NASCAR Academy is a special event added with the NASCAR Update (v3.6) and is the first event in the NASCAR category. Completing NASCAR Academy unlocks NASCAR Talent Tour. All stages are unlocked from the beginning. In the Daytona 500 Update (v4.1.5), the vehicle used changed from the Ford Fusion (NASCAR Academy) to the Chevrolet SS (NASCAR Academy), while some goals changed, accommodating Daytona International Speedway.

Stage 01 (Orientation)

Players who successfully complete all of the goals given in the first stage (Orientation) are rewarded with 5 Icon Gold. Throughout the first stage, players will have to race the Chevrolet SS (NASCAR Academy) on Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Richmond International Raceway and Daytona International Speedway.

NOTE: Players must buy the Chevrolet SS (NASCAR Academy) to be able to compete in this event.

Greetings, Rook! I'm Chip McGee, your Crew Chief.

I'm here to whip you into shape. But first, before we get started, you'll need to purchase a car.

GOAL 1 OF 4: Let begin with drafting. Drive real close behind a car and you'll gain a speed boost from the reduced air resistance. Draft behind Austin Dillon for 2000 yards (1829 m). Check the speedo to see the effects of the draft!

You'll earn R$icon and Fame for completing each event. Finish in the top 3 and you’ll be rewarded well!

GOAL 2 OF 4: Now onto Richmond Raceway. Because this track is so short, drafting, also called slipstreaming, isn't as important. Focus on overtaking during the corners and finish in the top 6.

Quote Chip McGee
You ready to race your hardest? You better be. This is just the Academy - after you graduate you'll be up against the toughest drivers from around the world, so you gotta work at it.
— Chip McGee, Crew Chief
GOAL 1 OF 1: To prove what you've learned, make your way into the top 3. You'll have a choice of racing on Indianapolis, Richmond or Daytona. Now get out there and show me what you can do!

You've got guts. You've got spirit. And I'll be a shaved chimp if you ain't got heart. Now you just need experience.

The better you race, the more trophies you'll earn. Collect enough, and you'll progress through your career, getting your hands on better cars and faster races. Now no more chit-chat. Get out there and drive!
