EA announced today that it had chosen its cover athlete for EA Sport NASCAR 09. The cover athlete will be Jeff Gordon driver of the #24 for Hendrick Motorsports. Gordon is ranked the 6th all time in cup series wins.
Gordon has 81 wins and is a four time Sprint cup Series champion. Gordon is also part owner of his racing team. Jeff Gordon’s game character will be your mentor as you move up in the game’s racing series.
"It's exciting being on the cover of NASCAR 09," says Gordon. "The game is as real as it gets and it's been great being involved with it on this level. I look forward to helping gamers in NASCAR 09." EA’s NASCAR 08 was lots of fun on the PS3, so I am expecting a lot from the new title. NASCAR 09 will be available on PS3, PS2, and Xbox 360.
