If you were unfortunate enough to play NASCAR Heat back in 2016, then it may be a bit tricky to muster much enthusiasm for the next game in the series. But after a bit of a dodgy start with the Heat franchise, at least the only way is up – and that’s exactly what we hope to find with NASCAR Heat 2. Please let there be improvements!
Available right now, NASCAR Heat 2 promises to be the most authentic stock car and truck racer known to man. You’ll get the chance to hit 29 NASCAR ovals, dirt tracks and road courses as you go wheel to wheel with the largest roster of drivers in NASCAR history. Alternatively, you could always create your own driver and prepare to battle it out for podium and leaderboard glory.
If the deep Career mode isn’t to your liking, then you could always head on to the track with a friend alongside you with both split-screen multiplayer and a full online offering playing host to some fast and frantic racing.
If you’re a NASCAR fan and need to get a bit of an adrenaline hit, then you should be making your way to the Xbox Games Store right now. £39.99/$49.99 is what you’ll need to find.
There are also a couple of DLC packs AND a Pass to enjoy. The Hot Pass comes with a £23.99 price tag and will ensure your game is kept completely up-to-date. That means you’ll get access to no less than seven expansion packs, each with their own goodies, at regular intervals in the months ahead. Meanwhile, the free September Toyota Pack brings Toyota onto the grid, whilst the September Jumbo Expansion (£7.99) brings tons of additional paint schemes, flags and challenges.
NASCAR Heat 2 brings the most authentic and intense stock car and truck racing of all time. Test your driving skills across 29 NASCAR® sanctioned ovals, road courses, and the infamous dirt track, Eldora Speedway.

Take the racing online against a full field of drivers in rolling seasons as you battle for the top spot on the leaderboards. Back by popular demand, battle it out with a friend in head-to-head, local split-screen multiplayer. Hit the track in NASCAR Heat 2 for a one-of-a-kind racing experience!
