Before I give my opinion (I bought this game), here is the trailer:

I bought this the day of release to see whether it would be a genuine challenger to iRacing or even some older titles like Dirt Track Racing. First thing that really struck me is that it is a console port and all on-screen prompts are for console buttons you might not have on PC… This means you have to feel your way around selecting and deselecting options you don’t want until you stumble across the right input… It did support my wheel though (Thrustmaster TS-PC). Other than that, it’s fun – and IMHO a step up on the recent NASCAR Heat titles – but the physics do leave a lot to be desired, as does the career. Graphics are okay, sound is basic (and annoying, at times). The very thought of making a pass around the outside (even after Patch 2) leaves me wondering how much Tony Stewart was actually involved with this?

Wait for a sale.

Patch 1 was deployed on release day while Patch 2 came out yesterday:

Patch 1

Various physics adjustments / tuning
Other fixes and improvements
