American Racing is a free car racing game that is based on the NASCAR model. The vehicles look like they are made for this particular event although the race track is not shaped like a NASCAR track. The vehicles go through several turns; most of them to the left, before the race comes to the end. You use the arrow keys to control the forward motion of the car and also to turn it left and right. The down arrow is used to slow the vehicle down. For those who are left-handed, they can use the WASD keys. The race starts with you in the last position; position 20. You have to race one lap in order to qualify for the next stage of the tournament, which is the Gold Event. In order to qualify you have to be position 10 and below; position 1 to 10. If you come 11th, you will have to try and qualify again. The game is very fast and you will be on the edge of your seat as you try to beat the other drivers. You are not supposed to hit other vehicle, since this will slow you down, and you may lose your position to other drivers. There is a boost mechanism, which works very briefly and it is best used when you are overtaking another car. You can even overtake 3 vehicles with a single thrust of the boost mechanism. You activate boost by pressing the Spacebar. This kind of racing is very exceptional, and it is a game that will keep you enthralled, mainly due to the speed of the graphics. You actually feel like you are in a race since the images move very fast. So you can put on your racing cap, imaginary gloves, and then you can race your heart away.
