The Career Of Steve Fulton(Nascar Racing 2002 Season) 2nd Attempt


I am going to do a "career" on NR2002. I have downloaded almost 1000 cars from 1997-2015 and have the car sets set up to run a "career" myself since there is only season mode on this older game. I will start out with my own upstart/sponsorless team looking to make a name for myself and get an offer to drive for an established team and/or gain sponsorship for my team.

In NASCAR the first five races of the season had provisional starting spots based on the previous years point standings. If you weren't in the top-35 in points the previous year you aren't locked into the race. Since my team is brand new we will have no points to fall back on so I will need to qualify for each race or I will simulate a DNQ(did not qualify) by retiring before the green and receive zero points. If I out qualify the last place car I make the race. After the first five races the top-35 cutoff goes to the current season's standings.

I am going to start the career on 100% difficulty. Each year it will go down 1% as a default simulating me gaining experience until I can consistently contend for championships. There may be some storylines that could cause that percentage to go back up as well.

This playthrough may not go by what happened in real life and I might make up my own story lines. For instance, drivers retiring and switching teams may not mirror real life but at the start of this all the teams/drivers I have in the roster are correct for 1997. Except my team of course which is not real.

Also to keep the races from being too long and having too many cars out or laps down I'm running 50% race length with damage turned off. A few tracks have issues with cars running into each other during a caution taking some lead cars out so I just turned the damage off to prevent this.

Edit: After season one I have decided to take race length down to 25%.

So, let's get in the time machine and travel back to when NASCAR was in the midst of it's "glory" days. When even back-marker teams had multi-million dollar companies on the sides of their cars. The stands were packed, the lights were bright, the year was 1997 and lets head to Daytona!

Sound very cool. Will definitely be keeping a eye on this.

Honestly don't remember if I ever played NR2002. Assuming I did but remember 2003 the most.

Thanks for checking it out. Yeah, 2003 is the better game and I am planning on getting it eventually. 2002 is pretty much the same game just doesn't have the amount of mods for it but it has enough to get me by. I can't stand the console NASCAR games because I was spoiled by Papyrus as a teen.

Re: The Career Of Steve Fulton(Nascar Racing 2002 Season) 2nd Attempt



1997 NASCAR Raybestos Rookie Of The Year Contenders

15 | Larry Pearson | Bud Moore Engineering
31 | Mike Skinner | Richard Childress Racing
40 | Robby Gordon | SABCO Racing
83 | Steve Fulton | Fulton Motorsports
96 | David Green | American Equipment Racing

This years rookie class is headed by RCR's Mike Skinner who will be piloting the #31 Lowe's Home Improvement Chevrolet. Don't overlook Robby Gordon as he has many years of racing experience in the Indycar Series. David Green and Larry Pearson look to make their marks as well.

A young upstart from Belews Creek, NC who just won the late model championship at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, NC is bypassing the Craftsman Trucks and Busch Series and taking his talents to the top series in NASCAR. He will be piloting the 83 for his family team which is headed by his grandfather Glenn Fulton. When asked about his goals for the year Mr. Fulton said we are just looking to make every race. He stated this year would be rough on the organization but will be worth it as a lesson for his grandson Steve.

Most veterans eye the rookies move to the top as "silly" and think he should be starting in trucks or Busch Series competition like Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth, Eliott Sadler and others who are sharpening their skills at the lower levels. Time will tell if the move was good or not and I can't wait to witness it.
