NASCAR 2011 Delayed

Activision and developer Eutechnyx are starting from the ground up with NASCAR The Game 2011, but the pair's first foray into the sport has been taken back to the garage.

Without citing any particular reason, the game's release date has been pushed back to March 29. It's not a big delay by any means, but it does mean that the title will miss the season-opening Daytona 500 and won't appear until just before the sixth race of the season – Martinsville on April 3. Hopefully by then Jimmie Johnson hasn't already won his sixth championship in a row and there's still a reason to be interested in the season.

Although it sucks that the game won't be available for the very beginning of the season, when EA had the exclusive license, its NASCAR titles never came out in February anyway.
