Anyone who has followed Denny Hamlin's career knows exactly how much of a threat he is at Darlington. Hamlin's prolific career holds many highlights, and some great wins. There aren't many places where Denny has won more often, and there's nowhere that Hamlin has a better average finish (7.5).
Since 2015 Nascar has created a tradition of making the Southern 500 the annual throwback weekend. Hamlin and the Joe Gibbs Racing #11 Fedex Team has never skipped an opportunity to appreciate a part of Nascar history by always carrying a throwback scheme.
In this review, we're back to Lionel's Authentics 2020, Wave 8 to review Denny Hamlin's 2020 Fedex Southern 500 throwback. To read more...
Johnny Sauter has been active in at least one of NASCAR's three premier national touring series since 2001. He made his Nascar debut in the Xfinity series racing 5 times for RCR in the number 21 Rockwell Automation chevy with a best finish of 5th. Since then Sauter has padded his racing record with some eye watering achievements in longevity, consistency and a prized 2016 title in the Nascar truck series.
While he continues to compete week in and week out, it may be a long time before many fans and historians take the time to truly calculate the experience Sauter can boast.
Still 2020 was a down year for Sauter. He didn't claim a single victory, a first for him since 2015, and only his third winless season since 2008. 2020 also saw Thorsport Racing earn wins with all of Sauter's stablemates and so, while 2020 was a season to forget, this 1/64 tends F-150 by Lionel Racing certainly is not.

The 2020 season was a consistent one for Kurt Busch winning 1 race and completing 94% of his laps. He largely put on a repeat performance from 2019 (he also won, one race) and completed 98% of all laps. In 2019 he recorded 2 DNFs but recorded 5 DNFs in 2020. Two of those DNFs came behind the wheel of his 2020 Gearwrench Camaro.
Kurt Busch wheeled this scheme 6 times in 2020 up one race from 2019 where he carried the Gearwrench company colors for 5 races.
In Wave number 7 of 2020 Lionel Racing's Authentics line bings us a 1/64 scale copy of this great looking number 1 machine. For my complete thoughts on this car...
