The Andretti Racing wiki last edited by cxhgrunt on 02/14/13 04:57AM View full history

Published by EA Sports, Andretti Racing, gives the player the ability to race both Indy and Stock cars.  The player will race against a mix of 15 authentic and fictional drivers at a time, on 16 different race courses.  The majority of the courses in the game are road and street courses, all fictitious with exception to the Calder Park Thunderdome, which shares a name likeness with an Australian race track.

Andretti Racing is seen as a precursor to the NASCAR Franchise that EA launched a year after Andretti Racing was released, under direction by Scott Orr.  The Andretti family involved themselves in the development of the game, Jeff Andretti specifically contributed to the design of the game.
