24. Sebulba – Indiana
Indiana’s culture commonly revolves around motorsports. The “Hoosier State” hosts a variety of major motorsport events, most notably, the Indianapolis 500. Even though Star Wars doesn’t have normal types of cars, they do take pride in Podracing. One of the most well-known Podracers, Sebulba, would be a match for Indiana if he ever decided to take a chance on another type of vehicle.
Sebulba was an aggressive Podracer from the planet Malastare. He was from the Dug species and didn’t play too nicely with others during races. Sebulba piloted an orange Podracer equipped with a split-x configuration. He often bumped other racers and put illegal weapons on his Podracer to get some sort of advantage. He was the reigning Podracer champion until he faced his toughest opponent to date – young Anakin Skywalker.
Sebulba and Anakin both entered the Boonta Eve Classic, a major event located in Tatooine. The former champion was a very skilled racer, but his cheating tactics got the best of him. His rivalry with Anakin boiled over during the big race as the two were neck and neck. He proved to be no match for the young human after crashing off into the desert. Despite the crash, he lived to see another day.
