Hint: Pace car: After coming out of the pits, press Brake. Reverse
back into the pits and hit the pace car at about 100 mph. If you
hit it hard enough, it will move. Steer it into any oncoming traffic.
Hint: Big air: At Sears Point there is a hill with a huge Valvoline
logo on it. Drive up the hill and you will fly into the air --
and your car may catch on fire. Raider81JB.
Go past the first hill at Sears Point (the one that if you go
too fast you will ramp and hit the wall) to the Valvoline jump,
but do not ramp it. Turn around and go to the left side of the
screen next to the wall and accelerate. Go forward until you ramp
(this jump can hurt your car more than the Valvoline jump). You
can do 720s, nose dives, half flips, etc. Triplehmag.
When you get hit and are flying in the air, press Square
+ Left Analog-stick Up to spin around and fly. If you get
enough air, you can stay in flight for at least a minute. Posereliminator7
Glitch: Drive through objects: Select two player mode and select Richmond. Start on
practice so you will have as much time as possible. Go out of
the pits, turn around, and go back into the pits. Make sure you
go all the way out of the pits before doing this. Go down the
pits and towards the entrance of the pits. There will be a large
gap with a white van near by. Ram into it hard enough so that
your front end is sticking up. Then have the other player ram
into you. If done correctly, you will go into the middle of the
track. You will go through every object in there. This can also
be done at the Daytona, Talladega, and other tracks. Triplehmag.
Glitch: Crash and flip on grass: There is a glitch in the grass in front of the pit
on the Michigan track. Pick up speed around the last corner and
go into the grass directly in front of the pit wall. Your car
will crash and do lots of flips. Scott Kavanagh.
