One more BMW factory car, this one of Travis Gray, the team's top prospect with a bold, big name sponsor. The Colorado native is a bit of a late bloomer at 26, but looks set to be a title contender once again as he desires to move on up!

The leading veteran of the series, a former champion who couldn't quite make it in D1 but remains atop the D2 level, is Danny Vanhoose. The native of London, Ontario was seen as the man to bring Duke Motorsports to the promised land, and he still leads the team today with their three car lineup! Is it time for D2 title #2?

Saviro Cano is a driver from Saltillo in Northern Mexico, whose career is hanging on a thread. At 28 and still running near the back of D2, he's shown talent to get here but looks set to be a D2 lifer or worse. Is he about to prove haters wrong?

We're approaching the end of the main NAPARL series, with four drivers remaining. In fact, out final four drivers are all from different countries!

First, the final Canadian and perhaps the best Canadian in Division 2 is Daniel Beuregard. The native of Hamilton leads the Master Motorsport team with a big name sponsor, and looks set to be a future star if the team continues their fast rise in Division 1. Are we witnessing a sleeping giant of the NAPARL's future?

The last American comes from the midwestern heart of the U.S., Ohio. Stacy Henderson rounds out a trio of up and comers for Callahan who look set to be future stars. The 22 year old seems to be the least regarded of the three, but she knows she can be the best of them!

The final driver from Mexico and the final rookie is Nico Risendez, a 21 year old from Hemosillo. His hiring was a bit controversial, with many seeing it as an attempt at Franco's to just have another Mexican driver in their lineup, but he has shown potential at the lower levels. Is he a sleeper in the making?

And now, the final main NAPARL series driver, ending with a #12 Nissan with a coke product just as we started! Maxine Bren closes out the roster, not even being a native of the three main countries, instead being a UK native. She's crossed over to racing in the U.S. since it was more interesting to her compared to her European racing family, and has actually shown a lot of potential in stock cars despite her unique background. Could she lead the third R.A.V. car to glory this year?

And after 114 drivers, we're done with the main roster. But we're not quite done yet, we still need to release this set and then I'll have an announcement of my next project, which I'll use the same showroom for since it's in the NAPARL universe, plus some alternate paint schemes may be coming to NAPARL as well. I'll have some shots of the full set in action this evening with release info!

Thanks again for all the support in the last year!

Where can you download this set? Right now! Get it here!


I'll be doing a full retrospective I'll be posting here later, but thank you for all the support with this project! As I've touched on, this isn't the end of NAPARL, as I have some extras, but my next project won't be under the NAPARL banner, however I will continue to use this showroom for it since it's another story from the NAPARL universe. It may be a bit til I can show things off from it, but I have more plans in the meantime that you'll see here! Again, check out my twitter @jetman_999, especially since you may see some details there I won't post here.

Thank you for all the support this year!

NAPARL: A Reflection and Year In Review

I specifically targeted Division 2 to release yesterday because, as far as I can tell, today is the anniversary of the day I opened my NAPARL series planning document. In a way, my planning existed long before this. Something people likely don't know is that this is technically the second iteration of the NAPARL, the first being a failed attempt at a community carset from when I was first getting started in NR2003 at just 14 or so. As a college student now, who's been trying to become a freelance designer on the side, I knew I needed to have some sort of cohesion, and a bigger thing under my belt to show my vision and truly be distinct from the rest. A year ago, I realized doing something with the ICR mod gave me my best chance yet to make the NAPARL into what I wanted to be. This time, I took things under my own hands, and made almost all the teams, drivers, events, and lore by myself with a few exceptions to include character drivers from a couple friends of mine. This time, I really did go all out, by making a whole new timeline of all fictional drivers and teams where NASCAR either didn't exist or failed, and a new group took over the growth of stock car racing in North America and took an approach unique to that of NASCAR's. That's not to say I don't love NASCAR, because I do, even with modern changes to the sport, but things always feel best when you do it yourself, and I've never seen anything quite like what I was trying to accomplish with the new NAPARL. In fact, the next project promises to be even more unique than what the first four NAPARL series already accomplished.

I tend to have a focus on narrative in a lot of the things I do, which I've talked about more on my twitter page, and also plan to talk about more when I relaunch my Google site some time before new years. In this case I've created a literal narrative, in the sense of a whole new history of motorsports, and a personal narrative, in the sense that my painting has evolved, and I laid out my own vision of greater diversity in the racing world through my designs, much as I dream of doing in my own work. Again, this is an NR2003 showroom so I won't go on about it for too long, but it is a mission of mine that I hope to achieve through work in the racing world, even if it's at the organizational level instead of the competition level.

I also need to give a pair of special thanks. @ItsAJG deserves a lot of credit for making an ICR render scene in the first place, as well as handling renders for me until I got a new computer earlier in the year, allowing me to render much easier myself. You were a big motivation for completing the project at all as well. I also need to thank @Sonicrules831, who's been connected with me since the days of the original NAPARL, and is also the reason I do many of the paints outside NAPARL things, since he has his own NR2003 projects he doesn't share here as much.

As I touched on before, this isn't the end of the NAPARL. I plan to release some additional content eventually, including special paint schemes and number sets. For the latter, please let me know if there are any in particular you're interested in. More notably is that the next project of mine will take place in the NAPARL Universe as well, so I will continue to use this showroom. I also do have one more thing for this section of NAPARL, but since it's not an actual NR2003 thing, I'm not sure if I'll show it off here or just leave it on my Twitter for people to see, but it will coincide with my Google site relaunch in the next week or so. I'm not entirely sure when I'll be able to show things off with my new project, but I don't think it'll disappoint.

In one year, I created a brand new stock car racing world. 114 completely original drivers and cars, on new teams with new assets, and an original lore across 4 series. And this timeline still isn't done, even if it's finally the end of the first project in this universe, since I had the four series in mind from the start. There's a lot more to explore, and I encourage you all to make your own narrative, whether based on real life or completely from scratch. The carsets are available to use anyway, so you can even create your own NAPARL narrative with custom cars and schedules. Even if I have my definitive lore for my canon, nothing stops you from being creative. Only you can make something truly yours.

Thank you!
