A solid Nascar racing game that places more emphasis on the adrenaline rush than realism, Konami's Bill Elliott's Nascar Challenge is a great arcade-style racing game that also offers plenty of options to keep die-hard fans happy. Endorsed by one of the most celebrated Nascar champions ever, the game features all 8 of the US' most famous Nascar courses, each of which is complete with a short description, along with Bill's personal best time for that track. Although there are only 3 cars you can choose from, you can change their engine type, adjust the gear ratio, spoiler angle, and tire stagger to your heart's content before starting the race. Play modes include practice, single race, and championship season. You can choose between automatic and manual gears, as well as turn the damage module on and off.

Compared to the best racing sims, e.g. Papyrus' Nascar Racing, BENC comes up a bit short on realism and graphics detail, but the overall car handling and damage presentation (skids, crashes, etc.) is excellent. Camera angles are somehow completely missing from the game, so you only have the standard behind-the-wheel perspective to choose from. Nevertheless, BENC offers a lot of fun and some very challenging tracks that should keep Nascar fans occupied for hours. Thumbs up!
