Help me remember a game?

Step into the way-back machine to circa mid-90's. There was a computer game I loved to play. I have been trying to remember its name, but I cannot. Here's what I do remember...

It was a racing game, but more like a tunnel-racer. You raced futuristic vehicles along in a straight-ish path and avoid obstacles as you try to make it to the finish line before your opponents. In between the races there were pixar-esque animations of fake humorous commercials.

An oddball part... the graphics must be set in 256 color mode to play.

Any ideas?

I'll walk through that list shortly.

I believe it was an official game. It came on a cd-rom iirc. I had not seen it on another system, so I assume it was exclusive to PC. It was not a 'classic game' at its time

Unfortunately it's none of the aforementioned.

It was more futuristic that megarace, the animations were cartoony, and the races were basically set up as tunnel-races for most segments.

I believe the vehicles hovered, and i know that the tracks were mostly in the vein of f-zero (if f-zero was a tunnel racer.)

Any chance it was a game called "rollcage"?
