“We are excited for Dale Earnhardt Jr. to be featured on the cover of the new NASCAR The Game: Inside Line” said Blake Davidson, vice president of licensing & consumer products at NASCAR. “For a campaign that was driven entirely through social media, the more than 775,000 votes cast in the “Drive for the Cover” campaign is a testament to the impact that the NASCAR industry and its fans have across these platforms.”
