Hint: Pace car:
After coming out of the pits, press Brake. Reverse back into the pits and hit the pace car at about 100 mph. If you hit it hard enough, it will move. Steer it into any oncoming traffic.
Hint: Big air:
At Sears Point there is a hill with a huge Valvoline logo on it. Drive up the hill and you will fly into the air -- and your car may catch on fire.
Go past the first hill at Sears Point (the one that if you go too fast you will ramp and hit the wall) to the Valvoline jump, but do not ramp it. Turn around and go to the left side of the screen next to the wall and accelerate. Go forward until you ramp (this jump can hurt your car more than the Valvoline jump). You can do 720s, nose dives, half flips, etc.
