The method I will describe can actually be boosted quite easily with just 2 players essentially, but you will have to wait for 2 randoms to show up-

From the Main Menu, have one player go to XBOX LIVE > CREATE SESSION. Make sure Ranked is set to Yes, set Total Number of Players to 4, choose TALLADEGA as your track, set the Race Length to 3% (6 laps), and Number of AI to 0. Now create the session, select your car, and press X to start the session-

Now the 2nd player can search under CUSTOM MATCH, change Ranked to Yes, and then search. The 2nd player should see their partner's name as the host of one of the races on the list and should then proceed to join it-

Now, once both players enter the lobby, you can just wait for 2 randoms to join. Once they do, whether they ready up or not, the host can still start the race-

Now, here's where the trick comes in. Once the race has begun, the host can press Start, go to Player List, press A on the GamerTag of the random and select KICK PLAYER and do so to each random to remove them from the race. This will leave just you and your partner with no AI. Once the race is over, the process can be repeated for the other player-

There is still quite a large community of players still playing at all hours, but it may take 10 minutes of waiting for two victims to be ensnared in the web of deceit you set up. Happy hunting-


As noted by Quinn Xplosion, EA will be closing the servers on this game on the 11th of August, 2011. Thereafter, this and all other online achievements in NASCAR 09 will be UNOBTAINABLE for any foreseeable future-
