Start Your Engines – March Mayhem IV: Sparky Races Begins!

March Mayhem IV: Sparky Races begins now! It’s a demolition derby death race with 32 teams from across time and the multiverse, in elimination duel format. Only one team will cross the final finish line! Vote to decide the fates of our competitors! Predict the winners to win a Titans Return Trypticon! Submit your bracket predictions by Friday!

Sparky races pits Ultra Magnus, driven by Verity Carlo, against Optimal Optimus accompanied by the spark of Optimus Prime; the Savage Land’s Ka-Zar riding TM2 Cheetor, beating feet against Apeface piloted by Optimus Minor; Sunstreaker and Chip Chase facing off against Cogman and Cade Yeager. No timeline is safe! But only one team goes home with the cup – or at all!
