One of the first games I ever owned. Just bought this for $7 and it plays perfect! Anyone else remember this game?

Awesome.  Very cool old school.  I remember that one. 

I remember having a Tomy car racing game that looked similar to this.  It used tapes for the scrolling cars.  I remember mine eventually broke...the tapes no longer moved.  But it was a cool game with a steering wheel and a shifter.  Probably mid 70's or so.

YES!  I loved that game.  I'm sure it drove my parents nuts.  As I recall, it was pretty noisy being mostly mechanical.
