I remember the series of races in Japan well. I wish they'd do more of them either there or elsewhere to spread the word about NASCAR around the world. Australia has a "Touring car" series much like NASCAR in it's earlier days in that the cars are based on production cars, not full-on race cars like these, but I think they'd be receptive of our cars and our drivers. (Marcus Ambrose was a three time champion in New Zealand's version of the Australian series)

About

HERE IS ANOTHER CUSTOM BUILT NASCAR I DID OF MARK MARTIN'S 1997 VALVOLINE/ KOSEI CAR. MARK RACED THIS CAR IN SUZUKA JAPAN IN 1997 IN A NON POINTS EVENT RACE.MARK WON THE POLE FOR THE RACE,BUT HE FINISHED 2nd TO MIKE SKINNER.THIS HIGHLY DETAILED CAR WAS BUILT TO LOOK LIKE MARKS CAR DID AT THE START OF THE RACE.

Mods

THIS CAR WAS PRODUCED BY RACING CHAMPIONS,BUT NEVER PRODUCED WITH THIS MUCH DETAIL.THIS CAR WAS MADE WITH A REVELL COLLECTORS CLUB EDITION DIECAST THAT WAS STRIPPED TO THE BARE METAL,PRIMED,PAINTED,DECALED AND CLEAR COATED FOR DECAL PROTECTION AND AN AMAZING SHINE.I ALSO LOWERED THE CAR TO GIVE IT A BETTER STANCE.I PUT ROAD COURSE DECALS ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR AS WELL.THIS CAR LOOKS AS IT DID ON RACE DAY,BEFORE THE BATTLE MARKS OF COURSE.
