Not 100% clear on what your asking, but if your asking did anyone make slot cars as NASTRUCKS....the answer is yes, Tyco (Now Mattel) made several five or six if I remember correctly. Nothing new for several years though and not exactly scale even though they did make a Chevy and a Ford.

Life Like also had a set with two Chevy PUs that were done up in a NASCAR livery. I recall one was Quaker State sponsored. Can't recall who sponsored the other one. :rolleyes: What's new. CRS is alive and well. :) rr

Actually, these were new molds. The Chevy looked great, they never made a Ford or a Dodge (my Dodge is a re-sculpted Chevy). Later they made a street Ford F350 and slapped a number on the side trying to pass it off as a Nastruck.

I sure agree Doba.

Here's a brief history of the evolution of Nastruck Chevys.
1995-99



Trucks gone bad.





And the Fords........These are Ford trucks?




I can't stand the Corvette front ends they let everyone go to.
At least, this year they made em stand the front ends up more straight,
but they(Nascar) also let them shrink the grills to 3/4 scale.
Since they started taking them to larger tracks, the manufacturers have been whining about better aerodynamics. Hey, they're trucks!!!

Here's a snip form their first Daytona (no restricter plates)
