First, you can play the Sprint Cup tournament where you rack up points by leading laps and placing high in the finishing order.
Or you can pick one of the 27 tracks available and just have one race. There are three types of races in this mode: the standard Single Race where you try to finish first, the Eliminator where you have to avoid being in last place when the timer runs out or you can just practice driving on that track. Multiplayer is available for the Single Player and Eliminator races.
And I like the drafting feature this game has - driving strategically is vital to getting first place. The best way to play the game is with the Wiimote/Nunchuck combo - the tilting mechanism of the Wiimote alone doesn’t work well here.
So far, so good right? Not so fast. This game’s got severe limitations on what you can do.
First off, there’s no online mode, so you’ll have to race with your friends split screen. Oh wait - you can only race one friend split screen (instead of the 3 that’s the norm for racers).
You can only get one viewpoint of the race - from behind the car. You do not get the bumper cam or the view from the driver’s seat.
The cars are not adjustable in any way except for the paint; you can’t adjust the engine, the suspension, tires, or gas tank. They want us to pay $50 for this?
And a major problem I had with the game is the AI does NOT pit at any point during the race. I had a one half a lap lead, but had to pit for gas and tires - and when I got out of the pit, I was placed all the way in last place.
NASCAR 2011 has some great ideas, but those limitations really hurt those selling points. SKIP IT.

Thanks to the wii controller, when pressing the break button or the throttle button, it is either all or nothing, there is no in between, so keeping throttle control and abs assist options on is a must. The opponents cars will not pit on caution flags, so to keep things fair, if I had to pit under caution, I would then pit the next green flag lap or else I would end up a lap ahead when the opponents did pit.
Wrecks in this game are so bad, that I dont know where to begin. In the middle of a wreck you might have a car do a complete 90 degree turn and shoot into the inside or outside walls, then face the right way and take off. At other times you might barely bump a car and it slams on its brakes and stops in the middle of the track, this happens a lot on pit road with the AI cars and brings out a lot of cautions.
You can not change your setup before a race starts and the default setup is so crazy on some tracks that its funny. On one track, the default tire psi was 20psi on the left side and 60 psi on the right. What I started doing was causing a caution on the first lap, pitting under caution and changing my tire pressures and wedge then.
With damage on in this game, it only hurts your on track performance until you pit. All damage will be repaired after a normal 2 or 4 tire pit stop.
If you wreck any where around pit road, make sure your tires do not touch pit road, as you will get a black flag and be restarted at the beginning of pit road and forced to take a pass through penalty, there will be no cautions, no matter how big of a wreck until you get control of you
