NASCAR SERIES 5 LINEUP ANNOUNCED
Newest ActionMcFarlane Figure Line Coming Soon
Friday, January 07, 2005
ActionMcFarlane opens up the garage and rolls out its NASCAR Series 5 lineup, featuring five of today's top drivers, one NHRA living legend and one commemorative figure for a racing star who left us all too soon. Here's our field of seven:
MARTIN TRUEX JR. The son of a talented driver has been adopted by racing's first family -- competing in the 2004 Busch Series for Teresa and Dale Earnhardt Jr's Chance 2 Racing team, while also getting two Nextel Cup starts under his belt.
DAVEY ALLISON. The #28 Havoline car saw 19 checkered flags in its eight-year career with Davey Allison behind the wheel. Part of the famed "Alabama Gang," Davey thrilled fans with his one-two finish behind his father, Bobby, in the 1988 Daytona 500, before winning NASCAR's biggest race outright in 1992. Davey Allison was taken from us in 1993 following a helicopter crash at Talladega Superspeedway, but his memory lives on -- including a spot in the International Motorsports Hall of Fame.
JOHN FORCE. Funny car legend John Force won his 13th NHRA POWERade championship in 2004, while increasing his career victory total to a head-shaking 114. There seems to be no end in sight for the sheer dominance of Force's #1 Castrol GTX Start Up Ford Mustang.
DALE JARRETT. The UPS car delivered a season-opening victory at the Bud Shootout in 2004, the 20th season in Jarrett's stellar career. The 88 car amassed five other "Top 5" finishes and earned the 15th slot in the final driver standings.
KEVIN HARVICK. The 2001 NASCAR Rookie of the Year just keeps getting better and better. Harvick finished 14th in the 2005 Nextel Cup standings, while turning in five "Top 5" and 14 "Top 10" finishes.
CASEY MEARS. After training in the Craftsman Truck and Busch Series, Mears made his presence felt during his second full season in the Nextel Cup Series. The 41 car won pole positions at the Pennsylvania 500 and Brickyard 400 in consecutive weeks and turned in a season-high fourth-place finish at the Sirius at the Glen race in August.
TONY STEWART. The 2002 NASCAR champion continued to tear up the track in 2005, winning the Tropicana 400 and the Sirius at the Glen races to help qualify for the first "Chase for the Cup" and finish the season in sixth place overall.
