NORTHFIELD, Minn. – Monster Games, the former developer of the NASCAR Heat series of video games, has announced a new partnership with Tony Stewart to bring sprint car racing to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Feb. 14.
Tony Stewart’s Sprint Car Racing will be available for digital download on both platforms for $29.99.
The game will feature Tony Stewart – a three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and recent NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee – along with defending All Star champion Aaron Reutzel, competing in the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions.
“I’m really excited to partner with Monster Games on this opportunity. The team has done a great job of capturing the sport, and putting it in the hands of any fan who wants to pick up the game and have a lot of fun playing it,” said Stewart. “With the quick-hitting action of sprint car racing, the qualifying, the heat races, and all events leading to the A-main, it’s really the perfect experience for a video game and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
The game will feature 410 winged sprint cars and TQ midgets from the All Star Circuit of Champions, as well as 305 wingless sprint cars.
Career mode will allow fans to work their way up through the ranks of each series, racing on 24 unique dirt tracks along the way.
Players can also battle in 25-player online races for a chance to take over the top spot on the leaderboards and secure bragging rights among their friends.
“We wanted to create something for our fans that was really unique, and after seeing the popularity of dirt racing in our previous games, the direction we wanted to go was pretty clear,” said Rich Garcia, President of Monster Games. “Nothing compares to the excitement level at the local dirt tracks on a Friday or Saturday night, and that’s what we really wanted to capture.”
