NASCAR turns left on Facebook in Car Town's NASCAR Pro Championship
Come on, what did you expect, a right turn? This is NASCAR we're talking about here, and it has arrived in Car Town, the automobile racing and repair Facebook game by Cie Games. Fans of the nation's most iconic motorsport can log into Car Town today and enter the NASCAR Pro Championship.
Since it's within Car Town, it's a mini game of sorts sponsored by Sprint that allows aspiring digital race car drivers to compete on three new tracks in a variety of missions for the Championship Title. Just like in the original Car Town, you'll time mouse clicks to maximize your speed and handling against your friends asynchronously. Then, you can share your scores on the NASCAR Pro Championship leader board.
Players can race in circles to their heart's content through the conclusion of the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in Homestead, Fla. on Nov. 20. Not to mention that players can earn virtual rewards from Sprint by watching in-game videos featuring Miss Sprint Cup, checking out her Facebook page and sharing pictures of their souped-up NASCAR rides with friends. And, if you hadn't noticed, Sprint is all over this ish, with branded rewards you can earn for your in-game garage and more.
"Through our NASCAR.COM features including video highlights, live leaderboards and RaceBuddy, fans can engage in an interactive viewing experience," said Justin Williams, senior director of business operations for NASCAR.COM. Now that there's a game to be played alongside the real NASCAR Sprint Cup, I just might tune in this year--well, maybe for the final stretch.
