The top 26 (because of the 3-way tie for 24th place) are in The Race.
The Race is a 3-Lap video broadcast of those 26 racers each getting a turn to roll a die, which has blue sides and red sides. Red sides are bad events, blue are good. You roll a blue side, you draw a card from the Good Event pile. That event will consist of some action and a point modifier, for example: "dodge a stalagmite: +5 pts" These points will recalculate and change the positions of those 26 racers, and after all 26 have had an event drawn, the lowest 14 will be axed from the race. Lap 2 will feature the remaining 12 racers rolling the die again, and Lap 3 will be the final 6 racers battling it out in the same process. The racer with the most points at the end of Lap 3 is the Race Winner.
There are no more polls. There is only The Race.
