While Electronic Arts have been publishing NASCAR games for over a decade, the series has now switched hands to the all-consuming Activision, who will be publishing NASCAR 11.

This trade was actually rumored a while ago based on the claim of an anonymous inside source at NASCAR. The insider said that Activision would be publishing the next series title for all platforms, Wii included, and that it would release two before the Daytona 500 (Feb 20, 2011).

NASCAR 11 will be the first title in the series since NASCAR Kart Racing in February of 2009.
