Alex DeMeo's Race America (also known in Europe as Corvette ZR-1 Challenge[2]) is a racing video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The art style is in a Western art style; a clear sign of its non-Japanese origin.[3] The game was never released in Japan. The European version received the Chevrolet license to use its Corvette vehicles while the North American version had to be redesigned into vehicles that strongly resembled Dodge Vipers.[3]


The game involves at driving on America's roads at approximately 200 miles (320 km) per hour from Boston to Los Angeles - 2,990 miles (4,810 km) from start to finish.[4] In the 2-player mode, the players race against each other using the same car model, but in different colors. In the single player mode, each player must compete against eight computer-controlled cars across the USA.[4] The drivers are all fictional and are not based on any racers of the era.[4]
