NASCAR 08 will be the eleventh installment of the EA Sports' NASCAR video game series. It is currently under development by EA Tiburon. EA has confirmed a release date of July 23 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3. This is the earliest that EA has released a NASCAR game. It also marks the first time the original Xbox has been excluded from the NASCAR lineup since NASCAR 2001.

Tony Stewart will be on the cover of the game, marking his third appearance on the cover of an EA Sports NASCAR game. The Car of Tomorrow as well as the current car will be present in the game, although current videos show the Car of Tomorrow to be generic (no separate manufacturers). You will be given the option to race the current car or the Car of Tomorrow in every NEXTEL Cup Series event. ESPN's NASCAR coverage will also be integrated into the game. Crew chief dialogue for the game has been recorded by Chad Knaus. The Whelen Modified Series will not be included in PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, but the series will still be present in the PlayStation 2 version.

Preview: Top Gun and Days of Thunder: NASCAR Edition
(via Xbox 360 Fanboy) - Let's get this out of the way: I've never seen Top Gun nor Days of Thunder. I know, I know -- I'll turn my Man Card in at the door. The point I'm trying to make is: If there are in-jokes or sly references in either game, I wouldn't notice. That said, Paramount Digital has recruited Jack Epps Jr.
