From the beginning, there's always been a need for speed. From the first cars to challenge each other, it was a man to man battle, but often times, a spectator event. Even if the crowd's were small, just a few characters hanging around to see who would win, crash, or break down, it had it's appeal.

NASCAR came about as a way to bring this new kind of event to the public. There were plenty of drivers who were willing to build and risk their cars. Though they were primarily stock at the beginning.

They raced on A1A and the Daytona Beach (which had been used for racing from Ormond Beach since the early 1900s). More orless in an oval. But people loved to watch it.

It soon became so popular that the Daytona Speedway was built, and the rest as they say is history. It's become one of the most watched spectator series there is for motorsports.

Model companies wasted no time in coming out with NASCAR related model kits. Fromt the 1960s on, there have been hundreds of versions of car kits to make stock cars. Many of the more or less the same kit, with different decals, but the kits are still released today.

Reissued kits, from AMT, MPC, and Lindberg fuel the car builders who like the older cars. The cars used on circle tracks, dirt tracks, and late Saturday night specials.

New kits are still released, recently by Revell. So NASCAR kits aren't going away anytime soon. It's true the market for those kits has shrunk over the years, but there are still model car builders who like to build them.

From what I've seen, the 1960's and 1970's race cars are the most popular kits of their kind.

Moebius, with it's Chrysler 300s and their Hudson Hornets, has brought two cars that NASCAR modelers have wanted for decades. Several versions are available of each, and the its are well made with modern tooling.

NASCAR race car models. Also included are dirt track and Saturday night specials race cars.
