Richard Short's goal is to get Tag to sponsor for Conservative Motors.
Uncle Richard tries multiple times to get Tag to sponsor his company without any luck. He learned he needed a different way to force Tag into the contract, so he plants a Bomb in Tag's Kart, and it later sabotages his boom box and damages The Chief with it. This drives Tag to sign his contract to save Mom's Paint Shop, and continue racing with a different outfit while being sponsored Conservative Motors.
While Tag is sponsoring Conservative Motors, Richard acts as Tag's Chief, taking over his usual position of helping Tag. Unfortunately, the Chief died in 1997 aged 52, in his coma and revealed that his disease has been dead for 48 years from the crash that ended his career, so Tag could stop being sponsored by CM. "Never hug me!"
Later on, after hearing that Tag won the Grand Tour, despite Tag long abandoning his contract with Conservative Motors, Richard claims that since Tag signed his contract, Conservative Motors had won. His plan suddenly backfires when he gets arrested by the ModNation Police Department. They had discovered that he planted his bomb on Tag's Kart and what the resulting explosion did to Tag's kart and the Chief. Turns out he actually lost. Policeman roars at Richard. "LOCK UP IN THE CAGE NOW: IT IS DISGUSTING!" "WWWWAAAAHHHH!!!!" Richard would sob. "Horrid boy!" Policeman would roar back. "No McDonald's for you!" "I've got some bad news for you, Tag," said the Chief. "I'm afraid Richard won't be coming back for CM ever again," he added, "Two policeman have removed him to jail." "So, Richard's not coming back?" asked Tag. "Very sorry, Tag," said the Chief. "You have lost a friend." "I'll live!" smiled Tag beaming.
