    This is the kind of totally misunderstood culture mix-up that you’d expect from a japanese developer, but it’s not a japanese developer.

    I don’t really get it. I mean, shouldn’t she actually be winning stuff, and doing it in a sport that matters?

    This is a bit like making Anna Kournikova Tennis, TM. Now you have the opportunity to be the most highly publicized non-winner in the sport, yay for you!

    @1, to be fair she was more of a doubles player, was No.1 in doubles and won 2 grand slam doubles titles.

    @1 – Yeah she is not a big winner, but to many in the US (mainly in the south) NASCAR IS “a sport that matters.”

    Those left hand turns are tricky things.

    I like her. And Nascar is as much a sport as any other race class, imo. And I am from the north! ;)

    A game for solid, hardcore, evolved gamers with minds free of moral bs and dated prejudices.

    It’s called satire, you guys.

    Living off and on in Alabama, I’m very well aware that NASCAR is something that rednecks love and cherish, but that still doesn’t do a lot to explain how one of those drivers fits into a Sonic and Sega All-Stars game.

    Of course it’s a case of exploiting a license you have laying around anyway, vis a vis the sponsorship, but even so it’s a bit weird to profile someone who hasn’t been on the podium.

    I don’t know what it is with Sega and the South though. Back home Sega is pretty much dead. Talking about Sega is like talking about ancient egyptians that used to roam the earth.

    Here you walk into a Walmart and there’s Sega stuff all over the place.

    Aw. I miss UK:R :(
