During the career, the player is introduced to Sara and Carter, and demonstrate the various roles that crew members function during events. Crew members can be used in every career mode and Quick Race event, but they are not available in some certain races and Lap Knockout events.

At the beginning, when the player first chooses their car and forms their crew, they can only have one wingman of their choice. As the player progresses throughout the career, and more crew members become available, they can select two wingmen in certain events.
