Car Town Brings Virtual Nascar Cars To Facebook In Time For Daytona 500

While Nascar fans will not be able to drive in Sunday’s Daytona 500, Facebook game Car Town will allow them to pretend by racing virtual versions of the stock cars that will hit the track.

The Daytona Challenge in Car Town allows players to assemble their own pit crews by recruiting friends, build stock cars, and race on the Daytona International Speedway.

Friends can be added to pit crews as crew chief, jack man, tire changer, and fuel man.

Now, they can choose from six different Nascar teams and 11 popular drivers by selecting their stock cars. Developer Cie Games said more cars will be added throughout the NASCAR season, and the current choices are:

  • Number 42, Juan Pablo Montoya, Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates
  • Number one, Jamie McMurray, Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates
  • Number 48, Jimmie Johnson, Hendrick Motorsports
  • Number 88, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Hendrick Motorsports
  • Number 18, Kyle Busch, Joe Gibbs Racing
  • Number 11, Denny Hamlin, Joe Gibbs Racing
  • Number 15, Clint Bowyer, Michael Waltrip Racing
  • Number 56, Martin Truex Jr., Michael Waltrip Racing
  • Number 16, Greg Biffle, Roush Fenway Racing
  • Number 99, Carl Edwards, Roush Fenway Racing
  • Number 14, Tony Stewart, Stewart-Haas Racing
