                                       Modes
    ==============================================================================
    
    Race Now
        If you just want to do an old fashioned pick up your controller and
        race, this is the option. Pick your driver and a track to race on after
        you pass the "Race Now" mode.
    
        -Players
             If you got a friend or two or three with you, toggle the number
             from 1 to 4. The 3 other controllers have to be plugged in if
             you are to do 4 players.
    
        -Difficulty
             This affects the difficulty of the speed and your car. There are
             four difficulties and they are; easy, medium, hard and extreme.
             Custom is pretty much self-explainable.
    
        -Race Length
             The more percentage you tune up, the more laps you will go. If
             you want to race in Sharpie 500 at Bristol and you want to go
             around the track 500 miles (Bristol is a 0.5 mile track), crank
             the percentage up to 100%. All the percentage does is affects
             the number of laps you want to go around the track you want to
             race on.
    
        Pick your driver, you can also switch to another paint scheme from
        the same driver by pressing Left/Right on the control pad or the left
        analog stick.
    
        Like stated above, pick your track and you can change the event from
        night to day by pressing left/right on the control pad or the left
        analog stick. However, few tracks don't have night track or day
    
        At the track you picked to race on, you will be given some options
        before you go real NASCAR racing with 42 other AI cars.
    
        -Practice
             There is an old saying - "Practice is the key to success."
             I really believe that and it works out well here, even if you
             are racing under EXTREME difficulty. Go around the track a few
             laps to get the hang of it. If your car doesn't feel right, you
             can always press START and change some few things in the Car
             Setup option.
    
        -Qualify
             Turn in 2 good laps to get a good starting spot for the race.
             Practice can help you out before you qualify.
    
        -Happy Hour
             This is another way of saying Practice, but this occur after you
             qualify. Basically the same thing as Practice mode, but this is
             your last practice before you go to race. Make sure you are
             comfortable with your car and setups before you start your engine
             for the big race.
    
        -Race
             Here it is, you and 42 other competitors will go real NASCAR
             racin'! The winner gets to take home an awesome looking trophy
             and a large check! That winner will be you if you got the car
             to beat.
    
        -Flags
    
             Green - When the green flag drops, the race is on.
             Yellow - The track is in its unsafe condition to race on (single
                      or multiple car wreck OR debris). If the yellow flag
                      drops, race back to the yellow. You are given an option
                      to go in the pit for little adjustment, 4 fresh tires
                      and fuel.
    
             White  - Final lap of the race make one more lap around to the
                      finish line.
    
             Checkered - Race is over... until you go to the next track.
             
             
    
    SpeedZone
        This is for those who are new to NASCAR or the racing game. There are
        four challenges for you to gain experience on and they are: Passing,
        Drafting, Time Trials and Blocking.
    
        -Passing
             Learn how to pass the cars in front of you. Steer to the left or
             right if the path is open to pass the car in front of you and
             do the same for the rest of the cars in front of you. If you
             happen to ram yourself into an AI car, your will lose some points.
             There are 3 levels to pass this experience, the last one is Bristol,
             which is a short and tight track.
    
        -Drafting
             A very simple experience to gain. What is drafting you ask?
             Drafting is a way to gain interval between you and the next
             car. The car in front of you will create an "air pocket" and if
             you are in the car's air pocket, you will be "sucked" in closer
             to the car, like a big vacuum. So, you need to get behind the car
             in front of you and press R2 to draft with him.
    
             Two cars are faster than one and you use LESS FUEL if you draft.
             This feature can really help you out at superspeedway tracks like
             Daytona and Talladega. If you want to "stretch" your fuel, drafting
             is the most common key to do so.
    
        -Time Trials
             All of the levels in this challenge are on fantasy and official
             NASCAR road courses. If you are a inexperienced road racer, the
             challenge is here.
    
        -Blocking
             Its the final lap! You are the leader and you need to keep your
             position by blocking the car behind you. Simply look at the
             rear-view mirror or look at the arrow at the bottom of your
             screen and try to position your car where the tip of the arrow
             is to block.
    
    Lightning Challenge
        Lightning Challenge is your chance to prove you belong on the track. If
        you can complete the challenges, you'll earn Thunder Plates which unlock
        cars, tracks, and drivers.
    
        Michael Waltrip, driver of the #15 NAPA Chevrolet, will be your
        commentator for all of the challenges.
    
        To find out what plates you can get from all of the challenges, look
        under "Thunder Plates."
    
    Thunder License
        Get some experience behind the wheel as you learn every track in the
        country from "The King," Richard Petty, and other top NASCAR drivers.
    
        This is pretty much like the practice mode in "Race Now." Except that
        you don't have an option to mess with your setups.
    
    Season
        You don't have to win every race to finish the season on top. Compete
        consistently in a series of races in quest of a NASCAR championship and
        you might end up with enough points to clutch the cup.
    
    Career
        Work your way through the ranks of NASCAR as you compete for 20
        consecutive seasons. Vie for the best crew, try to sign the top sponsors,
        and incorporate the latest racing technology.
    
        If you want to be offered a good sponsor and money for your team, buy
        new engines, chassis, body and your R&D (reseach and development)...
        you need to race smarter and finish in a good position to do so. If
        your starting and finishing position meets your sponsor's expectation,
        your prestige will raise, and maybe you will be offered better money
        and sponsorship.
    
    
    ==============================================================================
                                      Tracks
    ==============================================================================
    These are the tracks you can race on. Events are from the NASCAR Thunder 2003
    for each tracks, and for the past winners, I got them from the "The Official
    NASCAR 2003 Preview and Press Guide" and picked some drivers that have won at
    the track and not listing all of them.
    
    You may see a locked track when you are scrolling through the events. There
    are two ways you can unlock them. Season or Race Now modes. In Race Now mode,
    you must win the race (either day or night) under medium or higher
    difficulty settings.
    
    For The Shootout and The All-Star, the only way you can unlock them is if you
    go through season mode and win both special events.

       piloting the #11 Hooters Restaurant Ford. At one of the races, he had
       a special paintjob with a large shield on the hood that tribute memory to
       Alan Kulwicki who died in a plane/helicopter crash in 1993. If you didn't
       know, Alan won the championship in 1992 with Hooters as their sponsor and
       this is 10 years after his death.

       to be one of the best racers in the Winston Cup series. His first win
       came in Texas in 1997, he finished 4th in point standings that year, until
       the career best, 3rd, in 2000. Last year, Jeff did not win a race and that
       isn't what he wanted to see but he finished 12th in point standings.

       2002 Daytona 500 winner, Ward Burton, had an up-and-down season this year,
       most of them are engine problems. Ward can take the car to the front if it
       wasn't for those. A native from South Boston and an older brother to Jeff.
       Ward's first win came in 1995 at The Rock (Rockingham) and he added 4
       more after that. Look for Ward in a new team for the 2004 season as
       he and Bill Davis terminated the contract for the #22.

        improved alot and I MEAN alot. His first win came at Bristol spring
        race and then won 3 of the last 5 races of the 2002 season and ended up
        3rd place in points standings. Kurt hoped to perform better this year for
        him and the #97 team.

       The first NASCAR Thunder game doesn't have Ricky Craven, but he is in
       the second one though! I'm sure the fans of Craven are very happy and will
       be able to use him as their driver. A native from Maine joined PPI
       Motorsports and the #32 car back in 2001, which is the year Ricky won his
       first Winston Cup race in Martinsville. Ricky did not add any more win in
       the 2002 season but finsihed 15th in standings with 3 top 5s and 9 top
       10s.
    
       In the 2003 season, the first half of the season, Ricky was having a
       spectacular run and was inside the top 10 in points. He also had a
       win at Darlington as what was to be the most memorable race and the
       shortest margin from 2nd place of .002 second. Craven beat Busch by
       an inch to the finish line after a wild few laps towards the end of
       the race.

        style and his sly grin. He won 76 times, which placed him 6th in the
        all time win list. He died in the final turn of the final lap of the
        2001 Daytona 500.

       The son of the late Dale Earnhardt and half brother of Kerry Earnhardt.
       When Dale Sr. died in the Daytona 500, Dale Jr. came back to the same
       track in the night race and won the race, it was one of the most
       memorable races. Junior looks to be the dominator of restrictor plate
       races now along with teammate Michael Waltrip.

       Steve Park got released from his #1 Pennzoil ride and they both "swapped"
       rides. Jeff is the youngest of the three Green brothers. David (the oldest)
       was the 1994 Busch Series champion and he is the driver of the #37
       Timberwolf in the Busch Series.

       was on his 3rd race) and finished 9th in the point standings. In the 2002
       season, Kevin Harvick was in a sophomore slump and finished 21st in
       point standings, but at least he got a win.

       One of the rookie candidates for the 2002 season, Jimmie Johnson has proved
       himself a better racer than Gordon, just joking. Although, it surprised me
       that Johnson got as high as 2nd place in standings and he is still hanging
       in the top 5s in the point standings. As of the end of 2002 season, Jimmie
       won 3 times with 6 top 5s and 21 top 10s and he ended up 5th in point
       standings... but he lost the Rookie of the Year award to Ryan Newman.

       The #17 team is known to have the world's fastest pit crew but he isn't
       in the Pit Point Standings because of sponsorship, he would probably
       easily win it if it wasn't for the sponsor. Matt was the 2000 Rookie of
       the Year and his best season came in 2002 where he tallied up 5 wins
       and finished 8th in point standings.

        Sterling has been around in the Winston Cup series for quite a long
        time and he is still as good as he can be. He has never won a
        championship but finished 3rd twice. A two-time Daytona 500 winner
        (back-to-back in 1994 and 1995) collected 2 wins in the 2002 season
        and would probably have won his first championship if it wasn't
        for a devastating crash at Kansas Speedway that ended his season.

       Kind of surprised to see the car owner picked Casey Mears to pilot the
       #41 Target car. Casey was a former Indy driver and so was his uncle
       Rick Mears. Mears has never raced in a Winston Cup and he was just in his
       first full season last year in the Busch series where he finished 21st in
       point standings.

       it in the first several races.

    Hold 'em off (Rookie)
    Subway 500
    Martinsville Speedway
    Kurt Busch
    
             Johnny Benson was all over Kurt Busch's bumper in the closing laps
             of the 2002 Martinsville race, but could not make the pass giving
             Busch the win. Hold off Benson with 6 to go for the win.
    
             [ ] Stay above 10th or better
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: You have to play defense here at the short "paper clip" track. Johnny
         Benson will be right on your back bumper and you have to keep him
         behind you. If you can't hold him off for the first several laps, try
         to finish in the top 10.

    Kissing the bricks (Rookie)
    Brickyard 400
    Indianapolis Motor Speedway
    Bill Elliott
    
             Bill Elliott passed Rusty Wallace late in the 2002 Indianapolis race
             and went onto win for the second straight week. With 2 to go, can
             you get past Rusty and Matt Kenseth to win Indy?
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
    
    Key: You can try and press "R2" to draft with Rusty Wallace or Matt Kenseth
         who are up in front of you on the back straightway. If you passed them
         both on the 1st/2nd turn, then just have a nice and steady ride one more
         time around the track. Try to brake frequently entering the 1st turn and
         3rd turn from leaving the two long straightaways. If you do not brake
         frequently, your car may skid out of track and you ending up not beating
         this challenge.

    Chrome Horn (Rookie)
    Sharpie 500
    Bristol Motor Speedway
    Jeff Gordon
    
             During the final 3 laps of the 2002 Sharpie 500, Jeff Gordon bumped
             his way past Rusty Wallace to take the lead. Once again, be agressive
             to get by Rusty and win the race.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: You got 3 laps left, so make your move and try to get Rusty Wallace
         lose in the turns and drive under him to pass him. You may also battle
         some lapped/about to be lapped cars, so try not to make a wrong move
         like slowing down greatly which could cause Wallace to catch you and
         may pass you.

    Out in clean air (Rookie)
    Mountain Dew Southern 500
    Darlington Raceway
    Jeff Gordon
    
             Jeff Gordon easily won the 2002 Darlington race with almost a 2
             second leasd over Ryan Newman. Starting with a caution restart on
             lap 238, take the lead by lap 240 to win the challenge.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: You will start off on a double-file restart. Try to draft with Ryan
         Newman on the first lap or if you are clear low and you are right on
         Newman's bumper, you can drive down and go to the inside of him. Once
         you get clear off him, run around the track one more time with the lead
         lap cars behind you.

    Every drop counts (Rookie)
    Tropicana 400
    Chicagoland Speedway
    Kevin Harvick
    
             A fuel mileage gamble during the final caution paid off by moving
             Kevin Harvick up 8 spots on his way to a 2002 Tropicana 400 win.
             Survive the final 3 laps and win without running out of fuel.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: I am not totally sure how old the tires are, but I seemed to be fine
         that I beat the challenge. You will be driving as Kevin Harvick with
         very low fuel and you will have to run around the Chicagoland track 3
         times. I doubt you will be out of gas towards the last lap unless you
         were using the gas a lot. Brake frequently when entering turn 1 and 3,
         and since Chicagoland has a long and wide corners, you can step on the
         accelerator after you slowed down entering the turns. Try to keep Jeff
         Gordon and co. behind you as you go for the win.

    Second time's a charm (Rookie)
    UAW-GM Quality 500
    Lowe's Motor Speedway
    Jamie McMurray
    
             Jamie McMurray made history by winning the 2002 Lowe's race and
             became the quickest winner in the modern NASCAR era. Hold off
             Bobby Labonte's charge with 2 laps to go to take the win again.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: This is one of the memorable races where Sterling Marlin was hurt and
         Jamie McMurray was a substitute driver and Lowe's being his 2nd career
         cup race and he won it. Bobby Labonte will be right on your tailgate
         while you go around this track two times. Try to make 2 good quick laps
         around the track while holding off B. Labonte and J. Gordon and give
         Jamie his 2nd win. You may have trouble exiting Lowe's Turn 4 because
         you will be on the gas coming out of the turn and the wall will be right
         there to your right, so keep the steering wheel to the left as far as
         you can to avoid making contact with the wall. If you make contact with
         that Turn 4 wall, it could reduce your speed and Bobby Labonte will take
         the win and not you.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    So close... (Rookie)
    Dodge Save Mart 350
    Infineon Raceway
    Jerry Nadeau
    
             Jerry Nadeau was in position to win the 2002 Infineon race when
             the rear-end broke with 3 laps remaining. This time the car will
             hold together. Hold off Ricky Rudd with one to go for the win.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: Remember, Infineon is a road course track and you may be inexperienced
         or have raced on this track the previous games. Every turns on this
         tracks are dangerous, so you will be using the brake a lot and you
         also will be jerking the wheel left and right. You have a huge lead,
         plenty of time for you to make your way around each turn and you will
         probably lose a lot of time at the last and VERY sharp turn of the track
         before you cross the finish line.

    Defending Champ (Rookie)
    EA Sports 500

    Ryan Newman
    
             Ryan Newman won the 2002 EA SPORTS NASCAR Thunder Challenge by
             defeating Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick. Adding Jeff Gordon to
             the lineup you get 2 laps to defend his title.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: You are driving as Ryan Newman, trying to eliminate the Chevrolets
         from being the dominant car in restrictor-plate racing. Show Dodge
         and your team that you can win this race. Drafting is the important
         key here, or else you will have a hard time trying to catch the 1st
         place car while going around the track 2 times.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Do-Over (Rookie)
    Pocono 500
    Pocono Raceway
    Ricky Rudd
    
             For the second week in a row, Ricky Rudd blew a tire while leading
             with only a few laps left. This time the tire will not blow and
             Ricky will have to pass Jeff Burton with 2 laps left for the win.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
    
    Key: You may not have to worry about drafting if you are a skilled driver at
         Pocono. However, this isn't a drafting game and try to dive down low and
         get under J. Burton on the 1st turn of this track. If you successfully
         pass him, maintain a good couple laps around the track. The only part
         you may have trouble with is the 2nd corner of the track where the
         outside wall is is where you may make contact with.

    Elliott Sadler
    
             Elliott Sadler stayed calm after starting the 2002 Daytona 500
             in 41st place and drafted his way to a 2nd place finish. With one
             more lap can you get around Ward Burton for the win?
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 12th or better
    
    Key: The AI cars are smarter in this version of game than last year's. At
         superspeedway, you don't want to jerk your wheel hard or you'll lose
         time and you may just spin off the track. Tilt your control stick steady
         and try to take some draft off W. Burton and go up high to the right a
         little bit and he will try to block you off to the right. Once you get
         close enough to him on the right, jerk to the left (not too hard) and
         get underneath him and pass him into turn 1 and 2 of this track. Keep
         all of the competitors behind you while you give Elliott another win.

             Tony Stewart came from a lap down and secured the 2002 championship
             with an 18th place finish in Miami. Jump out in front of the leaders
             on the restart and get Tony's lap back by lap 227.
    
             [ ] Stay on lead lap
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 25th or better
    
    Key: You will be racing on the 2002 Homestead track, the flat one. Tony
         Stewart was a lap down and somehow he managed to get on the lead lap
         and won the championship after the race. You will be piloting the #20
         Home Depot Chevrolet at the restart, but a lap down. Try to get on the
         lead lap by passing the first lapped car in front of you and the leader
         at the 1st and 2nd turn. Since the 2002 Homestead is a flat track, brake
         easily into the corners and you can accelerate coming out of the corners.

    Michael Waltrip
    
             Michael Waltrip won the 2002 Pepsi 400 under caution after Dale
             Earnhardt Jr. could not find drafting help to pass him. This time
             the race will finish under green and Jr. will have some help.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
    
    Key: Get in front of Dale Earnhardt Jr. who is in the red #8 car to your
         right. Make sure he is behind you (it doesn't HAVE to be him) and have
         him help you draft one time around this track to the finish line.

    Ricky Craven
    
             In a spectacular finish, Ricky Craven beat Kurt Busch by mere inches
             to win the 2003 Darlington race. It's the last lap and you will have
             to make the pass on Busch to get the win.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
    
    Key: With one lap to go, you will be able to catch Kurt Busch on the back
         straightway or before you cross the finish line. Try to make a good
         speed around the 1st and 2nd turn of the track and if you are able to
         track down Kurt Busch on the back straightway, you will have no problem
         passing him to win the race.

    Ricky Rudd
    
             Luck was on Ricky Rudd's side as he managed to avoid countless
             wrecks in the 2003 Texas race. Get Rudd through one more with
             no damage to pass the challenge.
    
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No car damage
             [ ] Stay above 30th or better
    
    Key: You will be around the wide 3rd and 4th turn of the track. The wreck
         will occur in front of you and you can slow down and look for a clear
         spot to go through. Sometimes that clear spot isn't too clear because
         there are other cars around you and you have to beat this challenge
         without ahy damage on your car. Don't try to slam on your brake too
         hard, because if there is a car behind you, he could collide into the
         back of you. Try to finish 30th or higher to beat this challenge.

    Michael Waltrip
    
             With the help of teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr., Michael Waltrip
             went on to win his second Daytona 500. With Dale's help, let's
             see if you can pull away from the pack and win the race.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
    
    Key: Get in front of your teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. who is driving the
         red #8 car. Once you get him behind you, have him help you draft
         around the track until you get to the finish line.

    Segment One (Veteran)
    The All-Star
    Lowe's Motor Speedway
    Jeff Burton
    
             Jeff Burton's strategy of pitting on the last lap almost got him
             the win in the All-Star race at Lowe's. This time Burton pitted
             with the rest of the field and is in 4th with 3 laps to go. Get
             Burton the win!
    
             [ ] Stay above 14th or better
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: You will be using draft more in veteran difficulty than you did in
         rookie difficulty. You do not have to pit in this challenge as to
         what happened with J. Burton in the real race. You have to catch draft
         from either Bill Elliott or Jimmie Johnson who are in front of you
         if you pass Jeremy Mayfield in the first or second turn of the track.
         So, this is more like a drafting challenge than anything else.

             Dale Earnhardt Jr. went 38 laps on a single fuel load to win the
             2002 EA SPORTS 500. With the lead and low fuel, block and lift to
             stretch your fuel 3 more laps to win the race.

             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
    
    Key: Another one of these superspeedway and drafting challenge. The only
         difference is the speed of the AI from the rookie challenges. Keep
         the competitors behind you and have one of them help you draft to the
         finish line.

    Time to go? (Veteran)
    SIRIUS at the Glen
    Watkins Glen International
    Robby Gordon
    
             A slow restart by Ryan Newman made it impossible for Robby Gordon
             to catch Tony Stewart for the 2002 Watkins Glen race win. Restarting
             in third, get past Stewart and Newman for the win.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 13th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: The only good key I can give you is to turn in good time at all of the
         turns. Braking frequently before each turn really brought me closer
         and closer to the leader, that is if you successfully pass the 2nd
         place car at the 1st turn of the track or the uphill "S" turns after
         the 1st turn. The only tough part of the track to get through is
         probably the 4 turns after the straightway.

             Kevin Harvick made it through a huge pile-up untouched when
             Robby Gordon and Jimmie Johnson got together. Maneuver the #29
             Chevrolet through the wreck with no damage.
    
             [ ] No car damage
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] Stay above 12th or better
    
    Key: Remember, this is much like the Ricky Rudd and Texas challenge in the
         rookie diffculty. The difference is that this is under veteran
         difficulty, the AI cars has a little more speed with it and you are
         on a short track. Short track meaning no room to go around and a LITTLE
         tap to another car or the wall will fail you. When it gets to go green,
         slow down, because the wreck will occur in front of you and somehow I
         managed to go through the outside through the traffic and ended up 6th.
         Look for any opening and gun through it and try to go easy around the
         Bristol track, because if you scrape the wall, you will fail this
         challenge.

             On lap 499 of the 2002 Virginia 500, two cars spun and Bobby
             Labonte won under caution. This time no cars will spin. Hold
             off teammate Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth for the win.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: You will be racing on a flat short track, so that means you will
         have to take it slow around the corners. Not that slow, but enough
         for you to steer along the bottom line and step on the accelerator
         out of the turns. You will do this for at least 4 laps and keep
         the other competitors behind you.

    Worst to first (Veteran)
    Carolina Dodge Dealers 400
    Darlington Raceway
    Sterling Marlin
    
             A pre-race engine change and a 43rd starting spot could not keep
             Sterling Marlin from winning the 2002 Darlington race. Go from
             43rd to 35th in 4 laps to start your charge to the front.
    
             [ ] Finish 35th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: Darlington is an irregular racetrack as one end of the track is
         smaller than the other. The smaller side of the track will get you
         to use the brake a little more than the long side. Using another
         car's draft is the key to get to 35th position or better for this
         challenge and also good time around both ends of the track.

             Dale Jarrett overcame a spin on lap 11 in the 2002 Michigan race
             for his 30th career win. Starting 11th, stay on the lead lap after
             a spin in turn 4, and make it to to 32nd within 3 laps.
    
             [ ] Finish 32nd or better
             [ ] Stay on lead lap
    
    Key: This has got to be the toughest challenge under veteran difficulty.
         You will be driving in the #88 UPS Ford and you will be expected to
         spin automatically around the front straightway. You can either let
         the car spin until it stops and gas yourself to the line or try to
         gain control of the car from spinning and go to the line.
    
         You have an option to pit or not to pit. If you refuse, you will have
         a hard time getting control of your car around the turns. I would pit
         if I was you and get 4 new fresh tires. Once the green flag drops,
         catch the draft from another car and go around the turns as smooth and
         carry as much speed as you can. Once in the while there will be a
         minor accident by one of the AI cars halfway down the field and cause
         10-15 other AI cars behind them to slow down and you will be easily
         be able to pose a 25-32nd place finish.

             [ ] Finish 15th or better

             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: Drafting to a 15th place or better position is the key here. There is
         not much else I can give you. Sometimes the cars ahead of you will try
         to block you, but you can go up high and then jerk back down to the
         low side and pass them on the inside. If you make a mistake at one part,
         like hitting the wall slightly, don't fall back to 26th or worst.

             closing laps of the 2003 Subway 400. Jarrett passed Busch twice
             to get the win. You have 2 laps to make a pass on Busch for the win.

             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
    
    Key: The #88 Ford and the #97 Ford both got old tires, so you and that
         car will be having a hard time to control the car. The only part you
         will have a hard time is entering turn 1 and 3 with old tires on. Go
         cautiously with some brake into those turns, if you just tap the brake
         lightly, you'll go up hit and probably hit the wall. If you hit the
         brake harder than you think, your car will just spin out of control
         and you will most likely slide down the track and result you out of the
         track. Go easy into the corners and keep the competition behind you.

             After a slow start on the final caution restart Bobby Labonte
             nudged Jeff Gordon out of the way to win the 2003 Atlanta race.
             With 2 laps to go make the pass on Gordon to get the win.

             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
    
    Key: Catching draft from Jeff Gordon's car and getting a good first lap
         is the key to get up to his rear bumper. He will probably try to
         block you, so go to the right side and once he goes to the right, jerk
         to the left and dive down low to the inside of him. Once you are inside
         him, gun your car and head for the finish line.

    Key: The first two laps, you want to put in good lap time to be able to
         get good draft off Dale Earnhardt Jr. and catch him. On the final
         lap, you can play a passing game on him whether you go low or high,
         go for the finish him.

             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: You will be racing on the fastest track, Atlanta. You will also be
         racing under legend difficulty and that means the speed will be
         cranked up from the veteran difficulty. Braking easily before entering
         the wide turn 1 and 3 of the track will give you good speed to step on
         the gas coming out of turn 2 and 4. Drafting will also help you here.

             2 laps to repeat Ward Burton's win.
    
             [ ] Stay above 13th or better
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: New Hampshire is another one of those flat tracks and that means you'll
         have to use the brake a little more than you used at banked tracks.
         You may think that the two cars ahead of you are too far away, but you
         can gain a lot of time going in and if you can step on the gas early
         coming out of turn 2 and 4, you'll have no problem winning this race.

             Polesitter Ricky Craven's hopes of winning the 2002 Darlington
             race were spoiled by an early wreck. This time Ricky will have
             made it through the crash. Get the win from 5th with 5 laps to

             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 15th or better
    
    Key: Darlington is nicknamed "Too Tough To Tame" because of the irregular
         track shape. One side of the track is shorter in length than the
         other side but both of the straightways are about the same in length.
         At the short end of the track is where you will use your brake a little
         more. The long side of the track is not all that difficult to get
         through, but if you carry big speed around it, watch out for the outside
         wall because it will be right there when you exit out of turn 2. If
         you hit that wall, you will get a "Darlington Stripe," a famous term
         for those who hit that wall and give it a black stripe.

             Jeff Green finished the 2002 Richmond race in 3rd, but thought
             he could have won with a few more laps. With 4 laps to go, get

    Key: Richmond is a short track and has little banks in the turns. Brake early
         before entering turn 1 and 3 and as your car float around the bottom,
         gun it out of turn 2 and 4. If you keep doing this, you will be able to
         catch Newman's draft on the 3rd or 2nd to last lap. The margin between
         1st and 2nd is short enough for you to pass both cars on one lap.

             Jimmie Johnson stayed out during the final caution of the Dover
             race and went on to win on worn tires. The lead lap cars have
             pitted, so you will need to hold off Bill Elliott with worn tires
             to get the win.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: Old tires means less control of your car. The rear end of your car will
         most likely try to drift itself up the track. Go on the throttle early
         and gun out of turn 2 and 4 as quick as you can. You will have to brake
         easily into turn 1 and 3 because of the tires and remember to keep the
         competition behind you because they got fresh tires.

    Dodge Save Mart 350
    Infineon Raceway
    Terry Labonte
    
             Terry Labonte's decision to finish the 2002 Infineon race on
             worn tires scored him a 3rd place finish. It's the final lap!
             You're on worn tires and will need to at least finish in 3rd
             place.
    
             [ ] Finish 3rd or better
             [ ] Stay above 13th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: This has to be the easiest Legend challenge, even on worn tires if
         you are a skilled road racer. It is very hard to pass on road courses
         because of multiple turns and narrow road. The only time you can pass
         is if you have a fast car and you see a gap that you can dive into.
         Anyway, you are on the restart and you'll be in first position, try
         to take it slow around the track and don't worry about the competitors
         behind you, as long as you shut the door on the INSIDE part of the
         corner, they won't be able to pass you.

    Aero Push! (Legend)
    MBNA Armed Force Family 400
    Dover International Speedway
    Mark Martin
    
             Mark Martin challenged for the lead with 5 laps to go, but due
             to poor handling he could not make the pass. The problem is fixed
             and you have the chance to get the win as you approach lap traffic.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 11th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: By the way, I was at this race at the exit of 4th turn. Anyway, Jimmie
         Johnson is your leader and you are racing as Mark Martin. You will be
         facing some lapped cars, but as long as you turn in 3 good laps to get
         rid of the lapped cars and you are on the #48's rear bumper, you are
         good to make a move on the last lap. Brake easily into turn 1 and 3,
         but the corners are wide enough for you to get back on gas as soon
         as you can to chase down the leader.

    Nothing to show for it (Legend)
    Ford 400
    '02 Homestead-Miami Speedway
    Joe Nemechek
    
             Joe Nemechek dominated the 2002 Ford 400, but a slow pitstop
             caused him to lose valuable spots and he wound up finishing
             second. Here's another chance at the win, starting in 9th with
             6 laps to go.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 19th or better
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: Let me give you one hint, you don't have to stay on track. Good thing
         it said that because the 2002 Homestead track is so flat that it
         requires some brake to get around the tight corners. You are able to
         drive down under the white line (along the grass) and gun for 1st
         position. Remember, you are starting 9th and you'll have to go
         around the track 5 times, plenty of time for you to chase down and
         catch the leader.

    One more chance (Legend)
    Chevy Rock N Roll 400
    Richmond International Raceway
    Steve Park
    
             Steve Park picked up 27 positions by the end of the 2002 Richmond
             race, but thinks he could win it if given another shot at it.
             Starting 8th with 5 laps to go, take Steve's cornering advice and
             get the win.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 18th or better
    
    Key: Exactly like the one for Jeff Green in this challenge. The only
         difference is that you will start 8th and you get 5 laps around this
         track. Go around Richmond's semi-banked corners as smooth as you can
         and then get on the throttle as early as possible to catch down the
         cars in front of you. You will also need to brake early before
         entering these turns, but not too hard.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Hot for a win (Legend)
    Checker Auto Parts 500
    Phoenix International Raceway
    Rusty Wallace
    
    
             Rusty Wallace nearly kept his winning streak alive in the 2002
             Phoenix race. He came up a bit short finishing 2nd to Matt Kenseth.
             Move up from 3rd to 1st with 4 laps to go to keep it alive.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 13th or better
    
    Key: Phoenix is also a flat track, but it doesn't require as much brake
         as you needed for the other flat track you've raced on. Catch some
         draft from the 2nd place car in front of you to gain some ground
         on him and the leader on the first 2 or 3 laps. You may be able to
         pass into 2nd position on one of the early laps. Go easy into the
         corners and just step on the gas as soon as possible and you won't
         have to worry about hitting into the wall because of Phoenix's
         tri-oval track.

    North Carolina Speedway
    Mike Skinner
    
             Mike Skinner had a strong car all day in the 2002 North Carolina
             race, but fell just short of a top 5 finish. We're going to give
             you 5 more laps to see if you can earn him a trip to victory lane.
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 15th or better
    
    Key: Rockingham is not a friendly track at all. Turn 1 of the track is
         probably the only turn where you will have the most trouble on. 
         That turn is the sharpest on the track and you will have to slow
         down or use the brake softly before entering the turn to have a nice
         smooth ride around turn 1 and 2. Do this at least 4 more laps and
         you will have no problem catching the leader and maybe you could grab
         1st place on the 3rd lap and go around 2 more times to the finish
         line!

    Johnny Benson
    
             With low fuel and worn tires, Johnny Benson edged out his old
             teammate for his first win in 226 starts. Conserve tires and
             fuel in order to have enough to hold off Mark Martin for the
             win.
    
             [ ] Stay above 10th or better
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: Many people seems to be having problem conserving fuel for challenges
         like this one. To conserve fuel, let go off the gas EARLY and try not
         to use the brake entering the corner because of worn tires. With
         old tires on, you will have trouble controlling the car in the turns.
         Yes, this is the hardest challenge yet, but don't use brake or else
         you will wear out your tires some more, so let go off the gas into
         the turns and punch it after you leave Turn 2 and 4, this way you
         will be able to conserve fuel and save tires.

    On second thought...
    Pepsi 400
    Daytona International Speedway
    Dale Earnhardt Jr.
    
             Dale Earnhardt Jr. got out of line to pass Michael Waltrip and
             was hung out to dry, a decision he regretted. This time, do
             whatever it takes to get DEI a 1-2 finish. Any order will win
             the challenge.
    
             [ ] Finish 2nd or better
             [ ] Ally Must Finish 2nd or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay above 10th or better
    
    Key: It is all about drafting here at Daytona. The track is long and wide
         enough to do a lot of drafting. The important thing is you have to
         keep Michael Waltrip #15 in front of you and help him draft to the
         finish OR have him behind you and draft you to the finish. It doesn't
         matter if you win or lose, its a DEI 1-2 finish. Just as long as #8
         and #15 are in the top 2.

    SIRIUS 400
    Michigan International Speedway
    Dale Jarrett
    
             Even with four fresh tires, Dale Jarrett lost the battle for the
             win with Matt Kenseth in the 2002 Michigan race. Can you fight
             through the pack from 10th to get Jarrett the win with 5 laps to
             go?
    
             [ ] Finish 1st
             [ ] Stay above 19th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
    
    Key: Michigan is another one of those track where you'll have to use some
         of the draft to bring yourself to the front. Michigan's 1st and 3rd
         turn requires one little tap on your brake to be able to get around
         the corners without losing control or drifting up the track.

    Matt Kenseth
    
             At one point Matt Kenseth was 2 laps down, but still pushed hard
             to win his fourth race of 2002 in Richmond. Stay on the lead lap
             before the caution drops and finish 25th in 3 laps to win the
             challenge.
    
             [ ] Finish 25th or better
             [ ] Stay above 30th or better
             [ ] Stay on the track
             [ ] No reckless driving
             [ ] Stay on lead lap
    
    Key: You'll have to beat 2 challenges in this one. One is to get your lap
         back by passing the nearest car in front of you and stay on the lead
         lap until a caution comes out. After the caution, you can pit or not,
         it doesn't matter because you were the last car on the lead lap and
         even if you pit, you'll still be the last car. When the green flag
         drops, go around the track 3 times and try to finish 25th or higher
         to beat this challenge.

                                  Thunder Plates
    ==============================================================================
    You can get at least 2 or 1 card from completing a Lightning Challenge in
    Race Modes option. Just pick a challenge and accomplish it to get a card or
    two, and it can be a Legend driver, Busch driver, Sponsor, or Paint Scheme.
    
    If you go in the Race Now mode and when you go pick a driver, tilt your
    control stick to the left or right and you'll see that there are other
    paintjobs you can race with, some has the Muppets or the Looney Tunes on
    them. Half of the paintjobs on there are locked and the only way to get them
    is if you win at a track with a driver (say like.. Ryan Newman) and you will
    get a new paintjob (it can be his 2003 Sony/Wega scheme or something else).
    One thing is that you can't win at the same track with the same driver or
    else you won't get a new paintjob, but YOU CAN go to the same track at a
    DIFFERENT TIME (Bristol day and night, etc.) and this has to be done under
    MEDIUM, HARD, and EXTREME difficulty.

    To view more cameos (when you start the game, people will say "EA Sports,
    It's in the game" before you go to the main menu). Create a new driver and
    name him Seymore Cameos (first and last) and you will get a new Thunder
    Plate called Cameos. To view the cameos, look in EA SPORTS EXTRA.
    
    Once you turn on the Playstation 2 with NASCAR Thunder 2003 inside, they
    always have a little clip of real people saying "EA Sports, It's in the game",
    here are the list of people that said it.
