NASCAR Kart Racing, the first and only NASCAR racing title available for the Nintendo Wii, is now available at retail in North America for $39.99. With the Daytona 500 now in the can, this could be the perfect way to virtually complete those remaining 48 laps — as a cartoon caricature, of course.
Designed exclusively for the Wii, NASCAR Kart Racing lets players grab the steering wheel as a famed NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver and speed through treacherous landscapes, wind around rocky cliffs, jump rivers and dodge falling boulders. Up to four players can go head-to-head via split screen in a mad dash to the checkered flag.
Each licensed driver has personal attributes that will determine how the team performs on a given course, so choosing a driver and teammate are key to success. In addition to the 14 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers, NASCAR Kart Racing players can take the wheel as one of 10 original animated characters known as Outsiders. These characters are themed and hilarious in their own right, much like unique characters from a movie such as Disny/Pixar’s CARS.
The courses in NASCAR Kart Racing feature a vast range of exhilarating terrain. Experience 24 entertaining race layouts that wrap through deserts, freeways, back roads, canyons, junkyards and more. Drivers will also push the pedal to the metal inside and around four popular NASCAR tracks: Daytona International Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, Dover International Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway. Each track in NASCAR Kart Racing can be reversed to provide two unique racing experiences.
