    The name of this game is actually Sprint 2. You can clearly see this on the game options screen so the title to this track should be edited if possible. Where this gets confusing is that you can also clearly see on the Game Options screen that one of the settings is "Change Tracks Every 2 Laps". But Sprint 2 doesn't ever change tracks and you can see from the gameplay that the track never changes. You pick which track you want to race on and you stay on that track for the entire game. Sprint 1 does have this feature though which makes the game much harder. To verify what I'm saying you can go to MAME and check out the DIP options for both of those games. Sprint 1 is also a single player game while Sprint 2 is a two player game. The picture on the game options menu is Sprint 2. See here for more info on Sprint 2 http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_de...p?game_id=9739 and here for more info on Sprint 1 http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_de...p?game_id=9738. Here's another interesting bit of info on the games. "Sprint 1 was released two years after Sprint 2 and both games have the same type of play. The "1" and "2" designations have nothing to do with a prequel/sequel status, but merely reflect the number of players required for each game." Required probably isn't the right word though as Sprint 2 can be a single player game.

    I will vote accept once the title to the track has been edited. It's not the gamers fault that there's a game option that shouldn't be there and doesn't work. But I do think this should be titled Sprint 2. Nice score.

    Valid point, I don't disagree.

    So how would I get the track name changed?

    I looked up the dip switches for the game, did some testing, and looks like that's actually the one that determines if the tracks change in attract mode or stay on the easy one. No idea how they totally got that one wrong in the game settings here.
