Does anybody have any pics and/or cars from FedEx's first season? Who was the driver the first year? Jason Leffler? For some reason I can't remember. If anybody has the cars in 1/24 I would be interested in trading for them. I wanna build a Denny Hamlin collection, but figured even though he didn't drive the first year, the paint schemes were pretty cool, and I could maybe get them pretty cheap, so thought I would start there.
If ya'll can help, by all means gimme a holla!!!

Leffler did drive the 11 car first year in 2005. I don't have any cars of him though.

The 18 carried FEDEX at the Ccca-Cola 600 in 2005.

Yeah, that was a race that the #11 didn't make, so to get the sponsor in the race, LaBonte drove the FedEx colors. If I remember right, he finished 2nd, just getting beat at the line. Didn't Johnson get him on the outside comming to the checkered?

Yup, Jason Leffler, Terry Labonte, J.J. Yeley, and Denny Hamlin took time behind the wheel of the #11 FedEx car in 2005. Also the race of Bobby Labonte in the #18 FedEx car (a race I was at!). Hamlin proved it wasn't the car that was the problem! lol.

They made all four of the #11 cars in 1/24th Action for Jason Leffler. Also in 1/64th hanger boxes. There is also a #18 FedEx 1/24th for Bobby Labonte. I'm going to try and find as many different #11 Lefflers I can at Loudon next weekend. I need all four.

Yes, they made all 4 in 1/24 and 1/64. You can expect to pay $ 15-25 plus shipping per car on the auction site
the Labonte is also out there and pretty rare about $35-50 +ship. If you find a cheaper outlet let me know, I'm looking for all of them as well. BTW, Hamlin raced at least 1 of those paint schemes on '05 and had a great finish at Kansas, but they never produced a car with denny's name on it.
