2008 Game

Two alliances, composed of three teams compete in each match. Teams drive around a track with a large track ball. A robot would score points for making counter-clockwise laps around the track while herding the track ball. Robots also score points for putting the track ball over the overpass. Bonus points could be scored by replacing the track ball on the rack on the end of the match.
