Game description: The road to victory begins with Jeff Gordon as he guides you through an all-new "Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup" Career Mode on a completely-revamped 3D menu interface. With Jeff's help you can sign big-time contracts, build your reputation and earn valuable performance points by dominating in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Two new and entirely distinct handling models let you play NASCAR 09 at your speed. Forgiving "Normal" mode is perfect for getting a handle on the game, while "Pro" mode delivers the authentic, white-knuckle NASCAR racing experience. Own the Track lets you compete against your friends and other gamers at all of hte Sprint Cup Series venues. Every racer's stats are compiled and the best driver at each track is named for the ultimate in bragging rights.
||0.9.8 r4600||GSdx r4600||SPU2-X r4600m||The game works ok but have graphical issues (blinking menus and in races the cars dont have textures). The sound seems OK, no issues found so far. Is pretty demanding with scaling. Needs powerful CPU and GPU.||H3llRaiser|
||1.1.0 r5754||GSdx 5752 SSE41||
||Hangs after some reads.|

||USA v02.20(10/02/2006) Black screen, have the sounds, but dont have video. You can control blindly.|
||v1.5.0-dev-1749-g9d1b27c||GSdx OpenGL (Hardware)||
||Needs EE cache to boot. Texture on cars is corrupt when using Bilinear (Forced), Trilinear (Forced) or Trilinear (Ultra/Slow) texture filtering.
The same applies for the Direct3D 9 and 11 Hardware Renderers. Slight memory leak when driving around the track.
- The game sets to widescreen when it is prompted by the 16:9 ratio setting in the PS2 internal menu.
