Look like the wifey will be heading out of town to visit her mom for mother's day for a week so I'll be doing as much racing as I can fit in. Gonna try and knock these cars out before she leaves so I can race this series!

Here is the #91 Shafer ride. Had to do the number from scratch. Nothing that was available really fit.

That looks like the 'Evernham' style number. There are sets out there.

Great job on it! ;)
It is for sure the Evernham numbers. The only place I could see that had the number set was nnracing.com but it looks like the site is down. I tried to grab the image off of google but it was just too low of quality. Is nnracing down for everyone else?

Sam Butler's #81. Since this series has so many duplicate numbers and NR2003 doesn't let us use letters after the number, Sam will be #081 in the .car file. Hope that makes sense.

#4 Honeycutt. He ran a reverse color scheme the first race or 2 but now the car looks like this. I skipped the black stripe on the top of the orange because I couldn't get it to line up all the way from front to back. I'll have to give myself a pass on that.

This one looks great, but just a little suggestion.... I think you may have muted the day-glo orange a little too much. I know you have said that you feel painters can sometimes make their car colors too vivid and that you think they should be more muted, but in this case I might suggest you bring that day-glo orange up a little more to match the picture of the real car you posted. Just my 2 cents worth. It's totally your call of course. It could also just be the render that is muting it. I don't know. Otherwise, it looks great like all of the others you've done. ;)

I was actually working on that when you posted this. I've updated it above. I want to see how this one looks in the sim to see if I'll go any further. I'm working on triple monitors and the 2 outside 27" screens (same brand) have a different color than my center 32" screen. I have a Huey monitor calibrator that I need to run on all 3 screens to get them all dialed in. Just haven't taken the time.

Wanted to say thank you for the feedback too. I don't always get much critique from anyone and I appreciate it.

Also for those senior contributing members on here, if you want to borrow the Huey for your screens I'd be happy to send it out to you if you pay the shipping. Maybe we can do a round robin type deal if a few people want to use it without having to dish out the $60-70 for it. Just a thought.

Craig Moore #1. I couldn't find the big yellow logo on he hood anywhere so I used one of his other sponsors that is pretty active on their FB and has been a sponsor for quite a few years. Couldn't find a few other of his small sponsors either unfortunately. Craig isn't in the top 24 in points but he's going to try and run the full season so I figured I would create his car.

One more car to do and then I'll be busting out the "custom generic" pit crews for each car.

Final entry is going to be Bubba Pollard. He's not going to run the full season for the CARS Tour but I like the idea of racing against him. Also I know the roof numbers of a couple of these cars are small like Bubba's but I just went with the traditional style. Hope that's ok with everyone.

Love the fact that you're including Bubba!... and the traditional roof number, too. When it comes to Late Model Super Stars, you have to include Bubba Pollard in that conversation along with perhaps Steven Nasse, Peyton Sellers and a few others. Really looking forward to racing against the drivers in this set.

I dug deeper and found out that the yellow logo isn't necessary175918084_4316691128375014_4243836292760515021_n.jpg
