RotoHog Forms Strategic Partnership with NASCAR.COM, to Create and Implement Fantasy Stock Exchange Game

One of America’s fastest-growing game developers to build a state of the art fantasy stock exchange game for America’s premier sport for brand activation and fan involvement

LOS ANGELES, CA—(February 4, 2010) RotoHog, one of the fastest-growing and most innovative fantasy sports operators and game developers for major brands and professional sports, today announced that they have formed a strategic partnership with NASCAR.COM. RotoHog has built a fantasy exchange game that will begin in February with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Daytona. NASCAR.COM is part of Turner Sports.

“There is perhaps no sport that has a more passionate and dedicated following than NASCAR.COM, and we think that the fans will take to this exchange game like no other application in the sport,” said Kelly Perdew, CEO of RotoHog. “NASCAR.COM Stock Exchange is about being able to buy and sell drivers as you build and rotate your own team each week to compete for fantasy points. Just like a stock ticker, RotoHog’s Sports Market Ticker™ shows live pricing movements of the drivers based on the drivers’ supply and demand and provides a real-time indicator of the fan favorites in the game.” To explore or sign up for the game, visit http://fantasy2.nascar.com/xm
