great deluge destroyed and drowned the entire C-Town. No cars were spared in that tragedy. Entire engines went underwater.

Thus, all the C-Town cars had their engines overhauled, with some slight modifications from the master mechanics.

And that is why, in a street race, a C-Town Racer will always finish first, and will always leave you behind, blinded by a cloud of dust.
