“It’s cool to join my three teammates on the cover,” said seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Johnson, driver of the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. “A big part of our fanbase has a passion for gaming and for the NASCAR Heat franchise in particular. The details incorporated into the new game are amazing and will give players a really fun experience.”

Picked this game up, always enjoyed a good racing game. It's fun! I'm still in the beginning stages of the career mode, year 2 of the dirt track racing, it's fun sliding the car around the different dirt tracks!
