The Cup Selection Menu in Crash Team Racing.

Racing Cups are tournaments in the Crash Racing Series that allow players to participate in a series of four races with an accumulating score for each race. At the end of the tournament, the racer with the highest score gets crowned the winner.


Racing Cups have appeared in every racing game except Crash Tag Team Racing.
