Casey Atwood #27 Castrol Chevy

Recommended Posts

This is Casey Atwood’s Busch Series Castrol ride, 1999 or so. He won 2 races in this car in the Busch series for Brewco. Atwood was supposed to be the next great young driver but his career never really took off.

Its a great model from a time frame when I cared about racing so much more.

In that time frame there were so many next sure thing drivers in Busch who never made a significant splash in Cup. The converse side there were a few drivers who didn't make much of a splash in Busch but moved mountains in Cup such as Jimmy Johnson. Unfortunately it seems there were a lot more  who didn't transition well than did. I could name a handful with little thought; Chad Little, Casey Atwood, Johnny Benson, Elton Sawyer, Joe Nemechek, Jeff Green. I'm sure there's about five others that could be added to the list. Each of those could have, should have been multiple Cup winners.

Great looking model.  That is a name I have not heard of in a long time.
