The visual impression is just excellent: polygonal graphics, cool, beautifully painted cars, a lot of all sorts of bells and whistles. This game is much better than Andretti Racing and you will not regret your time on it. In terms of sound, TV commentator Bob Jenkins accompanies each race, urging riders to win. The sound of the racing engines is recorded both from the cockpit and from the track, so full sound is provided. And how? In accordance with NASCAR '98 rules, the races are attended by 24 cars and drivers (in each race), depicting real prototypes and drivers and cars. They will “burn rubber” on 17 tracks: six licensed road tracks, eight licensed laps and six fantastic (invented by the developers) tracks with incredible turns. Possible modes of one and two players (split screen). You can race in a single or seasonal race, change tire pressure, take into account telemetry data, cornering style, etc. - i.e. hone your skills, optimize your race. Here, collisions and overtaking, clever tactics and pit stops (refueling and rubber change points) - everything is at your service. Simultaneously, all drivers play their own “game”, so that the races are never repeated. To win, you have to show ingenuity and skill.
