April is the month of Mortal Kombat and the invasion of Earthrealm is going beyond the domain of games and movies next weekend, to take the onslaught to the race track!

Joey Logano will drive the #20 Gamestop/Mortal Kombat Toyota Camry at the upcoming April 16 Nationwide Series race at Talladega. Logano will be flanked either side by series mascots, Scorpion and Sub-Zero [pictured above], as he looks to improve upon a 2011 slump to fifty-second. Live broadcast of the race begins at 3pm EST on ESPN2. Check local listings for more information.

Mortal Kombat officially hits US shelves April 19 available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The cross-media blitz has begun with the release of Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors, and will continue with the April 12 streaming premiere of Mortal Kombat the live-action series [full story]!
