IV.  Beat The Heat Strategy

This section will go through challenge by challenge and give you a
few tips for each to complete it.  I have completed every BTH
challenge except for the last one, The Elusive Eighth II in the bonus
set.  So, here we go...

1.  Super Speedway Set
    1.  First Turn:  You have to get through turns 3 and 4 at
        Daytona at a fast speed.  Don't get the car on the apron, or
        jerk the car down the track, but you want to stat near the
        bottom of the track.  Ease the car through the turns.  By
        ease, don't old the left button in, but keep tapping it.
    2.  Multiple Bends:  Same thing as 'First Turn', but at
        Talladega and has a few more turns.  Just do the same
        things...ease the car through, don't go on the apron, etc.

V.   Race The Pro Lap Times

This is how this section will work.  I will play the game in this
mode and whenever I 'Race The Pro' and win (getting a checkered
flag), I'll post the lap time that beat him.  This will be accurate,
as it's always the same lap time that the pro runs.

And here's a tip:  If you're having trouble at a certain track, use
this mode, look for the best driver at this track, and follow him
around in the same racing line.  Watch how he enters the corner,
where he slows down (to pick out braking points), etc.

Driver               Track                   My Lap Time
