Last week we reported on a possible new NASCAR-themed Forza 6 expansion pack. Today, though, the official trailers and details for the pack have been released.

Seen above, the official expansion trailer shows off the fact that America’s favorite motorsport will be arriving to Forza 6. The trailer also shows 24 of Forza 6’s new 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Stockcars in action at tracks around the world, and the new rumored new track, The Homestead-Miami Speedway.

A secondary video which also shows off the pack was also published by Microsoft to the Xbox YouTube channel. This video brings Forza fans behind the scenes with NASCAR champions Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, and Chase Elliot. Overall, in the video the three champions detail how they influenced the development of the Forza 6 expansion pack.

The pack will be available today for $20 and features 24 cars from the 2016 NASCAR season as well as an all-new career mode. With some of the cars ranging from the Ford Fusions of Penske Racing, Hendrick Motorsports’ Chevy SS, and Joe Gibbs Racing’s Toyota Camry, these cars represent five of the most celebrated and successful teams in NASCAR Sprint Cup series history. Microsoft describes the pack as the following:

The intensity of driving these quintessentially American race cars is at the heart of the NASCAR Expansion experience. Players will be able to drive twenty-four 2016-season NASCAR models from teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, Chip Ganassi Racing, Stewart-Haas Racing, Hendrick Motorsports, and Team Penske, including the cars of top-flight NASCAR drivers Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, and Chase Elliott. Johnson, Busch, and Elliott also serve as the stars of the “Voices of Motorsport” in the NASCAR Expansion, introducing fans to the history and technology of NASCAR.
