Go Old School

NASCAR Legends was a PC release in the late 90s’ that took a player back to the glory days of stock car racing. Richard Petty’s Plymouth and David Pearson’s Mercury were just two options that could be raced on a variety of old race tracks, such as the Nashville Fairgrounds and Riverside Raceway.

Other releases such as NASCAR Thunder 2003 and NASCAR Thunder 2004 brought these drivers and tracks back as achievements, and it would be great to see these achievements again on a next-gen console. Just like EA Sports did with their “Lightning Challenges,” let the player go back in time to relive major NASCAR moments like the 1976 Daytona 500 or the 2000 Winston 500 at Talladega. Or, if the player wishes, let them run a single race or a season with the car/track of their choice.

Players with a taste for old school racing shouldn’t have to dig out their old consoles to enjoy the glory days. An old school feature on a newer NASCAR game/console would be a great investment.
