The course starts out on the straight road in Tailfin Pass, and then the racers will drive along a bumpy road, taking a right at the bridge. The next road has two paths; the upper one is trickier to stay on, but is faster, and the lower path is normal at first, but towards the end the heavy sand will begin to weigh the racers down and decrease their speed. At the end, both roads meet and lead into another bumpy path, with a 180-degree turn following. This turn will lead the competitors into a large cave. After a few turns, there is a large jump, followed by a left turn that leads the racers to the exit, and then back to the finish line.
If the player gains enough height while going over the large ramp in the cave, they can land on an alternate path that is easier to drive on, which will take them out of the cave quicker than the normal path.
