Nintendo has announced that it will be sponsoring Greg Biffle's #16 car in a pair of NASCAR races this August and September. Roush Fenway Racing will be outfitting Biffle's Ford Fusion with a white-and-turquoise paint job and a large Wii logo on the hood (seen at right) for his races at Watkins Glen International in New York on August 12th and Dover International Speedway in Delaware on September 23rd.
"I'm excited about this partnership with Nintendo and the Wii system," said Biffle. "I just got one myself and I love the boxing game. I've always been a fan of boxing and with Wii, it's a workout. I really get into it. I'll be driving the Wii car at Watkins Glen and Dover. I've got a pretty good record at Dover and I'd love to get the Wii car up front in both races."
Both races will be aired on television for those not making the trek out to Watkins Glen (ESPN) or Dover (ABC), so tune in at 1pm EST on each race day to see the Wii try to http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3160334.
