In Crash Team Racing, when Nitrous Oxide attacked Earth, threatening to turn it into a parking lot, Polar stopped his dream of being a literature genius (which he was not accomplishing by reading his books upside-down!), and decided to race against the villainous alien. Polar is a playable character in his cart. His home track is Polar Pass. His cart handled tight corners,but slow speed,much like Pura. Polar is also known to be the ice cream tester on the 100% ending of Crash Team Racing.
