Richard Childress Racing, in its 50th anniversary year, is thrilled to compete in the inaugural season of the eNASCAR Heat Pro League, a 16-race series presented by NASCAR, 704games and the Race Team Alliance that will be played online by some of the best NASCAR Heat 3 gamers.
Fourteen of NASCAR’s top teams each drafted two players, one for PlayStation4 and one for Xbox One, this past weekend in Phoenix in the first-ever eNASCAR Heat Pro League live draft.
With driver Austin Dillon and Chief Technology Officer Dr. Eric Warren on hand to make the picks, RCR[JP3] selected Joey Stone and Jordan McGraw. Joey Stone, a Canton, Georgia native, will compete for eRCR on PlayStation4 with the No. 8 Chevrolet and Jordan McGraw, out of Bridgeport, Texas, will compete for eRCR on Xbox One with the No. 3 Chevrolet.
Stone, more commonly known by his gamer tag Joemeister24, is 22 years old. In 430 PS4 races, Stone has 95 wins and an average finish of 3.265116.
“I am very excited to drive for Richard Childress Racing,” said Stone. “When I was looking through the draft order, I thought to myself, I think this is the place where I need to be.”

Jordan McGraw is a 31-year-old with the gamer tag TheJMacAttack34, who also serves as a broadcaster for some online races as well. McGraw has 161 wins in just 477 races on Xbox One and holds a solid third-place average finish.
“I just wanted to start off with how excited I am to be a part of RCR’s first eSports campaign,” said McGraw. “I expect big things from us. It’s going to be a lot of fun, a lot of work, but I can’t wait to get some wins”
