NASCAR: Dirt to Daytona is a racing simulator developed by Monster Games and published by Infogrames in November 2002 for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube. It is the latest in the NASCAR Heat series and the last of the NASCAR-licensed games to be published before EA won exclusive rights to the license.
The is one of the few games that allow you to race in divisions other than Nascar Cup. Those divisions are the Nascar Weekly Racing Series, The Nascar Featherlite Modified Series, The Craftsman Truck Racing Series, and the Nascar Winston-Cup Racing Series.
In the Career mode, players have to start out in a Dirt racing series and work their way through the ranks of Nascar to Nascar Cup. In free race mode players can race in any four divisions that they please. While the game incorporates actual drivers, fantasy drivers are also used in every division to make up for drivers not featured in-game.
