Among Panini’s diverse Nascar offerings, the Donruss Racing set stands out due to its low entry point, an abundance of inserts and retro-themed cards.

This highly anticipated set promises to deliver an exciting collection of cards featuring top drivers, cars, and moments from NASCAR. With its broad mix of inserts and hits, Donruss Racing is a beloved brand among collectors.

2024 Donruss Racing release formats

Like its checklist, Donruss Racing comes in a variety of formats for collectors: Hobby boxes, Blaster boxes, and Jumbo Value packs.

We expect the 2024 Donruss Racing to mirror the 2023 format. However, Panini has released information for just the hobby boxes. This article will be updated with more details when they are available.

  • 24 packs per box
  • 20 boxes per case
  • 3 Autographs or Memorabilia cards
  • 24 Inserts
  • 24 Optic
  • 24 Parallels
  • Set size: TBA
  • Hobby boxes are available for preorder for $72.95.

2024 Donruss Racing checklist

The 2024 Donruss Racing checklist has an expected mix of base cards, inserts, autographs, and relics showcasing NASCAR’s biggest stars.

The base set has a structure similar to that of recent Donruss Racing sets, along with well-loved subsets like Rated Rookies and Downtown. Each hobby box contains 3 autographs or memorabilia cards and 24 parallels, including the new Red and Blue parallel.

There’s an array of thrilling options for all collectors. The prestigious Base Optic Signatures highlights opti-chrome autographs of beloved drivers, including parallels like Pandora, Gold, and Gold Vinyl.

Suited Up Swatches introduces three new memorabilia sets feature specific material. Suited Up Swatches features a firesuit, Pedal to the Metal Materials contains a piece of sheet metal, while Burning Rubber Materials features a piece of a rare tyre.

The Season Highlights Signatures immortalize the highs and triumphs of the NASCAR season, showcasing upsets to winning streaks and career milestones achieved during the season, with autographs adding an extra layer of allure.

Fans’ beloved Base Rated Rookies highlight the brightest young talent in various parallels. The Downtown insert features racing icons like Chase Elliot, Joey Logano, and Kyle Busch and is sure to excite collectors.

The Base Optic Race Kings insert returns with a new optic element, featuring two new parallels—Pink Velocity and Black Velocity—alongside Race Kings autographs, offering collectors an exhilarating journey through the racing world.

Lastly, Panini introduced a new insert to the Donruss Racing brand, the new Production Line insert. It pays tribute to NASCAR legends’ milestones and accomplishments.

2024 Donruss Racing value

Let’s discuss how well this set will perform once it is released. To do this, we consider how the previous sets have performed and decide whether or not to invest in this set, as well as the best route (Wax or Singles).


2023 Panini Donruss Racing Hobby Box$153
2022 Panini Donruss Racing Hobby Box$129.99
2021 Panini Donruss Racing Hobby Box$148.99

The last three Donruss Racing sets have kept their value very well. All three have at least doubled in value from their price at the release date. This makes the Donruss Racing hobby boxes acceptable investments for collectors looking for profits.

Unlike most racing products, where the prices of hobby boxes have struggled to double their retail price, this seems standard with Donruss Racing hobby boxes.


Let us look at how well top singles from the last three Donruss Racing sets have performed.

2023 Donruss Racing Nascar Downtown Jeff Gordon #JG SSP Insert$152.50
2023 Panini Donruss Nascar Downtown Hailie Deegan #HD PSA 9 Mint$147.50
2022 Donruss Nascar Racing Hailie Deegan Downtown PSA 10 Gem Mint$137.5
2022 Panini Donruss Racing Nascar Downtown Denny Hamlin #DH SSP Insert$102.50
2021 Donruss NASCAR Timeless Treasures Signatures Red Danica Patrick 17/25 Auto$125.99
2021 Panini Donruss Racing Hailie Deegan Downtown SP Insert SGC 9.5 Mint+ #HD  $103.19
2021 Panini Donruss Racing Dale Earnhardt Jr Downtown #JR  $240.50

These prices might not look remarkable, especially considering how much some trading cards sell for in today’s market. However, they represent some profit potential in collecting top singles from Donruss Racing packs.

Cards of top drivers are sure to hold their value and even increase in value as they keep delivering on the track.

However, I’d like to round this section up with caution. The Donruss Racing cards should be considered for hobby enthusiasts only. The $70 per hobby box point keeps them within the limit of hobby collecting.

While it’s possible to make some profit if you hit a 1/1 card or a good autograph, it’s essential not to set high expectations when purchasing a Donruss Racing pack.

If profit is your primary goal, other trading card products on the market offer better value and potential returns.

Bottomline of the 2024 Donruss Racing

No matter the type of racing collector you fancy yourself to be, the 2024 Donruss Racing trading card set is an excellent addition to your collection.

It offers tons of inserts, unique retro designs, and several hit cards to make for an entertaining chase. Its fair entry price and generous number of cards make it perfect for NASCAR fans and collectors building a racing card collection.

While it is not the most lucrative investment option, it is perfect for many NASCAR fans. This set is also great for new collectors looking to build a collection quickly.

What’s not to like? It offers a great collection of cards and tons of inserts, and you get an autograph or memorabilia in each box!

If you’d love more high-end racing offerings, you could consider sets such as Panini National Treasure Racing, Panini Prizm, or look at Topps offerings.
