Top 47* ordered by votes (* there was a six way tie for 42nd place so there are five extra beyond the 42 planned):
Hiding their numbers: A band of Tusken Raiders starts to shoot at your podracer. You swerve to avoid, losing precious time. -4 points
Chuck Norris - One does not pass Chuck Norris on the Pod Racing track. One sits there and waits for him to move past and likes it. (-25 Points)
What are the odds? - Your attempts to smash an opponent into a wall backfire when he slips by your attack. You hit the wall, eat his dust, and the ladies watching on the sideline all point and laugh. -5 points, +5 points for the pod directly behind you
I've got a bad feeling about this - Race officials penalize you 15 seconds for using a line that wasn't that good in the first place, dropping you a spot (-15 Points)
SAND: You don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Including your undies. You pull your racer over to the side to clean off. -12 points
Kreop: Kre-O Optimus Prime fell apart on the course in front of you! -30 points
Those were some bad tacos - Last night's lunch has you taking an emergency pit stop. -20 seconds
I'm afraid I can't let you do that Dave: the support AI in your pod decides it can pilot better than you and takes over the controls. -9 points
Oota Goota: You plow right into a giant pile of Bantha poodoo. That's disgusting. -7 points
Door Prize! - Coming out of a hairpin turn, you clip a "Leave our Tatooine Nice and Not Green" protester, eliciting a cheer from the crowd but slowing you down (-5 Points, +3 Cheers, baby)
Blew a fuse - Your overzealous use of the flux-capacitating-gravometric-whirrly-doodle-booster leaves your left engine overheated, slowing you down until it cools off (-3 Points)
Waaaaaay too complicated - Your attempts at such a fancy steering rig, with seven-hundred individually-labeled switches, has backfired on you when you zigged instead of zagging. (-5 Points)
He Who Cannot Be Named - Someone said a name, forcing you to slow down and smite an invisible enemy before continuing on. Do not pass go, do not collect $200 (-3 Points)
There are some who call me... Tim? A crazy old wizard in the hills around the pod race takes a few lightning bolt pot shots at the course. It's no match for the fancy blaster at your side, but it still sets you back -10 points.
Your Pod is now Diamonds: you've somehow ended up in an Old Spice commercial, and while you smell fantastic you're out of the race.
A Christmas Carol: Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg. The Batmobile lost a wheel and Joker got away, but not before running your podracer into a rock formation. Hahahahahaha! -3 points
Believing you had the secret Krabby Patty recipe, Plankton has rigged your podracer to change course directly towards the Chum Bucket. -1 point
SUPER GUNGAN MEGA LUCK (I feel the need to include this as both good and bad) - Turns out your Gungan friend ate the control rod that held your left steering pylon in place because it sort of looked like a taco. You can fix it, but it'll take a while. (-20 Points)
What is a Nerfherder Anyway? - You had to swerve to avoid hitting a group of kids crossing the lane. Sure, it makes no sense that kids would be on a racing track in the middle of the desert, but really, think about what you're doing. That's right. (-2 Points)
Shell Shocked - A well-timed "bump" has you evading. You didn't lose any time, but that guy behind you certainly got a boost. +5 points for the pod directly behind you.
Never Trust the Tentacles: Doc Ock convinced you to let him power your pod with his fusion experiments, and one of your engines just imploded. Great. -38 points
Leap of Faith: Rather than slowing to look for a safer way to cross a chasm you gunned it and hoped for the best. You choose... poorly... and nearly fall to your doom. -25 points
Why'd it have to be snakes?: That loose cable at your feet isn't a cable at all! As you flail in terror you forget all about steering and run off course. -18 points
Second Life (Roll again) - Zombies! Blue side: it's fast zombies, and you lose 15 points trying to dodge them and avoid getting pulled into a Resident Evil sequel. Red side: they're slow zombies, which are easily mowed down by your pod, however, that extra weight and drag cost you 20 points to clean it off
Five Dolla Foot Looooooooong: You get that annoying song stuck in your head and can't concentrate. -5 points
Zombies: Jack Sparrow, chased by a horde of zombie pirates, hijacks your podracer and heads off in search of the Fountain of Youth. Good luck with that on this planet, Cap'n Jack! -8 points
There appears to be large honey slicks all over the course. While leaning over to investigate, you fall out of your pod right into the sticky mess. POOOOOOH!!!! - 5 points
Magnets, How do they work? - The laws of physics temporarily caught your pod racer, and render it unable to move because the cables would break. The laws wander off eventually to attack a Trekkie, but not before you slipped back a couple of spots. (-10 Points)
Goodness, Gracious, Great Engines on Fire! - You pushed the boosters a bit too far, and have to take it slow while they cool off. -5 points.
Portal: You try opening some portals to advance to the head of the pack but instead you find yourself in last place. Switch points with the podracer in last place.
Who put that in there? Coming out of a turn, a loose wrench, left there by a pit droid, no doubt, flies up and clangs you in the head. You get your bearings, but not before dropping back 5 points.
Mystery Button: You don't remember seeing *that* one on your controls before, it must do something cool right? FWOOSH! It's only after you're sailing back to the desert floor that you remember requesting that ejection seat. -all points, out of the race
Call it a Night - You thought it was a tunnel shortcut, and it seems like a good idea until you realized that you don't exactly have headlights on this thing. You have to feel your way around to get out. -40 points.
Holy Deviation, Batman: The Riddler left a clue to his latest caper on the race course. You pick it up and head off-course to deliver the news to Batman. -8 points
One Arm Bandit: Ponda Baba's dismembered arm gives you a Wet Willy, then beats you in a Thumb War. -15 points
Mr Freeze is on Tatooine for summer vacation, and found it *much* too hot for his liking. Now he's freezing everything in sight, including your podracer as you pass by. -6 points
This time, it's personal - That jerk you just passed decided to make this personal, and jumped beside you, forcing you to grind into a wall and lose precious time. (-5 Points)
Negative Ghost Rider, Pattern if Full - The pack in front of you is cutting you off from joining or passing, forcing you to back off and bide your time. (-10 Points)
What a piece of junk - Next time, buy your stabilizers from a store, and not from the back of a shady looking van. You bypassed them, but it took you a bit. -3 Points.
Podicus Gofasticus: You just remembered the spell Hermione taught you to boost your engine output... but you mess it up and it backfires. Way to go. -9 points
Deja vu: You feel like you've been here before, and know just what's around the next bend! Except you're wrong... and end up careening into a boulder the size of a Bantha. -40 points
You TwitFace - Your new phone distracts you with youtube videos, incoming tweets, and facebook status updates. -15 points
Not So Happy Meal: why you thought stopping by the drive through during the race was a good idea is anyone's guess. What's worse, they shorted you on your chicken nuggets! -20 points
Trunk Monkey: Speed Racer's friend ChimChim stowed away in in your pod and has been pulling out random parts that are fouling up your controls. -13 points
Cheap Knockoff: in an effort to save some cash you decided to build your racer with low quality off-brand parts, and it's now falling apart piece by piece. -18 points
Hey, watch this! A bit of showboating for the ladies on the sideline backfires when you're almost knocked clear of your pod. You just manage to stay in there, but have to slow down to get back in. -15 points.
You've been doing too much overtime at work. Your concentration falters, and in that split second lapse you smash into a stalagmite. Out of the race
