NASCAR New Era Caps

Happy Daytona Day Weekend folks!

Had this idea a few nights ago. Monster took over the sponsorship for the Nascar Cup series, which is a great move to try and attract younger fans. You know what else would do? Make some sick caps.

I believe 2 years ago, or maybe last year, Fanatics and Nascar teamed up for basically a streamlined shopping center, replacing merch haulers. Fanatics is a great website with tons of gear for all sorts of sports.

Moving on, if you watch practice or anything where drivers are more relaxed, you'd see sponsor caps done by New Era, which is good because fitted caps are better made than floppier adjustable caps, and they just add to the billboards drivers are at the track. But what about fans? At the track a DOW hat would show you're an Austin Dillon fan, but away from it, you just look like you really like chemicals and plastics.

Doing research after the fact, there are some hats like the one below. I thought it was inevitable with the Monster sponsorship, but you don't see too many hats without crazy designs or the numbers being the main focus of the hat.

So what I did was make some caps designed a lot like baseball caps. Few base colors, a New Era logo, a league logo on the back, and of course sponsors because who am I kidding of course there would be.

Just because I know I didn't do everyone, I'm releasing the file for the hats above and my number font file I created. Feel free to make some of your own!

Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge

I've had an idea for a realistic golf game, but done with putt-putt. So I made some menus based on a 20 year old joke from The Simpsons because creating a video game is out of my reach.
