about us

In 1994, before NASCAR Racing by Papyrus even existed, there were a few simulation racers who owned IndyCar Racing, Papyrus' "other" simulator, who wanted to see some Winston Cup cars in their game. So a fella by the name of Tony Johns decided to oblige, painting a set of IndyCars in the livery of NASCAR's top teams. The set, ICRNAS, spread rapidly around the Internet and gained a loyal following. Some of those users banded together with Johns to form the ICRNAS racing series, using NASCAR-style points systems and the IndyCar game.

When NASCAR Racing was released, Johns received numerous requests to produce a Winston Cup set for the simulator. At the time, he was busily attending to the Internet Winner's Circle Championship (IWCC), ICRNAS' extension into the NASCAR Racing game. The series used a 1994 car set designed by Johns as its official opponents, so he decided to post it under the name of IWCCCARS. To make a long story short, the popularity of the set and demand for other car sets quickly outgrew (and eventually outlived) the IWCC series, and soon a separate Web site was spawned to support it.

After two years of shepherding IWCCCARS from a one-man operation to a full fledged "Project" with nine designers from around the world, Tony moved on to a job with Sierra Online/Papyrus. In that space of time, the Project produced twenty-two car sets for NASCAR Racing 1 alone. IWCCCARS' traditions of prompt troubleshooting service and timely updates have also won many new "converts" to the Project. And best of all, everything IWCCCARS has produced is free of charge and will remain that way.

We all owe Tony a great debt of gratitude for his vision and his commitment to quality. We will continue to strive for perfection in the cars we create, maintaining the legacy that is IWCCCARS. Take some time and read about the people now responsible for IWCCCARS. And, as always, thank you for your patronage and support!
