* Roller derby is a sport that is basically Wacky Racing on Roller Skates. It's a "race" insofar as teams score when their jammer laps the rest of the team, but as a contact sport, sheer speed takes a back seat to knocking the other team around. Skaters are encouraged to take on over-the-top, pro-wrestling-style personas.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Superjail}}'' apparently hosts this on a yearly basis with "Superjail Grand Prix", a violent race with mutliple traps and with a huge body count, where the prision's immates compete with each other to win the great prize of being set free... that is, unless the Warden wins (which, considering he's the one that designs the tracks, he always does).

%%* ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing''.
* ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'' follows on the footsteps of Mario Kart and adds its own twists, like Boss Battles and different vehicles, plus a surprisingly elaborate overworld.
* In ''VideoGame/ZooRace'', animals complete a course containing things like flames coming out of surfaces, explosive barrels, oncoming trains and so on. Oh, and plenty of messages about the love of Christ strewn around.

* A popular 'sport' in ''VideoGame/WorldOfTanks'' is ELC racing, which pits small, fast French light tanks in head to head races around a variety of maps. The challenge is to make it to the end without being shot, getting stuck, or flying off a cliff because you couldn't slow down to make a turn. Sometimes other models of tanks are raced, such as Cromwells or Chaffees.

* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheReluctantWerewolf'' took the exact format of WackyRaces and replaced the normal racers with monsters. The plot centered around Shaggy being turned into a werewolf to participate in the race, because the ''real'' werewolf had retired to Florida.
* "Sugar Rush" from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' is one big candy-coated {{Expy}} of ''VideoGame/MarioKart''.

* ''Film/TheCannonballRun'' (1981), a slapstick comedy starring Burt Reynolds and Creator/DomDeLuise as the most "normal" team in a field of broad ethnic stereotypes. Includes an early US role for JackieChan -- playing a ''Japanese'' driver, with Richard "Film/{{Eegah}}, [[Film/JamesBond Jaws]]" Kiel as his copilot in the sequel.

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' introduces the Payload Race mode. The RED and BLU teams push a cart (Packed with an ammo/health dispenser and a [[BigBulkyBomb massive bomb]]) from their side of the area to the opposing team's base. Whoever gets theirs to the final station wins. Of course, they're free to screw with each other's progress. There's also a map based on the same principal called, you guessed it, wackyraces.

There is also a variation called Balloon Race, which pits the two teams in a zany dirigible race (which tends to end with people exploding, naturally).

** Also from Looney Tunes is ''Hippydrome Tiger'' (1968), where Cool Cat partakes in a cross-country road race in Paris, and his nemesis Colonel Rimfire and his mechanical elephant pursue him throughout the race.

** Actually, this show seemed to love this trope. There's at least five episodes that use this trope.
