Start your engines! Electronic Arts Inc., today announced Jeff Gordon, legendary NASCAR® driver of car #24, will be featured as the cover athlete for EA SPORTS™ NASCAR 09. NASCAR 09 is scheduled to ship in North America on June 10 and will offer an authentic, exhilarating stock car driving experience for racing fans of all ages.
Gordon’s prestigious reputation aligns with the new NASCAR 09 career mode, “Sprint for the Cup.” Gordon will bring the game to you as a guide and a mentor to help you build your reputation to become the next NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion. With a completely rebuilt handling model, the game will be more accessible to newcomers while continuing to offer options that will challenge even the most experienced virtual driver.
I enjoyed last years game, hopefully the graphics are improved a bit, i like the sounds of the handling being improved. i really really hope they bring back multiplayer though. I loved being able to have some nice short track racin at bristol or martinsville with some friends though. I really missed that in last years game.
there's a few screenshots included in the link too, looks pretty similar to last year... shocking, i know. hah
