    Welcome to Warhawk's NASCAR Thunder 2003 Racing Guide.  I hope that you'll be
    able to find this guide very informative and a couple things that weren't
    covered in the other guide that is currently posted on Game FAQs.  With those
    sections I am hoping that you'll be able to be successful while out on the 
    track, and possibly win a few championships in both Season and Career modes.

            **Georgia 500**
    
    Strategy
    --------
    As you come out of turn 4 you should be around 172 - 174 MPH as you exit the
    turn towards the start/finish line.  As you go down the frontstretch you
    should be able to reach around 194 - 195 MPH before entering turns 1 - 2.
    When you go through turns 1 - 2 be sure to let off the gas before enter in
    the turns to around and keep your speed steady to around 169 - 174 MPH through
    the turns.  As you exit turn 2 you want to get near the wall but not real
    close to where you end up scraping the wall and whatnot.  Before you enter
    turns 3 - 4 your speed should reach to around 189 MPH before entering those
    turns.  Just like you did in turns 1 - 2 let off the brake a bit until you
    get down to around 170 - 171 MPH but a tip that I can give is to keep it
    steady on the brake not just through turns 3 - 4 but as well as turns 1 - 2.

    Events: Food City 500 
            Sharpie 500
    
    Strategy
    --------
    Let's get to the point to how to get around this short but fast race track.
    As you race out of turn 4 you want to be around 106 - 108 if you manage to
    get out of turn 4 at those speeds.  As you go down the frontstretch across
    the start/finish line and before you enter turns 1 - 2 you might be able to
    reach to around 125 - 129 maybe a few MPH under that.  As you brake to enter
    the turns 1 - 2 slow down to around 106 - 108 MPH.  As you exit turn 2 to
    head down the backstretch just like any other track be sure not to hit the
    wall or you'll loose speed.  As you go down the backstretch you should get to
    around 129 MPH before braking for turns 3 - 4.  When you go through turns 3 -
    4, you want to be around 106 - 108 through the turns.  As you exit turn 4 do
    the same as you did on the backstretch but this time to the start/finish line.

    Event: NAPA Auto Parts 500
    
    Strategy
    --------
    California is a track with not very much banking which allows for long green
    flag racing.  As you exit out of turn 4 you should be around 165 - 168 MPH as
    you head towards the start/finish line.  As you race down the frontstretch
    you can be able to reach around 195 MPH before entering turns 1 - 2.  When
    you start to brake into turns 1 - 2 you should be around 166 - 170 MPH, then
    as you exit turn 2 be sure to race up near the wall as you head down the
    backstretch.  You will reach to around 191 MPH before braking for turns 3 -
    4, and when you enter turns 3 - 4 drop your speed to around 166 - 170 MPH.
    As you exit turn 4 you should be around 175 MPH and gaining as you exit turn
    4 racing to the start/finish line.

    Banking on Back Stretch: 5*
    Inaugral Race: 2001
    Event: Tropicana 400
    
    Strategy
    --------
    Chicagoland is almost similar to Las Vegas, but at Chicago the speeds seem to
    be a bit higher than at Vegas.  As you exit out of turn 4 you should be
    around 166 - 168 MPH as you head down the frontstretch to the start/finish
    line.  As you race down the frontstretch you should reach a speed around 191
    MPH before heading into turns 1 - 2.  As you brake to head in turns 1 - 2
    slow down to around 165 - 167 as you head through the turns, and as you exit
    out of turn 2 slide up by the wall but not too close though.  As you race
    down the backstretch, reaching a speed to around 188 MPH before heading
    through turns 3 - 4.  When you brake to go through turns 3 - 4 to around 165 -
    167 MPH through turns 3 - 4.  Now as you exit turn 4 around 170 or better to
    the start/finish line.

    Events: Carolina Dodge Dealers 400 
            Mountain Dew Southern 500
    
    Strategy
    --------
    Alright let's get to the strategy of how to get around this legendary track.
    When you exit turn 4 heading onto the frontstretch you want to be around 140
    - 143 MPH heading towards the start/finish line.  When you head down the
    fronstretch to turns 1 - 2 of a speed around 175 MPH before entering turns 1
    - 2.  As you go through turns 1 - 2 slow down to around 150 - 156 MPH by the
    time you exit out of turn 2.  As you race down the backstretch be up by the
    wall but be sure not to try getting your Darlington stripe.  Before you head
    in turns 3 - 4 you should be able to get a speed of around 180 MPH.  As you
    brake to go through turns 3 - 4 slow down to around 133 - 140 MPH as you come
    out of turn 4 to the start/finish line.

    Strategy
    --------
    Let's get on with on how to get around the Daytona International Speedway.
    As you come out of turn 4 you want to be around 182 MPH as you go onto the
    frontstretch towards the start/finish line.  As you head down the
    frontstretch you should be able to reach around 195 MPH before going into
    turns 1 - 2.  At Daytona you don't need to brake going through the turns at a
    track like this.  All you want to do is be down by the yellow line as you go
    through turns 1 - 2 at around 188 - 190 MPH through the turns.  As you exit
    turn 2 you want to be up by the wall as you go down the backstretch reaching
    a speed to around 196 MPH before going in turns 1 - 2.  You want to go
    through turns 3 - 4 like you did when you went through turns 1 - 2 at around
    189 MPH.  Once you exit turn 4 you should be around 190 by the exit of the
    turn heading to the start/finish line.

    Strategy
    --------
    Alright let's get to how to get around the track known as "The Monster Mile"
    Dover Downs.  As you race coming out of turn 4 you want to be around 150 -
    153 MPH as you come off onto the frontstretch.  As you go down the
    frontstretch you will reach around 170 MPH before you brake to enter turns 1 -
    2.  When you slow down to go through turns 1 - 2 brake to around 146 - 151 MPH
    to get through turns 1 - 2.  As you exit turn 2 slide safely up by the wall
    as you go down the backstretch.  You will reach around 170 MPH before
    entering turns 3 - 4, and when you go through turns 3 - 4 slow down to around
    146 - 151 as you go through turns 3 - 4, be sure on the exit of turn 4 to get
    on the gas and hit it.

    As you come out of turn 4 you want to be around 144 - 146 MPH as you set up to
    go down the frontstretch.  Before heading into turns 1 - 2 you should be able
    to get up to around 170 MPH and as you head through turns 1 - 2 you want to be
    around 129 - 133 MPH.  As you exit turn 2 at 135 or better heading down the 
    backstretch you should be able to reach 180 MPH just like when you were on the 
    frontstretch before entering turns 3 - 4.  You want to take turns 3 - 4 like
    turns 1 - 2 around 129 - 133 MPH, and then back onto the fronstretch.

    --------
    As you exit out of turn 4 you should be around 160 - 163 MPH as you head onto
    the frontstretch.  As you go down the frontstretch you want to try to get
    around 196 MPH before entering turn 1.  When go through turn 1 you want to be
    around 156 - 162 MPH going through turn 1, but there'll be a bit of a short
    stretch before turn 2 in which you can gain a bit of speed but slow down to
    around 156 - 162 MPH through turn 2.  As you race down the backstretch it's
    quite long before you get to turn 3, but before you enter turn 3 you might be
    able to reach around 197 MPH before you go about entering turn 3.  As you go
    through turn 3 it's just like when you did in turns 1 - 2 around 156 - 162
    MPH then you'll have a small stretch before turn 4, and the same speed for
    turn 4 156 - 162 MPH before going back onto the frontstretch.

    Inaugral Race: 1989
    Event: Dodge/Save Mart 350
    
    Strategy
    --------
    When you race at this track you want to have good acceleration because that
    is one of the keys to doing well at a track like Infineon Raceway.  As you
    come out of turn 10 you want to be around 35 - 50 MPH going through the
    hairpin hugging the turn but not too  much because you don't want to hit the
    tires, as you head to the start/finish line.  As you cross the line there'll
    be a small turn to the left [turn 1] around 122 MPH as you approach turn 2
    you want to be around 98 - 102 MPH going through turn 2.  Turn 3 isn't that
    far off because you'll have to slow down to around 65 - 70 MPH going through
    turn 3 then onto a small stretch to turn 4.  Turn 4 slow down to around 88 -
    92 MPH and turn 5 isn't far off from turn 4.  To take turn 5 well slow down
    to around 65 - 75 MPH as you go down another stretch to turn 6.  Before you
    approach turn 6 you want to start slowing down just a few feet before
    entering turn 6 and go through the turn at least 75 - 80MPH while the next
    turn, turn 7 will come quickly.
    
    This is one of the tight turns at this 1.949 mile road course in which you
    have to slow down to around 45 - 50 MPH to go through this turn.  Next you'll
    have to take on the ESSES at around 88 - 100 MPH through those set of turns,
    before taking on turn 8.  As you approach turn 8 you want to slow down to
    around 138 MPH going through the turn and then have to set up for turn 9 at
    around 109 - 116 MPH.  After you get through turn 9 you will now have to get
    set up for turn 10 [last turn] which is a hairpin.  You will have to slow
    down just a few feet before pit road, to around 35 - 50 MPH as you go through
    turn 10.  Once you have gone through the last turn now it's time to head back
    to the start/finish line.

    Strategy
    --------
    Kansas is a 1.5 mile tri oval speedway that is similar to Chicago but you
    probably won't be able to go through the turns like you can at Chicago.  As
    you race out of turn 4 you will want to be around 160 - 164 MPH as you go
    down the frontstretch to the start/finish line.  You will reach around 192
    MPH before entering turns 1 - 2 and as you go through turns 1 - 2 you want to
    be around 161 - 163 MPH.  As you exit out of turn 2 you want to race up by
    the wall, as you go down the backstretch.  You should be able to reach up to
    around 188 MPH before entering turns 3 - 4.  When you go through turns 3 - 4
    you want to be around 161 - 163 MPH through those turns because if you go
    around 165 - 170 MPH you will most likely hit the wall before you exit turn 4.

    Like I said this is a flat 1.5 mile track that may be a bit tricky getting
    good lap times at but it's knowing how to get good speed through the flat
    turns.  As you come out of turn 4 you want to be around 152 - 157 MPH as you
    go down the frontstretch to the line.  As you go down the frontstretch you
    should be able to reach around 189 MPH before heading into turns 1 - 2.  When
    you get ready to go through turns 1 - 2 you want to slow down to around 152 -
    157 MPH to get onto the backstretch.  As you get on the backstretch get by
    the wall as you go towards turns 3 - 4.  You should be able to reach around
    183 MPH before you head into turns 3 - 4 but when you brake to go through
    turns 3 - 4 slow down to around 152 - 157 MPH going through turns 3 - 4 as

    --------
    A lap at Lowe's Motor Speedway can be fast around this 1.5 mile D-shaped
    oval.  As you head out of turn 4 be careful that you don't let the car get
    loose coming out of the turn.  You want to exit turn 4 at around 156 - 160
    MPH heading down the frontstretch towards the start/finish line.  You may be
    able to reach around 185 - 187 MPH before heading into turns 1 - 2 and as you
    do brake to around 161 - 163 through turns 1 - 2 as you go onto the
    backstretch.  As you race down the backstretch you should be able to reach
    around 185 - 188 MPH before you go through turns 3 - 4, and as you brake to
    go through turns 3 - 4 slow down to around 156 - 160 MPH but like I said for
    exiting turn 4 be sure not to get loose coming out of the turn because you
    really don't want that to happen.

    Events: Virgina 500 
            Old Diminion 500
    
    Strategy
    --------
    When racing at Martinsville you don't want to wait til around the last minute
    to brake but you want to brake at a certain point of the track so you can go
    about getting through the turns with ease.  As you come out of turn 4 you
    should be around 65 - 68 MPH as you exit turn 4 onto the frontstretch to the
    start/finish line.  Since both stretches are only 800 ft. you won't have much
    time before you will have to brake again for turns 1 - 2.  Use the paint on
    the walls to help you know when to brake for the entering of the turns.
    For example where it has NASCAR Racing Cup Series ends to start braking for
    turns 1 - 2.  Before you start to brake you should be able to reach around
    121 MPH and once you get to the end of where it has NASCAR Racing Cup series
    to brake for turns 1 - 2 to around 62 - 65 MPH through turns 1 - 2.
    
    As you exit off of turn 2 going down the backstretch, but you'll have to do
    like you done on the front stretch.  The only problem is that you'll have to
    use a different paint on the wall as a marker to slow down for turns 3 - 4.
    Just like on the frontstretch you should be able to reach around 118 - 121
    MPH, before going into turns 3 - 4.  Look for part of the concrete wall in
    black and use the end of that as a marker to slow down for turns 3 - 4.  Like
    in turns 1 - 2 slow down to around 62 - 65 MPH but should be able to gain a
    bit of speed as you exit out of turn 4 down the frontstretch again.

    173 MPH as you head onto the frontstretch to the start/finish line.  Before
    heading into turns 1 - 2 you should be able to reach around 201 MPH but as
    you get ready into head into turns 1 - 2 you want to slow down to around
    175 - 177 MPH through turns 1 - 2 going onto the backstretch.  When you head
    down the backstretch sling up near the wall but before you enter turns 3 - 4
    you should reach around 197 MPH before heading into turns 3 - 4.  As you go
    through turns 3 - 4 slow down to around 168 - 172 MPH going through turns 3 -

    Strategy
    --------
    New Hampshire is a track that is similar to Martinsville but the only thing
    that makes this track different from Martinsville is that this track is paved
    while Martinsville is paved with concrete.  With the relatively long
    straights at this track you don't want to get a blown engine before entering
    the turns because nobody likes getting a blown engine that can result in a
    DNF.  As you come out of turn 4 you want to be around 106 - 109 as you come
    out of turn 4 onto the frontstretch to the line.  Before you head into turns
    1 - 2 you should be able to reach around 150 MPH before heading through turns
    1 - 2.  As you slow down to take turns 1 - 2 you want to slow down to around
    95 - 102 MPH but the 95 - 99 MPH from turn 1 to turn 2 but get back on the
    gas around the middle to exit of turn 2.  Now you are going down the
    backstretch which you want to slide up by the wall going down the backstretch
    heading to turns 3 - 4.  Just like the frontstretch you should be able to
    reach around 147 - 150 MPH before heading into turns 3 - 4.  As you approach
    turns 3 - 4 you want to slow down to around 95 - 102 MPH but you'll want to
    do the same as mentioned on how to take turns 1 - 2 as you go through the
    turns back onto the frontstretch onto the frontstretch again.

    Since this track is a little tricky particularly that you can get around this

    MPH heading onto the frontstretch towards the line.  Before slowing down for
    turns 1 - 2 you should be able to reach around 168 MPH before entering turns
    1 - 2.  As you brake to go through turns 1 - 2 you want to slow down to around
    128 - 135 MPH as you reach the backstretch up by the wall.  As you go down
    the backstretch you will reach a speed of around 165 MPH before heading into
    turns 3 - 4.  As you get ready to brake to enter turns 3 - 4 you want to slow

    Strategy
    --------
    Racing at this 2.5 mile triangular track may require a bit of speed but you
    have to be sure to slow down good enough through the turns to be real good at
    this particular track.  As you come out of turn 3 you want to be around 150 -
    152 MPH as you exit turn 3 onto the frontstretch.  The frontstretch you can
    gain a lot of speed if you have a good car setup for Pocono to reach a good
    amount of speed before entering turn 1.  Before entering turn 1 you will reach
    around 199 MPH but you may start to brake at the 2 or 1 marker to get through
    turn 1.  You want to try to slow down to around 148 - 152 MPH through turn 1
    as you go onto the second stretch as you approach turn 2 "Tunnel Turn".
    
    Your speed should reach around 192 but I wouldn't try to get up that far
    because it may be a bit too fast but when you go through turn 2 "Tunnel Turn"
    you want to slow down to around 145 - 148 MPH to get through turn 2.  Now
    you'll go down the third stretch which is the shortest stretch on this track,
    you will reach around 179 MPH before heading through turn 3 at this unique
    track.  As you go through turn 3 you want to be around 146 - 148 MPH going
    through turn 3 back on your way to the frontstretch.

      Strategy:
      ---------
    Richmond International Raceway is a fast short track that can be a fun place
    to race at besides Bristol Motor Speedway.  As you race off of turn 4 you
    should exit turn 4 at around 105 - 108 MPH heading down the frontstretch
    heading towards the line.  You may have to brake around a 100 ft. before
    heading into turns 1 - 2.  Before heading into turns 1 - 2 you will reach
    around 146 MPH before you head through turns 1 - 2.  As you slow down to go
    through turns 1 - 2 you want to slow down to around 98 - 106 MPH as you go
    through turns 1 - 2, then onto the backstretch sliding as close to the wall
    as possible.  As you head down the backstretch you should be able to reach
    around 142 MPH before heading into turns 3 - 4.  You want to brake around a
    100 ft. before the yellow line at the beginning of turn 3 to around 98 - 106
    MPH as you head back to the line for a lap around RIR.

    Strategy
    --------
    Talladega Superspeedway was built to be the fastest, most competitive
    racetrack on the NASCAR curcuit.  This can be a fast track to get around and
    let's get to on how to get around this 2.66 mile racetrack.  As you come out
    of turn 4 you want to be around 188MPH as you head through the tri-oval and
    to the start/finish line.  Before you head into turns 1 - 2 you should be
    around 195MPH before heading in to turns 1 - 2.  As you race through turns 1 -
    2 you want to be around 191 - 194MPH.  When you exit out of turn 2 you want to
    drift up towards the wall heading down the backstretch.  Before you enter
    turns 3 - 4 you should be able to reach around 197MPH before heading in turns
    3 - 4.  When you race through turns 3 - 4 you want to be around 192 - 196MPH
    while racing through turns 3 - 4, then head through the frontstretch and the
    tri-oval then finally cross the start/finish line.  That's how you get around
    Talladega Superspeedway.

    Strategy
    --------
    Racing at the Texas Motor Speedway can be quite fast to race at, but you
    don't want to carry too much speed through the turns unless you want to hit
    the wall.  As you come out of Turn 4 you want to be around 169 MPH, as you
    head towards the start/finish line.  You will reach around 187 MPH before
    heading into Turn 1, but when you go through turns 1 - 2 at around 167 - 168
    MPH through the turns.  As you exit out of turn 2 you should be able to reach
    to around 184 MPH before entering Turn 3.  When you approach Turns 3 - 4,
    you want to do the same as you did in Turns 1 - 2 but you may want to slow
    down a bit to around 166 - 168 MPH as you go through turns 3 - 4.  As you
    exit turn 4 you want to be smooth on the exit of the turn as you head to the
    start/finish line.

    Event: Sirius Satellite Radio @ The Glen
    
    Strategy
    --------
    Racing at Watkins Glen can be fun to race at because it isn't anything like
    Infineon Raceway where there's like a turn almost every time after you make
    one.  As you come out of turn 11, you want to be around 95 - 109 MPH as you
    go onto the frontstretch to the start/finish line.  To be able to brake good
    enough for turn 1 start to brake just a few feet before you see the
    markers [3 2 1].  As you get ready for turn 1 you'll be able to reach to
    around 163 MPH, and then you'll have to slow down to around 70 - 75 MPH to
    take on turn 1.  After you have made it through turn 1, then you'll have to
    get ready for turn 2 with turn 3 not long after that.  When you get ready to
    go through turn 2 slow down to around 124 - 126 MPH going through turn 2,
    but with turn 3 slow down to around 120 - 123 MPH [don't be suprised if you
    have to slow down a bit more].  Then you have to get through turn 4 at around
    140 - 145 by the exit out of turn 4 going down one of two stretches, on this
    2.454 mile road course.
    
    Now you have to get ready for the "Inner Loop" where turns 5, 6, 7, 8 are
    located.  There will be markers in preparation to slow down for this "Inner
    Loop" starting with 600 [representing 600 ft.].  Start slowing down just a bit
    before the marker to around 79 - 82 MPH to take turns 5 - 6 with turns 7 - 8
    not long after 5 - 6.  You want to try to go through turns 7 - 8 at around
    89 - 92 MPH before entering turn 9.  To get through turn 9 good, keep your
    speed around 102 MPH and when you exit turn 9 get on the brake to around 108
    MPH on the exit on the second stretch of this road course.  You should be
    able to reach around 165 MPH before entering turn 10, but when you get ready
    for turn 10 start to slow down between the end of concrete wall and the 300
    ft. marker.  When you do slow down to around 90 - 94 MPH going through turn
    10 and onto a small stretch before turn 11.  As you get ready for turn 11
    slow down to around 95 - 109 MPH through turn 11 to go to the start/finish
    line again.

    8. Car Set-ups

    Here is a list of car setups for the 23 winston Cup tracks including the 
    Infield Road Courses at some of the tracks.  You'll might even find one for
    the Daytona Beach Course, that NASCAR raced at from 1948 - 1958 [before they
    started racing at Daytona Int'l Speedway].  These car set-ups for the regular
    tracks can be used in Quick Race, Season Mode, and Career Mode:

             in Quick Race as well as the Infield Road Courses at some 
             tracks.  Another small note is that two or three car-setups
             may cause the engine to blow (especially at New Hampshire
             Int'l Raceway).  Plus if you use the Daytona and Talladega
             set-ups in Career Mode with a very great engine with
             high numbers (ex: condtion--100  power--97) WILL RESULT
             in a blown engine.---

    11. Season Mode
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Season mode is like Career Mode but the only thing that makes season mode much
    different from Career Mode is that you don't have to worry about hiring pit
    crew or having to repair or build engines nor chasis.  This is basically like
    Quick Race but you can take part in a series of races to see if you can make
    a run for the NASCAR Winston Championship.  Also you can choose what driver
    you want to race as for this mode such as:  Kevin Harvick, Terry Labonte,
    Rusty Wallace, Cale Yarborough, Mike McLaughlin, or the car you created in
    the Create-A-Car option.
    
    In Season Mode you have 20 years to win as many championships or win races
    as you choose the settings just like in Career Mode like (12, 24, or 36 per 
    season) and the difficulty of the AI (Rookie, Veteren, Legend).
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    12. Career Mode
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------
    Part One: Introduction to Career Mode  
    -------------------------------------
    Career Mode in NASCAR Thunder 2003 you will have 20 years to try to accomplish
    a goal of 8 championships.  As you progress through each year you may/may not
    be able to unlock Thunder Plates when you win championships (ex. 1st
    Championship, 5th Championship, 8th Championship, and possibly others).  
    
    
    -------------------------------------
    Part Two: Getting your Career started
    -------------------------------------
    
    
    Starting off in Career
    ----------------------
    First you'll have to create-a-car but you WILL have to fill out the following
    information:
    
    
           First Name
           Last Name
           Birthday [Month / Day / Year]
           Race Team [example: Roush Racing]
    
    
    After you fill out the information the next step in create-a-car for Career
    Mode is to make a paint scheme that you would like to run throughout your
    Rookie Year, you can always later change the paint scheme later in the
    year.  Of course you'll also have to pick out what number out of the numbers
    available, as well as deciding if you want the decals anywhere from none - 
    complete.
    
    
    
    Crew
    ----
    Secondly, you'll have to sign on your pitcrew.  The pitcrew consists of the
    following crew members:
    
    
           Crew Chief
           Gasman
           Rear Tire Changer
           Front Tire Changer
           Rear Tire Carrier
           Front Tire Carrier
           Spottor
           Catchcan Man
           Jackman
    
    
    The best way of deciding who you want to be on your pitcrew is by how their
    experience is with each of their fields.  They might be able to give you
    real good pit-stops and possibly get you back out on the track to get you
    your first win in your first year.  If not just keep on trying until you do
    but here's a tip:  If the crew goes quite sometime unhappy you can fire them
    and hire replacements for them.
    
    
     Sponsors
     --------
    Third, you'll have to sign on sponsors for extra support and earn more money
    to be able to put money towards things such as R&D.  Here is the kind of
    sponsors that you'll need to sign on for each section of the car:

     ENGINES
     -------
    
               ----[COMING SOON]---
    
    
     CHASIS
     ------
    
               ----[COMING SOON]---

    13. Codes/Secrets
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There are a few codes/secrets in NASCAR Thunder 2003 for the PlayStation2
    and do work with the Nintendo GameCube as well as for the Microsoft X-Box:

    14. New Features
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In NASCAR Thunder 2003, EA Sports has added a few new features in this year's
    version of NASCAR Thunder.  Here is a list of things that EA Sports has
    featured in NASCAR Thunder 2003:
    
    
    
    Victory Lane Celebration
    ------------------------
    Whenever you win a race you'll be able to celebrate in the Victory Circle
    aka Winner's Circle with your pit crew.
    
    
    Pit Crew Mistakes
    -----------------
    Another feature that EA has decided to put into this year's version of NASCAR
    Thunder was the Pit Crew mistakes.  At certain points when you make a pitstop
    during a race there may be a possibility that one of the members of the pit
    crew may make a mistake.
    
    
    Burnouts/Victory Lap
    --------------------
    This is the same as Victory Lane Celebration (whenever you win a race) but
    when you win, the moment you see the stats of the Top-10 finishers you'll be
    prompted to press Start to enter Celebration.  From there you'll be able to 
    do burnouts or do a victory lap, or anything you can think of.
    
    
    Lightning Challenges
    --------------------
    This feature in NASCAR Thunder 2003 allows you to live some NASCAR's Greatest
    moments that occured in the past few years, such as Terry Labonte's second 
    "Winston" win at the Lowe's Motor Speedway, or Elliot Sadler's win at the 2001
    Food City 500 where he started 38th and went on to win the race.  The 
    challenges may be of an event where a driver had a chance to win a race but 
    didn't but you can use take the chance to take them to victory lane.
    
    
    Thunder License
    ---------------
    In this feature you can learn the layout of the 23 Winston Cup tracks on the
    schedule.  All you have to do is choose a track that you want to see what you
    can do but before you can go to a track you must choose a driver as your
    "Coach".  Once you do so then you'll be able to go to the track but before
    you start you'll hear Richard Petty give you some background about that 
    particular track.  The moment you press start Richard "The King" Petty will
    tell how to get around the track and the moment that one lap is done through
    that's when the LICENSE begins.  You have 3 levels that you will have to go
    through but after you get the time to beat that level an assist will be
    disabled.
