Gordon’s prestigious reputation aligns with the new NASCAR 09 career mode, “Sprint for the Cup,” but not only is Gordon featured on the cover of NASCAR 09, but the four-time champion will take you under his wing and guide you through some of the key aspects of the game. Working with you through an all-new interactive 3D menu interface, Gordon will guide you through the game’s major features and advise you throughout your career, just as he has done with real-life protégé Jimmie Johnson.

With NASCAR 09, your reputation is on the line and your mentor Jeff Gordon is your guide.
