    So, it goes without saying that there's a lot of NASCAR history covered in NR2003, along with ARCA, USAC, ASA, Late Models, the list goes on.

    My question is, what years are we missing presently across all of the NASCAR Series, past and present? I recognize that this might be an impossible task to nail down, but in terms of complete carsets, this is what I've noticed we are missing. I am not counting carsets that are privately available, but rather ones that are public downloads, as to avoid confusion.

    Strictly Stock/Grand National/Winston Cup/Sprint/Monster Energy
    1949
    1950
    1951
    1952
    1953
    1954
    1958
    1959
    1960
    1961
    1962
    1965
    1967
    1968
    1971
    1973
    1974
    1975
    1976
    1977
    1978

    Busch Series/Nationwide/Xfinity Series
    1985
    1986
    1989
    1990
    1992
    1993
    1996


    Truck Series:
    All years painted.

    Some non-NASCAR things I notice we are missing. These are mainly due to A.) No body styles that would match or even closely resemble, or B.) Not done yet due to interest.

    IROC (International Race of Champions)
    1975
    1976
    1977
    1978
    1979
    1980

    USAC Stock Car Series
    No known carsets

    ARCA
    Pre 1999 years are missing. There is a 80s set for the Aero88 mod.

    NASCAR Convertible Series:
    No known carsets as of present (I'm currently working on one on and off)

    NASCAR Grand American Division:
    No known carsets as of present

    NASCAR Short Track Division:
    No known carsets

    NASCAR Roadster Division:
    (This damn series is so obscure I've barely even seen one photo of it, so no carsets and likely no body would work)

    NASCAR Speedway Division:
    No appropriate body-style. These were the older Indy-Car style bodies.

    NASCAR Whelen Euro Series:
    No carset

    NASCAR Goody's Dash Series
    No carset.

    Could be wrong about this, but I don't believe there was ever a 1998 or 1999 Trucks carset released, or at least never completed.

    Don't believe there's Cup carsets for the years 1965, 1967, or 1968 either.

    There's a 1998 one, it's available over on the Bullring website. I swear there's a 99 one too somewhere, but I could be wrong.

    I could have sworn there's a 65 one out there, but again, I could be wrong. I'll add 65, 67, and 68 to the list.

    I think the Cup carset you're thinking of is the 1966 one by frow78.

    Just checked, you're right about there being a full 1998 Truck carset on Bullring. And Thunder98 painted a 1999 set. So I'm wrong on both accounts. Oops.

    Also for Busch, I don't believe the 2001 carset was ever completed. I have 120 cars that were painted, but most of them alternates. Not enough drivers for a field of 43.

    That's the one!

    Alrighty, I'll add 1999 to the Truck list. Strange that it's missing, given every other year has a set.

    I swore there was a BGN set out there for 01, but upon checking my mod folder, you're right about that. I'll definitely add that one to the list as well.

    I made a mistake, Thunder98 painted a 1999 Truck carset. I edited my post to say that after you already saw it.

    I have a 1970 ARCA and USAC Stock Car set, PM me for it.
    There is a 1993 BGN, I have it, but am not sure it I'm allowed to share it.
    I have Chris Akin's WIP 1990 BGN set, which isn't done yet.

    E4pap was the guy who was working on that 1993 set and nothing's been said in over two years, granted he served in the military some time after he started the set way back in 2009.

    I think Chris is waiting to get every car finished before releasing the 1990 set, all the cars he can get references for at least.

    Thanks for the links guys! I figured there would be a few that slipped through my attention, given I'm hardly an expert. I've taken the ones you mentioned off the list.

    I think that a mid-70s set is probably possible using GN69, but the issue is just making the models look like they're supposed to.

    I wouldn't take 1990 off the list just yet since the set hasn't been finished and/or released to the public.

    On the topic of the mid-70s though, The GN70 mod may be the better choice given the shapes of the Torino and Chevelle better suiting the era than their GN69st counterparts.

    As of right now; 1970 for GN70, 1972 for BR MCLM, and 1979 for Aero88 & BR Hobby Stocks.
