Dragon Track. Races Unlike the Colosseum, you can access this event as many times as you want a day.

Dragon Track

However, it will cost you 50,000 dragoncash each time you participate. There are both common and uncommon elements to the tracks. The common elements are the ones that appear the most, while uncommon elements have an extra element added into the particular track. If your dragon's elements match the track, it will run or fly faster in those areas. If you do not own a recommended dragon, use one with at least two elements that match the track (for example the Love Dragon, or the Tree Dragon for Cherry Road). Rewards Rewards are given for first, second and third place winners. The reward can consist of gems, experience, dragoncash, or treats, or a combination of these. If the Perch of Kairos is under construction, the reward may instead be a randomly selected artifact. As of June 27, 2013, the reward process was redesigned to introduce a "Treasure Chest" upon successful completion of a race.
