Videogame NASCAR racing is another beast entirely, in that it's usually not an exercise in extreme tedium and a test of patience. Quite the contrary actually, the act of racing around the oval at 180+ miles per hour is actually quite exhilarating. Throw in 42 other drivers and your adrenaline will be spewing out of your eyelids. But for multiplayer NASCAR, the subject of this preview, the field is contained to 12 drivers online. According to EA, they were shooting for 16 players but just couldn't run the game at a smooth 30 frames per second.
