Ebeneezer Von Clutch is the deranged genius cyborg owner of the auto-racing theme park "Von Clutch's MotorWorld". The park's tracks have wreaked terror on its participants in ways too gruesome to describe on television. But the Power Gems keeping the park up and running have been stolen, along with Von Clutch's Black Power Gem, which has kept Von Clutch alive. Von Clutch is willing to give away his park ownership to whoever recovers the park's missing Power Gems. Crash, Coco, Crunch, Neo Cortex, N. Gin, and Nina Cortex agree to help gather the Power Gems and find the thief alongside professional racer Pasadena O'Possum and Von Clutch himself. The race for the park's ownership is on.
