The Antarctic Car Racing Challenge or ACRC is a massive car race that stretches all over the Antarctic continent. It is an extremely dangerous race that only the best dare to compete in.
The race was founded in 1990 by Dupply Ford. Dupply Ford was a retired racer who craved for the biggest, most challenging races. So he founded the Antarctic Car Racing Challenge in 1990 and challenged racers to compete.
20 racers competed in the first race, their race cars are now in the ACRC Museum. Dupply Ford found that his company wasn't making enough money to keep the race going. So he started to advertise products during the race, charging companies to put up posters and billboards on the track. This wasn't enough, so he decided to start a TV show called Ford's Crazy Racing. He charged companies to broadcast commercials during the show.
This allowed Dupply Ford to hire more engineers to design the racetrack. The company grew in popularity, as more and more penguins begin to watch the TV channel and pay to go to races.
Suddenly during the 2001 competition, a driver shot a competitor that was in front of him. The victim lost a lot of blood, barely surviving. Dupply Ford's race began attracting a lot of bad media, driving away his audience. To make matters worse, the victim sued his attacker and the ACRC organization. Despite their best efforts, none of the lawyers Dupply Ford hired were able to convince the judge. Dupply paid out thousands in damages. It looked like it would be the end of the ACRC.
In order to regain money, Dupply started a second, smaller business selling pastries. He also took out loans from various banks. Combining the profit from the pastry business and the borrowed money, he hired engineers to design special nonlethal, harmless weapons that drivers could use against their opponents without the risk of death. Dupply figured that this would appeal to viewers.
In 2005, the ACRC began holding races again. Dupply's weapons made the competition popular with younger audiences. Many fans were buying tickets, watching the TV channel, and buying souvenirs.

The course is divided into multiple legs, which are each completed over the course of two days. The entire race takes about two weeks. The first leg begins at South Pole City. Later legs wind their way through Trans-Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula. The final leg takes place in Club Penguin, and consists of ten laps around one of the R servers.
During the race, racers must jump massive gaps, maneuver through obstacles, and make sharp turns.
The ACRC company hires some of the best engineers in the continent to build race cars and other machines.
Each year the cars get faster, safer, and more sophisticated. In recent years, Dupply has begun to work less on the cars and more on advertising, hoping to fully recover the company from its debt.
Despite strict regulations, racers often utilize weapons against their opponents to hinder or eliminate them.
- Spike Wheels- Used to ram against someone's wheels and ruin them. Also ruins paint jobs and leaves massive massive scratches on cars. These have become illegal to use while racing.
- Glue Blaster- Use to blast wheels and slow down car. This weapon has an unsettling record of causing car crashes. It can also be used to blind drivers.
- Spike Balls- Shot from underneath a car to another car to pop the wheels. It often completely destroys race cars.
- Flame Thrower- This sets fire to opponent cars, possibly causing them to explode. The weapon is forbidden in the race. After a controversial incident in the 2006 race, the ACRC is quick to disqualify and prosecute any racer who dares to use the weapon.
- Oil Pour- Used to slick the road for opponents. This is another major cause of car crashes. If set on fire, it poses a dangerous hazard.
Advertising became a big deal in the ACRC after their 2001 lawsuit. The ACRC is filled with commercials, posters and billboards, and special merchandise.
The Antarctic Wide Race has its own TV show called Dupply's Crazy Racing. The channel is where all penguins can watch the race, other races, history of racers, and more. It is also the leading source of money to the ACRC.
Banners and Signs
Since the lawsuit, banners and signs advertising products have been hung near the race track. All racers must advertise products on their vehicles. ACRC normally receives at least 10% of the sponsor companies' profits.
Some common sponsor products/businesses are energy drinks, tires, record companies, and restaurants.
Merchandise is popular among younger fans. It includes hats, foam flippers, toy cars, T-shirts, action figures, and reusable cups. Merchandise has helped the company get out of its debt quickly, as it is sold all over the continent.
The ACRC has one logo so far, but the company is currently thinking about updating the logo.
