Racing gamers will have one more title to add to their collection next month when the latest edition of British developer Eutechnyx’s NASCAR video game franchise, NASCAR ’14, hits stores for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 18.

As you’d figure considering he’s the cover star for the game, three-time Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart is the focus of the latest trailer. In the one-minute-plus clip, he details why he does what he does and who he doesn’t do it for (“you don’t do it for the press, the girls, the fame – well, maybe for the girls, definitely not for the press,” he quips) between shots of game play.

He signs off on his soliloquy with a nod to his return from a broken leg last summer, something that could be interpreted as a message for his legion of fans and a warning to his rivals: “You better be ready, ’cause I’m coming back.”

NASCAR Nation is looking forward to it, we’re sure.

One of the biggest challenges for any motorsport series — whether it’s NASCAR, NHRA, IndyCar, Formula One and so many others — is to find ways to attract new fans.

That’s particularly important when attempting to lure young fans, especially the much-coveted millennials (born after 1981) and teenagers.

As all series prepare for the upcoming 2018 racing season, kudos have to be given to IndyCar for its new “The Future Starts Now” video, which debuted Tuesday at the North American International Auto Show at Detroit.

Even if it’s five degrees below zero where you’re at, one look at this video and you’ll likely not only start warming up a bit, we bet you’ll start getting even more excited for the start of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season, which begins March 11 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
