WizKids Inc., creators of the runaway hit games Pirates of the Spanish Main and HeroClix, are proud to announce a licensing agreement with the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) for Race Day, a constructible racing game featuring cars of 22 of the top drivers and cars in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series, including Jimmie Johnson (driver of the No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet), Jeff Gordon (driver of the No. 24 DuPont Chevrolet), Tony Stewart (driver of the No. 20 Home Depot Chevrolet).
"We couldn't be more excited to work with NASCAR on this thrilling game," said Mike Samora, vice president of Sales and Marketing at WizKids. "Race Day captures all the excitement of a NASCAR race in an affordable, fun and fast-playing package. Players collect and assemble their favorite cars and play against their friends and family, drafting and "stepping on it" all the way to the checkered flag."
Race Day is sold in 2-car starter packs for $4.99 and Limited Edition starters for $9.99.
The 2-player basic starter includes 2 randomly-inserted cars, resource card, miniature die, and one 'small track' with one-fourth of a 'superspeedway' track printed on the opposite side. The superspeedway rules add more strategy elements to the game - the small track is just for starter rules or for quick games.
The Limited Edition starters includes 4 randomly-inserted cars, one promotional car, 3 resource cards, 2 full-size dice, and a complete full-color superspeedway (Pocono in RD 2005, Daytona International Speedway in RD 2006 S1) with rules.
