Hey, happy Friday. Take a gander at this week's version of Joey Logano's #20 GameStop Toyota, emblazoned with the smoldering eyes of Kratos. It doesn't matter how many video games I see plastered on how many stock cars, I'm never going to get used to it.

I have no specific evidence to support this theory but I would imagine God of War III is a lot closer to most NASCAR fans' hearts than BioShock was.
 
And since I've been been doing a poor job of chronicling Logano's progress through the NPD top 10 lately, let's play a little catch-up, shall we?

Man, there's something not right about that Mario Kart one. I think that concept is called "wrong." 
 
Let's hear it, racing fans. What game should Logano grab a hold of next?

Financially, it's a bit crazy. I mean Joey has to trade in the previous car for only half the value he originally paid for, not to mention he is paying full price for the new car he is going to be racing. That's NASCAR robbery, he should get a sponsor for Amazon or Goozex, where he gets better deals and values with his car sponsorships.

Definitely Just Cause 2, or Metro 2033. 
 
Failing that, wait for Red Dead Redemption.

@Brad: To be fair, they are running them only in the Busch series which tends to be the junior circuit.  The big race Winston Cup on Sunday, he will probably stay in the Home Depot car. 
 
Anyways, it is kind of weird.  I don't really know where I fit in though, I am in my 20's and have been into racing forever but almost all of my friends don't get into any kind of racing at all.

I think a Wii Fit sponsorship would really resonate with NASCAR fans.

What they first have to do is actually get ppl who can use modern technology to watch NASCAR and then put game sponsorship on the cars.
And yes, I mean that only rednecks watch NASCAR and that they know nothing about technology as a side effect of inbreading.

I would imagine NASCAR fans would love a picture of Marcus sawing a Locus in half on the hood of a car.

I think Brad's assumption about Bioshock vs. GoW III is probably correct.

Did your parents or someone close to you watch it?  Most of you friends probably have never given it any significant chance; I know I hadn't until I was about 24.  I realized that I just hadn't got it until that time.

if anything it helps both parties involved. the company gets their product out there to a different group of people and the driver gets to race another weekend if that sponsor isn't locked in for the season.  in this case joey & gamespot is a perfect match considering the dude is only 19 years old. nascar may not be your thing but he is making a hell of a lot more money than anyone at this website.

The God of War one looks the best since they actually stick to the color scheme. If Nascar cars were human, they would be the biggest whores out there, plastered with all those ads.
 
Would like to see a Mass Effect car.
 
Would also like to see a Final Fantasy 13 car just to see it unable to finish the race.

Nascar 11', Gran Turismo 5. LOL. any wrestling game. BUT SERIOUSLY, as far as im concerned the only conceivable sponsor for a stock car in my mind is some sort of tobacco company or beer. And Cole Trickle's city chevrolet

Red Steel 2 would be great. But my guess is on Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction being next.

If you were into racing, you would think you'd be up to date with league sponsors.  This "Busch" league you talk about is the NNS, NASCAR National Series.  Also this "Winston Cup"  is now the Sprint Cup Series, and has been for quite a while.   One more thing. The Intimidator, Dale Earnhardt, is dead. RIP.

You've been into racing "forever" yet you dont know that they stopped calling it the Winston cup since 2003? It's the Sprint Cup Series now, also Busch series is called Nationwide now. In case you're wondering the Craftsman truck series is now the Camping World Truck Series.  Just a little FYI.   
 
damn, thats a lot of series.  BTW i havent followed any nascar or racing in years now.  But i dig the god of war car.

Oh hell, throw Alan Wake up there.  Put up a picture of a cup of coffee, and instead of Joey Logano's name over the netting have 'Damn fine cup of coffee.'  Or maybe a slice of cherry pie.  Maybe half of Special Agent Dale Cooper's face.  Have a little person drive the car backwards perhaps.

They should do the next Nascar game. So they would have graphics of cars with graphics of other logos on them.
