Earlier this year, the revelation of a new stock car racing series named ‘Superstar Racing Experience’ or SRX, for short, was made. The foundation of the planning of the competition includes big names such as NASCAR legend Tony Stewart and former team owner Ray Evernham.

The announcement regarding the series came early this year, with CBS Sports also highlighting a partnership to broadcast the six-races event. Fans have since shown inquisitiveness and wanted to know more about the competition and importantly, the look of the cars.

SRX’s official Twitter handle has now put up a post that consists of a few pictures to enthuse racing supporters around the world. What is interesting to note is the way these cars will potentially be designed for the competition.

The series’ founders include the likes of Tony Stewart and Ray Evernham

In an earlier tweet, SRX had teased fans with a post that was captioned, “Who wants to see what our final SRX cars will look like? 1,000 retweets and we will post the latest images of @RayEvernham’s car that is in production!”

And following that, SRX posted a few images that included a model in an assembly stage. That post’s caption read, “Coming to a track near you!”

One very key difference is that the cars will draw no similarities with NASCAR as such. The idea is to have twelve drivers racing in identical stock cars with possible late model chassis fitted in.

Evernham had earlier stated, “We’ve set this up to bring the focus back to the drivers and their ability to compete head to head as opposed to the car deciding who wins. That’s going to create a unique dynamic for fans at the track and everywhere else.”

Racing fans have pointed comparisons to the erstwhile International Race of Champions. But this time, the emphasis is on racing in the short tracks across various locations in the United States.
