Death Race Firecracker is a grand prix galactic racing event held in the Extreme Galaxy. Hundreds of criminals from around the galaxy partake in this event hoping to win a large cash prize and the title of fastest in the galaxy. In actuality, the race is a means for the Greed Corps to win new recruits into their operations. The race laps around the most treacherous environments in the Extreme Galaxy and is divided into three areas: "a zone of volcanic death", where one racer, Galom, is killed, an asteroid belt (which is actually a minefield) and a grand canyon.
The five-time winner and most popular racer is Rockets. Samus spots him on a poster holding the Data Capsule containing her stolen Speed Booster ability. This reveals that he is one of Greed's Deadly Six Stars. Samus enters the race as "Aran DJ" with her Joey and Diesel and kills Rockets during the race. Samus is proclaimed the new champion.
