NASCAR racing. A series of left turns for some, a breathtaking motor sport packed with action and drama for others. It's also an enduring franchise for EA Sports, with the publisher's driving teams not getting a rest for the 2009 season.

If you find the prospect of jumping head first into one of the most testosterone fuelled motor sports going (and, let's face it, they pretty much drive really fast tanks out on the tracks) fills you with trepidation, fear not! Four-time Sprint Cup Series Champion, Jeff Gordon, is on hand to guide you through the game.

You'll need all the help you can get if you're going to win contracts in the Sprint Cup Series, the Nationwide Series, the Craftsman truck Series and the Whelan Modified Tour. If even Jeff can't help you, however, EA has also included an instant rewind function. If you find yourself ploughing into a wall, you can use skill points to rewind the action and take another crack, hopefully without concertinaing your bonnet this time.

EA has also included an EA Sports Family Play mode, featuring simplified driving controls so that maybe, just maybe, you can convince your mum to have a go.
