NASCAR Spotter Guide for I<3NY 355 at Watkins Glen

I love spotter guides! I’ve posted many releases from Andy Blackmore for various sports car racing series he does so professionally. But a few recent trips to Formula E as a volunteer made me realize just how critical spotter guides are for someone that knows little about a particular series, and it really frustrated me that nothing was available on the official web site, and only a few options existed from amateurs created for previous season’s events.

NASCAR is one of those series I know little about… there’s a ton of cars in each of the Monster Energy and Xfinity Series I’m about to embark on this weekend, and I’m happy to say that NASCAR.com has a Paint Scheme Preview – Spotter Guide posted on their web site, here it is for those interested:  https://galleries.nascar.com/gallery/1356/paint-scheme-preview-watkins-glen#/0

A few interesting observations… real NASCAR fans know the cars they follow because typically they have favorite drivers, and therefore know everything about him… I don’t. But I do enjoy checking out the cool looking paint jobs. My favorite of these series that were released yesterday is the SUNENERGY car… why? Because it reminds me a lot of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 in IMSA.

I’ll share some pix from the event soonly…
