The 2011 NASCAR season kicks off this weekend with the Daytona 500. We know there are some NASCAR fans here on Gamezebo so we’ve put together a list of great games that are all about cars and racing to get you in the mood. Boogity, boogity, boogity!
Title Town Racing (Facebook)
Title Town Racing is the ultimate NASCAR fantasy league for social gaming fans. Manage your very own race team by buying new cars, building a race track, and challenging friends to races in order to unlock top-tier drivers like Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin. Then choose which drivers to enter in Sunday’s real-world race, and receive bonuses based on how well your drivers perform.
Car Town (Facebook)
Collect and customize race cars in your garage, then race them against other friends in your Facebook network. Earn coins by serving customers and hiring friends to work for you, spend the cash on upgrades that improve your cars’ performance, then race against friends in a drag-racing minigame that requires you to click at the right times to hit the gas and shift gears at the right moments.
Dive into an amusing look at the taxi business with this time management game, which puts you in control of a good-natured taxi cab named Gabby. Transport customers to their desired locations as quickly as possible to keep them happy.
If managing restaurants and beauty salons isn’t your thing, try your hand at running a handful of auto repair shops in the Fix-it-Up games. Buy broken down lemons, fix them up, and sell them for profit to make enough cash to advance to the next day.
Real Racing 2 (iPhone)
The original Real Racing was a hit on the iPhone, and its sequel is even better. Boasting real cars, gorgeous visuals, 16-person online multiplayer, and different control schemes to suit your level of experience, this is iPhone game is a must-have for racing enthusiasts.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (iPhone)
Hot Pursuit puts an nice twist on street racing by putting you in the vehicle of a police officer tasked with taking down an illegal street racing operation – the very opposite of past Need for Speed games that glorified the iffy activity. With the accelerator automatically on, players steer, tap the breaks, and use a variety of gadgets to catch the bad guys.
Reckless Racing (iPhone)
This top-down racing game is all about slipping and sliding around corners in the dirt. Players will slam their thumbs on the gas and try to outrun all of their hillbilly competition to take home the first place prize.
Jet Car Stunts (iPhone)
Driving a powerful race car off insane daredevil jumps at high speeds is dangerous enough on its own. Imagine doing it on a winding course located many thousands of feet above the planet’s surface. When you have to look down to see the clouds, you know you’re in for a wild ride.
