Race organizers said the event will come to Cincinnati and Columbus in early 2019. It features a customized, themed track and “awesome” prizes.

Tickets for the event are limited and only 600 people in each city will be selected for a chance to race.

One winner from each city will be flown to Las Vegas for a grand finale and a chance to win it all.

Don’t worry about any banana peels or turtle shells, this will be timed racing only.
