    Seeing canadienhits birthday post the other day, and the fact he is 53 and i am 62.
    It got me wondering what the average age here is. How long have we all been involved with
    this SIM.
    Cheers.

    I'm 26, and I think I started around the time of N2/Nascar'99. Didn't start painting until 2009 /2010 though I think.

    For NR2003, and in this forum, since 2007. For the Sierra/Papy NASCAR games, since 1998. For sims in general, since 1990 when Indianapolis 500: The Simulation, came out.

    I turn 18 in two months. Got into sim racing with NR3 back in.. ohh, probably 2005? Got NR2003 in 2014. I started painting late that year, didn't really paint anything of my own that looked good until probably late 2015 or maybe 2016. It all runs together.

    25, 26 in about oh 2 weeks. Got started in NR2003 probably around the time Big Al's & Midnight Graphics began to slowly disappear into the archives of the internet from the NASCAR 09 Days. Didn't really get involved in online racing til about last year, even then still seldomly do.

    I am 27 years old (will be 28 before the end of the year). I got NASCAR Racing Season 2003 (the iMac version of the game) on eBay in 2011 and started using this site later that year to add stuff (car sets, tracks, etc) to the game. Been here as a member of this wonderful community ever since July 27th, 2011. I spend most of my free time either here or over at the iRacing Real-World Racing forum, where I also put up each NASCAR race weekend thread for each individual race in those forums as well.

    I last played/used NR2003 back in 2015 (before my old iMac had the hard drive get corrupted and all of the files were wiped), and I never got the game to run as well as it used to again. I am still debating getting a copy for my gaming PC, but some of the prices on eBay are pretty high (over $100). I got the iMac copy of my game for roughly $48 back in 2011...

    22, got NR2003 in 2011 after watching videos on YouTube of it wishing I had it. Started small with the demo lol. Really got into the painting side for a few years more than the actual racing.

    Happy Birthday starscream24.
    I can not remember what year i first got involved with the SIM. I have just gone through my cupboard,
    and found NASCAR Racing 2, as well as 3 and a expansion pack for 3. that has a legends disck in. Also i have a box set for NASCAR Racing 4box
    with the booklet in, cant see a disk. NASCAR Racing 1999 Edtion box set with all 3 series Cup Grand National and Trucks disc's.plus booklet.
    I remember i got that in Bishop California, paid $42. 95 for it. a 2002 season. and the 2003 season.
    i will let some one else work out the average age as my math's is crap. Hopefully get a few more answers.
    Cheers.

    34, started with N4 back in 2001. I didn't really start getting "decent" at painting until about 2004, and had many long breaks in between due to life. Back when I started the place to go for current schemes was thepitwagon. I don't know if any of those guys are still in the community or not.

    I'm 17, turning 18 in October. I started out playing NASCAR games on my PS2 when I was maybe 6? I've been involved in the NR2003 community since 2014.
