When you are at the beginning of a race (rolling start), turn around and drive head on at other racers. You may have to do this repeatedly. Note: The yellow flag option must be off. This does not always work, but when it does it will result in an easy first place win.
Easy pole position for Daytona and Talladega
When qualifying for a Daytona or Talladega race, turn off braking assists. This will allow your car to reach maximum speed, resulting in a pole position every time. This works in all race modes.
Easy "Full Throttle" achievement
Go to "Race Now", choose a truck race, set the length to 100%, and choose Bristol as the track. Turn all damage, flags, and wear off. Start the race and drive. You will literally drive through the other trucks on the track. The race is 200 laps and should only take about 45 minutes to complete. When you win, you will be at least 20 laps ahead and get an easy 100 gamer points.
Choose "Race Now" then select the Craftsman truck class. Choose the Bristol race track. Then, turn off "Collisions", "Flags" and "Damage". Continue and choose a truck. Start the race. Line your truck up with the wall so it is parallel. Tape RT down so that you are accelerating and the walls will guide your truck around the track, giving you lap times of about 16 or 17 seconds. Allow the game to run in that state to unlock the achievement easily.
