    1982 NASCAR Budweiser Late Model Sportsman Series carset.


    Carset is in honor of the late Sam Ard (February 14, 1939 – April 2, 2017)

    The series was called the Budweiser Late Model Sportsman Series in 1982 and 1983, the NASCAR Busch Grand National Series from 1984 through 2003, the NASCAR Busch Series from 2004 through 2007, the NASCAR Nationwide Series from 2008 through 2014, and is now called the NASCAR Xfinity Series today.

    In 1982 there were only 8 drivers that made all 29 races, another 16 drivers raced 10-18 races, and 155 drivers that raced less than 10 races. Jack Ingram battled with Sam Ard and ended up the '82 champion with 7 wins and a 47 point lead over Ard (difference probably being Ard's 5 DNFs to Ingram's 4). Ard would go on to win 2 championships of his own in '83 and '84 with Ingram finishing 2nd in both years.
    Carset consists of 62 cars total, 52 paints, 8 alternatives, and 2 player cars to choose from if you haven't painted yourself a car yet and 1 roster.
    Set is to be used with V8Mod's Classic Late Models mod available at Smiffsden

      thanks Ray, glad to see you are still around, bet neither one of us thought when I said "I'm taking a break from the sim scene" that it would turn out to be 14-15 years lol

    Awesome set; Thanks a bunch; would also like to see somebody do the 1983 thru 1987 carsets for this mod; the bodies here are more accurate than on the Aero88 mod (nothing against that mod)

      Thank you, and you're welcome. An '83 set is definitely in the works, DaleJrFan95 is also working on a late '80s set. Once the '83 set is completed and we see what years DaleJrFan95's set covers we'll see about the rest of the years you mentioned. Right now we have holes in the national series '83, '85, '86, '89, '90, '92, '93 and '96 that I'd like to see finished

    What a great car set! The detailing on these cars is outstanding. Very few cars have been painted for this mod, so it's great so see someone give it some love and with such a fine collection of historical cars from 1982. Kudos to ThatGuy for sharing this with all of us! If you're a fan of the "Golden Years" of racing... this set is a must have!!!
