Mac game publisher Aspyr Media today announced plans to bring NASCAR Racing 2002 Season to the Macintosh. The new game will be “co-published” by PC publisher Sierra Entertainment Inc.

Developed for the Mac by Westlake Interactive, NASCAR Racing 2002 Season is already in duplication, according to Aspyr — it’s something of a “stealth” release, as the company hadn’t mentioned until this morning plans to publish the game. For folks who keep an eye on Westlake’s Project Status Web page, this project was listed as “The Finest Hour:” a convoluted reference to the Winston Cup (by way of Winston Churchill’s famous speech).
The game features teams, drivers, sponsors and every track of the 2002 NASCAR Cup Series. To get started, players can engage in driving lessons and track tours narrated by NASCAR Cup Series Champion Darrell Waltrip.
System requirements for NASCAR Racing 2002 Season call for Mac OS X 10.1.5 or higher; G4/733MHz or G4/500MHz Dual Processor; 128MB RAM; Radeon, GeForce2 MX or better video card with at least 16MB of VRAM; 8x CD-ROM.
Rated E for Everyone by the ESRB, the software will be on store shelves this month. NASCAR Racing 2002 Season carries a suggested retail price of US$49.95. (As MacCentral posted this article, Aspyr had not yet updated its Web site with details on NASCAR Racing 2002 Season, but said it expected to soon).
