While nearly six years old by 1953, NASCAR was still relatively in its infancy. The fields had begun to grow, and as time and experience began to seep into the sport's management, things became ever smoother in how they were run. By the end of the 1953 season, Herb Thomas would be crowned the champion, followed by Lee Petty in 1954.
This set was the result of a large-scale collaboration between Jebrown and myself, initially hoping to paint only the 1954 season. Due to the lack of resources that would allow us to do so, we decided to expand the set to cover both 1953 and 1954. This part features around 57 cars, of a set that has over 100 cars in total.
