This teeny-tiny article needs some work. You can help us by expanding it.

Wacky Races is a Sega Dreamcast game based on the TV show of the same name. It was released in 2000, and should not be confused with other Wacky Races games for the NES or computers of the early 1990s.

The game is cell-shaded, and sees the player compete against other drivers from the series around a selection of tracks. Unfortunately, despite there being eleven racers in the show, only eight can compete at one time.

Trivia

A number of developers would eventually work at SUMO Digital to work on Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
