Driver personalities, tense fender-to-fender tactics, and the white-knuckle anxiety of NASCAR's circuit speeds onto the PS in NASCAR 99. Features include 37 real-life cars (24 on the track in any given race), 17 licensed tracks, night racing, split-screen mode for two-player action, and single race or seasonal gameplay modes. Driver statistics are based on the 1997 season, and the NASCAR point system is utilized to track standings. Skilled driving in Championship mode will unlock legendary drivers like Bobby Allison, Cale Yarborough, and Richard Petty.
Single Race mode lets you choose a driver, car, and track, as well as adjust pit mode, race length, damage, physics/AI setting, display, breakdown, or yellow flag options, before racing against 23 computer-controlled drivers at a specific venue. The Single Race Weekend menu lets you spend an entire weekend of activities at your favorite track, with car setups, practice, and qualifying preceding the race. Car setups feature settings for speedometer, fuel, wheel lock, rear spoiler, shocks, tire pressure, weight jacking, and transmission. Championship season offers a full-event package of 18-races to establish the top driver, while split-screen action allows two players to select specific cars and a track to compete head-to-head. ~ Nick Woods, All Game Guide
