We derive a formula for the density of positive integers satisfying a certain system of inequality, often referred as prime number races, in the case of the polynomial rings over finite fields. This is a function field analog of the work of Feuerverger and Martin, who established such formula in the number field case, building up on the fundamental work of Rubinstein and Sarnak.
