For the second time in his career, Kevin Harvick has landed the coveted cover athlete role for the latest NASCAR video game. This time around, the Stewart-Haas Racing driver is joined by boss and fellow NASCAR champion Tony Stewart on the cover of NASCAR Heat 4.
Prior to the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway, 704Games unveiled the new look and announced that the newest edition in the NASCAR Heat franchise is available for pre-order now at NASCARHeat.com. The game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
