As one would expect, this table is based on {{NASCAR}}, the popular American [[SportingEvent autoracing sport.]] With accompanying commentary by NBC's Allen Bestwick, launch balls onto the magnetically-charged oval speedway around the playfield and scream into the action, then enter the Hauler truck and rack up the Miles and make the Speed Shots on the Road Course. Raise the Test Car to access the underground Garage, where you can whoop it up with the Super Fan, indulge in Happy Hour, and join the Infield Party, but watch out for the Bump 'N Run. Spell RACE to lock pinballs for multiball, collect the various Jackpot bonuses, then freeze the Super Jackpot and add more balls for bigger points. If you can make it through the rigors of the oval and take a Victory Lap, celebrate with a Super Party -- and then take on the Champion Challenge.

* CulturalTranslation: ''Grand Prix'', which replaces the NASCAR images and fan culture references with IndyCar equivalents.
** SelectiveLocalisation: Like ''NASCAR'', ''Grand Prix'' plays Sammy Hagar's "I Can't Drive 55"... a song that is unknown in Europe and doesn't fit the IndyCar racing theme at all.
