EA Sports has sent us some screenshots from NASCAR 08, including Tony Stewart being announced as the cover athlete.
"Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today that two-time NASCAR NEXTEL CUP Series champion Tony Stewart will appear on the cover of NASCAR 08, scheduled for release this summer under the EA SPORTS™ brand. Developed by EA Tiburon, NASCAR 08 is the first title in the NASCAR franchise to be made available on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and Xbox 360™ video game system from Microsoft.

“Being on the cover of NASCAR 08 is an honor for me and my team,” said Stewart, driver of the No. 20 Home Depot Chevrolet for Joe Gibbs Racing. “I am really impressed with the next generation game features and graphics - the realism and authenticity are amazing.”

Stewart’s two NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series championships have come in the past four years, and since he entered Cup in 1999, he has amassed 29 victories in NASCAR's top series and never finished lower than 11th in the final point standings. During his most recent championship season in 2005, the Columbus, Ind., native won five races and led all Nextel Cup drivers in top-five and top-10 finishes, which included a victory at Stewart’s “home” track – Indianapolis Motor Speedway – when he won the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard. Throughout his career, Stewart has finished in the top-10 in 59% of the races in which he has competed."

But seriously, this is the first NASCAR game I am looking forward to. I'm sure it will look great. I hope it plays great with the MS racing wheel too.
