(NASDAQ: ERTS) features NASCAR’s most popular drivers, famous racetracks, realistic graphics and challenging strategy., NASCAR 07 launches today on capable Sprint and Nextel wireless phones, and will be available on all other major US mobile carrier networks on March 1st.

“NASCAR is an incredible partner and the sport is a visceral, adrenaline-filled experience that really gets people fired up. For the mobile version of the game, we wanted to capture that spirit of action and intensity,” said Travis Boatman, vice president worldwide studios, EA Mobile. “NASCAR 07 delivers gameplay way beyond any other racing title on the platform – gameplay that will appeal to a wide range of players. If you like racing games, you will enjoy the challenge, and if you’re a fan of NASCAR, you will love the authenticity.”

Players on the go can choose to enter a quick race or compete in The Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup, the climactic final 10 races at the end of the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series season. Gamers can race on the NASCAR circuit’s most legendary tracks, including Daytona International Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Darlington Raceway, Pocono Raceway, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. The key to entering Victory Lane is a player’s ability to draft off other cars, block potential challengers and keep their car under control at high speeds. Incorporating authentic NASCAR racing elements, drivers whose cars spin out and hit the wall or one of their competitors will incur car damage and are left to limp to the pits for repairs or drop out of the race.

NASCAR 07 also features realistic audio including engine roar, tire squeal, crowd sounds, and more. Similar to the guidance a real NASCAR driver receives while on the track, NASCAR 07 players have spotters to help them skillfully maneuver through race traffic and avoid potential accidents. Driving skills aren’t the only keys to success – players also must manage pit stops and monitor fuel and tire wear levels.

NASCAR 07 also is available for PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® videogame system from Microsoft and PSP (PlayStation®Portable) system.

Standard Sprint data charges also apply to all NASCAR 07 downloads. For detailed information on the availability of NASCAR 07 for mobile, visit www.eamobile.com.
