race with the desired driver. Select any track in
quick race mode under the veteran difficulty
setting. Win the race to unlock one paint scheme.
To get more, go to another race track or the same
one at a different time (for example, Bristol day
or night). This will not work if its the same
time of day, such as the two Richmond races or
the two Loudon races.
Make sure all races are set on ten percent race
length. Drive into the grass and spin out on lap
four, rather than crash. This way, your car is
not damaged and you are better able to draft. It
also works on lap 7 of all 26 lap races under the
10 percent setting, and on lap 12 or 13 of 39 to
40 lap races.
Daytona: Easy Win
Make sure the race is set on ten percent race
length. Then, cause a crash on lap four. If done
correctly, there should be a caution. Go into the
pits, and ignore that fact if no one else also
enters. You will probably be last, but there will
soon be another caution and the leaders will come
in. Stay out and do not pit. After the stop, you
should be in first or second place. You will run
low on gas, but you will not run out. Block and
you will be able to win.
