I think it captures most of the essence of the original Death Track.
That being said, it does have flaws and definitely could use more work - the missing multiplayer mode is a prime example.
The "storyline" mode is interesting at best, it doesn't seem to mesh with the actual game, even if you win all the time, others are seen celebrating and having accidents.
The game itself is simple - race fast and try to get to the finish line first. Someone in your way? You've got two forward-directed weapons to take care of that. Sprinkle a few mines or spikes behind you to keep others from overtaking you.
There are a few weapons systems to choose from, and each can have three upgrades. Not quite what the original had, but good enough.
Several cars can be bought - if you win often enough.
To get more cash blow up stuff - the track is littered with explosives, strategically deposited for maximum carnage. Doing so will also grant you boons - invulnerability, speed boost, etc...
The same boons can also be picked up as power-up during the race itself. They'll not wait for you, though - the move about, left to right or up and maybe down.
All in all its a fun game. Fast racing, lots of explosions, good music. A feature that I personally like very much is the announcer, who comments your driving, for example when you take first position with the rest in hot pursuit, he may comment with an enthusiastic "You're leading the pack!".
