Sources inside EA Sports have confirmed that NASCAR Kart Racing for the Wii is the only NASCAR video game they will be releasing calendar year 2009.

That means no NASCAR 10 for the 360 or PlayStation 3.

And with EA's NASCAR license expiring after this year, it looks like the state of NASCAR gaming could be in for a major change.

When asked for an official quote, an EA Sports spokesperson confirmed the rumors, but would only go on record to say: "We are continuing our conversations with NASCAR, but nothing has been announced regarding the license or future projects and we don't have any further announcements at this time."

ESPN will have more information on this breaking story as it becomes available.
