I cannot seem to get my G27 Logitech driving wheel to calibrate on DOS Box games like Indycar Racing 2, and Nascar Racing. When I plug in the wheel and start the game the menu selector is moving all over the place and not letting me control it. Any tips.

Press Ctrl+j while in main menu.

This and other tips can be found in game readme ;)

Well, it opens the calibration menu, but the arrows are going like crazy when I am not even touching the wheel. I don't know why it does that, perhaps it is because it thinks the wheel is the mouse. Long story short it is impossible to tell what I am doing.

In ICR2 folder there should be file INDY2TS.TXT. It has such trouble solution:

PROBLEM: The highlighted menu is scrolling uncontrollably.
SOLUTION: This problem is caused by a joystick (or other steering device)
that is out of calibration. To stop the scrolling, press the "J" key at the
Main Menu. This will turn off the joystick. Then, follow the steps below
to calibrate the joystick:

1. Select OPTIONS from the Main Menu and press <ENTER>
2. Select CONTROLS and press <ENTER>
3. Select CALIBRATE JOYSTICK 1 and press <ENTER>
4. Push the joystick left, right, up and down and to all four corners.
(NoteOn some wheels or yokes, you may only be able to "steer"
left and right to calibrate.)
5. Press <ENTER>

Once the joystick is re-calibrated, return to the Main Menu and press the
"J" key again to turn the joystick back on. For wheels and yokes with no
Y-axis, it is not necessary to turn the joystick back on in the menus by
pressing "J". The wheel will still function in driving mode.

As I said, please, read readme files that comes with the game ;)
