American Pinball has partnered with Mattel to be a sponsor for the Legends Tour Virtual Car Show. The first of two events will be livestreamed on the Hot Wheels Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/hotwheels ) this coming Thursday, 11/05, at 7:00 pm CST. American Pinball's very own Josh Kugler, Director of Software Engineering, will be making a special guest appearance, and the pinball machine will be featured on the show.

The Hot Wheels pinball machine will also be featured in the Grande Finale, while will be livestreamed on Saturday, November 14th at 7:00 pm CST. More details to come regarding this star-studded event.

What is the Legends Tour?

Now in its third year, the Hot Wheels Legends Tour is a global search for the next fan-made custom car to be transformed into an actual special edition Hot Wheels die-cast toy. The Hot Wheels Legends Tour is made possible in partnership with Walmart, and title sponsor Mobil 1. Over twelve million fans have watched this year’s ONLINE LIVESTREAMED EVENTS. And the excitement is building with the celebrity panel of judges making their picks leading up to the final crowning of the champion. The semi-final broadcast of the Hot Wheels Legends Virtual Tour will be November 5th at 7PM CST. Watch the LIVE judging featuring such top motorsports athletes as Colette Davis, Jarod DeAnda, along with notable auto experts and Hot Wheels designers. The finalist from the November 5th Legends Tour virtual stop will join all other Legends Tour finalists at an epic Grand Finale featuring a number of A-list celebrities (November 14th @ 7:00 pm CST) for a chance to have their custom car immortalized as an iconic Hot Wheels die-cast car sold in stores.

not sure I would have expected to see any pinball company as a co-sponsor of something with Walmart and Mobile 1, kudos American Pinball, nicely done. I'll have to check it out.

Branching out to people not already into pinball is the goal.

Did check this out, some of those cars were really cool. Always great seeing pinball get some exposure. They introduced Josh as CEO, thought he was a rules/programming guy?

Josh is Director of Software Engineering. The host flubbed his title, but I am sure Josh is glad to have received the promotion.
