    I have found alot of Errors in Billy's list for most of the Busch Series from 2000 to 2004, Now I only collected the 2000 - 2003 years because of Nesquik and Scott Riggs. I decided to take some pictures and post a list of all the Busch Series Diecast That I have been able to find this year. I have posted which ones are Promotional Items, and Who made them. I have been keeping notes on which ones were made from different Companies: Action/Winners Circle/Team Caliber/Hot Wheels. Most will be updated if other versions are found, and help of other collectors of course. These list are subject to change. I will also note which ones are really hard to find and near darn impossible to find these days. (HTF = Hard To Find / VHTF = Very Hard To Find.) I will post back stories on certain Diecast as time permits.

    #1 Jamie McMurray - Yellow / Racing Champions / HTF

    #4 Mike Wallace - Geico Pontiac / Racing Champions / Promo / VHTF

    Since you put in the #10 Test car from the HW Wrenchin and Racin Set, they also make a #25 Marines one. I never saw many. As a Hamilton Sr./Jr. fan, I remember seeing it, but the package was beat, so I passed figuring I'd find another. Never got back to it, but that one comes to mind.

    I'm gonna have to do some research on that one. the link here only shows 10 sets for 2003, and reading the last picture mentions no Marines, but does mention a #55 pack with Bobby Hamilton Sr. Hot Wheels Racing NASCAR (10) Acrylic 2-packs Wrenchin' & Racin' Limited Edition | eBay Did they make this set in 2002 also?

    Well, yea, these were done for 2003. I really loved these sets personally. As I'm trying to downsize, I'm trying to decide if I want to keep them. The test cars made over the years rarely resemble what was actually used. Anyways, back to the point... I only remember seeing it 1 time. I don't think I saved a picture. So let's put an * next to that 1 for now.

    I'm also pretty sure that Hot Wheels did the 9/11 scheme for Hamilton Jr. as well. I'm sorry for being so vague. I have thousands of pieces. I only inventoried like a 3rd of my collection so far and I already have over like 3,000 items. Over the next year I'll be working on things, so if I see it along my journey, I'll let you know. I swear there was an Iwo Jima scheme too, but maybe I'm over thinking it at this point.

    Do you know how many sets were actually made? Also since you are downsizing, If you happen to have that 2000 #8 Kleenex car. I would like to have it.

    No idea how many sets were made. I'll be honest, I'm just getting back in to the knowledge of things so that's why my memory is a little foggy. I've kind of been out of it for a few years. I have a 2 and 4 year old and helped prepped the land for the house we moved in to this time last year. I had a lot of my stuff scattered. I have a ton of stuff that I am just trying to inventory. I got through about a 1/3 of it so far. I need to start trying to sell some of the stuff I know I can give a new home to make room to move in the basement as this point.

    I'm not sure what #8 Kleenex car you mean. Did I mention one somewhere?

    I think this is a nice update to Billy's lists. I have been pleasantly surprised by home many Busch cars were made back then, especially from 2000 and earlier. Almost every full-time team was made in one scale or another.

    The most teams I counted for was in 2002. 2000 may have been close. 2001 had 18 #98 cars, 2003 had 4 #7 Kleenex cars and 8 #8 JRM cars.
