Tomorrow in Texas at the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 NASCAR event, one car will zip around the track decked out with Mortal Kombat X's name and logo. The car, as you might expect, is the No. 20 Toyota Camry, driven by 18-year-old Erik Jones and sponsored by video game retailer GameStop.

The O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 will take place at the Texas Motor Speedway tomorrow, Friday, April 10, starting at 8:30 PM EDT. You can watch the race on FoxSports One or listen to it on the radio.

Mortal Kombat X is not the first game that GameStop has sponsored with its NASCAR No. 20 car. The company previously promoted Wii U racing game Mario Kart 8 back in May.

GameStop has been a NASCAR sponsor for nearly a decade by way of a partnership with well-known racing team Joe Gibbs Racing. Before Jones--who is signed to a ten-race deal--GameStop-sponsored drivers included Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano.

Mortal Kombat X launches April 14 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions, meanwhile, have been delayed. The mobile version of the game is available now.
