It is flat, like normal tracks, but has green arrows pointing in the direction that the player will go if landed on. When touched, a sliding sound will be heard. The sound will also be heard when another racer touches the speed track.
As the name suggests, speed tracks increase the racer's speed. If the player holds the key of the direction of the arrows, he will go at a much increased pace. After leaving speed tracks, the player's speed will slowly decrease to normal. It can be both a help and a hazard, as sometimes they will send the player flying into a pink laser.
