The NASCAR Cup Series Drivers' Championship is awarded by the chairman of NASCAR to the most successful NASCAR Cup Series racing car driver over a season, as determined by a points system based on race results. The Drivers' Championship was first awarded in 1949 to Red Byron. The first driver to win multiple Championships was Herb Thomas in 1951 and 1953. The current Drivers' Champion is Joey Logano, who won his second NASCAR Cup Series championship in 2022.
While stage racing existed in some fashion, mainly in career mode when simulating race weekends, the ability to actually stage race per the NASCAR rule book in a race setting was lost in the completion of the game. Now in the 184.108.40.206 patch, stage racing exists and works mostly as it should.

After World War II, France had retired as a race driver and concentrated his efforts on promoting races. He called a meeting of those with interests in stock-car racing, which led to the formation of NASCAR.

These cracks can be used to patch games such that they do not seek the CD while running. This can help to speed the game up or free up the drive for other uses, such as playing music. It also makes gaming more convenient since you no longer have to hunt for CDs to play the games you have installed. The Free Information Society has no responsibility for how you choose to use these cracks.
2021 would see the deaths of three members of an elite auto racing family. In addition to Bobby Unser and his son, Bobby Unser Jr. (who passed six weeks after his father), Al Unser (May 29, 1939-December 9, 2021), one of only four drivers to win the Indianapolis 500 a record four times, died.
Edmondson wanted to Americanise the game, as the original had a British banger racing feel. Therefore, the cars were designed to resemble the stock cars used in NASCAR racing, while all the tracks were situated in the United States. Edmondson also wanted appropriate music for American stock car races, so he attended races across the United States, where he noticed that metal music featured prominently. Thrash metal bands Jug and Tuscan were therefore chosen to compose the soundtrack, as some members of the team were involved with them. Because soft-spoken commentary would not fit with the soundtrack, commentator Paul Page was asked to serve as the game's announcer due to his \"animated and excitable\" style. Edmondson travelled to the United States to record Page at a studio in Indianapolis.
Wrecking Racing was meant to enable a broad range of strategies, such as keeping up but watching out for destruction opportunities, destroying the cars in front, and destroying everything without concern for position. This was hard to balance, but it proved possible to win with each of those strategies. Edmondson came up with Stock Car Racing after watching the Banger World Finals at Arena Essex and noticing that there were some cars simply racing rather than trying to destroy each other. The normal race mode was implemented simply because the engine could support running a traditional race. For Destruction Derby mode, more varied arenas were implemented to take advantage of a new physics system developed by Reflections. Edmondson decided against implementing features such as speed boosts and collectibles because he did not want the game to feel like an arcade game and wanted the car physics to be as realistic as possible.
On 25 April 1997, Psygnosis released a free downloadable multiplayer patch (v0.91 beta) for the PC version of Destruction Derby 2. This update gives the ability for network (IPX) and internet play for up to 20 players, or up to two via serial/modem. In addition the AI has been tweaked for \"fairness\" in response to criticism of opponents' aggression. It is still available from the Internet Archive.
The PlayStation version received positive reviews. Edge praised the improved damage system resulting from the new physical modelling routines, saying the crashes are much more intense than the original. The 3D engine was described as \"impressive\", but the lack of a link-up multiplayer mode was criticised. Next Generation commented, \"As with most ground-breaking titles ... Destruction Derby created as many new problems as solutions, and the developers of Destruction Derby 2 have done an extremely nice job of correcting these faults with a much improved sequel.\" The reviewer elaborated that the game's larger tracks than the original allow the player to both build up more momentum for cra
