I'm also trying to figure out a way to integrate a story line where the tire race could wipe the midi-chlorians out of existence, like totally, from the the entirety of the multiverse space-time continuum, so they will never have existed and never be spoken of again.
And then at the end, I could have the car they are in run over Jar Jar Binks.

I know this might seem like topic drift, but it's not. Those Star Wars elements most definitely suck and blow.
Maybe there is a distortion in their space/time caused by the car making a y turn and it causes an unwinding of their reality which then rewinds into a new pattern at the end of the turn.

Don't mention balancing to the Radalians! They're just as fractious over static VS spin balancing as they are over tire VS tyre.

I think these people would be highly intelligent, and though they might have had a strongly emotional history they would now be strictly logical. I also think that they probably have pointy ears.

I see what you did there.

Maybe it could be more of a fantasy story, where their military uses magic talismans to bring good fortune.
For example, if a general has a fire stone it means a good year.

And if the Radalian General Bobby Frank has a good year he might get good and rich.

Sooo many tire company puns could be in the story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tire_companies

Yep, I guess we'll just have to be bearing the tired cliche's.

Perhaps one of the groups of 'beings' could be the order of the steel belt. Sort of a quasi religious order that tries to keep some sort of order in their society.
