Wrench’s Fact- What’s your Racing Style?

Whether you realize it or not, each racer has their own style when it comes to winning a race. As you’ll see, each of these racing styles has their own weaknesses and strengths. However, you will often find that the racers who consistently finish near the top have chosen a style that fits their personality and then, through hard work and perseverance, perfected it by minimizing its weaknesses and maximizing its strengths.

Run and Gun

Run and Gun racers provide some of the most interesting races on the tracks. Their primary goal each race is to stay in the thick of the action by constantly shooting their opponents and staying with the pack. These racers live for thrill of dusting their opponents and gradually pulling ahead after devastating their opponents. To hang with this crowd, you must be one tough cookie!

Lead Driver

Lead Drivers are their own special breed. This select group solely relies on speed and handling. Rather than collecting ammo, they focus on amassing as much nitro as they can in order to gain a large lead. These racers are unconcerned with their opponents and ignore retaliation because they are so intent on achieving maximum speed and working their way to a massive lead. However, lead drivers tend to struggle and lose close races if they can’t establish a big lead.

Support

Support drivers are by far the rarest type found on the race track. Support drivers usually work as a team with a lead driver or two and focus on helping them win the race. Rather than seeking glory for themselves, Support drivers use their weapons and cunning to slow down other racers allowing their teammates focus on building a substantial lead. These team players are not concerned with earning the top podium spot for themselves but rather seek to better their team as a whole.

The Late Bloomer

Late Bloomers are all about high risk and high reward. Easily the source of the most exciting finishes, Late Bloomers focus on establishing their lead as late as possible. These racers stay in the middle of the pack for most of the race, but unlike Run and Gun racers, they keep a low profile. Because they are often overlooked and typically don’t surface as a threat until late in the race, Late Bloomers lull their opponents into a false sense of security. However, during the last half lap or so, these drivers spring into action and do whatever it takes to eek out a win.

Now that you know a little bit more about these different racing styles, be sure to head out to the track and try them out. Once you find a style that suits your personality best, make sure to practice it and build your car in a way that can maximize its strengths.
