The Legacy Music Hour: Racing Games 2

Brent and Rob take their second lap on the topic of Racing Games.  This time, they make a conscious effort to not play anything from Super Mario Kart, Road Rash, and F-Zero, and instead, explore lesser known games such as Final Lap Twin, Al Unser J. Turbo Racing, and GP-1.  Buckle your seat belts, start your engines, enjoy the episode, and they’ll see you at the finish line, right here, on the Legacy Music Hour.  NOTE: Regarding the end of the episode, that’s not a fart.  Full track listing below.
