Texas-based GameStop Corp. plans to launch its NASCAR 15 video game on May 22, with NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Erik Jones in a virtual starring role. Jones' No. 20 GameStop/Mortal Kombat X Toyota Camry, fielded by Joe Gibbs Racing, is featured in the newest product at $19.99.
"For a long time, we've had NASCAR racing games, but it's never really been taken to the level I thought capable," said Jones, who made his first Xfinity Series start at Texas in Friday night's O'Reilly Auto Parts 300. "So to have you guys (GameStop of Grapevine, Texas) come in and try to make something out of it is pretty exciting. Definitely looking forward to the game that's coming out this year. It's a blast to race .. and try not to tear too much stuff up."
In Xfinity Series qualifying, Jones covered the 1.5-mile quad-oval at 185.166 mph for his second series pole.
