The Collectibles tab accessed from start button will show you the status of all your Archangels. Look for both symbols to be bright to know you have achieved legendary win time.
There are 15 locations for races ( and 16 races) located on the map at the trophy symbol. The course is marked on sand in red, but look for shortcuts. However, make sure you have plenty of boosts to get over dunes quickly when you do take a shortcut. There are 3 race types; Scatter Run; Time Bomb, and Barrel Bash.
Scatter Run – make your own course, be 1st to finish and under required time. For this race type, use a practice race to look for short cuts, ramps, etc. to shave off time. These were easiest in my opinion. Cars in race tend to leave you alone, but will swerve into you if you pass them slow or they catch up to you. Other cars on roadside or coming toward you (not in race) will try to ram you.
Time Bomb – You have a ticking time bomb that explodes if you don’t make it to finish line 1st and in under required time. You MUST use shortcuts, ramps etc. to make it in required time Cars at start will immediately collide with you. Thunderpoon them at start of race. Cars on roadside or coming toward you (not in race) will chase you and try to ram you. This is the most annoying race – make sure you have plenty of thunderpoons and shoot at distance!
Barrel Bash – This is the only one that you have to hit checkpoints (otherwise you fail). Practice course looking for shortcuts. These won’t be huge detours, just cutting a corner or using a small ramp, but you’ll need them to get required time. Mostly stick to course being sure to thunderpoon all of your opponents at start of race. Typically, no one else bothers you, but barrels can spin you out. So hit them as straight on as possible and boost through them if you have one to spare.
*TheStayonTarget has good advice for when you thunderpoon cars at the beginning of the race, "...go for the second car in front of you (3rd from the front). It'll take out that car AND the one closest to you from the starting line."
