Mario and his friends have come to Racing Kingdom, where they are planning to have a day of fun. However, as soon as they arrive, Bowser and his minions take over the 8 areas of the racing kingdom. Each area is one of the 8 cups that you must beat. After you beat the cup, you must battle the boss of that area in a Bob-omb Blast.
The boss depends on the area that you are racing in. This chart will tell you all the bosses.

|Special Area||Bowser Jr.|
|Shell Area||Koopa Paratroopa|
|Banana Area||King Boo|
No matter what order you do the areas in, you must always do the Special Cup second to last, and the Lightning Cup last.
All of the areas will be played in 100cc
After you beat Bowser, he takes out a machine called the MegaMirror2000, and uses it to make the areas Mirror Mode. You must then beat all the areas again, except in Mirror Mode. Once again, you must do Lightning Cup last and Special second to last, but the bosses are a bit different.
|Mushroom Area||Dry Bones|
|Flower Area||Hammer Bro|
|Special Area||Dry Bowser|
|Shell Area||Petey Pranha|
|Banana Area||King Boo|
|Leaf Area||Bowser Jr.|
Once you beat Bowser for the second time, you have beaten story mode, and you have unlocked Kamek and you unlock a minigame and the only way to beat story mode, Fiery Fortress.
