Welcome to NASCAR 08, the 11th game in it's series and the first to current gen consoles. NASCAR 08 features several different modes and activities to play including Licenses, Toyota Challenges, Contracts, Driver Badges and finally The Chase mode where you will unlock and earn the Licenses and Contracts available as well a stake part in series races. NASCAR fans will undoubtedly enjoy this game to it's core while casual racing fans and gamers might find the game a little difficulty at first and outside their comfort, but there is some intense fun to be had for everyone.

The Chase Mode
The first you will want to do is play a full season in this mode and make sure to complete every License & Contract along the way. You will win the NEXTEL cup during your progression of the season. You will also need to earn at least 3 gold medals during The Chase mode. After you are done with this mode, you will have unlocked 7 achievements for 295G.

Season Mode/Series Races
You need to win the Craftsman Truck Series race, the NASCAR National Series race, a NASCAR Car of Tomorrow race, any NEXTEL Cup using the NEXTEL Cup Series '07 Schedule in season mode as well as any Championship using the Car of Tomorrow Series Full Schedule. By winning all these events you will unlock 5 achievements for 130G.

Driver Badges
There are 2 achievements for 110G related to the badges. You must earn one driver badge for Bade of Honor and then every driver badge to unlock We Don't Need No Badges!. There are 43 driver badges altogether and a full list of them can be found in the Guide.

Unfortunately, as of early 2009 the servers for this game have been shut down which means you can no longer obtain Trade Your Paint for uploading a car setup to the EA Locker & Online Horsepower to win an online race.

After you have reached 100% in the game stat, you're likely to be close to 5000 miles driven if not there yet. This is one of these longest achievements in the game therefore if your till need some miles, practice laps do count so set up a 100% race there. You also need to complete a 100% length race in either Race Now or Season mode, the settings don't matter as long as it's set to 100% race length.

You will need to create a custom paint scheme for one car in every class for Custom Car Creator. You need to complete a Lap in the Toyota "Test and Tune" mode for We're Talkin' About Practice. Save a Race Replay for Play It Again, Sam. You need to also save a Craftsman Tools Car Setup at any track by simply saving the default settings to unlock Craftsman Tools Award. Once all of these are unlocked you will have unlocked a total of 6 achievements for 280G.

The final achievement you will unlock is All or Nothing for 100G which is to reach 100% game progress. This means you have to complete all Licenses, Contracts, all 43 Driver Badges, every Toyota Challenge & series race in The Chase mode.
