    Looks to me like they will transform into the wreckers, but probably start out as regular Nascars.

    Seeing Topspin side-by-side with the actual Lowe's Impala is quite awesome and at the same time funny to me. Lets hope Jimmie Johnson doesn't get into the wrong car on race day. :) 

    Also, the Transformers NASCARs are now on slicks instead of normal/wet radials that were used during filming.

    He's there... bit far to the right. We didn't even get an official image of Leadfoot. Wonder why all this secrecy... it's just a beerbelly. :D

    It would have been super cool if they actually were allowed to run a couple of laps shooting their guns!

    These pictures were most likely taken by someone at Hendrick Motorsports, they field the 48 & 88, the 42 is an Earnhardt-Ganassi owned car. Hopefully we'll get some better shots of Leadfoot soon.

    I've got a couple of 1/24 scale stock cars and lots of spare street car, NASCAR, and semi-truck parts laying around, I might try to build my own Wrecker . . .

    man, they really RUINED the number 88 figure.

    it is definitely the coolest looking nascar, yet the figure is nothing like it.

    I've been trying to figure out why the Top Spin figure has so many weapons in addition to the MechTech gun but the Roadbuster figure doesn't. It just seems odd, especially since more merchandise is sold for Dale Jr. than any other NASCAR driver.

    The only times I watch these races are when there's a Transformer movie car involved.. so guess I'm watching the start of the race at least :D 

    I liked those Optimus and Megatron cars they had for ROTF, need those guys again too! :thumb

    maybe they couldn't deal with the whole National Guard thing?
    the toy has amp logos. I think they could only use the amp logo if the hole thing was without guns

    Cool that we get to see some good pictures.
    If real NASCAR cars had weapons like that, I would actually watch.
