There are five races in the game, two are plot related and unnecessary for this achievement, the other (required) ones are:

- One qualifying race, that is available near the Zone 2 safe house which usually has the initials [Ma] near it; this will become available about half way through the game and you will receive a note, I believe from Skylar, that there is a race organizer you should meet with. Completing this race unlocks the Freeplay Races. It is not extremely difficult, just get as decent a car as possible.

- Two Freeplay races, these appear on the world map as checkered flags
-- Freeplay race one appears after you complete the above qualifying race, it will be located near the extreme South East of the map. This will unlock Skylar's Drake car, which you can use for the next mission.

-- Freeplay race two unlocks after you have completed race one and in my first game I had to proceed till I was near the end of the story. Race two will be located near the North East of the map, with the same checkered flag symbol. This will unlock the Silver Claw.

*** I will double check the timing and car selection, please feel free to contact me or comment with notes/correction. ***

The races aren't too difficult, but if you want to ensure you win the two freeplay races (not the time trial) easily grab a car and drive stopping well short of the yellow circle. Get out and run to the driver side of any of the other racers. Press Y to get in but DO NOT get in the car. Instead press the control stick away from the car. The driver will get out leaving an empty car. Repeat this for every car. When there are no racers left in the other cars, get in one and move it to the yellow circle (some racers cars are already on it so the race will start once you get in). You will be able to race at your leisure against no opponents. On the second race (excluding the time trial), the drivers are more difficult to get to, so take your time to ensure you don't enter any of the cars. Never enter on the passenger side. Also, make sure when you leave the starting line, you do not injure any of the standing drivers because the race will automatically end. After the first lap, the drivers disappear and only the cars are left. Hope this helped.
