ESPN Speedworld is third-person stock car racing game released for the Sega Mega Drive. It was exclusive to North America.
ESPN Speedworld is a 16-bit rendition of NASCAR, only without the NASCAR license. The objective is to race around a series of banked oval tracks and finish first.
There is no in-game music.
ESPN Speedworld was released for the Mega Drive and Super NES at around the same time, and the two versions are very similar. The primary difference is that the SNES version has more on-screen colours and more interesting screen transitions (as opposed to the Mega Drive's fade to black). The technology used for drawing the tracks is identical (that is to say, "mode 7" is not utilised on the SNES similar to Mario Kart or F-Zero).
The Mega Drive version's vehicles advertise Sega, ESPN and Sony (Imagesoft), while all advertising was removed from the SNES version (which includes billboards at the side of the road).
