====================================================================
---------------------------1. Introduction--------------------------
====================================================================

A food-service robot gone bad has developed a diabolical plan to take over
the world using "racing energy" found only within the top racers of the
world. To gather such a group of racers he has staged a fake tournament
with a large cash prize…which he doesn't have... But he has the next best
thing. The winner will receive 10,000 donuts, 10,000 cookies, 10,000
cheeseburgers, and to top it all off, a large cake. (Being a food service
robot does have its perks.) This unbelievable prize has lured the wacky
racers (strange people who race for food) to all come together for a crazy,
adrenaline pumping race. (Most won't admit it, but it was the cake that
convinced them to come.)
