Seven strangers receive the same vague letter from the president of the United States. When they gather in Washington, D.C., they find out the truth: they were hand selected to represent Earth in the Great Buno Races, an annual intergalactic race held in the Ecilavi galaxy. Led by IndyCar sensation Bradley Smith and former Marine Lindsay Rose, the Earth team will have to learn to adapt to their new surroundings.
