Finished 2018 Sheldon Creed ARCA Toyota

Recommended Posts

It took 161 hours to complete this project. If you followed the wip, you would have seen my attempt at changing a 1/24 scale Revell Jimmie Johnson snap kit Chevy into a 2018 ARCA Toyota, which I think is really a 2016 Camry. It's certainly nothing like the current Nascar Toyota. It was an interesting build but I won't be doing anymore of these.

BROOKLYN, Mich. – Sheldon Creed finally earned his first ARCA Racing Series victory during Friday’s 100-lap ZOMONGO 200 at Michigan Int’l Speedway.

Creed, in the No. 28 United Rentals Toyota, dominated the final two-thirds of the race. He took the lead on lap 37 of the 100-lap show and never let it go. In the end, the Alpine, Calif., driver pulled away from runner-up finisher Riley Herbst to win the 37th running of the ZOMONGO 200 Friday afternoon at Michigan Int’l Speedway.

This is a photo of Sheldon Creed winning the ZOMONGO 200

Thanks, Bruce and thanks Ed for posting the winning picture for Sheldon. I enjoyed watching the race, but thought how is this one going to be taken away from him like the ones at Dytona and Talladega were, with the stupid caution flag rule, ARCA has, at the end of a race. Hopefully this is the first of many wins for the Showstopper.

Very nice indeed Mark,  I really enjoy seeing builds of the lesser known drivers.

Here is a pretty cool You tube video starring Sheldon's car. I don't know if its his voice in the commercial but the Chevelle and his race car are pretty awesome.

Thanks, Ed. Yes, if they keep putting good cars under him, he will keep winning. He's definitely something special.
