704 Games Announces NASCAR Heat Champions Tournament


What’s a good reason to pick up NASCAR Heat 3 when it goes on sale later this week? The potential to win $500,000? Good as any.

704 Games, developers of NASCAR Heat 3, have announced a new esports tournament centered around their new game: NASCAR Heat Champions: Road to Miami. Starting September 10, anyone can use their copy of NASCAR Heat 3 to enter and post their fastest race time. Qualifying matches will be held weekly, alternating between the PS4 and XBox One versions of the game. Three additional finalists will also be chosen through a special event at Esports Arena Drive, America’s first mobile esports arena. Qualifying matches end November 11.

From there, the finalists will be flown to Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where they’ll compete in the Road to Miami finale on November 18, with a $10,000 prize at stake (plus other goodies). Also, if the winner of that tournament correctly predicts the official total race time of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Ford EcoBoost 400 within five seconds, they’ll win an additional $500,000 — though the odds are slim.

“Fresh off the launch of NASCAR Heat 3, NASCAR Heat Champions: Road to Miami launches our first esports tournament so fans can literally play along with the real-world NASCAR Playoffs,” says Ed Martin, president of 704Games. “NASCAR Heat Champions: Road to Miami is the first NASCAR esports competition of its kind on video game consoles, accessible to NASCAR fans across the U.S., making it a truly one-of-a-kind experience.”

NASCAR Heat 3 will be out for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC on September 7. See you at the track!
