As part of our neverending mission to tell you what video game is now turning left four times at 160km/h on Saturday, let’s check in with Joey Logano and the No. 20 GameStop Toyota.
GameStop, which has a 21-race sponsorship deal with the NASCAR driver in the lower-run Nationwide Series, put Split/Second on Logano’s hood for something called the Bubba Burger 250 tomorrow at Richmond International Raceway. Split/Second is actually something Logano has played.
“You have to use real racing skills like drafting, just like you do on the track most weekends,” Logano said, “but then you also have to think about planning a strategy to wreck the other cars and the courses so you can win.” Just like you do on the track most weekends, amirite?
Logano opened the series with a seventh place finish at Daytona (that’s not the 500, btw), with BioShock 2 on his hood, then took the pole but finished fifth with Mario Kart Wiion the lid. Tomorrow’s race is 7.45pm Eastern on ESPN2, if that’s your thing.
