week, another cover "athlete" announcement from EA. I say athlete because it's
for the cover of Nascar 07, and while skilled, drivers certainly aren't
athletes. Anyways, this year's version of the popular Nascar series will
features Elliott Sadler on the cover. Described as longtime gamer, Sadler has
been heavily involved in all aspects of EA’s NASCAR franchise since he joined
the Cup ranks in 1999, including taking home the championship trophy from last
years’ EA Sports Drivers Gaming Competition in Bristol, TN.

“I’m thrilled that EA has chosen me as their cover athlete for the game this
year,” said Sadler. “I’ve been a big fan of this game for a while now and play
it as often as I can whether I’m on the road or at home. The changes for the
game this year are really going to impress folks. They’ve brought the excitement
and speed aspects of our sport to the forefront and put the control in the hands
of the player. It’ll feel like you are right there in the car with me, feeling
that adrenaline rush I get every time I’m out there on the track.”

NASCAR 07 will be on store shelves September 6th and is rated “E” for (Everyone)
by the ESRB. The game will be available on the PlayStation 2, PSP, and the
original Xbox.
