Nascar Thunder 2004[edit]

I vote to keep it because more people can work on it. I started the article so now more people can add on. A stub is the beginning of a new article. I vote to keep. --Numberonedad 16:48, 24 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Then expand the thing. What you've written is nearly useless. - 67.52.188.182 16:50, 24 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What do you want me to say? Do you want me to add drivers or raceways? --Numberonedad 16:52, 24 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This seems to be a good write up for the consoles, but it isn't accurate with the PC version. The PC version doesn't have Thunder Plates, nor does it have the Rival/Ally aspect, among other things. Would it be better to split this into a couple sections where there are differences, and keep united what works across all platforms?

Jeff Gordon vs. Mike Skinner[edit]

What was the incident between Mike Skinner and Jeff Gordon? I really want to know.--Chaz 23:31, 1 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not for GameCube?[edit]

Are you all sure it's not on GameCube? I'm gonna check. you're not colorblind, it's colored this way. Misteryoshi 12:04, 2 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Never mind...(I sure wish it was on it) I just thought it was odd just to skip one game then put it back on Gamecube. you're not colorblind, it's colored this way. Misteryoshi 12:07, 2 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Not my favorite NASCAR game[edit]

I did not like this game because of the Grudges and Alliance feature, they always wanted to wreck me just because I got a little rough-up with them. This feature sucked at tracks like Martinsville where bumping and banging is the norm. Also what is the deal with these rivalries like why the heck is Jeff Gordon rivals with Mike Skinner? What did Jeff ever do to him? I got so frustrated I just wrecked them when they were gunning for me because I cannot stand tailgaters. I think NASCAR Thunder 2003 was better than this and I think that they have done a better job with things since this.
