I never even heard of this game until now, 1 week before launch. I love watching late models / dirt track racing in general and played alot of ps2 games with sprint cars, etc.

Hell yeah! Ive never heard of it either. A good sprint car game could be awesome of its done right.

I can't wait to see the simulator setups people come up with to mimic the sprint cars.

I'm thinking a giant steering wheel, a milk crate for a seat and jam it all into the smallest closet in the house.

Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.

Thats cool they got Kears Speedshop plug put in there, they are an awesome family and small town shop. I used to get torsion bars, heims, radius rods, bird cage bearings, pretty much all manner of parts from them.

Haha I live in the same town a Kears and drive past it daily. My step dad used to ride to the races with Shirley when he was a young man and Ive heard lots of stories. He took me and my brother to many sprint races when I was a kid and made a lot of good memories and was some of my first exposure to any racing. Her shop caught on fire a while back and I think the damage was limited but the apartment she rented to a girl above the shop got fucked. Kinda cool that her shop from this little town is known around the country!

I'm pretty excited, it's been so long since we've had a sprint car game for the console. I think the last sprint car game I played was World of Outlaws 2002 for the PS2? Holy crap it has been awhile. I just want to know if it has real tracks or not.

I’ll be getting it for sure

I dunno if that looks that good but my favourite game of all time was World of Outlaws from back in '02 I think, so even if it doesn't look 'great' if the gameplay is as good I'll be stoked

The tracks are fictional, but there is a lot of tracks even indoor tracks. With smoke involved with the game i was hoping for at least Eldora. Maybe if this game has success the next game devs could get the license to add real tracks.

I kind of assumed that they would be fictional tracks. I did find that they are working on getting licensing for tracks to release as DLC. Could just be a rumor, but I live in an area where there's a plethora of tracks. Would be cool to see one of them like Williams Grove or Lincoln Speedway in the game.

Anyone have any suggestions for seat/wheel/peddle set ups? I’ve done some home made stuff that I wasn’t too happy with. I have a XBox system if that matters. I’ve never had a Sprint car game ....this looks great!

Hells yes!! Never played a Sprint Car game before

Chico when it's so sticky you've got to run 17inches of stagger to get the car to turn with 15lb in the right rear and 5 in the left with 2 turns to the rt rear
Used to be able to (have to) bolt 40lb of lead under radiator.

Fun place to set up a car ...

I’m so pumped they have non wing and midgets

I remember playing a SC game at my cousins house many many years ago, it was fun! This looks pretty damn cool, will they have it for PC?

Watching that gameplay video, everyone should HAVE to use in car camera IMO, makes it so much harder and more "real".

Ive ran bigtime stagger like that before, damn near cant hold 'er straight, crabbin' like a mofo but at the end of the straight just let it lean in and the wind catches the sideboards. If needed throw a big spacer on the RR axle loosen the rear up.

2 turns on the RR ? You run 1000s all the way around?

Put the turns in to get the corner weight off the left rear and the bars were 1050 and 925-975's from what I remember. With short blocks in the rear. Track really is rough as hell in the spring.

Oh I know what turns are, just wondering if we were talking the same thing. When I started out I put a 1050 on RR but moved down later as I got braver. LOL I experimented with blocks, but most 'typical' setup notes didnt always translate as my Gambler was a 87/41 and was naturally a bit loose. (the guys at Gambler called it a "lazy" chassis) At that time people were tinkering with 39" cars to deal with dry slick towards the end of the feature.

Haaah ! One night I told my driver as we sat outside front row ... Brian, the car won't go to the bottom for the first 8 or so ... DON'T fight it ! Let it roll in the middle and by the end we'll be fine. Long ass story short... owner-Brian's father-in-law freaked a fucking noodle when I told him the setup... knew I should've lied ... we were running 2nd behind one of NoCal's best at the time... well owner ran to the car on an open red and was yellin at Brian and me and I had to change the car... Brian spun the car twice in the next 5 laps and we were done. I told Brian after that I would finish the season with him and that would be it. We finally started to get that car sorted too. Took a few more years to get onto a real fun team out here in Wi. Still go and may do it more in a wrenching capacity this summer.. we'll see.
Prayers for you down there to have a good growing and birthing season. 👍

I played a game on PS1 that had Nascar, Indy, and Sprint Cars (I think?). I thought it was Andretti Racing but that's only Nascar and Indy. I could be going mad? Ony went to watch Sprint Cars once when I was little and until we copped a ridiculous storm, it was pretty cool to see and hear.

I put in quite a few hours with this game last night and I have to give it 5 stars. I was worried considering games usually backed by a star driver/rider get cheesy quick. They knocked this one out of the park. Using no driver aids is the key to making this title work

PROS:
Immersive career mode
Unique tracks and a good amount of them
Team customization
Realistic front wheel hop
The ability to buy and sell parts
Long seasons
Rewarding sponsor objectives
Awesome price!

Cons:
No Driver's POV camera
