"I'm thrilled that EA has chosen me as their cover athlete for the game this year," said Sadler, driver of the No. 38 M&M's Ford Fusion for Robert Yates Racing. "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," Sadler added. "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."
Todd Sitrin, vice president of marketing, EA Tiburon, stated, "Over the years we have watched Elliott deal with some of the most exhilarating racing situations in the sport and come out on top. He represents what NASCAR 07 is all about, dealing with difficult situations and not letting it get to you, but instead focusing on the next opportunity and doing what you can to win."
Elliott Sadler comes from a long line of racing history on the short tracks of Virginia, his home state. He spent two years in the NASCAR Busch Series before joining the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series ranks in 1998 with Wood Brothers Racing. After four seasons, Sadler and Wood Brothers parted ways and he secured a spot behind the wheel of the No. 38 M&M's Ford at Robert Yates Racing.
2006 marks Sadler's eighth season of competition on NASCAR's premier circuit, where he has amassed three wins, a Gatorade Duel victory and six pole positions. Sadler has the distinction of being one of only four drivers to stay in the top-10 in points throughout the entire inaugural Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup in 2004.
