Corner Speeds For Tracks

These are my recommended speeds you need to get down to at the beginning of the 
turns.  I only do turns 1 and 3 because turns 2 and 4 aren't needed because they 
are 
apart of turns 1 and 3.

ATLANTA
Turn 1- 165-175 mph
Turn 3- 165-175 mph
NOTE:  Go slower on worn tires.

BRISTOL
Turn 1- 100 mph
Turn 3- 100 mph

CALIFORNIA



CHICAGOLAND



DARLINGTON
Turn 1- 145 mph
Turn 3- 135 mph
NOTE:  For turn 3, get down to whatever speed you feel comfortable with.

I will get more as soon as I find them out.  You can go to Thunder License to check 
out what they say, but I like to be the judge of the corner speeds.  I will include 
the fantasy courses also, as soon as I figure them out.

TIPS

Martinsville / Richmond- If a guy comes to your inside right before turn 3, lightly 
push him over to the left.  He will either run into the pit or blow his engine by 
smacking the yellow barrier that seperates the pit from the track.  At Richmond, 
the 
yellow barrier is in turn 4.  You have to wait until turn 4 to push him left.

Infineon- On the first hill,  they break alot.  You don't have to slow down quite 
as 
much.  Get to the left of the field and slowly, but faster than them, go up the 
hill.  On the straightaway before the hairpin turn, get to the inside away from the 
pit.  They slow down alot sooner than you should.  When they start breaking, you 
should just let off the gas.  When you are close enough, break and be on the inside 
(you should already be on the inside).  Get good acceleration off the turn and away 
you go.  I got fifth place my rookie year at Infineon following these techniques.

Daytona / Talladega- During your first pit stop, change right tires only.  On 
second 
pit, change left tires only.  Go back and forth between the two sets.  During a 
caution flag, you might just want to change all tires.  Also, when the cars pull 
off 
to go to the pits and you are too, go next to them, not behind them.  They brake so 
early it isn't even funny.  You should just let off the gas.

Darlington- The cars pull off to go to the pit too early.  Wait until you are about 
done with turn 3.  Then sharply turn off.  This isn't a good idea if you have worn 
tires like I accidentally did during the Carolina Dodge Dealers 400 my rookie year 
in my career.  My right side smashed into the yellow barrier.  Three guys were 
around me and they were all wrecked.  Two of my teammates were in the wreck with 
me.  I came back and got 9th place behind Jeff Gordon.

Michigan / California / Chicagoland / Kansas / Las Vegas- At turn 1,  most of the 
guys start slowing down for turn 2 on the outside.  Go on the inside and pass alot 
of cars.  Just get ready to break for turn 2!!!!!
