Racing is already tough and only few tough guys can race, but illegal racing is much tougher since the other guys will deliberately kill you to win. The cars are loaded with weapons and killing isn't illegal. Like any car racing games, the goal is to win the race in first place. You can also win by arriving at the finish line second or third, but that would give you little prize money. At the start of the game, you will be given $3000 so you can buy some upgrades for your car. After that, you need to earn from winning races.
