    EA Sports brings its NASCAR series to the Seventh Generation gaming consoles with NASCAR 08.

    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    NASCAR 08 was released on the Playstation 2, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.  Tony Stewart would have his third cover appearance of the series, his first two being NASCAR 2001 and NASCAR Thunder 2004.  In Europe Juan Pablo Montoya would be featured on the cover, due to his international recognition as a former Formula 1 driver.

    It is the first game to feature the Car of Tomorrow, and the user has a choice between running the new car or the current car of the time.  And unlike the current car featured in the game, the Car of Tomorrow did not display any manufacturer logos on the car.

    The PS3 version of the game had Sixaxis motion built in as a steering option.

    The PS2 version lacked some of the updated gameplay features of the next generation platforms, although it still had the Whelen Modified Tour, a series that was removed from the other versions.
