Wacky Races was a Hanna-Barbera cartoon series that ran from 1968 to 1970 (and is constantly shown in repeats).

In each episode, various wacky characters with equally wacky cars competed in a daring cross-country race. The competitors:

Despite the presence of two obvious 'hero' type characters, Penelope Pitstop and Peter Perfect, the show never really focused one one character, and you could never be sure who would win the race each episode. The footage would cut frequently from one character to another, with the commentator giving continual updates on the progress of each car.

If anything, Dastardly and Muttley were the true stars of the show. Every episode they would conspire to cheat their way to victory, but they never succeeded.
