    Cool cars! One question-are you going to use the new Chevy body or the old one?

    @mike robers As of right now I'm painting every other manufacturer before I make that call. Thanks!

    Blake Barnes is a 24 year old from Atlanta, GA, and although he had a miserable 2016 running for Midwest Motorsports, scoring 0 top 10s, but while completing all but 3% of the laps with only 2 DNFs. He managed to attract enough support from Toyota and Revved Up Racing to pick him up for 2017. That was one of the smartest business decisions in the history of the sport. Not only did Blake have a great rookie year, he ran away with the 2017 NSCS Championship. He racked up 3 poles, 4 trips to victory lane, and an impressive sixteen top 5 finishes. He led in 17 of the 36 races and had clinched the title heading to Homestead. On top of that he won Homestead in impressive fashion, passing his girlfriend Rachel Paisley (#47 Lego Chevy) after a heated battle that lasted nearly 40 laps. Being sponsored primarily by Toyota throughout the year, he was hoping to open up some eyes, and boy did he. Hoping to have another phenomenal season, Blake heads to Daytona with a brand new primary sponsor.

    Amazon.com was incredibly impressed by Barnes' 2017 season, and signed a contract with Revved Up Racing to sponsor the #66 less than a week after the season ended. They will serve as primary sponsor for 26 races this year. Rumor has it they might run other Amazon themed schemes later in the year, but only time will tell.

    Toyota returns to sponsor their headline driver again, and will continue to split the main sponsorship of the car with quickly growing fast food chain Cookout. They will cover 6 races total and will have 2 alternating paint schemes for their races.
    66ToyotaCookOutV1.png

    Speedway will return to the #66 as well this season, covering their usual 4 races, continuing their same partnership from last year. They will also serve as an associate sponsor throughout the year.

    Thank you for looking! More coming soon!

    Aww yeah, love Cook Out. Just wish they would expand up north a ways, the south has all the good fast food joints. Thanks a lot, bud!

    Next driver runs another Camry out of the Revved Up stable. Mat Rodgers, the 25 year old Corpus Christie, TX native, has had some pretty good success in the past couple years. In 2016, he finished 4th in points, with 1 pole, 8 top 5s, and 20 top 10s. He also went to victory lane at Bristol, in dominating fashion. He followed that up in 2017 with another solid year. He returned to victory lane, and scored another 2 poles, along with 6 top 5s and 13 top 10s. He ran very consistent though, and finished 11th in the standings. Hoping to continue his consistent ways, he returns to the seat of the #39 Toyota with some familiar colors.

    Texas Instruments will continue to sponsor the #39 car this year, in 27 total races. They will keep their well known DLP colors, hoping to keep the same rate of success up for 2018. The blue car will run 25 races, and the black will be on the car for two races, one of which being Bristol, where he scored his first career win.

    Axe Body Spray will return to the #39 this year as well, continuing with their advertising of different variants of fragrance. Each scheme will run 3 races totaling a 9 race sponsorship for Rodgers.

    Thank you! Last couple for the time being!

    First up we have the 27 year old from Newton, PA. Maria Connelly drives the #10 Ford for Keystone Motorsports. She hasn't had the best couple years, but for the equipment she has, she doesn't do too bad. In the past 2 years she has scored 1 top 5 and 5 top 10s. She's known to be pretty competitive on the mile tracks, and hopes for a solid year. Keystone Motorsports has shut down one of their entries starting the new season. The #73 JLG Ford has closed, mostly due to Dean Warren starting to focus on his daughters career, and helping her climb through the ranks. With that team shutting down though, it's left Keystone in a difficult position. They want to keep both cars open, but the #10 only has sponsorship for 20 races this year. Rumor has it, if Connelly can get in the top 30 in points by race #18, her sponsors might step up for the rest of the season. It's all on a performance basis, so we'll see how she does in 2018.

    Yuengling will be returning to the #10 for 16 races this season, getting a fresh look. The number has also changed a little bit, but unlike last year, the number fonts will match on her cars.
    10Yuengling1.png

    Mapquest will also return to the #10 team this year, covering 4 races, two more than they had last year. They will be on her car for a few of the short tracks.
    10Mapquest1.png

    Next driver is the other driver for Keystone Motorsports. James Kent is a 26 year old from the steel city, Pittsburgh, PA. He came into the series in 2016, as a promising young gun. 2016 was a pretty solid year for him, although he finished 30th in points, he scored 6 top 10s and led 2 races. Seeing that #36 car out front attracted Chase Bank to his car. They signed a 2 year contract that goes through 2018. Unfortunately, 2017 was a very poor year for the hopeful young star. He only scored 1 top 10 all year and finished 37th in the standings, 2 spots behind his teammate Connelly, and in front of Warren who placed 42nd. He also DNQ'd for a race last year, so they are really hoping for a strong turnaround this season. Needing a solid year, he's trying to keep his sponsor and his #36 Ford open. Since Kent is the only driver who has secure funding through the year, the team hired a new car chief, crew chief, as well as a new lead engineer for the #36 car.

    Chase Bank signed on in the beginning of 2017, covering 30 races per year, and will return with the same scheme they had last year.
    36Chase1.png

    Kent's other sponsor, Sirius XM Radio will also return. They will be on the car for 6 races again this year, all events being night races.
    36SiriusXM1.png

    Thanks for looking! I'll have some more soon!

    Dang you were churning them out last night lol. Great stuff. Love the 36, 39, and 66. Think the 66 is my favorite of those. Actually originally planned to do a cookout scheme for one of my team's cars, but once I scheduled out the other sponsors, I had completely forgot so I may revisit that idea...

    Thanks guys! :)

    Next driver is our last from the Long Haul Racing camp. A new addition to the MENCS, 26 year old Brandon DeMarco from Tampa, FL. Brandon raced in the Nascar Xfinity Series for Long Haul in 2017, putting up some impressive results. Visiting victory lane multiple times along with scoring multiple poles. A very friendly face, he has been considered a "sponsor-magnet" due to his ability to attract partners to support his racing career through the years. He will begin his rookie campaign in 2018, and hopes to carry his great runs over to the Cup side for the Charlotte, NC based team.

    DeMarco will be sponsored by Ollie's Bargain Outlet for 23 races this season. Ollie's has been a partner of Long Haul for a few years now, and is excited to expand on their sponsorship role in 2018.
    60Ollies1.png

    Restaurant chain Waffle House will follow Brandon to the Cup series this upcoming year, covering 8 races during his rookie season.
    60WaffleHouse1.png

    Lastly for DeMarco, Weber Grills will be primary sponsor on the #60 Ford for 5 races in this season. They currently sponsor Holden Collins in the truck series, another talented young gun making his way through the ranks. They are excited to sponsor these Long Haul drivers as they attempt to make names of themselves in Nascar's top series.

    Next couple cars are ready for reveal!

    Here we have the third full time entry for Toyota powerhouse Revved Up Racing. Shane Meeks is a 24 year old from Lafayette, LA. Meeks has had a couple solid seasons for Revved Up. He racked up 2 wins, 4 poles, and 12 top 5s in 2016, en route to a 15th place finishing in the standings. 2017 wasn't as good, but it definitely wasn't too shabby. He finished 18th in the standings with 8 top 10s. Looking for some better results and hoping to return to victory lane in 2018, Revved Up and Meeks are very excited to start the new season. They have had short track speed, but the #81 team has been working very hard over the offseason to get their mile and a half program better, and after multiple testing sessions, they feel they are on par with their teammates. 2018 is looking good for the young gun, and he's anxious to get to Daytona to start the year.

    Jiffy Lube will return to the #81 Camry for 20 races in 2018. Going with a little bit simpler look this time around though, as they wanted to emulate their service facilities a little more.
    81JiffyLube1.png

    Pennzoil, owners of Jiffy Lube (technically they have 28 races total) will be the primary on the car for 8 races this season. Meeks desperately wanted to get this scheme to victory lane last season, but came up just short on several occasions. He feels with its return he can get the Pennzoil colors back to the winner's circle in 2018.
    81Pennzoil1.png

    Planet Fitness will also return to the #81 this year. They will up their primary sponsorship to 8 races, following a strong showing in 2017.
    81PlanetFitness1.png

    Next up we have another rookie to the series. Micah Kuback, 28 year old from Mobile, AL turned a lot of heads in 2017. He raced full time in the truck series, racking up 4 poles, 6 wins, and 17 top 10s. He clinched the most laps lead as well, and barely got beat for the championship by his teammate. Lightning Motorsports, the primary Toyota team in trucks, will expand to the Cup level starting in 2018. As a Revved Up Racing satellite team, they hope to continue their success with the drivers of the #87, as well as the #5 moving up to this highest level in Nascar. It's gonna be fun to watch this Kuback kid, as people think he is the next big thing, once he can reel in his car control just a little bit more. The Championship hunt just got a bit tougher, with the entry of these 2 new drivers from the Atlanta, GA based team.

    Lendingtree will follow Kuback up to the Cup level in 2018, covering a total of 28 races for the rookie. They bring their similar looking scheme, as well as their mascot, who will be riding along for every one of their races this year.
    87Lendingtree1.png

    Siemens will cover the remaining 8 races, very impressed with the results this kid was able to put up in the truck series, they jumped at the chance to get on his car as primary for this season. Looking to bring the Siemens colors to victory lane hopefully more than once this season.
    87Siemens1.png

    Thanks for looking! As usual, stay tuned for more! 14 drivers are completely finished, so we are about a third of the way there!

    Next up we have one of the two teammates from the Philadelphia, PA based A Plus Racing. This team has surprised a lot of people in the past two years, scoring 5 wins between the two drivers. First up we have Kevin Gimball, the 23 year old from Trenton, NJ. In 2016 he had a solid year, finishing 20th in points with 4 top 5s and 11 top 10s. A consistent driver, Gimball really made his presence known in 2017, where he scored 2 poles, 3 wins, and 9 top 10s. Perhaps the most memorable moment was his hard fought win at New Hampshire. He led the majority of the race, but with less than 20 to go, the caution flew, resulting in pit stops. He was beat out by the #61 of Gus St. Pierre and had to line up behind him. With double file restarts in play, 3 lap cars got between the leaders on the restart. Thinking his hopes for a win were dashed, Gimball caught a lucky break with the caution flying again not soon after. With 7 to go they went back green, and the young gun hit the gas. He quickly got around the lappers in 2 laps, and had 5 laps to chase down the #61. On the final lap, coming out of turn 2 he made his move, getting a major run down the backstretch and was able to pull to the inside of St. Pierre. They drag raced through 3&4, coming to the line and resulting in a photo finish with Gimball getting him by a nose. That was one of the top 5 moments of the season for sure, and Gimball and the Toyota team look to carry their strong momentum into 2018.

    Sunoco of course will return to sponsor the majority of races for both the #19 and #91 this season. They will be on the #19 for 22 total races of 2018, hoping to get this sleek scheme back to victory lane.
    19Sunoco1.png

    Canada Dry will also return with their similar colors, covering 12 of the 36 races this season. 10 races will be the regular Canada Dry scheme.
    19CanadaDry1.png

    The other 2 races will be advertising their Blackberry Ginger Ale. (I highly suggest you try this if you can find it, absolutely delicious)
    19CanadaDryBlackberry1.png

    If you think back to 2016, you may recall this team once had a third car, fielded for Pete Dennison. Dennison unfortunately didn't have a good half of the season, and ultimately shut down after 4 DNFs in 19 races. The sponsor on that car was Utz Potato Chips, and after seeing the success this team was capable of, they are going to hop back onboard the #19 car for 2 races, as well as a full time associate of this car.

    Thanks for looking! (Added rear names post render)

    Thanks a lot guys! I was actually seriously considering changing the number font, but kept it for the time being. Keep it uniform haha, but things can still change!

    Here is our second driver for A Plus Racing! Ward Westin, 23 year old from Trenton, NJ, has been best friends with his teammate since they were kids, so its only natural they are both having success at the same time. In 2016, Westin finished 5th in the standings, racking up 5 poles, 2 wins, and 15 top 10s, as well as only 1 DNF. A very solid season which secured him some extra sponsorship. 2017 was very similar, he finished 10th in the standings, and although he didn't find victory lane, he had 2 poles and 18 top 10s. Looking for more success in 2018, he hopes to join his teammate in victory lane multiple times this year.

    As was mentioned before, Sunoco will return to the #91 to cover 20 of the 36 races in 2018.
    91Sunoco1.png

    Ruiz Foods will return as well, upping their sponsorship to 12 races. They will have their brands El Monterey, and Tornados on each side of the car as well as be a full time partner on the #91 this year.
    91Ruiz1.png

    Finally, we have a new sponsor for the young gun from New Jersey. Philadelphia based Beneficial Bank will hop on board for 4 races this season. They are very excited to start their new partnership with the promising young driver, and a promising powerhouse team.

    A Plus Racing's #19 Toyota for Kevin Gimball will be the first to reveal that they will be participating in this year's retro weekend in Darlington, SC. This scheme is based off the livery Sunoco used in Nascar in 1997.

    19SunocoRetro1.png

    No word yet as to how many teams will be participating in the retro scheme weekend, but A Plus is hoping to attract some other teams to join in the fun with this reveal!

    Loving the Sunoco cars. I would say though, if you're gonna do more retros for Darlington, should probably change the contingencies over to the retro versions too ;)
