  1. A template for a Nissan Altima race car. Would not be compatible with the current generation NASCAR (it has standard-size 18-inch wheels instead of the 15-inch NASCAR wheels), but would probably be compatible with the Next Generation NASCAR, or your own racing series. Based on the 2018 Nissan Altima. Base blueprint was from The-Blueprints.com, and was traced and modified. Feel free to use it, it's my first take at making a base template, so bear with me if it isn't exactly perfect. C&C Welcome and Appreciated.
  2. Happy new year & welcome one & all to the 2018 NASCAR season thread! Well its that time once again folks, counting the days down to the clash & then the Great American race. 2017 had been a very interesting season, with the dominance of Martin Truex Jr. the points system that was put into place, Monster Energy becoming the sponsor & last but not least, saying goodbye to Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth (who knows how long) & Danica Patrick as well as the Chevrolet SS. With 2018, we see some changes happening, along with almost a changing of the guard. Chevrolet brought in the Camaro ZL1 unexpectedly (& happily surprised) but also we see William Byron jump up to Monster & Alex Bowman taking over the 88 but we also see Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. join Richard Petty Motorsports & RPM form an alliance with Richard Childress Racing & switching to Chevrolet. I think Byron vs. Wallace will make for a really good battle for ROTY Now let's get down to nitty gritty. 2018 we restart at Daytona & a new schedule for the playoffs including Las Vegas, Richmond & the Roval in Charlotte, will we see the same dominance from Truex & or Toyota, or will Chevy say enough is enough? Will Chase Elliott finally get that first win that he has before hand only to slip away before. Will Jimmie break the barrier & get his 8th championship? Will Kyle Busch shurg off his 2nd place finish to get his 2nd championship? So many questions, so little time... So a run down that has happened (thanks again to @DNAsports & many others) Monster Energy: -Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. join Richard Petty Motorsports as RPM forms an alliance with Richard Childress Racing & Chevrolet - William Byron will drive the 24, while Chase Elliott will drive the 9 - Aric Almiorla joins Stewart Haas Racing & Kurt Busch resigned with SHR - Ryan Blaney joins Team Penske in a 3rd car - Paul Menard joins Wood Brothers Racing - Erik Jones joins Joe Gibbs Racing - Kasey Khane goes to Leavine Family Racing Predicitions ROTY: William Byron Regular season champion: Martin Truex Jr. Playoff champion: Jimmie Johnson Will Ford switch cars in 2019? Yes, I see the Mustang coming in, especially if the reports of Ford discontinuing the Fusion are true. Any new manufacture plans? I think we may see Dodge announce something if the muscle cars have anything to say. Welcome to 2018, let the fun begin!
  3. Hey guys! I made some art to try to get some traction on mine and another user (Logan I'm blanking on your screen name here) here's racing twitter/creative outlet/racing blog/youtube channel @PushTVracing. You all should be following it! With the NASCAR playoffs coming up this weekend I made a template and plugged in the drivers who made it. Let me know what you think! Aric Almirola Ryan Blaney Alex Bowman Clint Bowyer Kurt Busch Kyle Busch Austin Dillon Chase Elliott Denny Hamlin Kevin Harvick Jimmie Johnson Erik Jones Brad Keselowski Kyle Larson Joey Logano Martin Truex Jr.
  4. For the fourth year in a row, NASCAR will celebrate its heritage by teams running throwback paint schemes at the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, SC. The practice started in 2015 when NASCAR moved the classic race to its traditional Labor Day Weekend slot on the schedule after a decade of wandering the calendar. These are the schemes that have been unveiled so far. 2018 NASCAR Southern 500 Throwback Weekend Paint Schemes
  5. SO, I was playing F1 2015 yesterday and then saw someone had just recently posted a template for the new formula car, and wanted to do some concepts for it. I know NASCAR like the back of my hand, Formula is a distant follow. I wanted to imagine some NASCAR teams sponsors as formula cars, with Haas being the obvious crossover (the 14 car will look similar to how i think they should really look) but I only have 2 completed so far. I know they're a touch plain to start, but I didn't want to go all in if nobody would bat an eye. So enjoy, leave some C&C or let me know if you want to see some more! If this gets a positive reaction I'm planning on doing a car for all 36 chartered teams. Here is the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates #1 Cessna and the Penske Racing #2:
  6. A while ago, of all places, North Wilkesboro Speedway was trending on facebook. It was because this video of a guy flying his drone over the dilapidated speedway surfaced. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iyfn-_AW1h4 The track was one of those good ol' tracks in the south that hosted NASCAR events since the beginning, but got pushed out of the sport due to not being in a major market. My dad went to the last Winston Cup race there, in 1996. The track would probably need millions put into it to even host anything, let alone the top racing series in the country. But I'm coming to the rescue! The track lies pretty close to the other true short tracks of Bristol and Martinsville. My thinking is that nostalgia would be the driving force into restoration. Many drivers think that more tracks like this should be put on the schedule, so here's my attempt to make it. So North Wilkesboro is outside a small town of the same name. There isn't much of a population, but neither does Bristol and Martinsville. The track lies right next to some houses and a highway. There isn't much parking, so that would be the biggest thing. There is space, so a ramp from the highway and pedestrian bridges from a massive parking lot on the other side of the highway would be two things that would help the track. The track itself may need to be scrapped. It needs new stands, to be weeded, and paved. But the somewhat flat track still remains. My plans is to keep the track the same, and build around it. The walls are old, and would need to be replaced. Since the incident at Daytona with Kyle Busch, I made sure every inch of wall that could be hit from the track was protected. The walls would also be painted like the old days, red and white stripes to add to the nostalgia. The infield would be completely paved and have a garage for teams, a media building, and a tunnel leading outside, where the haulers would be. My thinking was to make the inner buildings one story for sight lines. The tunnel would be somewhat shallow, since only cars, and emergency vehicles would have to go through. The haulers take up a lot of space, and would have more space for 3 series to run at in a weekend. The tunnel would also make the stands go completely around, and no wall would have to be temporary. Outside the track, they would repave over all the empty areas for easy walking capability. Now to the stands. I designed this after a football stadium. The current covers about 3/4ths of the bottom bowl. I would raise it up, then complete it around. Raising it helps the fans get out through tunnels under the stands leading to the outside. There would also be a walkway on top of the stands that more people could walk around, or head up to their 2nd deck seats. There would be ramps to the ground level near the press boxes that tower over the stands. I put a big video board on the end zone, so there wouldn't need to be several. There would be advertisements behind the end zones to keep the sound in for the surrounding area too, and for highway advertisement for tickets. Finally, I put a lot of solar panels because I think renewable energy should be put into any new stadium built. I made the initial plans a month ago, but I finally finished the master plan, and thought everyone would love to see just how this turned out.

  8. With the Clash at Daytona in 8 days and the Daytona 500 on the 18th, it seemed like the perfect time to start a thread for the 2018 season. CUP SERIES GearWrench and Cessna return to the #1 of Jamir McMurray in 2018 with fresh new looks. With Miller Lite scaling back sponsorship, Discount Tire will pick up some of the slack and sponsor Brad Keselowski for 10 races in 2018. DOW Chemical, American Ethanol, and AAA all return to the #3 of Austin Dillon with new looks in 2018. Jimmy John's returns to Kevin Harvick with a slight update, while Busch Light will be featured in a few races along with Busch. Advocare returns to the #6 of Trevor Bayne in a new all-black paint scheme. Danica Patrick will make her final NASCAR start at the Daytona 500 with Premium Motorsports in the #7, with GoDaddy partnering with Patrick for her last race. Same team, new look for Chase Elliott. He will drive the #9 Chevy for Hendrick Motorsports to honor his father Bill Elliott and his hall-of-fame career. Hooters, Mountain Dew, NAPA, Kelly Blue Book, and SunEnergy will all sponsor Elliott in 2018. Aric Almirola makes the transition to the #10 for Stewart-Haas Racing, bringing long-time sponsor Smithfield with him. Ryan Blaney will drive the third car for Team Penske, piloting the #12 Ford with sponsorship by PPG Paints and Menards. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will look to carry his success in 2017 into the new season with a new look from Fastenal. Daniel Suarez looks to avoid a sophomore slump in his second season at the Cup level with new looks from Arris, Stanley, and Peak. Erik Jones makes the jump from Furniture Row to Joe Gibbs Racing, replacing Matt Kenseth in the #20 Toyota. Paul Menard will bring the family name and fluorescent yellow to the iconic Wood Brothers #21 for the 2018 season. The #5 becomes the #24 as 20-year-old William Byron will run for Rookie of the Year with Hendrick Motorsports in 2018 with sponsorship from Axalta, Liberty University, UniFirst, Ryan Newman returns to Richard Childress Racing for 2018 with a new look from Grainger and Caterpillar plus new sponsorship from Bass Pro Shops and Liberty National. CreditOne Bank takes over as the primary sponsor of Kyle Larson and the #42 for Chip Ganassi Racing in 2018. Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. will run for Rookie of the Year in 2018 driving the famous #43 for Richard Petty Motorsports as the team makes the move to Chevy. AJ Allmendinger returns to JTG Daughtery Racing in 2018 with Kroger coming back as the primary sponsor. Jimmie Johnson will go for a record eighth title in 2018 piloting a new all-black Lowe's paint scheme. 5-Hour Energy and Bass Pro Shops partner to sponsor 2017 Champion Martin Truex Jr. and the #78 team for 30 of the 36 races in 2018. Alex Bowman replaces the now-retired Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the #88 for Hendrick Motorsports with sponsorship from Nationwide and Axalta. Finally, Kasey Kahne moves to Leavine Family Racing for the 2018 season and will drive the #95 Procore Chevy.
  9. Happy 2017 everyone, just felt like yesterday that the 2016 season ended & now it just seems like a bit of a whirlwind now especially with Monster Energy becoming the new sponsor, Stewart Haas switching to Ford & Jimmie Johnson winning his 7th championship. However, I think this will be an interesting season coming up, the next thing we know, they'll be starting to test in Daytona. I'm looking forward to the new season, to see what happens next... Well let's get started, here's what we saw at SHR earlier today...
  10. So I read this article by Bob Pockrass, ESPN's NASCAR writer. It basically says that NASCAR has chased money and left smaller tracks that have a history in NASCAR feel disconnected from the NASCAR world with their local short track series. He talks about how Winston did a lot for the small tracks and you still see Winston logos around these tracks, 15 years after they left the sport. http://www.espn.com/racing/nascar/story/_/id/19110879/nascar-embracing-roots-racing-sport-needs-most It's a fairly decent article, and brings up a good point. Every time they run a short track race, just like this weekend at Bristol, the drivers and fans love it and want more gritty short track racing. The truck series runs at Tony Stewart's dirt track Eldora every summer, and it's a fun event and when that gets ran, people say that a weeknight race would be very cool to see in the top series. Brad Keselowski is a big proponent of this, and would be considered the poster boy of the weeknight race movement. So in my typical fashion, I ran with an idea. I had huge plans, but couldn't come up with much graphics outside of a logo. Think of this as a big connected series with my race track restoration concepts. Did you know the day after the MLB All Star game is the only day of the year there isn't any scheduled game of the big 4 sports? I would want to take advantage of that. Introducing the Roots Derby. So this is a mix of the Winter Classic and the Kraft Hockeytown events. The tracks listed above hosted the Cup series at one point, and all are in the Southeastern USA, or close to Kentucky, a trip that would be manageable on a short week. Each year, the host track would be announced and on a rotating basis would host a single cup race for the first time in decades. The idea would be that renovations up to spec give these tracks as close to a cup facilities they can, and letting the track keep most of those things. That includes fences, SAFER barriers in the turns, and pit walls when needed. No repaving or anything, just the simple fixes and a fresh coat of paint. NBC Sports could broadcast out of a mobile studio, instead of the equivalent of a high school football media center. Also split the cost of a new leaderboard branded with Monster logos. (This is Talladega, but very similar to what most tracks have) Well what about seating? I've looked at the capacities, and most of these are around 10,000. I propose decent sized temporary grandstands, like a street circuit. Why? Well there's a few reasons. A track like Gresham Motorsports Park doesn't need 40,000 seats permanently, but would take a small expansion. NASCAR tracks also make more TV money than ticket money, something there would be an explosion of when you only have to compete against the WNBA and the AAA baseball All Star Game. Most, if not all of these tracks are in big spaces of land, so temporary seats would be easy to accommodate. Not to mention, these tracks don't have the amenities to host much more fans than they can already. Lastly, you won't have people driving from out of town for a Wednesday night race, so mostly locals would be at this event. That brings me to another point, this race would be 300 laps. Segment wise, 75-75-150. Bristol and Martinsville run 500 laps, which is great but just so long. More and more people are advocates of shortening races, and this would be a good platform to do this. A 500 lap race on a weeknight would take forever, especially if there is a delay. Cup would take up the whole day on the track. Do practice during the day, qualifying at about 6, and race at 7:30. The day before would be all to the local promoters. Asphalt racing pales in comparison to dirt tracks on a weekly basis. My idea is to have a Stock Showcase, a televised appetizer to the event the next day. This would be where the track makes most of it's money. Have locals get some spotlight and possibly a doorway to the better series. The main event purse would be significant, something a lot of small time racers would value. I don't imagine a back marker NASCAR team offering a ride in the Roots Derby due to NASCAR licensing, but hey maybe a streamlined process could get these guys in. Finally, financials. Split the Roots Derby cash between the promoters, NBC Sports, and whoever else gets a cut(me, it was my idea after all). The track would have a decent nest egg to possibly renovate media centers to get a legit shot at hosting some form of NASCAR on the regular. I think that's it! A lot to take in after about 3 weeks of planning. If you're somehow brought here from twitter or whatever, check out this big thread where I have a fictional track company and I renovate tracks. http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/103202-raysoxs-racetrack-restoration/
