Your Pre-E3 Video Game-Related NASCAR Update

Once I saw that the Meijer 300 already took place earlier today at the Kentucky Speedway, I figured it was too late to post this. But that was before I realized that driver Joey Logano tore up that track with not just a win today but a record-setting three consecutive wins over his last three races there.

Incidentally, Joey Logano is now the official NASCAR driver of GiantBomb.com.

Here's a clip of Mario and Yoshi careening around the final lap to victory. It's mildly disturbing to me that I've stopped looking at these video game-themed stock cars with bafflement, and instead just started sort of accepting them as a matter of course, but you will agree these are strange times we're living in, will you not?
