    is this one any good ?
    i'm not the biggest fan of Nascar, but if there was a properly done game about it, I would be interested to try it out

    how does it compare to iRacing oval experience?

    The game is simcade, if you are not expecting a full blown sim racer you may end up having fun on the ovals. The road tracks are somewhat weaker in terms of handling and ai. As for the 2018 season, the publishers did a pretty nice thing. Instead of a cut and paste Heat 3 we get the Monster Energy 2018 championship as an affordable dlc.

    Must say that took away some of the bad taste of the previous game and I am looking forward to their further development.

    My main advice, race at 100+ ai and at least 13% races, better yet 25%, because the short races do not show the true potential for fun racing.

    I agree with Ruy Horta. If you just want to jump in and drive, it's great.
    If you like to tweak the car's settings and work the garage, it's not there.
    It does have great Career and Championships.

    Not even simcade I’d say 75%arcade 25% sim. It’s fun but needs better physics heat 3 should be good.
