Tony Stewart’s SRX Has Had No Races Yet, But It’s Already Got a Video Game

Rememeber the scene in the movie Spaceballs (one of the biggest Academy Award snubs in movie history) where Dark Helmet, played by legendary comic actor Rick Moranis, is shown the future by fast-forwarding the video of the movie during the movie?

OK, you had to be there.

Anyway, fans clamoring for a sneak peak at the upcoming Superstar Racing Experience series can get a virtual look at the series through a new racing video game coming out two weeks before the first race.

The first race of the SRX, the brainchild of NASCAR Hall of Famers Tony Stewart and Ray Evernham, is scheduled for June 12 at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway.

SRX: The Game was created by Minnesota-based Monster Games and launches for consoles and the PC on May 28. The game, which will sell for $39.99 and be available for download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam platforms, will be based on the IROC-styled short-track racing series featuring drivers from different eras and different racing disciplines.

We’re excited to announce SRX: The Game! The official video game of @SRXracing, featuring all the Superstars of racing like @TonyStewart, @h3lio, @MW55, @TonyKanaan and many more! Available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 28th! 👍🏁 Check out

The game is said to include (we’re still waiting for a copy) many of the drivers who will be racing in the series, including Stewart, Helio Castroneves, Bill Elliott, Tony Kanaan and Michael Waltrip. The series, and the video game, will offer a mix of dirt and asphalt short tracks like Eldora Speedway, Knoxville Raceway and Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.

In addition to the SRX series, gamers can race in Stadium Trucks, 305 Wingless Sprints, and Dirt Late Models on over 50 tracks for non-stop action.

“After our successful partnership with All-American Racing and the Sprint Car game, I was excited to sit down with Monster Games and get to work on this new project” said Tony Stewart in a press release. “Between the unique style of racing that SRX is bringing to the table, the mix of dirt and asphalt, and the fact that it’s all old school short tracks, we knew a video game would be a ton of fun for our fans.”

According to the developers, the game will feature a career mode where the goal is to start out as a local dirt track racer and work your way up through the ranks. But, to get to the SRX series, a gamer will have to become a winner and ultimately a superstar.

“SRX is all about driver talent, and seeing who is the best. It’s that simple. We want to put these guys on some amazing tracks in equal cars, wave the green flag, and then enjoy the show” said Ray Evernham, “I can’t think of a better experience to put into video game form than what we’re trying to do with the real world series. I’m really excited about what we’re building, and can’t wait to show it off to the world.”
