According to a press release from the RTA, race fans will be able to purchase unique “digi-cast” NFT editions of 23 NASCAR Cup race cars at beginning Tuesday, February 15th until the drop of the green flag at the 2022 Daytona 500.

The RTA is excited to bring a new style of collectable to race fans.

“Collectibles are a part of the fabric of motorsports and we’re excited to partner with Candy Digital to bring best-in-class digital collectibles to market for our Cup Series race teams and drivers,” said Jonathan Marshall, executive director of the RTA. “This is our first of many upcoming product launches and commemorates the stars of our sport, the launch of the Next Gen car and the start of the 2022 season.”

Candy Digital will have a bundle purchase, where fans can obtain all 23 “digi-casts” for a lump-sum of $500. That bundle will be available for the first 500 minutes of the product drop.
