No restrictor plate at Talladega

Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. With a text editor, edit the "gdbfile" file in the "/season04/tracks/talladega/easports500" directory in the game folder. Find the "RestrictorPlate = true" line and change the value to "false".

Smoke Screen Lightning challenge

Once the challenge starts, start slowing down, fall into the inside line behind Jimmie Johnson, and stay there. As you get to Turn 1, Jeff Burton will send Dale Jarrett spinning into traffic. When this happens, immediately slam on your brakes and take your time. Be careful not to drop out of contention when on the brakes. If you see a car up against the wall for a long time and think it is going to stay there, accelerate. You can drive through the wreck unharmed. Note: This may take a few attempts, as the wreck may not be cleared easily.

Easy win

During a longer race, race backwards and try to take every racer out. Make sure they are in flames. Pause game play and check the "Race Stats" periodically to see who is still on the track. After that, turn back around and race with no competition. Note: When you are checking the Race Stats, if you see "Off" under any racer, that indicates that they will be in the pits for a long period of time.

Answer from ProdigySnipr

When you get into a corner, stick to the low side of the race track and don't top. You will work through the pack better.
