EA Sports Challenge: NASCAR '08

Jack SiglyCorrespondent IJuly 16, 2008

After starting the online PlayStation 2 NASCAR '08, me and a few of my boys chose to play it cool—we made a bet: Five seasons, all 36 races, points count, no Bud Shoot Out or All-Star race.

As of right now, we have seven people (the rest are computer animated). We have Cody, Bart, Ken, David, Mike, Sarah, and me.

Cody is racing as Martin Truex, Jr. (No. 1 car) , Bart is racing as Kurt Busch (No. 2 car) , Ken is racing as Denny Hamlin (No. 11 car), David is racing as Jeff Gordon (No. 24 car), Mike is racing as Bobby Labonte (No. 43 car), Sarah is racing as Dale Jarrett (No. 44 car), and I'm racing as Kyle Petty (No. 45 car).

So here are the first season's stats:

Cody: won no races, two top-fives, six top-tens, and finished third in points.

Bart: won two races, had three top-fives, three top-tens, but finished 22nd in points due to his not finishing many races.

Ken: won one race, two top-fives, three top-tens, and finished tenth in points.

David: won no races, two top-fives (including one runner-up at Bristol), three top-tens, and finished ninth in points.

Mike: won four races, six top-fives (including three runner-up finishes at Kansas, Lowe's, and Dover), a total of eight top-ten finishes, but still managed to finish second in points.

Sarah: won no races, got no top-fives, one top-ten, finished 43rd in points.

Me: I won one race, got two top-fives, seven top-tens, and finished sixth in points.

I will keep you updated once the next season is over.
