Needs some serious updates. Game can be fantastic but it appears rushed into production. Lots of flaws that should be corrected. Quick pit-stops should be an option. Taking so long to do a pit stop with as many wrecks as there are is ridiculous. Also the pit stops are WAY TOO structured! The AI pits in groups at the weirdest times and staying out for 1 lap when it is just stupid to do so makes the game unrealistic and lazy....
Activision has just completely butchered the NASCAR games. If they could, they need to look back to EAs NASCAR Thunder 2003 for examples on how to do it right. 03 had one of the best career modes I missed playing as a kid.
Or it wouldn't hurt to bring Dirt to Daytona back. so much fun.
i would like to see them add play by play and add budshoot out, and duels for daytona , the game would be great if they take out boring game out of it. if you can get fox commentor and have a prerace broadcast,
dont forget allstar weekend as well.
this is what the game lacking gameplay is really good.

I'm just going to list the bad things, because there was more of them than good things.
1) During a practice, if you want to make a change to the car, you have to save the "tune" every time you make a change to it. This is very time consuming and annoying.
2) You DO NOT control race starts/restarts. The computer controls your car until you're past the start finish line and up to speed. This completely takes out the aspect of trying to get a good jump, not spinning your tires, etc. Very "arcade-ish".
3) Like race starts, you also DO NOT control pit stops. Once you enter pit lane, the computer takes control of your car. You don't even get to leave your pit stall yourself. It would have been much more fun to have to pull into your pit stall and leave it yourself. (at least on the most expert mode)
4) If your used to the Forza racing game series, you will find the handling in this game very twitchy. Tire spin is also very unrealistic.
