Real Racing 3 launches NASCAR update ahead of Daytona 500

For the fifth consecutive year, Real Racing 3, the award-winning franchise setting a new standard for mobile racing games, and NASCAR Team Properties (NTP) have teamed up to launch the NASCAR Racing Experience.

Since partnering with NASCAR in 2015, over 600 million NASCAR races have been completed worldwide.

“We could not be more excited for Real Racing 3’s fifth running of the virtual Daytona 500,” said Luis Gigliotti, senior producer, Real Racing 3. “For five years, RR3 has brought an exciting experience that gives casual to avid fans of NASCAR a truly authentic game that captures the thrill and excitement of the sport. We feel like this year’s update is the best yet and we can’t wait for players all across the world to experience it.”

Real Racing 3 features officially licensed tracks with 40 circuits at 19 real-world locations as well as a 40- car grid and over 250 meticulously detailed cars from NASCAR manufactures Chevrolet, Ford and Toyota. The game also includes real-time multiplayer, social leaderboards, time trials, night racing, and innovative time-shifted multiplayer™ technology – allowing you to race anyone, anytime, anywhere.

The Real Racing 3 NASCAR Experience challenges players to battle on the track with officially licensed cars in official team liveries and real-world sponsors to compete in the Daytona 500. The update gives players the chance to race at Daytona International Speedway with the same drivers that will be competing on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 2:30 p.m. on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM.

“Five years ago, the first NASCAR and Real Racing 3 integration was the most successful campaign in the franchise’s history,” said Paul Sparrow, managing director, licensing and consumer products, NASCAR. “Today, the game is even better and we continue to deliver a racing experience unlike any other through the DAYTONA 500, putting our biggest race of the year in the hands of players worldwide.”

Players enter each manufacturer event and start with the same driver livery for races ranging from one to ten minutes. As they progress, by winning events, they can choose to unlock the available drivers of their choice as well as earn upgrades to their car to make it more competitive or better than their rivals. This includes engine tuning, driver train overhauls, and brake upgrades.
