NASCAR Thunder 2004 puts gamers behind the wheel in a world where grudges and alliances mean the difference between victory lane and disaster. You re no longer just racing a track, youre racing a pack of 42 real world stars who think for themselves, remember your every move, and arent afraid to pay you back. Revenge may be around the next corner or at the next race, as you scream through 23 authentic tracks or hone your road racing skills on 11 fantasy tracks. The key to success is building alliances that carry from race to race and season to season in an improved career mode that challenges drivers to manage sponsors, teams, garages, and crews while building a 20-year racing legacy. Online or on your own, racing just became a contact sport.
