Tony Stewart's All-American Racing

After the success and critical acclaim of their first video game, Tony Stewart and Monster Games have been listening to fan feedback, and working on their next installment. Tony Stewart's All-American Racing will be available for download on the Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Steam on September 4th, 2020 and will feature a career mode that allows the player to build their own racing empire just like Tony Stewart. Combined with a robust new physics engine, and 3 unique car types, it's a brand new experience that's sure to please our loyal fans. 

 

"Ever since our sprint and TQ midget game came out earlier this year, the biggest question I get is from fans wanting to know when we're going to do more," said Tony Stewart, 3 time NASCAR Cup Series Champion. "It's more than just adding new cars. We really took the time to listen to the fan feedback and adapt the driving model to create a completely new experience. We think this could be one of the top dirt racing games released to date, and I'm excited to get it out to the fans this Friday."

 

The game will feature U.S. Legend Cars, Street Stocks, and Big Block Modifieds and 26 brand new dirt tracks. The cars are totally unique, and have their own personalities on the track. Career Mode has been revamped as well. Players can choose what they want to race right from the start, and then it's all about building your racing empire. You can hire different managers to make your business more effective, or hire hot seat drivers to race for you. It's all about choice, and allowing each player to have their own unique experience. The 25 player online multiplayer has been improved, and Championship mode returns as well. 

 

"It's not every day you get the kind of access that we do to Tony and his team. He gave us some great insights into what it's like being that rare owner/driver who is constantly working and thinking about all sides of a race team. And, that vision really plays out in our new career mode," said Richard Garcia, President of Monster Games. "He's really one of the last ones to be an owner/driver at the highest levels of motorsports, and arguably the best who's ever done it. We're truly blessed to have him as a partner."

NHRA Hall Of Famer Darrell Gwynn Creates National Wheelchair Challenge

NHRA Hall Of Famer Darrell Gwynn Creates National Wheelchair Challenge

NASCAR legends Tony Stewart, Darrell Waltrip and Bill Elliott, current NASCAR superstar Ryan Newman, WWE wrestling champion Bill Goldberg, Kelley Earnhardt, sister of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. and co-owner of JR Motorsport, former MillerCoors Chairman Pete Coors, and Bass Pro Shops Founder Johnny Morris are among the high-profile athletes, celebrities, business titans and philanthropists who are spending part of their regular day in a wheelchair as part of the Darrell Gwynn Wheelchair Challenge. The challenge, benefitting the Darrell Gwynn Chapter of The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis, is the brainchild of Darrell Gwynn, the legendary drag racing champion who was paralyzed in a practice run 30 years ago, as a way to commemorate the 30th anniversary of both his accident and the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as National Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month in September. 

 

The Wheelchair Challenge asks participants to sit in the “Hot Seat” and experience a day in the life of someone who is wheelchair bound. Each of the first group of nearly two dozen participants has agreed to donate a minimum of $10,000 to the cause, which is an initiative of the Darrell Gwynn Chapter of the Buoniconti Fund, and then challenge family members, friends, colleagues, and business associates to do the same. 

 

All participants will document their experiences on video with the hashtags #DGWheelchairChallenge #StandUpForThoseWhoCant #TheMiamiProject #SCIAwarenessMonth #ADA30, as well as tag the organization hosting the challenge:

 

“The Wheelchair Challenge is a unique way to honor the 30th Anniversary of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act and National Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month, while raising funds to help find a cure for paralysis,” said Darrell Gwynn. “When some of my close friends asked me how to also commemorate the 30th anniversary of my accident, I said to them, “how about sitting in the hot seat...how about spending some time in a wheelchair so that you might get a glimpse of what those of us in wheelchairs deal with day to day, while also providing support so that someday others with spinal cord injuries will be able to get out of their chairs and walk again.

 

Everyone I asked immediately said, Yes!”



Added Marc Buoniconti, president of the Buoniconti Fund who was, himself, paralyzed in a college football game 35 years ago, “The idea is to convey how it feels to lose, temporarily, a key function nearly everyone takes for granted – mobility and get the public at large to understand the challenges we face on a daily basis. This has been my reality for 35 years and Darrell’s for more than 30 years, and millions of others around the world live it daily. It is our hope that this effort will get people to understand a little bit more about the challenges millions face each day.”

 

Considered one of the 50 greatest racers of all-time, Darrell Gwynn was a world champion drag racer in the 1980s before his devastating practice run accident resulted in his paralysis. Ironically, Darrell was an early Miami Project supporter, even before his paralyzing injury. He proudly displayed the Miami Project logo on his car and donated a portion of his winnings after each race. In 2015, he formally joined the team and began to focus all his efforts into his role as the Director of the Darrell Gwynn Quality of Life Chapter of the Buoniconti Fund.
 
The Buoniconti Fund is the fundraising arm of the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. Based in the Lois Pope LIFE Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, the fund was created by the now late Hall of Fame football player Nick Buoniconti after Marc’s accident to raise funds to find a cure and to provide cutting-edge treatments for spinal cord injuries.

About The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis and The Buoniconti Fund: The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, a Center of Excellence at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, is considered the premier investigative research program conducting cutting edge discovery, translational, and clinical investigations targeting spinal cord and brain injuries. The Miami Project’s international team includes more than 175 scientists, researchers, clinicians, and support staff who take innovative approaches to the challenges of spinal cord and brain injuries.

“As soon as we took the green, I knew that I was going to be really good," commented Briscoe in Victory Lane. “The car was way better than what it was yesterday and was really what I was looking for. We were able to finish sixth in the first stage from the back and I knew if we could get clean air I was going to be in really good shape I am super happy to get HighPoint.com back in victory lane. It feels like it has been forever, but it has only been a month and a half. Hopefully, we can carry the momentum into the playoffs.”
