Recommended Car[edit]

Just choose one of the Nascar Cars from Chevrolet, Ford, or Toyota.

For the Daytona Race switch off *EVERYTHING*, even the ABS, maintain a line with the right wheel slightly to the right of the guide line. If one car tries to overtake you, get in front of it so it "bumps" you ahead. If two cars are trying to overtake you in the inside, "bump" the one in the inside.

Car Maintenance

Do an oil change before the series, and engine rebuild if necessary, to ensure max engine performance.

Tyres

No limits on A-Spec, but I went with Racing Hard, as other compounds overheated too quickly. B-Spec is Hard Racing only.
