Destroying a car : 200, 300 or 500 points, depending on car.
End of stage bonus : 200 + 100 points/level x number of cars destroyed.
Special Bonus : 50000 points for destroying no cars.
* Bonus Points : if you make it through an entire board without smashing any cars, you'll get a 50000 point bonus.
* You can jump off the edge of the screen and land on the other side. Use this tactic to escape from a tight spot, but only when the track is widest.
* Try not to get caught between three cars, as when you bump one into a wall, chances are the impact will bounce you back into the wall.
