Video: Pro racer Guy Cosmo tries NASCAR Heat 3

Veteran sports car driver Guy Cosmo attempted something a bit different this week, trying his luck in NASCAR Heat 3.

Guy Cosmo has raced everything from Audi R8s to LMP2s. Today it's NASCAR, but virtually with 704Games' NASCAR Heat 3 game.

As expected in NASCAR, there was plenty of contact as Cosmo worked his way around the Watkins Glen International circuit and a full field of AI competitors. 

But with minimal practice beforehand and starting from the rear of the field, he crossed the finish line 17th in the two-lap dash. Afterwards though, he wanted some more, praising the games graphics and admitting, "I'm hooked. I want to do some more of this!"

You can buy the game HERE, available now for PS4 and Xbox One.
