    The NASCAR part was known(90% sure it was last summer), this is just the first time you get to see some boring left turns in action though.

    Nascar is awesome so shaddup all you haters. say what you will about the games but N09 is alot of fun if you get a group together that can actually race well

    but you lucky bastards get it while us with a 360 still have to wait for company to take over from EA (im not complaining I hate Gran Turismo) and make a true NASCAR game again. oh and those car models are terrible and it only looks like there maybe 10 cars and not a full 43 car field

    How exciting could a NASCAR game be? All you do is go in circles for 3 hours and the first one to survive the 20 car pile up and cross the checkered line gets the honor of being world's fastest redneck. I'd rather watch 2 snails with Parkinson's race a turtle on crack from one end of a football field to the other, now that'd be entertaining.

    The oval tracks have been in GT for a couple of games now, so no real surprise they'd put some actual stock cars in there to drive on them.
    Not a fan of turning left for 400 laps though, I appreciate it being difficult to do but still isn't the most exciting way of driving around.

    wrong (and I know what game youre referring to) NT2004 was awesome and Nascar 09 is fun as hell once you get used to it

    and MC Why do you really care man? youve told me you dont do racing games period. and just cause a sport doesnt appeal to you doesnt mean you need to bash the hell out of it. try going to a race once and then tell me it was enjoyable as hell

    so he can't voice his negative opinions about nascar games, but you can voice your negative opinions about gran turismo.

    yup. sounds perfectly fair to me.

    people can criticize racing games if they don't like racing games, yeah? he was a bit harsh, but he's entitled to his opinion. I think. I hope?

    I love gran turismo games (aside from the PSP version) and many other racing games, but I personally cannot stand watching a nascar race. it's boring to me. and the circle tracks in GT have always bored me too. I've even been to races when I was younger. bored me as well.

    I won't be touching the nascar elements of GT5. I have better things to do than push a stick left all day.

    Ugh. I'm a fan of racing games but not of Nascar.

    Didn't realize Nascar was going to get thrown into GT5, well the good thing is that is one less game I have to buy now.

    If they put all the oval tracks in that have the little infield track sections that'd be good, those are always very tricky circuits and a good challenge to race around.

    Why won't you buy it... it's not like the whole game is about Nascar.

    That's just like saying "Oh I won't eat Ice-cream anymore cause one flavor is blue colored"

    like Ice cream, Gran Turismo 5 will have different flavors just try it out and find one you like :) 

    not to be disrespectful or anything


    plus like the other cars in the game we can use the Nascar Vehicles in mixed races.

    so it won't be boring just stupid looking :lol

    Hmm that means when I get GT5 I can play the Nascar races by taping down the left stick? Sounds... fun.

    I am all for this. Grab a box of crayons, Crayola 64 count, start with the lightest shade of blue and work your way up to the darkest. You gotta chew each one a good 20 times to really get the full scope of the taste though. When you're done let us know and remember take a pic of yourself afterward and please be sure to smile.


    We'll be waiting.
