Simpsons hit and run races
"Here's how this works: Milhouse, Nelson and Ralph run a series of races around town. Complete all the races and you unlock a new vehicle. Well, what are you waiting for?"
Bart Simpson

Street Races are side missions in The Simpsons: Hit & Run. Milhouse Van Houten, Nelson Muntz, and Ralph Wiggum are the hosts. The trio host the races for Patty and Selma, who appear after the races have been won. The trio are easy to find on the map as they have a pair of racing flags hovering over their heads, and are symbolized on the radar with a the same symbol. If the player wins all the races in a level, they are awarded with a new car.

The player needs to win all the races on each level in order to get a 100% completed on a Level progress screen, but they are not necessary to complete the level.


Milhouse & Ralph's races share the same hard-rock theme.

Nelson's races have a different hard-rock theme, with some snippets from the Simpsons theme song.

  • In Level 7, Milhouse, Nelson and Ralph are all replaced by zombies who still do the same, but as shown in a Level 7 prerelease screenshot, Ralph can be seen standing in front of the school sporting a 2D sprite over his head meaning that Milhouse, Nelson and Ralph were supposed to be the race hosts in Level 7 but were all replaced by zombies due to the Halloween aesthetic of the level.
  • In Levels 4, 5 and 6, the Checkpoint races only seem to have two participants racing as opposed to four participants as seen in the previous three levels. The circuit race in Level 6 also has two participants instead of four. However, in Level 7, there are four participants racing in both the Circuit and Checkpoint races again.
  • Some of the races can be won easily by using the one hit wreck cheat and simply running into the other cars, therefore getting them eliminated.
  • In the beta version, Patty would have congratulated the player after completing all three races and tell the characters to call the Phone Booths to have their new car delivered.
  • In the game files, there exists an unused soundtrack named fe_trans which is a soundtrack that plays three trumpet tracks, these tracks go higher in key, meaning that these soundtracks were possibly meant to be heard after completing Street Races as there are three races and the soundtrack plays three trumpets, but in the final game, there is normally silence when the player completes a street race, but the only sound heard is a faint jingle.
