2021 NSCA Youtube Cup Series Showroom

For the past 2 years, I've been doing these showroom threads for my personal series/offline league, the National Stock-Car Association (NSCA), with the rosters for the Cup Series. While doing some retcon of earlier iterations of series/leagues I ran kinda muddled the waters for my league's history and lore, the more recent editions have been far more connected in terms of continuity. For those of you who either weren't around back in 2019, or need a refresher, here's a quick(ish) history lesson from the league's lore:

The National Stock-Car Association is the culmination of over 70 years of American motorsports ranging back all the way to the early post-war days in the late 1940's. Initially, it was the National Racer's Club in the north, the American Stock-Car Association in the south, and the West, the Automobile Racing Group of America. On the Eastern seaboard, it was a massive rivalry between the NRC and ASCA, while ARGA had been dominating the West uncontested. However, in the 1970s, the United States faced a massive oil crisis, seeing a major toll taken on the race teams of all three organizations. This led to the NRC and ASCA forming an alliance and eventual merger, creating what is now the NSCA in 1975. Meanwhile, ARGA barely scraped by and restructured itself into the American Stock-Car Racing Club, or ASCRC for short, and became a starting point for many of today's top stock-car drivers.

Entering it's 46th season since it's inception in 1975 and inaugural season in 1976, the NSCA's top level of competition - the NSCA Youtube Cup Series - sees the largest overhaul to the points system since the introduction of the Playoffs in 2004: A revert back to a full-season championship! In addition to the points standings, one of the largest silly seasons in over 6 years has just circulated, with personalities ranging from seasoned veterans to hotshot rookies, with plenty of colorful characters in between! Steven Merzlak Racing dominated the second half of the 2020 season, as owner/driver Steven Merzlak led his namesake to a bid for the championship, alongside teammate Tyler Bladerunner.

#13 | Travis Hoefflin
Team: Craigo Autosport
Rookie Season: 2019
Starts: 50
Wins: 6
Top 5s: 17
Top 10s: 24


Despite entering only his third season of Cup Series competition, Travis Hoefflin has quickly become one of the fan favorites. His adaptability on track was almost unparalleled in 2019, and continued to help him improve in 2020. With a new sponsor on board for 2021, Travis looks to take on more fights for wins.


Monster Energy jumps aboard the #13 Dodge after a one year absence from the sport.


Exide returns for a second season on the #13, with the scheme remaining unchanged from last year.

#23 | Elana Keshiel
Team: Red Bull Racing
Rookie Season: 2018
Starts: 86
Wins: 0
Top 5s: 3
Top 10s: 12

Elana Keshiel isn't quite a championship contender, but is far from being the worst driver on the grid. Released from Lionheart-Legacy Racing at the end of 2019, Elana was picked up by Red Bull after they bought out Ryals-Corbett Racing during the 2019-2020 off season. With the team switching to Pontiac in 2021, can Elana improve her performance going into the new year?


Red Bull simplifies their scheme for their 2021 contenders, as the team looks to see better results in 2021. Elana Keshiel runs the blue car for the second year in a row.



#44 | Calvin Richards
Team: Red Bull Racing
Rookie Season: 2020
Starts: 25
Wins: 0
Top 5s: 3
Top 10s: 6

A former Formula 3 champion - and former Red Bull development driver - Calvin Richards was left without a seat in Indycar's 2019-2020 silly season. Tasked with racing for McLaren in 2020 after the departure of their original driver, Calvin has had a decent season in 2020, which has allowed him to come back to be part of the Red Bull family once again. He has had a comparatively much better season than his new teammate in 2020, and Red Bull look to see if both of these young drivers can produce the results they want...


Calvin will run the Silver variant of the Red Bull cars in 2021, bringing the car number he drove at Mclaren over with him.

#88 | Mikey Willard
Team: Hendrick Motorsports
Rookie Season: 2021 Papyrus RoyT Contender

Michael "Mikey" Willard has always dreamed of being a race car driver. He got the chance in the ASCRC 3 years ago, where he would dominate the season, catching the eye of Rick Hendrick. Now, he gets a shot at the big leagues. After skipping the Truck Series and going straight into the National Series, Willard was able to get decent points finishes in 2019 and 2020, finishing 7th and 2nd, respectively. Mikey will driving the renumbered #88 Chevy, a number previously used by Chase Carpenter in 2017-2018, and by Eric Reinhardt Jr. before that. Replacing the departing Joseph Onesto, Willard was meant to have sponsorship from LiftMaster, but last minute contract negotiations fell through, though that doesn't seem to be an issue for the Hendrick crew.....


Axalta jumps over from Willard's teammate John Mullen for 2021, ditching the iconic flames for a more subdued look.


Willard inherits Onesto's UniFirst sponsorship as they stay with the team for at least one more season.


Axalta also unveiled a "Modern-Retro" semi-throwback scheme to the earlier years of Wayne Jefferson's career. The iconic colors will be raced at select events, including the season-opening Daytona 500.

#3 | Jennifer Legacy
Team: Lionheart-Legacy Racing
Rookie Season: 2015
Starts: 184
Wins: 5
Top 5s: 18
Top 10s: 35


Daughter of the legendary Trace legacy, Jennifer moves from the #30 to Lionheart-Legacy's flagship #3 for 2021, replacing the now retired Miles Lionheart. It's been known for a little while that she has had issues with her confidence, and it didn't help when that took a hit with poor showings in the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Despite this, Jennifer continues to grow as a driver, and managed to win at North Wilkesboro in 2020. While there are very few naysayers in the fanbase, many of those in the garage area have a feeling that Jennifer will become a true championship contender sooner than people realize....


NOS Energy follows Jennifer to the #3 - made famous by the late Eric Reinhardt and recently re-popularized by Miles Lionheart - covering a majority of the 2021 season.



The worst-kept secret in the sponsorship silly season was finalized sooner than people were aware of: Best Buy returning to the sport, adorned on Legacy's car. They will be covering the rest of the season for the 2nd-generation driver.

#29 | Keloph O'Sherwood
Team: Pathfinder Racing
Rookie Season: 2017 (Debuted 2016)
Starts: 82
Wins: 0
Top 5s: 4
Top 10s: 10

An Irishman thrust into the world of motorsports, Keloph O'Sherwood found himself in Formula 1 where he was able to secure 13 podiums and 2 race victories. However, one weekend in the late 2000s during an event at Indianapolis, he was given the chance to drive a car normally raced by John Mullen, and decided that should he ever leave F1, the NSCA is where he would try to go. That opportunity came in 2016 where he was given a part-time drive in the Cup Series, going full time in 2017 after not being able to secure a ride for the 2017 F1 season. In 2018, Keloph briefly went back to F1 with Factory Dodge Autosport before being brought back over to the NSCA for the 2019 Cup season, driving for Factory Dodge's new entry into the series. After a difficult two years in FDA's equipment, Keloph moves over to the #29 Pathfinder Racing Ford vacated by Elana Keero at the end of 2020.


Target signs on to sponsor Keloph for technically the entire season, though with a few B2B deals, and a few variants of the primary scheme. Speaking of which, here's the primary:



The first of two variant schemes, a reverse of the primary Target scheme will be seen at the non B2B night races



For the crown jewel events, Target plans to run a chrome-silver scheme variant of the primary scheme. This includes the season-opening Daytona 500.



Reese's is one of the three B2B cars that Keloph will drive this season. The other two being Axe and Clorox

#92 | Hunter Keero
Team: Pathfinder Racing
Rookie Season: 2008
Starts: 436
Wins: 20 | 2020 Daytona 500 Champion, 2014 NSCA Cup Champion
Top 5s: 63
Top 10s: 87


Hunter Keero may be a more reserved and soft-spoken man, but when he speaks his mind, people listen. Raised in Colorado, Hunter grew up near the Pikes Peak International Raceway, where he would begin his racing career in a local karting league. Coming up the ranks, he eventually earned the nickname "Gentle Giant" due to his reserved nature, and the fact that he was 6' 7" tall but adulthood. Given the opportunity to race in the NSCA Cup Series in 2008 with the original Wolfpack Motorsports team, Hunter showed speed, but lacked consistency. Over the years, though, he was able to hone in and refine his driving, being able to keep his car clean even in situations that would normally result in contact with other cars (or the wall). In 2014, Keero moved to Pathfinder Racing, and would find himself top of the dog pile, winning the Cup Series championship. Post-championship, it was quite the roller coaster ride, as Pathfinder Racing had to shut down prior to the 2016 season. Keero moved to Mekkan Pro Racing, where he stayed for two seasons before buying out Pathfinder Racing, and reopening the team for 2018. Last year, Hunter started the season big by winning the Daytona 500, a race that Hunter had previously finished no better than 13th at.


Pepsi returns as Hunter's primary sponsor in 2021, resuming a partnership that had taken a brief halt in 2018 due to contractual disputes with Hendrick Motorsports.



Gearwrench continues to fill the role of Hunter's secondary sponsor and official tool supplier for Pathfinder Racing.

#82 | Leland Hill
Team: Wolfpack Racing
Rookie Season: 2020
Starts: 24
Wins: 0
Top 5s: 0
Top 10s: 1


It's hard to be the one tasked with replacing a legend in the sport of auto racing. It's even harder when your team is struggling both on-track and financially. It's harder still when you came in as a replacement driver for your rookie season and tasked with replacing said legend in your sophomore year in the series. This is what Leland Hill will have to deal with heading into 2021, as he moves over to the #82 car vacated by Zen Lengathan. Hill started last season in the 2nd race of the year, racing in Wolfpack's #84 car after Victor Smith was suspended the rest of the season due to several incidents in Daytona. Wolfpack has been on the decline in recent years, similarly to Williams in Formula 1. Despite this, Leland showed promise, dragging the car up further that it had any right to be at times, and even squeaked out a top 10 at the inaugural race at the Roval.


Leland Hill will retain Zen's sponsors from the previous season, with M&M's running as primary sponsor.......



..... And Interstate Batteries running as the secondary sponsor.



And yes, the contigs have since been corrected to remove Exide and the ROTY decal

#24 | Alan Bledsoe
Team: Bledsoe Brothers Racing
Rookie Season: 2017
Starts: 112
Wins: 4
Top 5s: 23
Top 10s: 40


Despite recent sponsorship woes, Alan Bledsoe continues to soldier on in his #24 Chevy. Younger brother to Paul Bledsoe, Alan sold his stake in the team after the 2018 season to Paul after Paul's retirement at the end of the season. This was done so that Alan could focus on just racing, though it hasn't turned out quite like wanted. After finishing runner-up in points in 2018, Alan slipped to 17th in standings at season's end in 2019. Due to the sudden lack of performance, NAPA left the team, so BBR brought in car rental company Hertz for 2020. Unfortunately, Hertz went bankrupt in the middle of the season, though they had already paid the team for a full season of sponsorship, so Bledsoe Bros. Racing kept the Hertz logos on the car until season's end. This year, the team brings in the 3rd sponsor they've had in as many seasons, with hopes of returning to form come the start of the season....


This year, the #24 car will be adorned in Havoline black and silver, as the company returns to the sport after being absent since the mid 2000s.

#62 | Jacob Craigo
Team: Craigo Autosport
Rookie Season: 2006
Starts: 508
Wins: 16
Top 5s: 59
Top 10s: 96


After making the jump up to Cup with Penske in 2006, Jacob Craigo initially struggled with the move, as he had skipped the National Series after 2 years in the Truck Series. After not having his contract renewed for 2008, He moved to Eric Reinhardt Inc. where he struggled less in car control and more in "The team was collapsing after losing it's star/namesake driver", with the equipment being top 20 at best. After the team shut down at season's end, the Arizona native was picked up by Hendrick Motorsports, where he stayed until opening his own team in 2012, where he has remained since. While not the best of the best, Jacob has gone on to sit 22nd on the all-time wins list (as of 2020), and many consider him a top-tier driver in the current era. Craigo has also made it apparent that he has an eye for talent, as most of the drivers to have driven for his team have had success in their careers as well, including Travis Hoefflin, Eugene Demax, and others. In 2021, Jacob's team will have a slight rebranding, the second time since the team's creation - the first coming in 2016.


McDonald's becomes Jacob's primary sponsor after a significant cut-back from Circle K



NAPA Auto Parts remains on board the #62, with last year's scheme being carried over with minimal changes.



Coca-Cola jumps over from the #13, with some slight alterations

#7 | Elana Keero
Team: Steven Merzlak Racing
Rookie Season: 2019
Starts: 50
Wins: 3
Top 5s: 14
Top 10s: 24


Younger sister to Hunter Keero, Elana started her career strong after being tapped to replace her sister-in-law, Asami Honononami-Keero, as Asami went on more or less permanent maternity leave. Despite starting off with two wins in 2019, Elana struggled with multiple mechanical failures last year. Moving from Pathfinder Racing to Steven Merzlak Racing in 2021, Elana hopes that the step up in equipment translates to better finishes over the course of the season.


FedEx follows Elana to SMR, and despite a refreshed scheme, will continue to show the distinct brands under the FedEx name






ArmorAll also follows Elana over, filling in the few gaps left by FedEx in the sponsor schedule.

#51 | Ricki Fawxson
Team: Craigo Autosport
Rookie Season: 2020
Starts: 25
Wins: 1
Top 5s: 1
Top 10s: 4


Born around the turn of the century with an absentee father, Ricki Fawxson started her racing career on dirtbikes and the lower ranks of the Supercross pipeline. In 2012, she made the transition to 4 wheels, and found immediate success, winning her debut race in the NSCA Dell North Series. As she climbed the ranks, Ricki was dubbed the "second coming" of the late Elana Mullen (whom had paved the way for female drivers to achieve success in the NSCA back in the 1980s before her death in 1989), as her driving style reminded a number of historians of Mullen's from back in the day. Tapped to drive the #91 Factory Dodge Autosport car in 2020, Ricki was able to earn her first career Cup Series victory at the inaugural running of the Roval course at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In 2021, she moves over to drive the third Craigo Autosport entry, the third driver to race the team's 3rd car in as many years.


Fawxson will have Haas moving over with her to be primary sponsor of the #51 Dodge for the entire season, one of only a small few of drivers to have full-season coverage from a single sponsor

Team: Harris Motor Racing Team
Rookie Season: 2019
Starts: 50
Wins: 0
Top 5s: 3
Top 10s: 10


A second generation driver from Canada, DJ Harris found his way into the ranks of the NSCA after competing in the NSCA Canadian Tire Series, where he won the championship in back to back years in 2014 and 2015. Running in the Truck Series in 2016, then moving to the National Series in 2017-2018, DJ made the just to Cup in 2019, though he had less than stellar results. In 2020, however, he fared much better, nearly winning the Daytona 500, and remaining in the top 10 in points for most of the regular season.


Konica Minolta once again remains the sponsor of DJ's Cup effort, with no change to the scheme as well. He does pick up additional sponsorship from Tim Hortons though.

Top 5s: 7
Top 10s: 12


Consistency is something great to have when it comes to motorsports..... That is, unless you're consistently a back-marker driving for a team struggling to even get a lick of manufacturer support and having to reuse chassis that are several years old. Unfortunately for Rei Takita, that is the hand that she has been dealt in the NSCA. Now when I say "back-marker", I don't mean she's at the literal back of the field every race like Rick Ware Racing or Quin Houff, I mean she's usually near the tail end of the points throughout the season as even the other true back-markers of the series gets those underdog days and score big points while Rei's best days still have her sit outside the top 10 for her best finishes. That's not to say she's a bad or slow driver, far from it actually. When she gets into a groove and and shows her true potential, she shines, but at that point she's out performing her equipment, which draws her back down to earth. With her team (more on that in a second) having some big changes come 2021, she's hoping that this will turn things around and allow for better on-track results, hinting that if ARU doesn't improve, she'll go find another ride that will.


VRV streaming services enter what is reportedly their final year in their contract with ARU, with no changes to the scheme Rei will be driving.




#04 | Joshua Michaels
Team: Axiom Racing Union
Rookie Season: 2015
Starts: 184
Wins: 2
Top 5s: 12
Top 10s: 27


After opening RaGE Motorsports in 2015, Joshua Michaels found himself in deep financial debt after a couple of his sponsors pulled out midway through the 2017 season. Despite bringing in Crunchyroll and it's sister streaming service VRV as sponsorship for both cars in 2018, Michaels was forced to either sell his team, or shut it down due to continued troubles. He chose the former, and Axiom Investments LLC, a financial service company, bought the team. Despite poor showings the past couple of seasons - with exception to a few notable finishes (including a win in 2019) - Axiom continues to pump money into the team, and has made the switch to Pontiac with support from Steven Merzlak Racing in 2021 after Toyota gave the team virtually no support compared to the other Toyota teams. Can this be the change the team needs to regain it's footing, despite the dilapidated foundations it was built upon?


Like VRV, Crunchyroll remains for 2021 as a full-season sponsor, with very little change.

Team: Jackie Tang Racing
Rookie Season: 2010 (Debuted 2009)
Starts: 338
Wins: 1
Top 5s: 25
Top 10s: 36


Originally one of Team Penske's prospects coming up the ranks in the late 00's, Jackie Tang developed a style of racing that some have dubbed as "aggressively cautious" - one that's a bit harder on equipment, but more often than not that equipment comes back without very many scratches compared to other cars. After having a break out year in 2014, including a win at Martinsville, Tang entered the 2015 season looking to make a run for the championship, unfortunately fate would have other ideas as during the 13th race of the season at New Hampshire, Tang would be get caught up in a late race crash and be sidelined for the rest of the season due to injury. Tang would also sit out 2016 despite offers to race, and eventually he opened his own team heading into the 2017 season. Despite decent showings in a few races since his return, Tang's on-track performance has noticeably lacked when compared to where he was in the first stage of his career with Penske. Regardless of where he finishes, Tang continues to race hoping to build a program that will one day build future champions of the sport.


KC Motorgroup remains aboard the #81 Toyota for 2021, with no changes to the scheme.



Dr. Pepper also remains, with no changes as well.

#12 | Trey Coleman
Team: Team Penske
Rookie Season: 2019
Starts: 50
Wins: 1
Top 5s: 7
Top 10s: 19


In 2019, Team Penske saw both of their drivers in 2018 move away from racing in the Cup series, leading the team to bring in two rookies for the season - Jason Williams in the #2 and Trey Coleman in the #12. After a massive dip in performance, Penske was faced with a dilemma: Do you keep both drivers and hope for the best, fire one of them and hope a more experienced driver would be willing to jump aboard, or fire both drivers and have a completely new line up for the third year in a row? Penske took the middle option, and brought Ryan Vaughan out of retirement after only a season off the books, and fired WIlliams, as he had only scored 1 top 10 and finished 29th in points while Coleman finished 15th with 5 top 5s. Once the season began, it was clear that Vaughan's experience had bettered Coleman, and as a result the consistency between the two drivers allowed them to make the Playoffs, with Trey even scoring his first career win at Armory Digital.


Shell/Pennzoil will move to be a full-season sponsor of the #12 Mustang in 2021.

#25 | John Mullen
Team: Hendrick Motorsports
Rookie Season: 2002 (Debuted 2001)
Starts: 626
Wins: 14 | 2016 NSCA Cup Champion, 2011 Daytona 500 Winner
Top 5s: 72
Top 10s: 106


Son of the late Elana Mullen, John took up his mother's mantle in 2001 when he made the (part-time) jump to Cup in preparation for his full-time debut in 2002. Early on in his career, Mullen was a weapon on track, seemingly driving with a checkers-or-wreckers attitude every time he raced. Eventually, his driving style irked too many people, and was regulated to driving for a few mid-pack teams in the late 00s. It was during this time that he tempered his driving style, along with help from his old on-track rival-turned-mentor Wayne Foster. Afterwards, Mullen made a return to the top teams, and was able to come home a champion in 2016. However, in 2017, he shocked the NSCA community when he took the year off from driving, citing dealing with personal demons as the reason for his absence after the fact. He returned in 2018, driving for Craigo Autosport, and after a couple years at the team moved over to Hendrick Motorsports in 2020, where he will remain in 2021.

Slightly depressing fact: Mullen is the only driver in the field currently to have raced alongside Eric Reinhardt - having participated in the 2001 Daytona 500 before being taken out in the lap 148 Big One - the same race where Reinhardt was tragically killed on the final lap.


Nationwide will remain aboard the #25 for 2021, with minimal changes to the scheme.



Kelly Blue Book also remains, though with a revamped scheme for the season.

#48 | Cody Llamas
Team: Hendrick Motorsports
Rookie Season: 2002 (Debuted 2001)
Starts: 651
Wins: 66 | 3-TIme NSCA Cup Champion, 2006 Daytona 500 Winner
Top 5s: 70
Top 10s: 129


If you were to ask an NSCA fan back in 2000 if Cody Llamas would be a Cup Series champion, they would probably chuckle and say no. But here we are 21 years later, with the only multi-time champion in the series still currently running, remaining in the famous #48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevy, sitting 7th on the all-time wins list and still going strong while entering his 20th season in Cup. Brought up to the Cup Series full-time in 2002 under the recommendation of fellow champion and mentor Wayne Jefferson to Rick Hendrick, Llamas almost won the championship in his rookie season, and would have had a few ill-timed DNFs not taken him out of the running late in the season. Throughout his career, Llamas has rarely ever not been a championship contender, and even in a few years where he's missed the Playoffs but still finished in the top 15 in points, fans were still adamant about considering him to have had a decent chance those years. His only real "bad" year was horrendous, having finished 33rd in points in 2015, but outside of that Cody has not finished any worse that 17th in standings the rest of his career. Despite a slip in performance from Hendrick after dominating the late '10s, Cody still managed to take 3rd in points last year, and is hoping to use the momentum to earn his 4th title in 2021.


Lowe's continues their sponsorship of Llamas, having sponsored him his entire Cup Series career. The scheme remains the same as it did in 2020.



Ally also returns with the same scheme from last year, having sponsored Llamas since 2019.



New in 2021, Carvana comes aboard the #48 team to sponsor Llamas.

#90 | Eugene Demax
Team: RTD Motorsports
Rookie Season: 2016
Starts: 148
Wins: 5
Top 5s: 17
Top 10s: 35


A modern-day road course ringer, Eugene Demax started racing in the Cup Series for his own team, though used equipment that was built and prepped by Hendrick Motorsports. After a brief one year stint running for Craigo Autosport, Demax then moved back to running his own team, having purchased the equipment and resources of the defunct Katbox Racing, whom folded at the end of the 2018 season. Since then, he's run solidly mid-pack though he doesn't have the points finishes to show for it. He looks to change that in 2021, despite his best chances to win really only being Mosport, Watkins Glen and the Charlotte Roval.


Pepsico renews their partnership with Demax, with Mountain Dew continued to be slapped onto the hood of the #90 Toyota, and even has expanded to include several alternate flavors of the Dew. A new scheme for Regular Dew 2021......



.... A scheme promoting Code Red.....



.... A third promoting the newish Sweet Lightning.......



.... And finally a 4th promoting Baja Blast (my personal favorite flavor!).



In addition, Sirius XM has joined the team as a sponsor to help cover the new events added to the schedule.

#15 | Theodore Cox
Team: Bishop Family Racing
Rookie Season: 2021 Papyrus RoyT Contender


Theodore Cox has been a mainstay in the National Series for the last 5 years, bidding his time and earning experience until the opportunity for a Cup Series ride opened up. He finally got that chance as he will drive the #15 Bishop Family Racing Dodge in 2021, bringing Money Lion over with him from his National Series ride. Mobil 1 moves over to the team as well to provide additional sponsorship.


Money Lion's scheme remains the same as it did on his National Series car the year prior



Mobil 1 goes a bit more classic with their scheme, throwing back to just 10 years ago

#6 | Sean English
Team: English Motorsports
Rookie Season: 2019
Starts: 50
Wins: 6
Top 5s: 24
Top 10s: 27


Sean English started his Cup career by opening his own team. Why? Simply because no one would hire him for to race on the Cup level despite his talent and winning the 2018 National Series title. And to add insult to injury to those who wouldn't take the chance on him, Sean went out and won 3 races and Rookie of the Year honors in the 2019 season, and was a threat to win the title before late season struggles saw him only clinch 7th in the standings. In 2020, he was once again amongst the title fight, and had a shot to win it all in the season finale, but didn't have quite enough luck to cap it all off, finishing 4th in points with another 3 wins to his name. Sean has joked about how since he moved up 3 positions better compared to 2019, he's got to move up another three to 1st place this season, and looks to make that a reality with another strong season!


Valvoline returns to Sean's #6, with a new scheme replacing the gray/black with red, light blue, and dark blue.



PPG Paints has always been an associate sponsor of Sean's, but in 2021 they make the step up to be primary sponsor for a number of events this year.
