The NASCAR season is once again in full swing, and EA has announced they'll be bringing their popular franchise to the PS3 and Xbox 360 for another go-round.

They've selected Tony Stewart – in the number 20 car – to grace the cover of NASCAR 08 , which should be released some time this summer. Fans of the sport will either love or hate the choice, as Stewart is well known for his aggressive driving and willingness to start a tussle…verbal or otherwise.

Much like that "Road to the Show" feature in MLB 07: The Show , the latest NASCAR installment will let you start off as a rookie driver and move into a full racing career. Of course, we assume you'll actually be starting in NASCAR, and not racing in some little stock league somewhere. Finally, like most all next-gen games these days, the game will feature online multiplayer for up to 16 players.

We'll let you know when EA drops the checkered flag on a specific release date.
