We’re thrilled to announce NASCAR Heat Champions! This multi-day Esports tournament will debut at Daytona International Speedway during the DAYTONA 500 race weekend.
NASCAR Heat Champions will pit fans against one another for prizes. The NASCAR Heat Champions winner will receive an Xbox One S console, a VIP DAYTONA 500 experience, and more. Additional prizing, including copies of NASCAR Heat 2 with download codes for the new 2018 Season Update and items from 704Games and Daytona International Speedway, will be distributed throughout the tournament.
The multi-day tournament will take place on Esports Arena Drive as the mobile Esports arena makes its competition debut. Unveiled in January during the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the state-of-the-art, 80-foot, 18-wheel, 35-ton semi-trailer transforms with the push of a button into a self-contained competition stage and production studio.
Esports caster Bill “Jump” Carter (@Jump_) will host the tournament and the finals will be streamed live on Esports Arena’s Twitch channel starting at 10 a.m.
Pre-registration is not required for NASCAR Heat Champions. Esports Arena Drive will be located in the Midway between the Florida Hospital Injector and the Chevrolet Injector at Daytona International Speedway.
