Real Racing 3 Adds 2023 NASCAR Roster


Real Racing 3 Update Adds 2023 NASCAR Roster

While there’s no official NASCAR game this year, you can race the full 2023 roster in Real Racing 3, with the latest update adding the entire 2023 NASCAR grid from Ford, Toyota, and Chevrolet to the popular mobile racer.

2023 NASCAR roster comes to Real Racing 3

As part of the latest patch update (update 12.0), the current Ford Mustang GT, Toyota Camry TRD, and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 NASCAR racers competing in the 2023 season can be raced in Real Racing 3.

This is as close as we will get to an official NASCAR 2023 game. It’s fitting though considering that EA used to publish official NASCAR games between 1997 and 2009.

All three 2023 NASCAR racers feature in this week’s time trial event running until 4 December. This isn’t the first time a NASCAR season has featured in Real Racing 3, with last year’s update bringing the 2022 Next Gen grid to the free-to-play mobile racer.

Last year’s Nintendo Switch-exclusive NASCAR Rivals also featured the 2022 lineup, but Motorsport Games has since lost the license to develop and publish official NASCAR titles.

That license was picked up by iRacing, which is currently developing a new NASCAR console game set to release in 2025. As well as the NASCAR 2023 roster, the latest update also marks the return of the F1 invitational for the 2023 season.

Despite being over ten years old, Real Racing 3 remains one of the most popular and best mobile racing games thanks to frequent updates like this. Real Racing 4 was reportedly in development before being cancelled.
