Notes:

  • In the Piston Cup Races, the first four opponent cars on the list will always come in the top five, if Lightning comes first. However the opponent cars may not always finish in the same order listed above.
  • In Rustbucket Race-O-Rama, the racers are prone to crashes. Because of this, the order the opponents finish is usually random.
  • In Monster Truck Mayhem, the racers are prone to crashes. Because of this, the order the opponents finish is sometimes random.
