Whitman manufactured a number of sports-themed games during it's lengthy tenure as one of the top board game producers in the USA.   One of the mainstays of the line were a series of racing games: Kentucky Derby, Regatta and Stock Car Racing.  These were intended for a younger audience so game action was driven by a very simple spin the number and move the token mechanism.   All 3 feature nice period artwork.  The artwork for the Kentucky Derby game was changed a number of times as were the names of the horses running.  I believe the other 2 kept the same artwork throughout their production.

whitman stock car race game parts

The game parts are in NEAR MINT condition.  The game includes all the parts that originally came with this edition of the game.  It does not appear that the game was played with much, if at all.  Overall I would grade the game parts 9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

whitman stock car race game BOX

The game box is in EXCELLENT condition.  There is a small tear in the cover art near the bottom left corner, 1 split corner and a few light corner and edge creases.   Nice color.  White box bottom is very clean  I would grade it a 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

MINT (10):
 I will only give this grade to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):  Shows virtually no use.  Seldom if ever played.   Perhaps some very light handling creases to the instructions or other minor flaws with the game parts.  Boxes will have only the slightest hint of shelf wear.   EXCELLENT (7-8): The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.  Game parts might have some light handling creases or other signs of careful use.  Board might have just a hint of color loss or dented corners.  Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or perhaps some minor dishing or a very light stain.   VERY GOOD (5-6):  The game was not especially well cared for but it still has faired pretty well.  Game parts will show obvious use but nothing will be torn, badly stained or have any serious damage.  Box may have some rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners, minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape.  No major structural damage and artwork will still be generally attractive.  GOOD (3-4): Obviously no care was taken with the game but it is still playable as is.  Game parts show considerable use but the game is complete with all parts in usable condition.  Box may have staining, writing, split corners, dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still usable.   POOR (1-2):  Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.  Game will be missing parts (these will be noted).  Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
