In Dirt Track Racing 2, players race against 14 other vehicles with three classes of cars: pro stock, late model and modified. In addition to driving, players can test their crew chief abilities by adjusting springs, shocks, tire pressure, stagger and more to create the fastest racing machine on the track. Competing on tracks like Terre Haute, Knoxville Raceway and Eagle Raceway, players are challenged to aggressively change racing techniques and tactics as grooves develop and change on the track.
Players will have the option to choose form two different game modes – Career and Arcade. In Career mode players can experience a real racing career by purchasing new vehicles, making upgrades, repairing damages and paying entry fees. In Arcade mode, players can quickly and easily race in any event, on any track with any vehicle.
Dirt Track Racing 2 also features the option to record your race and show it to friends via the Internet. The most exciting feature is the opportunity to change camera angles to show races and collisions from different camera perspectives. Also, players can see dirt splatter onto their helmet’s visor and they can clear their view with a tear-off.
The closest thing to actually racing on dirt, Dirt Track Racing 2 stunningly recreates awesome effects such as lighting and particle debris; exhaust and smoke from blown engines; realistic damage modeling that affects vehicle performance, and tear-offs to clear the driver’s view of the track. Interactive race commentary builds drama and excitement throughout the races.
Additional features include multi-player support over Internet or LAN and DirectSound sound that enables players to hear the roar of the crowd, the growl of the engines and metal hitting metal collisions.
