Other features include car customization and the ability to race against the 2020 playoff drivers on all 10 tracks. With regard to access, all that the fans need to do is open the NASCAR Mobile App and click on the game.

From there, the users will get a prompt to use their phones to scan their surroundings. Once that is achieved, the game will place a 3D-version of their favorite track anywhere to start racing.

Additionally, the game features a Practice Mode where players can casually drive around. This will also allow newcomers to get used to how their car handles at each track and learn the ropes.

There is also another mode, called Game Mode, that allows fans to compete against the playoff drivers. Of course, there is a difficulty level based on every players’ level, which ranges from 1 to 16. In such a scenario, the gamers’ objective is to earn points and try to move up the leaderboard.
