If you’re reading this, you’ve likely joined Mojo Motors and used the website to shop around for a used car or truck. If you haven’t, why not? We have some really special tools to help you save money and time while shopping for a car. It sounds so cliche, but hear us out.
If you have bought a car recently or you’re in the market now to buy, you’ve spent a TON of time researching online – over 11 hours. You’ve looked at photos, compared different models, read dealership reviews, figured out what your trade-in is worth, etc. If you’re like the majority of car shoppers you will also probably buy a car after shopping for about a month.

Unlike Madden which is released before the NFL season starts, NASCAR video games have been traditionally released towards the end of the race season in September. As a result, we’ve taken a look at how the drivers featured on the cover of the video game fared in races before September and those after to really see if the Madden curse affects NASCAR too. At the end of each segment we have a verdict for each year. Please note, the year of the game does not coincide with the race season. For example NASCAR 1998 was released in 1997, NASCAR 99 in 1998 and so on.[keep reading]
