==============================================================================
                                   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 sponsor.

   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 may terminate the contract.

    Kurt started back in 2000 in the #97 car sponsored by John Deere. He
    was one of the rookie candidates in 2001 and grabbed 3rd place in
    rookie standings and 27th in point standings. Kurt's 2002 season has
    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.

    Dale is one of the greatest racers of all time in NASCAR history. A
    native from Kannapolis, North Carolina was known for his rough racing
    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.

   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.

   This is Kevin Harvick's Busch car for the 2003 season, but I included
   his last year Busch stats and he was in the #2 ACDelco car and went
   on to win the 2001 Busch Series Championship, and finished 9th in the
   Winston Cup series that same year.

   In 2003, Kevin Harvick will share the driving duty for the #21 Payday
   Chevrolet with Johnny Sauter. Johnny Sauter is piloting both this #21
   and the #43 Channellock for the Busch series.

   He is known to be the king of restarts and he can pass a few cars at

   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.

   Jerry Nadeau got released from the #25 car early in the 2002 season
   (Nemechek is the driver now). He has only one win in his career and
   it first came in Atlanta in 2000 fall race, he almost won at the same
   place in 2001 but he ran out of fuel in the final lap. Jerry is
   currently driving the #01 U.S. Army Pontiac owned by the MB2 Motorsports
   Recently, Jerry was in a devastating wreck during practice at Richmond
   that put him in a hospital.

   Mike Wallace will be substituting for Nadeau while Nadeau is trying to
   recover as quickly as possible to get back in racing again. Boris Said
   will take care of the road courses and Mike Skinner who just got released
   form the #4 Kodak will handle some races and Brian Vickers will be behind
   the wheel for the remaining 4 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.

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.

Talladega Superspeedway
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.

Daytona International Speedway
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

         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.

Texas 2-step

Texas Motor Speedway
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.

         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.

         stretch your fuel 3 more laps to win the race.

         [ ] Finish 1st
         [ ] No reckless driving
         [ ] 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.

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.

Bobby Labonte

         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.

Spin Cycle (Veteran)
Michigan 400
Michigan International Speedway
Dale Jarrett

         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.

         Casey Mears made it past Matt Kenseth just before the finish
         line to make it into the biggest race of the year, the Daytona

         [ ] Finish 15th or better
         [ ] Stay above 25th 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.

         Dale Jarrett and Kurt Busch fought hard on worn tires in the
         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.

         [ ] Finish 1st
         [ ] Stay on the track
         [ ] 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.

         With 2 laps to go make the pass on Gordon to get the win.

         [ ] Finish 1st
         [ ] Stay on the track
         [ ] 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.

         [ ] Stay on the track
         [ ] No reckless driving
         [ ] Stay above 11th or better

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 above 15th or better
         [ ] Finish 1st
         [ ] 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.

New England 300
New Hampshire International Speedway
Ward Burton

         After a huge win in Daytona, Ward Burton won his second race of
         the season in the New Enland 300. Starting 3rd, you will only have
         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.

Carolina Dodge Dealers 400
Darlington Raceway
Ricky Craven

         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
         go.

         [ ] Finish 1st
         [ ] Stay on the track
         [ ] 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
         around Ryan Newman and Matt Kenseth to get him the win.

         [ ] Finish 1st
         [ ] Stay above 13th or better
         [ ] Stay on the track
         [ ] No reckless driving

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.

         [ ] No car damage
         [ ] Stay above 17th or better
         [ ] Stay on the track

Key: Like the "avoid-the-wreck" challenge in rookie and veteran, get through
     the pile with no damage to your car. You will be racing on Daytona and
     of course, you will be going at high speed. The wreck will occur at
     Turn 1 of the track. Slow down and follow the undamaged car in front of
     you and draft with him to the finish line.

         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.

I'm staying out (Legend)
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.

The Rock
Pop Secret 400
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!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's about time
Pop Secret 400
North Carolina Speedway
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.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4 new Eagles
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.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lapper
Chevy Rock N Roll 400
Richmond International Raceway
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.
