NASCAR Racing 3


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! So after a very productive week post an exciting Bristol race and buying Talladega tickets, I  finished my 2016 set of Sprint Cup cars. After a week of testing, and a change of my rating system.


Here's some pics for everyone.




So I did something I hadn't done before, gone farther than the Cup series! Here are 40 Xfinity Series cars I made over the last month. I'm relieved that I can move on.




One thing I've also been doing is updating the tracks. The game is very dated with tracks, and theres a nice little modding community to fill the gaps in the series from 1999 to now. With mods, the track images and info become very inconsistent. So I took it upon myself to fix this. With my 40 tracks, I updated the "trkinfo" and "trkshot" files


(yes, the Indy car track)


Every year, I edit the calendar file to reflect the changes to the Sprint Cup schedule. With those mods, the race logos range from "pixelated" to "none". I went through and fixed that for every Cup and Xfinity race this year.



So I've been doing a lot of work on it, and I'm really glad it's all over.


But I wanted to go even further for what I consider one of the best games ever.


Download the entire game, my mods and all, right here.

Duuuuuuuuude this makes me wish I didn't have a metered internet connection because I would download this in a heartbeat (maybe later though). This looks so much fun! NASCAR video games haven't been that great in recent years, but seeing this has me excited. Nice work!

So in that download is a completely playable version with my 2016 mod. I took out the 1999 tracks and cars to save space.


i almost, and still might, named this thread "I literally uploaded an entire NASCAR game for you all to download"

I'm experiencing problems. 


I downloaded the game, put it in the right folder, and the game seemed to be working. 


I went into single race mode and chose Bristol-Night. 


I clicked go to track and the screen went black for a couple of seconds then closed itself. 


Im looking forward to playing the game, but I can't. 


Do you have any suggestions?

Nice mod for a great game, Can you also do the Truck series,

Just saw this! Part of the reason I did this was to grow the community, but there is a truck expansion somewhere. I never needed it but it is possible. So if you wanted the 1999 series, that could be found somewhere

Will it work for Mac?

I'm actually not sure, I'd love for someone to check that for me.

Every single one of them crashed at the same point. 

Dang, I'm kind of hoping it's your fault somehow. My roommate tried it and it worked, but I think he just added files to what he had instead of using the download

So i don't usually post on this forum but i felt that i could solve a lot of questions people were having

1. to make sure the game runs most of the time, make sure you run it in compatibility mode with windows xp service pack 2 and that you run the game as an administrator

2. to run the game all you need to do is unzip the folder and run the application called nascar racing 3

3. while i haven't tried all of tracks i did realize that the championship mode crashes immediately once you start it although that maybe because atlanta is the first race, although im not quite sure

Fantastic job! 

Is there any possibility of an update for the 2017 season?

I'm a fan of this series of Papyrus games and I'm trying to learn how to make updates too, I would not want to see this wonderful game die.
thanks so much!
