GamesRadar Exclusive: NASCAR The Game 2011 driver reveals

Every car in a NASCAR race is the end result of millions of dollars of R&D, tuning, testing and teamwork between a small army of mechanics, engineers, and promoters. But while the team handles a huge amount of the logistics, it's the drivers that everyone loves. In the end they're the ones behind the wheel, piloting the machine for hundreds of laps and bearing the burden of making sure everyone else's hard work doesn’t go to waste.
