Panini Donruss Racing Hits just as Summer Begins

June 27, 2024


Summer means the halfway point of the NASCAR season. Just about exactly — on June 20, 2024, the solstice arrived, giving the Northern Hemisphere its maximum sun exposure of the year. Three days later, Christopher Bell won at Loudon, N.H., in the 18th race of the 36-event Cup Series schedule.

Neat, huh?

Something else neat: Panini America’s 2024 Donruss Racing arrived on June Larson and Chase Elliott, plus prime contenders such as Denny Hamlin, Tyler Reddick, William Byron, defending champion Ryan Blaney and Panini America NASCAR Brand Ambassador Joey Logano.

The Rated Rookie class includes a strong batch of rising contenders. Among them: Connor Mosack, William Sawalich and Carson Kvapil.

The release includes the debut of Megas boxes, and you can look for a revamped parallel structure with more Optic fun, including the Ultra Rare and Hobby-exclusive Black Pandora’s Box.

Find three autographs or memorabilia cards per box, on average.

The Cup schedule will play out with the regular season finale on September 1st at Darlington, then it will be on to the 10-race playoff schedule with 16 contenders starting out in a bid for a spot in the Championship Four.
