Wide World of Esports: Fun with FaceApp, Heat 4 on Cup Cars, and a Week of eNASCAR Ahead

FaceApp Fun

iRacing’s social media team gave the familiar pit crew the ol’ FaceApp treatment. They all aged so nicely.

Hopefully this doesn’t mean the virtual pit crew isn’t into some weird facial recognition database or something now.

Koch’s Esports Sponsorship Success

FilterTime founder Blake Koch briefly tweeted about success found from sponsoring JR Motorsports’ eNASCAR efforts.

The FilterTime colors first appeared on Michael Conti’s eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series car before eventually making their way to Justin Allgaier’s NASCAR Xfinity Series ride at Kentucky Speedway.

NASCAR Heat Contingency Decals

If you caught the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday, you might have spotted NASCAR Heat 4 contingency decals on the sides of many cars in the field to promote pre-orders for the game’s September release.

Or, if you don’t want to wait for NASCAR Heat 4, Chip Ganassi Gaming driver Josh Parker’s got you covered.
