The Race Track (previously known as the Torn City Raceway) is accessible via the 'Red-Light' area of the City. It was added on 1 March 2007. 
A Car and a Racing License are required before players can use the Race Track. The Racing License can be purchased at the Points Building for 50 points.
There is no fee to take part in official races. Players will automatically be paired with five other racers in the same racing class. Official races will take 1 hour to be prepared, and will finish once all participants have crossed the finish line.
After leaving an official race, there is a 15 minute penalty time before you can join another official race.
Players can create custom racing event. While no racing points are earned in custom events, players will earn driver skill. Unlike official races there is no waiting period to join or create a new custom race after leaving one. An entry fee can be added, with winnings going to the top three finishers.
The following options need to be selected to start a custom race:
- Race name.
- Drivers required. (Max 6)
- Maximum drivers. (Max 100)
- Number of Laps. (Max 100)
- Cars Allowed. Restrict entries to a certain class, or a single car.
- Upgrades Allowed. Choose to allow upgrades, or stock cars only.
- Bet Amount (Max $10,000,000). Choose to bet on the race with the winnings going to the top 3 finishers.
- Wait time in minutes before the race starts (Max 2880)
- Password (optional).
- A custom race with only one player will time out and be deleted one hour after the wait time ends.
- If a player leaves a custom race or the race times out after paying a bet, the bet will be refunded in the form of a cashiers check at the bank.
Players start in Class E, and will advance through classes by earning Racing Points from placing top three in official races.
3 Racing Points for finishing in 1st place. 2 Racing Points for finishing in 2nd place. 1 Racing Point for finishing in 3rd place.

|Class E||0 Racing Points earned|
|Class D||25 Racing Points earned|
|Class C||100 Racing Points earned|

If a player spends or loses points in a crash, the points will still count towards ranking up. Racing Points obtained through Company specials do not count towards ranking up a class; only points earned from Racing count.

Naming a Car
Players can give enlisted cars a unique name to make them more easily identifiable. This can be done by selecting the small pencil icon next to each enlisted car, typing the desired name into the edit box, and clicking on "save".

- Players cannot enlist a car that is in a class higher than their class rating, but can use cars below their current class.

Ultimate Racing Tournament
Twice a year, the Ultimate Racing Tournament (URT) is held to test players' racing skill and luck, with the winner receiving a Bugatti Veyron and Gold Racing Trophy.
Racing was originally limited to two tracks. The "Drag" course was for one-on-one races that lasted 15 minutes. The "Round Track" course was for challenging four other racers and lasted 5 minutes.
