How Do I Combine My Speedway Cards? [Solved!]

There are some exciting changes coming to Speedway, which means that there are some exciting times ahead for car collectors! The good news is that the cards have finally been updated with the new licensing and design rules, which makes it much easier for collectors to keep track of all of the new releases! Let’s dive into how to combine your cards now, shall we?

The Basics

As a starting point, let’s talk about the basics: what are these cards, and how do I combine them? The Speedway racing cards are, in fact, the official playing cards of the sport. They are designed by NASCAR and were first released in 2006 (hence the 2006 design on the back). Since then, they have undergone several redesigns to keep pace with the ever-changing world of motorsport. They are officially licensed by NASCAR and feature the logos and properties of all three of its governing bodies (NASCAR, the GRAND-AM Rolex Series, and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series). This makes them an invaluable addition to any collection, as they always represent a fun and unique glimpse into the history of the sport.

Combo Packs

What’s the next exciting piece of news? Combining cards is now much easier thanks to new technology from Topps! Let’s dive into how it works: when you purchase a box of Combos (sets of six random cards), they will be shuffled and dealt into six face-down stacks, one for each player. These are then placed into an opaque plastic folder that is stored in a storage box. When it comes time to play, the box is opened and the cards are dealt into three face-down stacks, one for each player. This makes it easy for everyone to keep track of their cards, as they can simply refer to the cards in their hand instead of having to search for their own in an opaque deck. It’s a win-win!

Deck Creation

Now, let’s move on to some of the more complex steps involved in combining cards. If you’ve been collecting for a while, you may have amassed a decent number of cards. While it’s always fun to add more to your collection, keeping track of all of those cards can become cumbersome. Luckily for you, we’re here to help! In order to create a more refined collection, we will construct a deck using only the cards that you own. To do this, we will use the Topps Combination Tracker to keep track of all of the cards we need. First, we will load the tracker with all of the cards that we own, either via physical collection or from previous trades or giveaways. When we have all of the cards in the tracker, we can start to build our deck.

Building a Deck

When we opened the app, it asked us to select the type of deck we wanted to construct. Since this is a NASCAR collection, we will use the Red – a deck that is especially effective against Royalty (the Red King) and is also a great match for the new Gold Metal license plate frame from the NASCAR Museum Store. Once we made that selection, it gave us a list of all of the cards that we needed to include in our deck. We will start by including all of the following cards in our deck:

  • ARCA Dealin’
  • Aricare
  • Badge Models
  • Big Blocks
  • Blitzburgh
  • Bud Light (Beetle Chrome)
  • Candy Crowns
  • Chrome Snowflakes
  • Clown Prince
  • Corvette
  • Dash Plates
  • Daytona Beach
  • Don’t Forget the Bikes
  • Enfield
  • Ferrarri
  • Fiesta Sun
  • Futurama
  • Gulf Stream
  • Halo Topaz
  • Hawaiian Punch
  • Hudson Bay
  • Ignition
  • Jade Kneeling
  • King George
  • Kolossos
  • Laguna
  • Maddox
  • Martini
  • Mazda MX-5
  • MGM Grand
  • Miss Congeniality
  • Mobil 1
  • Mohawk
  • Nashville
  • Neon Genesis
  • Norton Rose
  • Nutri-Gold
  • Old English
  • Oudh (The Apple)
  • Oxblood
  • Packard (Walking Liberty)
  • Platinum ($50,000+)
  • Poinsettia
  • Prometheus
  • Racing Red
  • Raging Bud
  • Red King
  • Revolution
  • Sapphire ($50,000+)
  • Sheffield Steel
  • Southern Comfort
  • Sunset Mantle
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunglow Orange
  • Thunder Road
  • Trident
  • Turquoise
  • Union Jack
  • Vivid
  • White Dog
  • Winding River

Once we included all of those cards, the app informed us that we were done! We had a fully constructed deck in no time at all! If we had more time, we could have continued adding more cards to our collection, but we had other things to do… Like spending time with our families! The important thing is that we now have a fully stocked deck that can be kept track of by just using the card itself. This makes it easier to keep track of our collection, as we don’t have to look for the cards in a face-down stack, which could easily be misaligned or stolen. It’s also nice to not have to worry about shuffling and using a deck that is prone to mistakes. Since the cards are already sorted into face-down stacks, there is no risk of mixing them up!

Making Changes

As we mentioned above, there are some exciting changes coming to Speedway. One of the biggest changes is the fact that the cards have been redesigned! Now, more than ever, it’s worth having a look at how the new cards compare to the old ones, as it’s not always easy to tell them apart, especially if you don’t have the original boxes or instruction manuals. Fortunately, we have a special tool that makes comparing cards much easier: the Trackside Programmable Card Display!

What is the Trackside Card Display? It’s a small piece of hardware that was specifically designed to make comparing cards much easier. It connects to your Bluetooth device (such as a phone or car stereo) and allows you to play cards against a computer-generated opponent. It also allows you to track the bets, hands, and wagers made during the game. This gives the gameplay a more realistic feel, as opposed to the automated nature of most games.

Here’s how it works: the Trackside Card Display is used to play cards against an artificial intelligence (A.I.) opponent. You simply download the app onto your phone or tablet, sign up with your email and create a password, and you’re good to go! No gaming PC necessary! Once you start playing, you will see an outline of a horse head with a pair of glasses on its nose: this is the face of Dr. Ken Uston, the developer of the app. Once you click on the face, you will be presented with the controls. From there, all you need to do is learn how to play baccarat (if you’re playing on a mobile device) and you’re ready to go!

The Results

After we played our first game, we were amazed at how easy it was to use! The app is truly designed for the non-technical player, as it has a very simple learning curve. This makes it much more accessible for people who have never played cards before or who simply want to learn how to play without risking large sums of money.
