Johnny Lightning

A friend of mine has been wanting me to make him a list of Johnny Lightning produced NASCAR cars...so instead of making a simple text list, I'm making a photo list!

Cars on the wrong body

It's not that hard, yet they make lots of errors. Some are the result of the die cast company just not caring.

Unknown

I have no clue what series these cars are from. For the two Visa Pontiacs, I don't even know what season or which driver.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thanks!

Cup

NASCAR's showcase series. Launched in 1949 as Stricktly Stock, it was renamed Grand National for 1950. In 1971, Winston came on board and the Winston Cup was born. Government regulations forced Winston out after 2003, and the series was known as Nextel Cup from 2004-07, and has been known, after a corporate takeover, as Sprint Cup since 2008. I tend to just call it Cup. By far my favorite series, and the most popular series in scale.

Busch Grand National

Formerly Sportsman, currently known as Nationwide, this is NASCAR's #2 division. In recent years it has been ruined by being filled with Cup drivers, and I no longer watch any races with the exception of the Restrictor Plate and Road Course races.

Trucks

The Truck series is one of the best in NASCAR. Launched in 1995 (after some 1994 preview races) as the Supertruck Series presented by Craftsman, it became the Craftsman Trucks from 1996-2008, and has since been known as the Camping World Truck series.
When the Truck series started, it was well represented in scale, but for some reason, after 1998 the Trucks were almost exclusively available on a promo basis, and hardly any of them were made, unfortunatly.

Busch North

The Busch North series was created in 1987, a restructuring of other divisions. In 2006, it was renamed Busch East, and then after Busch left the title sponsorship, it became Camping World East, then K&N Pro Series East. All throughout this time, I continue to call it Busch North.

Winston West

Winston West is the third oldest active division of NASCAR, yet surprisingly, it is very, very rare to see in scale. That is even stranger when you consider that up into the mid 1990s several races would be run as combination races with Winston Cup. The series has had a lot of names and while I like to recap that, it'd just be easier to link to the page on Racing Reference: http://racing-reference.info/ww.htm

Convertible Division

NASCAR's Convertible division lasted only from 1956-1959, and held on at Darlington through 1963. Some races were combined GN and Convertible, including the first Daytona 500. In fact, that is why there are two qualifying races to this day- originally, one race was for convertibles, one for hardtops!

Goody's Dash

The NASCAR Goody's Dash series was the Subcompact division of NASCAR. It began in the 80s, went to around 2000 or 2001, I believe. I only saw a few races, they were not televised much.

Technically, these are all on the wrong body. I don't know what kind of cars Ford or Chevrolet used, but the cars that are Grand Prixs here, were actually Grand Ams in real life. However, the tooling for them don't exist, for any brands, so Cup tooling was used. Close enough!

Other NASCAR related series

Includes: 1946 season Bill France car, predates NASCAR.
1991 NASCAR Legends race, held in conjunction with The Winston.
1990s Sportsman Series
Australian series. I believe it was a NASCAR division, but if I'm wrong, please do correct me.

Test Cars

Occasionally, test cars will be made in scale. Some of them are realistic, some are simply fantasies made up by the diecast companies. In many cases, I just don't know which is which. So here they all are. Cup and Busch combined, no test trucks have ever been issued.

Late Models

I know some of these are from NASCAR's late model division...but some may not be. I really don't know.

2000 Ted Musgrave Set

These are nearly impossible to find. After searching for 5 years I was able to add one to my collection.

These were only available to BellSouth employees in 2000.
