Microsoft is promoting Halo 5: Guardians in the most American way possible.


Microsoft is partnering with two American NASCAR teams to bring Halo 5: Guardians-themed liveries to two cars. This is the first time for Halo to be represented by two cars on a racetrack at the same time.

The race takes place October 18 on the Kansas Speedway for the Hollywood Casino 400. Hendrick Motorsports’ Car No. 88 will bear the Master Chief paint scheme, while car No. 1 for Chip Ganassi Racing bears the Spartan Locke livery.

There’s a trailer too, with combat helmets turning into crash helmets.
