Wow! Two years? Really?
Let me tell you the secret to the success of the MNR franchise … it’s you, the ModNation community that keep the games strong. The numbers speak for themselves… you’ve hosted millions upon millions of great races and as of today you’ve created 629,972 Tracks, 1,331,405 Mods and 1,221,817 Karts for a total of 3,182,817 creations!
It’s not just the remarkable numbers that stand out, it’s the genuinely nice, friendly, encouraging, and yet competitive members of the community that make this game like no other. Thank you to each and every person that has played ModNation Racers for the PS3, PSP or Vita. We are honored that you enjoy this game as much as we do!

Most Clever or Funniest Track Name?
Sometimes I just don’t know how players come up with their hilarious track names. Some cute, some insane, some more insane and some are simply insanely creative. I can attest to experiencing at least four spits takes and two milk-through-the-nose blurts, and one memorable “trip to the cleaners” in my time as community manager.
We want to know…
- Favorite / funniest / most clever user-created TRACK name?
- Favorite / funniest / most clever user-created MOD OR KART name?
We will post a collection of our favorites here in a few weeks.

With over 500,000 user-generated tracks to choose from we set the players to work to narrow the list down to ten. What were we thinking when we began this endeavor? Well, the ModNation community has narrowed it down to 25 and now we need your help to vote for the top ten!

Dude created a skatepark!
This is a very fast and fun race and, to my amazement, punishthem420 has replicated a real-life genuine skate park to a tee! Grind rails, ramp angles, box spacing and even banner placement felt so real I couldn’t believe it. It’s not pretty like many other tracks this week but the detail and “nailing” of the whole park (pool, parking lot, etc..) have to be rewarded.
Mark: punishthem420 – build that park for real in sunny San Diego and you’ll be a rich man!
