NASCAR 09, the latest version of EA Sports' racing simulation, has shipped today and will be available in retail stores starting tomorrow.
The twelfth iteration of EA's NASCAR series, NASCAR 09 features Jeff Gordon on the cover and in an advisory role throughout the game, guiding players to and through the game's major features. It marks Gordon's first time on the cover since NASCAR 06, where he ironically was on the cover with teammate Jimmie Johnson. It's the job Gordon did mentoring Johnson that led him to be the driver in this year's game that teaches you the ropes.
NASCAR 09 offers new features like the Paint Booth customization tool, a supplementary driving model designed to usher inexperienced players into the game, and more adaptable gameplay. It retails for $59.99 on next-gen systems and $39.99 for the PS2.
