Welcome to our 125th Squad Challenge, the 2022 Pole Position II Grand Prix! This will be our 5th Annual Pole Position II Grand Prix Event! This year's Grand Prix challenge will run until June 14th, 2022 racing the FUJI Track for your best possible score! Fuji is THE CLASSIC TRACK in all of Pole Position! It's a tough slog to the finish line, but with a bit of practice and some tenacity, most of you will make it to the end! Strap in, rev your engines, and give it your best shot! Even if you don't finish the game, post your highest score and show off your accomplishment! Pole Position is one of the most iconic arcade games released by Atari and was genre-defining for its time, setting a new standard of what racing gameplay could be like. Pole Position II was included as the pack-in title for the Atari 7800 and is often revered as the first game 7800 owners played on their new game system. For many of us 7800 gamers, Pole Position II was the first video game we ever owned! I have so many wonderful memories of playing Pole Position II at Chuck E. Cheese's with my family, shifting gears and whipping around corners with a cheese stick in my hand and a cup of root beer on the floor under my feet. It also became one of my favorite games to play at home and remains a wonderful memory on the Atari 7800. ROM and Instruction Manual are provided below. Good luck to our Racers!

I just tweeted and shared the image at the top (citing the source) so I hope it helps draw a few more drivers to the Squad Challenge. I'll also mention it on next week's show; a friend shared a good idea with regards to sharing scoring challenge updates.


I've been sneaking some gaming on Antstream & I need to give The Empire Strikes Back another go for the EverythingC64 challenge, but I'll definitely hit the track for this one.
