2nd Place Spinout Challenge award:
The key to winning this challenge is track position and pit strategy. Start the race and drive your way to either first or second place within the first three laps. At the end of lap three, make a pit stop. Take on tires and just enough gas to finish. Adjust the wedge setting if necessary. As the rest of the field cycles through their pit stops a couple of laps later, make sure you are in a position to recapture second place. As you near the finish line on the last lap, aim your car to crash into the outside wall right at the finish line. When the car hits the wall, the impact will spin it around backwards as it crosses the line. This should be sufficient to win the challenge.

Speed Demon Part 3 (Daytona) Challenge:
Start the race and work your way through the field as best you can. It is not necessary to be at the front. At the end of lap three, make a pit stop and take on tires only. Do not adjust the wedge very much, if at all. Fix any damage that you may have received. Go back out onto the track. Your driving line now becomes the critical factor for achieving the 47 second lap that the challenge requires. At the beginning of your second lap back on the track after your pit stop, your speed should be near 190 or 191 mph. As you enter turns one and two, your entry speed should be around 195 and exit speed around 184 or 185. Any slower than that on the exit, and you will be able to make it up on the backstretch. As you enter Turns three and four, entry speed should be near 197 and the exit should be around 183 or 184. If you keep those speeds, you should run a lap somewhere between 47.5 and 47.6 seconds. It is absolutely imperative that you keep a steady line through the corners, otherwise you will scrub off too much speed if the car drifts off line. You will need to make a second pit stop to gas up and get four more tires, probably around lap seven or eight. If you can draft on other cars, this will significantly pick up your turn entry speeds but you can run a 47.6 second lap without a lot of drafting help.

+5 Less Tire Wear (Defensive) 1

Ramming cars:
Get the car you want ram directly besides. Keep him beside your car on the left side. When you are coming around a corner, press Analog-stick Left to send him straight into the wall. You can also keep him along your left side and wait for the pit entrance get near. Then, press Analog-stick Left to send him into the pits. Some cars can regain control before they go in, so get as close as you can.
