BL’s Offline Real World Replica Rosters

2022 NASCAR Cup Series – Next Gen

For the 2022 season I decided to first create a full season roster that can be used for championships, and am now working on some race specific rosters which I will continue to add as I complete them.

Again spent some time adding driver names to the window banners of every single car in the correct font and as close to correct sizing and placement as I could to add to the immersion.

Made sure all cars have correct pit box colors and no blank pit boards.
