It's been said that the first race was held the day the second car was built. Since the very first days of automobiles, racing has been a proving ground for the new machines and their engineers, providing a platform for showing off their capabilities to a wide audience thrilled with the high-speed action. Automobile racers from Barney Oldfield up to Brad Keselowski have become household names, road car companies like Ferrari have been built from their racing successes, and events like the Indianapolis 500 have become an American tradition.
Racing Results & Records
Race Results and individual driver Racing Records are a work in progress for the summer of 2015. When completed they will include the Indianapolis 500 from the beginning, Formula 1 from the beginning, the top three current touring series of NASCAR, most of ARCA's top racing series since the mid-1990's, and other various mostly American stock car racing events.
Note that just because a race does not appear on a results sheet or driver's record does not mean it didn't happen, it simply means that we haven't gotten around to adding it yet.
Racing results are sourced from many entities and sometimes copied into the Library by hand. Even a minuscule error rate magnified over hundreds of thousands of lines of results will result in some mistakes. Mistakes made by our varied original sources may also be copied into the Library's information. Please let us know of any errors made by emailing admin@CarsAndRacingStuff.com. Thank you.

Sprint Car & Midget Car Racing Article Index
|Pre-WWII Racing Racing from the dawn of the automobile until 1942, when the need for resources to put into the war effort had put a halt to almost all automobile racing for the duration of the war. Because of the spotty news coverage, lost information, and multi-class racing meets in the early days of motorsport there aren't separations for this era by class of vehicle. This section includes the Indianapolis 500, the Elgin Road Course Races, Mille Miglia, Vanderbilt Cup, and Grand Prix racing.|
|Stock Car Racing American-style, primarily oval-track racing of cars that were originally regular American sedans but now is competed amongst purpose-built race cars whose appearance is based on common street vehicles. This section includes NASCAR and ARCA racing.|
|Open Wheel Racing Commonly known as "Formula" or "Indy" racing, competed on tarmac amongst cars designed to be single center-seat race cars. While they technically have "open wheels," sprint cars and modifieds are separate classes of car and racing altogether. This section includes Formula 1 and the IndyCar Series.|
|Sports/Touring Car Racing Road-course racing competed amongst closed-fendered cars. This section includes the 24 Hours of Le Mans, V8 SuperCars Australia, United SportsCar Series, SCCA, Grand Am, Trans Am, etc.|
