Summary: Of course it's obsolete now that the new (VERY BUGGY version has come out, but it was a fantastic game!! Hubby played it constantly; great for playing online! Buy THIS version if you do NOT play online. It's much better than the new version, which is really full of bugs. Buy the NEW 2014 version if you DO play online... cuz everyone on the online circuit has moved to the 2014 game.
Summary: Great game, I love how you start in the truck and work your way up to the Cup car. The car handles well and you have Jeff Gordon to walk you threw any problems you might have. If you are looking for a NASCAR sim game then this is for you. The last two games they put out are more of the arcade feel, but 09 has more of a sim feel. I hope this helped someone to make a choice between the new and old NASCAR. Don't get me wrong the newer ones do look better.
For those that want to see all the diverse tracks of all the NASCAR series.

Summary: Race fans will love this! I really enjoy getting to race in the Nationwide series as well as the Sprint Cup and even the Craftsman Truck series. Because of the three series represented this may be the best NASCAR game going (even over NASCAR 2011).
