The Winston Cup 1998 mod is here! From Splash N’ Go and Studio Speed, comes the all new Winston Cup98 mod. With almost 100 cars, including every entry from the 1998 Daytona 500, this mod depicts the cars that ran in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series from the 1996 to 1999 seasons with 4 individual models as well as one of the most detailed damage models ever for this sim. As an added bonus, the download for this mod also includes a bunch of extra Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt cars, including the special Winston All Star schemes for both drivers. As their site is still active and well click below to redirect to their site and get their incredible mod! As carsets come available they will be available in the car sets section of this site.
Tons of new tracks posted into the “Short Tracks” section. I’ve also updated the Project Wildfire tracks section as well as the 1970 era tracks section with some new entries.
I’ve added several project wildfire tracks to the tracks section (in their own tab). Most are their IROC Series creations. As well, I’ve also created a new section dedicated to the tracks of the 1970ish season/era which created by multiple wonderful track creators/artists from the community. Check out the tracks section for all these great tracks!
I’ve added all the Revamped Reloaded tracks to their own section under the tracks tab up above. I did not include their descriptions, but the files are indicated by version/year/etc. More to come from several defunct sites. Links section updated with the SimRacingDesign master list links. As I finish the tracks section up there will also be more links added to target specific websites that are still active as well (and several still making brand new tracks!)
I’ve been making a large backlog of files that have in the past or may in the future vanish from websites that may go down. I plan to dump them on the website here, soon. As far as the tracks go, I’ve got about 500 of them. I’m going to organize them into sections, but I’m not going to describe every single one of them individually as I’d get to about 20 and never want to do it again. lol. Anyways, look for that update soon. They’ll be organized in sections of either the track name or by the creators of a particular series of tracks. Also making a backlog of cars/carsets for the game as well so they’re not potentially lost over the course of time.
It turns out NRatings webpage got attacked and in that attack resulted in the website going down. Everything is now all back up and online, however, along with Mathieu’s homepage which has moved to a new location and also includes a brand new version 4.0.0 of the NRatings Software. To import real world data you WILL need this new version as old version will no longer function (though you can still use them to edit and bulk edit ratings in your car sets).
You can find Mathieu’s new site here: https://www.tjsoft.be/nratings/
NRatings website recently went down so I’ve decided to host the software here. I’ve contacted the creator because as of now, while the program is still quite useful to use for editing and bulk editing, the real world data importing is currently down. You can find and download this piece of software in the Utilities section on the top bar of the webpage.
I’ve added both Score4 & RPM (RacePointsManager) to the Utilities section. I spent forever earlier today trying to find Score4 with a download location that was still active. Now it’s easy to find for everyone. Anyways, these programs are what leagues would use to keep track of points and export HTML files of the results/standings/etc. They’re both useful as well if you’re just offline racing. I’ve found them dead useful as the championship setup within the game would force you (unless you put up a fight) to run each race in your schedule with the same parameters. These programs also give you a multitude of stats. My personal pick: RacePointsManager, but both are the bomb.
Head to the Utilities section up top if you’re looking for one of these programs.
I plan to do some updates to this website fairly soon. I actually was going to over the past week & weekend but just haven’t gotten around to it. I did get the overall look of the page finished and then ran outta spare time. With NR2003 sites periodically dropping off the face of the Earth here and there and with some files becoming difficult to find I intend to make this a much larger home for all the mods past and present along with any car sets I can create and/or get my hands on. For the websites that are still up and alive I’m planning to make back-ups to all their files ready to find a new home here if necessary. Sucks when we can’t find the things we’re looking for. It’s clear this old beast still has a massive following and updates all the time. When free time allows I’ll start uploading here again. Unfortunately right now I have some business matters to attend to. My parents have developed needs for further care as they have aged and I am not able to provide it for them. Furthermore, they have made it clear they do not want to be put in a home. They want to stay in their own house. I thought that wasn’t going to be possible but as it turns out there is a local service here called Home Care Assistance Oakland, and they are right at Home Care Assistance 9050 W Olympic Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90211 (310) 857-4731 which is actually close to my work. I already talked to them for a bit, and it looks like exactly what I needed. They’re going to be pretty happy when they hear the news, that it’ll all be sorted out just fine.
In the mean time enjoy a video of me winning my one and only real life race this year. Despite having one of the fastest cars, I spent most of the year with my car facing the wrong direction, getting taken out, bad luck year. Ah well. At least I got a win on the last night! I’m the Red/White/Blue AMC tribute painted #39
I’ve added the once hosted at superspeedway.net Nextel 2005 Update along with the One Week Later update to the Utilities Section. If there are any other abandoned files you’re trying to find or perhaps files that are abandoned that you have and would like to see hosted somewhere, feel free to contact me!
