Race Car Games

Updated on February 17, 2016

Do You Have The Need For Speed In Your Blood?

Man's need for competition and speed is just one of those unexplained little mysteries of life.

It doesn't matter if you are driving, watching someone else, or simply playing a video game, racing is exciting. So buckle up your seat belt, get your crash test dummy in the drivers seat, and get ready to enjoy a few laps around the track.

Hotwheels practically stole the heart of every young kid when in 1968 they came out with their toy car line up of vehicles. These tiny little toy vehicles came in virtually every style and color that a kid could want and boys and girls from 1 to 101 fell in love with them.

Play it safe

Never participate in illegal street car races.

Satisfy your need for speed out on a race track or on a race car game track.

Warner Bros Kids Free Game Site.

One of my favorite free games sites is the Warner Bros website. They have the most amazing games but just know that on their race games that you are probably going to be racing in a rocket, on skis, or some such other silly stuff in their games because after all this is a cartoon website.

Don't pass this game site by though because you think that it may be too childish for you. You just might be surprised how much you'll enjoy the race games that you discover at the http://www.kidswb.com/games. Be sure to check out the Scoobydoo Graveyard Dash game...it's a blast.

Mario and the crew are just too much race game fun to miss out on.

Race car games are not all bad

Did you know that playing race car games, and other video games as well, will enhance a person's hand eye coordination significantly?

Studies have shown that the average person who plays video games on a regular basis are more aware of their surroundings in everyday activities. People who were old enough to drive, were able to focus more on, not only the road, but the things happening on the sides of the road as well. The drivers who were not "gamers" didn't focus as well in those areas.

In other words, the people who played action video games were able to process visual information a lot better. So the next time your son or daughter asks if they can play a video game, remember what benefits that can actually come from this source of addiction... just monitor the time spent on these video games where fitness is concerned, because even our hand eye coordination needs practice every now and again.

What is your favorite race car game?

      My youngest adult son is a gamer, and loves race games.

      This looks like a great list of games, I'm not a gamer.

      Congratulations on the soon up-coming wedding. :)

      @Lady Lorelei: They do have one race game, kind of, it's called taxi (located in Games App) and you race and jump other cars. You don't race other people though, it's just you against the clock.

      Pogo used to have a Need for Speed race game on their site and I loved it. They have since removed it and no longer have any race car games which kind of reminds me that I was going to contact them and see if they could get one onto their site. Paul looks great in the introduction photo ;)
