    Well, well, well, it seems as if I'm at it again already! I mentioned back in the Kraft Heinz thread that the CVS series was 2 above the Kraft Heinz Pro Series. This is the middle man.

    Kubota, manufacturer of tractor and heavy equipment has stepped up to sponsor the series for the year.

    The trucks included will be the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, and Toyota Tundra. All trucks in this series are sponsored and filled with young and experienced talent trying to prove themselves to move up to the next tier series.

    Over 30 trucks are planned for this series, and the first two are ready for reveal.

    First up will be a veteran out of Austin, Texas. Driving the #1 Mattress Firm F-150, Hank Jenkins has been around the sport for years, and he is looking to shine in the newly sponsored series in 2016.

    Next up will be a third generation driver from Providence, Rhode Island. Barry Bridgewater, sponsored by Cricket Wireless, is excited to start his first year in the Kubota Truck Series.

    Thanks for checking, and stay tuned for more!

    Glad you enjoy them! Thanks for the comments!

    The next three trucks are ready to be revealed.

    Up next, we have a rookie from St. Louis, MO. Nate Young has brought along sponsor Bed Bath and Beyond to their first Nascar venture. Driving a Ford, he looks for a strong year to attempt to move up to the next series.

    4BedBathandBeyond1.png

    Next driver is Stephen Carelli. Hailing all the way from Vancouver, Canada he is looking to just score a couple top tens this year, as he is a very new face to the Nascar scene. Sponsored by South Korean tire company Kumho Tire, him and his Toyota team are very excited to start the year!

    7KumhoTire1.png

    Next up is a team from Boston, MA. The #9 Chevy of Brendan Rockwell sponsored by Werner Ladder is looking for a few wins this year. Werner jumped at the opportunity to sponsor this kid in hopes he can bring them the championship.

    The next batch of trucks are currently being unveiled!

    Driving the #12 Caterpillar Chevy in 2016, Camille Wagner. A college sophomore from Louisville, KY. This girl has full sponsorship from Caterpillar and is looking forward to a great season!

    12Caterpillar1.png

    Next up is Vince Purino. Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, this 22 year old has sponsorship from Libman, as well as Menards. Driving a Ford, this team looks for a solid points finish this year.

    14Libman1.png

    Driving the #17 Lenox Industrial Tools Toyota is Tampa, FL native Iggy Butler. Iggy has raced in karts since he was 9 years old, and he is ready to move up to Nascar.

    17LenoxIndustrialTools1.png

    Behind the wheel of our next truck, from Houston, TX, we have Cole Bradford. Bringing local sponsorship to the Nascar Kubota Truck Series in the way of SafeWay Driving Centers. A younger team, but they are hoping to get some strong runs here soon!

    19SafeWayDrivingCenters1.png
    Up next is Adam Nichols. Driving out of Bakersfield, CA. He brings sponsorship from Equipment Express, as well as Disabled American Veterans. This team is expected to run very well here, so he is very excited to start the season!

    Behind the wheel of the #22 Chevy, we have the "Italian Jeff Gordon". He is called that due to his stellar resume up to this point. Sponsored by Italian rail company Trenitalia, Angelo Constanzo is expected to blow up in Nascar. He is getting his first taste in the scene this year, and the buzz around him is electric.

    22Trenitalia1.png

    Next up is a Nascar veteran who has been around the sport nearly ten years now. Tommy Carson will be piloting the Jack Daniel's Silverado in 2016. Often called a dark horse pick, he has been known to come out of nowhere right when he needs to. Look for him to battle for the championship this year!

    25JackDaniels1.png

    Out of Frederick, MD we have a family owned race team. Ben Thompson and his family, along with sponsor Thompson Gas, look to challenge for top 10s this year and even some top 5s. Just starting out, Ben has been excellent in series testing, so the hopes are high for this team.

    27ThompsonGas1.png

    Driving the #32 Towlift Chevy out of Columbus, OH, we have another fast female in the series. Sasha Neville is fully sponsored and ready to go in 2016. Her team, who also fields a couple of cars in the CVS Series, is very prepared and eager to get this season underway.

    32TowLift1.png

    Here we have another young gun just starting out. Carl Maxwell, and his sponsor DC Solar have only been acquainted for a few months, so this team is still struggling to find speed in testing. But persistence is always key in this sport, and they should have things figured out soon!

    This is still very much alive, just so you all know! :)

    Here we have the next truck in the series. The #39 Klondike Bars Toyota of June Reynolds is ready for her shot in 2016! This family owned team from Canada acquired sponsorship from Klondike a few months back, and she has proven she can wheel a racecar. Champion of her local late model series, she's ready to show everyone who's boss.

    39Klondike1.png


    Next up we have another large, well funded team. From Columbia, SC, Kitt Sandrell has sponsorship through Dairy Queen. His father, Nathan, was a long time dairy farmer and ended up selling his farm to a company who provides dairy products to Dairy Queen. With full sponsorship for the 2016 season, look for Kitt to be competitive all year long.

    43DairyQueen1.png


    Matt Oswald is a rookie out of Austin, TX. He's been burning it up in the local dirt track scene, and he's bringing his longtime partner; Focus Brands. This company owns chains like Auntie Anne's, Cinnabon, Carvel, Moe's, and more. He's never raced on asphalt before this series, so the future is a little questionable, but his sponsor is loyal and willing to stick with him through the year. Rumor has it that some of the other chains may make an appearance as primary sponsors throughout the year!

    44AuntieAnnes1.png


    Here we have a very interesting story and addition to the 2016 Nascar Kubota Truck Series. Former marathon runner Jennifer Penn has decided to hang up her running shoes, and put on a set of wheels. She says she has been a Nascar fan her whole life, and that she just wants to be going a little bit faster. Six years back, she signed a sponsorship deal with Altra Footwear. They have decided to sponsor her and follow her through the series, in an attempt to show support to Jennifer and spread their brand name. Her talent is unknown, but from a few test sessions earlier this year, she has shown a lot of speed. Watch out for this rookie in 2016!

    49AltraRunningShoes1.png


    Now we head to a more experienced driver, in Harley Franklin. About three years back, Franklin was racing late models in his hometown of Carson, NV when he got a phone call. Wonder Bread, had been paying attention to him and his consistent and clean ways. They thought that he would fit their image perfectly for a driver making his way through the ranks. They've sponsored him since then and they are jumping on the opportunity to put him in a truck for this season. Very consistent, he is often among the front runners. He may not bring home a lot of trophies, but he can bring it home in one piece.

    51WonderBread1.png

    Stay tuned for some more, probably tonight!

    Next up we have another young gun, out of Charlotte, NC. Moe Wykstrom, driving the #55 Toys R Us Chevy this season looks to have a strong year. Toys R Us is very excited to be back sponsoring in Nascar, and they have high hopes for the young driver!

    55ToysRUs1.png

    Wendell Kitter, experienced dirt tracker out of Oklahoma looks to get his Nascar career started off strong. With his sponsor Meijer, they are both looking for good runs. He has been fast in testing this year and the expectations are high for this team.

    58Meijer1.png

    Next up we have another experienced driver, this one out of Baltimore, MD. Randy Mosley has won in everything he's ever sat in, and it got the attention of his long time sponsor Kennametal. With full sponsorship and a highly trained crew, the sky is the limit for this team.

    61Kennametal1.png

    The further we go into the roster, the more depth this field shows. Nearly every team has an opportunity to go out and win each week. This team is definitely no exception. Rich Allison, piloting the #66 Knight Transportation Chevy out of Chicago, IL is looking for a strong season. This powerhouse team was one of the most talked about in the garage this spring, putting down scorching fast lap times every time he went out. Look for this team to pull into victory lane a few times in 2016.

    66KnightTransportation1.png

    Next up is a newer team from Pittsburgh, PA. Although the team is new, and driver George Tyler doesn't have a lot of experience in stock cars, his sponsor Craftsman Tools knows a thing or two about how this whole process works. After they heard a new truck series was starting up, they started scouting all over the East coast. Eventually they landed with George. A very patient driver, but is able to pull off the victory on every dirt track he sets foot on. Lots of noise is expected to come out of this team this year.

    Great work as usual Dale. I like how you put "Sir" Rich Allison, since it's Knight Transportation.

    I don't know if this is the render or not, but you still have the Camping World banner on all of the trucks. Seems a bit out of place.

    @TruckSeries great pick up on that! I wondered if anyone would see any of the small details like that.

    There wasn't a spot on the template, so I just left it the way it was. I noticed about halfway through and was just like...ehh.

    The roster is nearly fully unveiled! Our next driver is one of our youngest. At 17 years old, Nick Dennison from Columbia, MD is very excited to start the year. With personal sponsor, EverFi following him since 2013, they are also ready to get more people aware of their name. Nick has been racing karts and legends for a few years now, and has shown a lot of speed in his youth.

    75EverFi1.png

    Following him is one of the most promising rookies in recent history. Alex Hunt, family of the J.B Hunt trucking company is fully sponsored along with a very experienced crew on the box. Alex has been tearing it up in the Nascar Whelen Series, and is ready to take on the big leagues.

    80JBHunt1.png

    Next up is another from Canada. Bailey King, experienced short track racer is excited to get some larger tracks under her belt. With sponsorship from Castle Building Centres, she's hoping to make them, and her brother proud, as he has been there for everything since they moved to Canada and started living on their own in 1999.

    84CastleBuilding1.png

    Next up, from Houston, TX. Wade O'Reilly has been racing since he could walk. Whether it be bikes, go karts, boats, and everything in between. He as always been fast, especially since he entered the ARCA Racing Series in 2014. Racking up 4 wins and 18 top 10s in that span, he has attracted BNSF Railway as sponsor, following him to the new Kubota Truck Series. Expect O'Reilly to be a strong competitor in 2016.

    The last 4 full time trucks are ready to be unveiled today!

    David Pollock, son of William, hailing from Chicago, IL is ready to battle for the championship this season. His father William Pollock has just retired from racing, and now his 18 year old son is ready to take on the legacy with Jegs sponsoring him full time in 2016. Look for this kid to battle with the best, and even beat them on occasion.

    88Jegs1.png

    Next up we have Joe Albert. From New Orleans, he brings his long time sponsor of Popeye's Chicken, also from Louisiana. Joe has had success racing in the lower series, as well as ARCA, and he and his sponsor are ready to step up in 2016.

    91Popeyes1.png

    Up next we have Dale Connolly. Driving out of San Diego, CA, he has been very fast in his local late model series. That attracted the attention of his sponsor, California Pizza Kitchen. As they moved him up to the Whelen series, he truly shined on the short tracks. Hoping to get some more experience here on the larger tracks, he is very prepared to start the season.

    93CaliforniaPizzaKitchen1.png

    Lastly, from Lexington, KY. We have Sage Rodriguez, along with his personal sponsor of Big Ass Fans. Back in 2012, when they were just starting out, they started sponsoring Sage in the ARCA Series. Ever since then they have grown together and have a tightly knit relationship. Ready for the Nascar Kubota Truck Series starting in 2016, they are hunting for a championship here, and they have all the means to do so.

    99BigAssFans1.png

    There we are! The 33 trucks that will be racing for the title in 2016. A very deep, competitive field will make the hunt very difficult, but each of these drivers have the skill to achieve greatness.

    Release of this set is very soon, so stay tuned! Thanks! :)

    Thank you!

    Well, folks. The day is here. All 33 trucks are rated according to their descriptions, and if I may say so myself, are very fun to race against. Hopefully y'all can have some fun with these as well, as they were very fun to make. Thanks for all the support and to all the people who provided resources for this set.
