Brian Tedeschi

Age: 23

Hometown: Custer Park, Illinois

Team:  Team Penske

Console: (Xbox or PlayStation)  Xbox

How much has gaming expanded or added to your interest in NASCAR?

I have been a NASCAR fan since I was 4 years old. I starting playing NASCAR games on the PS1 and have purchased every game since. It has added to my experience because I am able to interact with fellow NASCAR fans and talk about the sport.

Why do you prefer using (Xbox or PlayStation 4, depending on which one they use):

I prefer using Xbox because it is what I have always used and I have never had a PlayStation of any kind.

What made you decide to try out for the eNASCAR Heat Pro League?

I tried out for the Pro League because I wanted to be apart of the first generation of NASCAR esports. The potential for connection with new fans is unlimited and I want to help the sport grow.

A 16-race season is a long one. How do you plan to approach the races and get yourself in position to make the playoffs and eventually win the first eNASCAR Heat Pro League Championship?

Take each race one at a time and understand that there is a bigger picture for the Team and Individual championships. Preparation is key when it comes to practice and setups and I have a great teammate that I’m excited to work with.

Any other interesting facts you’d like to share about yourself?

Purdue University student studying Mechanical Engineering Technology. I also recently competed in the 62nd annual Purdue Grand Prix

Cory Rothgeb

Age: 24

Hometown: Waynesboro, VA

Team: Team Penske

Console: PlayStation

How much has gaming expanded or added to your interest in NASCAR?

I have always loved NASCAR and gaming only builds on my interest in the sport. I have owned every game that has been released since about 2002.

Why do you prefer using (Xbox or PlayStation 4, depending on which one they use):

I prefer using PlayStation simply because that is the console I have grown up playing on and have established my friends through. I also like the simplicity of it and the focus on the gaming aspect that Sony creates.

What made you decide to try out for the eNASCAR Heat Pro League?

I honestly believed that this was my chance to become a professional gamer and that this was my way into the sport. I always said I wanted to be a part of a NASCAR team but never had the funding to race growing up. This League is my opportunity to make those dreams become a reality.

A 16-race season is a long one. How do you plan to approach the races and get yourself in position to make the playoffs and eventually win the first eNASCAR Heat Pro League Championship?

I plan to focus on consistency throughout this long season in hopes of being there at the end. I am going to treat the season as a race in itself and do exactly what got me here, which is be patient, consistent, and have a shot at the championship in the end.

Any other interesting facts you’d like to share about yourself?

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and am currently a high school baseball and football coach.
