    Since There Is No Nascar Video Game This Year What Features Should They Improve On And What Should They Add? I’m not the biggest Nascar fan in the world but I love playing racing games like Nascar 09, etc, but I’ve noticed I get bored with em rather quickly, ecspecially the career mode. I have a long list of what I’d do’s, would these ideas be a good combination for a great Nascar game?

    -Be abled to sign multi-year contracts with a team

    -Have other real drivers switch teams and/or recruit from the truck and nation wide series. Lets say Denny Hamlin leaves Joe Gibbs for Roush and the number 11 is vacant, either a real driver steps in or a rookie driver is called up.

    -Have a “free agents” list of drivers that aren’t currently active in the cup series but can still drive like Dave Blaney, Terry Labonte, Sterling Marlin, Mike Skinner, Todd Bodine, Scott Wimmer, Joe Nemechek, etc.

    -Also have a legends pool where you can unlock all the old timers like Richard Petty, Cale Yarbourogh, DW, Dale Earnhardt, Dale Jarrett, etc. Even be abled to unlock cars that the current drivers used to drive like Bobby Labonte in the 18, Jeff Burton in the 99, Mark Martin in the 6, etc.

    -If you run out of provisionals you don’t qualify same with the other teams.

    -Have it where real teams change sponsors or paint schemes.

    -Have the career mode last as long as you want where you can retire ten years into your career or thirty.

    -Be abled to own another cup team while driving another car from another team

    -Eliminate the “fantasy drivers” seeing car numbers in the 100’s is annoying.

    -When creating a car or a team you are abled to have a car number in the single and double didgets, like I said, I’ve never seen a Nascar cup team with triple didgets on their roof.

    -Also, I find it stupid that when you purchase a team that your buying Roush racing or Hendrick Motorsports. I feel you should be abled to create your own team and name it whatever you please with up to four or so teams. Also, be abled to hire real drivers to drive your cars like Bobby Labonte or someone then maybe hire Tony Stewart, etc.

    -When racing in a race at Daytona and Talledega have the cars stay in a large pack.

    -Have a leaderboard display the running order in front and behind you at the start finish line so you know who your racing for for position instead of wondering where the next pass for position is while in lap traffic.

    -In career mode have a menu with all you statistics from every race you’ve ever ran during your career. Let’s say it’s 2028 and you want to just look back at where you finished or started in a race in 2012 for example. The menu would consist of starts, finishes, laps, laps lead, and race winner. I think something like that would be really cool.

    Also make winning more challenging but don’t have it where your racing the same guy for the win every week. Make every race different where you run good at Bristol but you run like crap at Daytona. Depending on the money invested in the team you own or the team your under contract with, that will determind where and how good you and your team is.

    -Finally be abled to unlock old schedules with old tracks and races like Rockingham, North Wilksboro, old homestead configuration, old atlanta, etc.

      Back in the day in nascar Thunder 2003 the career mode was great. You started off in a brand new team signed sponsers. You build your own cars and engines. Your teams started out only being able to run top 25 so you couldn’t go out and dominate right a way you had to use stragety to get to the front. The field seperated out like in real life and the computer drivers ran well at the tracks they did in real life. For example Kyle Petty ran great at short tracks. Terry Labonte ran good at the road course, short tracks, and plate races but only ran mid pack at the ovals.

      If your damaged your car you had to repair it and it took money from your budget. So it taught you to drive respectfully because if you beat up your car every week you’d run out of cash and you’d have to start the race with a damaged car which made you off way off the pace. Each year the compition got a little stronger so you had to kept inproving your cars.

      You earn money from sponsors and race winnings. You hire and fire pit crew members, chasis, and engine builders. Pay to research and test your cars.

      The carreer mode lasted 20 years add you could look back at the stats form year to year. It was fun looking at the stats of drivers like Bill Elliott, Ricky Rudd, and Terry Labonte. They had 1500 starts 50 to 80 wins 900 top tens towards the end of the career mode

      They had unlockable legends like Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, Benny Parsons,etc.

      They had the drivers swap around to at the end of each season they took some busch drivers at the time and put them in cup cars replacing drivers like Mike Skinner, Robby Gordon, and Kyle Petty

      I wish they would go back to that format and update it a little maybe allow you to start other teams (teammates) add the top 35 rule so you have to qualify Add the free agents like you were talking about so you can hire Dave Blanney, Mike Skinner, or Terry Labonte(with past champ provisionals to help get your team in the top 35) to for your sencond and third team.

      I like the idea of adding old tracks of course back then the they still raced at rockingham and to old Homestead format they also had the budshootout and the Winston All Star race too. They even had the winston open in carreer mode just incase you weren’t yet in they should add that back as well.They should add those back as well as the old formats for the All Star race. Add The Busch tracks for testing.

      They stoped this format when they added the Busch, truck and freatherlite series Those are good to have but maybe they should create their own game for those series. If they were to do that and made it different we would buy it.

    What Has Happened To Gordon’s Skills? He used to be one of the best, now lets drivers with half his skill and knowledge dominate him weekly. I have already heard all of the lame excuses………crew chief, cot, married with children, too old, doesn’t care anymore, etc. This is not the same driver that has won 4 titles, it is a shell of the driver I used to see dominating. Heck even Dale Sr. drove cars that handled poorly and won with those cars. Its a sad sight to see Gordon now.

    • Curator says:

      First off, he and Jimmie were battling for the championship last year when other teams had already packed it in and started getting ready for this year. They had the tests at Atlanta and wherever else that neither of them went to. They have both been playing catch up this year, on the “downforce” and intermediate type tracks because of that. Jimmie has progressed quicker, probably because Chad Knaus is a better crew chief than Steve Latarte. If you haven’t noticed, the drivers that liked looser race cars are the ones that have adapted to the COT quicker. Jeff is a fairly smooth driver that does not like sliding the back end of the car as much as some of the other guys. He almost seemed to run up front more earlier in the season but something always kept him from getting the win. He will be fine eventually and his driving ability is still there. I don’t think he will be a big threat for this year’s championship but maybe the 4 time champ is just playing possum until it really matters?
