NHRA Drag Racing: Pro Stock Cars & Trucks Review
By Jerri Wright
One genre of racing which has not gotten much attention is NHRA drag racing. We've seen NASCAR, CART, and F1 simulations throughout all time, but not very many games have focused on pure speed racing. NHRA Drag Racing: Main Event is actually a compilation of two games: NHRA Drag Racing 2 Gold and NHRA Pro Stock. You'll find almost every kind of racing here: top fuel, funny car, and pro stock cars and trucks, and the game carries the premier license in drag racing today. Will NHRA Drag Racing: Main Event break the land speed record, or just break?
NHRA Drag Racing: Main Event features the cars, drivers, and tracks of the 2000 NHRA season. Most of the current drivers are here, each representing either top fuel (fast), funny car (kinda fast), or pro stock (like real cars). Every track is also present, although it's not to terribly difficult to model each different venue: the logos, stands, and backgrounds are really the only noticeable difference, since it's just a drag strip. But, it's still nice to have all the locations available for your racing pleasure. The level of difficulty can be adjusted: you can race in novice, arcade, or full mode. Arcade is probably the best choice for everyone, as you hire a crew chief to handle all of the necessary adjustments, and you get to experience the full racing procedure.
