    Here's my solution to getting this annoying little achievement.

    Thanks go to Streak Leader who posted a suggestion in the other solution suggesting using the following set up

    Hard Difficulty
    4 Laps
    Daytona Oval

    This is what I did and I also set about getting as many rivals as possible during the race.

    Heres my added extra advice....

    During the race try to avoid getting wrecked in the earlier laps, but what you are aiming for is to be on your last legs as you go into lap 4, ideally smoking with the red sparks coming from out beneath / behind your car.

    Drop to the back of the pack and travel slowly towards the finish line. Don't stop or go into reverse or it will re-spawn you.

    As you get close to the finish line, go into a donut by holding RT, X and left or right.

    As the AI vehicles come round to lap you, hopefully one of the rivals you've created, or another AI car will smash into you, wrecking you across the line.

    It took me a couple of tries to get the right balance of my own damage level and donut location, but I got it without to much frustration.

    As always I hope this helps and if you think you can add more, put something in the comments.

    probably the hardest achievement in the game because unlike the rest this is luck based....i was wrecked on lap 3/4 and thought maybe id luck out and get the achievement but you have to get wrecked on the last lap....what i did was went to the quick race and did a 12 race season and put the difficulty on hard and set the laps to 1 and just beat and bang til you get your car smoking and limp to the finish line and if you can get a rival or 2 slow up and hope they wreck you on the last straightaway...i was actually off the track i got wrecked but still crossed the finish line and the cheevo popped

    Streak LeaderI used a modified version of this method and finally got it to work. Difficulty on hard, one race season, 4 laps on the Daytona Oval. It really helps if you can make several rivals during the race because they will be the ones much more likely to slam into you as you apply the brakes near the finish line.

    misterman08its a pain like i said pretty much luck based....think it took me about an hour of just sitting by the finish line and hoping a rival hit me and not someone else

    This is an annoying achievement to get, but its not that bad. I found that getting another car to hit me was pretty hard, so instead of having another car wreck me, I did it myself. I got my car dinged up pretty good until the engine was smoking and there were sparks coming off. At the last lap I fell to the back of the pack and got a decent ways behind. As the finish line approached I just drove diagonally into the wall right before the finish line. The wrecked car scene showed up, I finished the race, and the achievement popped. No need to have another car wreck you when you can do it yourself. Makes it a lot easier.
