To clarify to those whom watch Nascar, this is a Nationwide race not the Sprint Cup race.

Game Stop has been a big sponsor for Joe Gibbs racing at the Nationwide level for years, this isn't to surprising that Gamestop would have a promotion deal with Nintendo.

Nationwide races in Charlotte draw in big crowds though.
So yeah it is a pretty big deal! Knowing Gamestop they'll probably have a demo kiosk to play the game at the JGR trailer. So it maybe many people's first time ever seeing the game...

I LOVE the little hint/touch with Mario being upside down.

I wonder if the people watching the race will "get" it.

I'm really glad the game is getting massive exposure. Goes to show you that Nintendo will go all out to make sure their key titles sell big time.
