    NASCAR 09 is a great game. There's a few problems here and there, but nothing big.

    Great racing game!

    Rated on June 18, 2008 by earlaps

    I really love this game. I love the many ways I can customize the difficulty and the experience, and the best part is the feel of actually driving in a NASCAR race. EA did get it right this year. Yes...

    A excellent designed and fun racing game.

    Rated on July 02, 2008 by sony_vaio

    Let me say first I am not a Nascar fanboy. I don't even watch the sport unless its the Daytona 500 or something big. Now with that being said I do love racing games like Gran Turismo and Dirt. This g...

    NASCAR 09 is a step-up from NASCAR 08, but EA's laziness has once again ruined the game.
