Various Cheats and Hints
Enter as player name: Extra Drivers
Enter as player name: Dale Earnhardt
Draft with the car in front of you for awhile. When you just come out of a turn, move over and you should pass him. You can also do this on a straight away, but it works much better coming out of a turn. Also, drafting helps fuel mileage and your speed.
Bud Shoot Out:
On the first lap, go into the pits and take on left side tires only (no gas or repairs). When you leave the pits, cause a caution. After all of the caution laps, there will only be one lap remaining and not enough time for anyone to pit.
Daytona: Easy win:
Make sure the race is set on ten percent race length. Then, cause a crash on lap four. If done correctly, there should be a caution. Go into the pits, and ignore that fact if no one else also enters. You will probably be last, but there will soon be another caution and the leaders will come in. Stay out and do not pit. After the stop, you should be in first or second place. You will run low on gas, but you will not run out. Block and you will be able to win.
Select the Thunder Challenge or Lightning Challenge at the game mode screen. Complete the various challenges to get new Thunder Plates. Note: The Plates are awarded randomly from game to game -- winning a certain track with a particular driver will not unlock the same Plate between games.
Faster donuts on celebration:
When you win a race and start to celebrate, begin to do a donut. When you are spinning, hold the brake and your car will spin even faster.
Tiburon Speedway track:
Go into the Lightning Challenges. Choose the one with Jimmie Johnson (Home Sweet California) and win the race to unlock the Tiburon Speedway and another Thunder Plate.
