NASCAR Racing 3 is a racing simulator produced by Papyrus Design Group in 1999. Players can compete in the 1999 NASCAR Winston Cup Series and the 1999 NASCAR Busch Series. The game's multiplayer was powered by the World Opponent Network(WON), but is now inaccessible by this method after the end of WON servers in 2000. The game had an expansion called Craftsman Truck Series Expansion. Patches are available for updates for both the main and expansion games on the Sierra Entertainment website. The import and export features on the paint shop feature do not function upon installing the update.
NASCAR Racing 3 was released to largely positive reviews: IGN gave it a 9.2, GameSpot a 9.4, amongst other high ratings.
