GT5 Gets the NASCAR Spotlight This Weekend
What you see there is the No. 20 GameStop car, which is driven by Joey Logano. This weekend, NASCAR is taking a jaunt out to the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth for the Nationwide Series O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge and the Sprint Cup Texas 500, and the GameStop car, as you can see, has a bit of a new paint job for the weekend. They’ve slapped some GT5 on the hood, and this is a good time for it; they want everyone to know that, yes, the game is still coming out soon, and, hey, NASCAR is in the gameYou can catch the No. 20 on Saturday in the Challenge on EPSN2 at 12:30-ish ET.
Just for fun, here is a quote from Logano talking about how great GT5 is:
I think GT5 is one of the best video games of all time. I’ve been fortunate enough to play some of the early builds of the game and even got to play against the creator of the series back in August. For GT5 to include NASCAR in the game this year is really sick. To think you can go on there and race the No. 20 car is wild. I’ve played racing games all my life, and it’s crazy to see your own cars in the game. I can’t wait for it to come out later this month.
You hear that? A NASCAR drive endorse GT5. It’s better than that game you love, he says. I’m sold. Also, since that quote came through GameStop PR, it seems to lend some credence to the November 30 release date we were talking about yesterday.
