In Backgammon Race, all checkers are on the bar at the start of the game.  They must be played onto the board according to the roll of the dice. As in regular backgammon, checkers enter the board in the opponent's home table.

A player may move checkers on the board even while checkers that were originally on the bar remain there; however, checkers that are hit and sent to the bar by the opponent must be played off the bar before any others are moved.

All other rules are the same as regular Backgammon. The doubling cube is not used.
