Stock Car Racing

Stock Car Racing

"Stock car" racing began in the earliest days of the automobile, as automakers sought to prove their worth and motor car enthusiasts wanted to see the machines they could buy in the dealerships pitted against one another in competition.

Stock car racing as we know it today began after World War II, first as a hobby for people in the southeast United States who had other professions (famously, many were moonshine runners) but wanted to prove their driving skills against one another, usually on oval dirt tracks in big American sedans.  Attempts to organize these small competitions into a national championship found success when Bill France founded NASCAR and began stock car racing's first successful national championship series in 1949.

Soon the American car manufacturers would support stock car racing as a marketing tool, in hopes that proving their cars better than the other automakers on the racetracks would help sell cars.

NASCAR became a national sport in the United States beginning in 1979 with the first flag-to-flag live broadcast of that year's Daytona 500. During the 1980's the need for safety and equal competition in an era where car design had changed dramatically began to result in "stock cars" that looked and functioned less and less like the real street vehicles they were designed to mimic, and today a "stock car" almost always refers to a type of tube-frame design V8-engined rear wheel drive race car with a full sheet metal body designed to resemble a common street-legal production car that the average middle-class American can afford.

The current world center of stock car racing is the city & suburbs of Charlotte, North Carolina, home to NASCAR's headquarters, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and most NASCAR teams. Having spent most of its early years based in the American south, stock car racing has races, drivers, and fans from all across the United States.  Stock car racing has made some attempts to become an international sport with races in Japan and series in Europe and Australia, but so far international competition has been limited to drivers and automakers from around the world coming to the United States to compete. Countries with winning representatives in the modern era of NASCAR's Cup Series now include Japan (Toyota), Mexico (Daniel Suárez), Colombia Juan Pablo Montoya, and Australia (Marcos Ambrose).

2021 Season  Coming soon.
2020 Season  COVID-19 puts the sport on hold, Chase Elliott wins his first Cup Series championship, and the sport experiences a culture war in an election year.
2019 Season  The Mustang becomes the basis for the Ford body on the Cup Series level. ARCA runs its first full season under NASCAR ownership.
2018 Season  The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 replaces the Chevrolet SS on the Cup Series level.
2017 Season  The end of an era, 2017 would be the final season for Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth (except for his unplanned 2020 return), and Danica Patrick. Michael Waltrip and road course ringer Boris Said also made their final Cup appearances.
2016 Season  A historic season for the champions at the top of each of NASCAR's national series. Jimmie Johnson won his record-tying seventh Cup title, Mexico's Daniel Suárez became NASCAR's first champion born outside of the United States, and Johnny Sauter finally closed the deal on the Camping World Truck Series championship.
2015 Season  After the retirements of Terry Labonte and Jeff Burton, 2015 was the first season without a 1970s driver in the field. The NASCAR Nationwide Series became the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
2014 Season  The NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup made another major change to a knockout format to decide a final four drivers to compete for the championship in the final race. Tony Stewart had an interesting year, killing sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. in a small sprint car event in New York and then going on to become champion as owner of Kevin Harvick's Sprint Cup car.
2013 Season  Jimmie Johnson returned to the top of the Sprint Cup series with his sixth championship, putting him just one away from the hallowed 7-championship perch of Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the 2012 Daytona 500 2012 Season  The 2012 season began with a bang as a suspension failure sent Juan Pablo Montoya's car into a jet dryer at the Daytona 500, which finished in the early hours of a Tuesday morning! Brad Keselowski's Cup championship was the first for car owner Roger Penske and a parting gift for Dodge in their last season of Cup competition since rejoining the sport in 2000.

Jacques Villeneuve at the 2011 Bucyrus 200 2011 Season  NASCAR debuts a new points system and Tony Stewart became the first owner-driver to win the Cup since 1992.  The Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang make their Nationwide Series debuts.

Regan Smith at the 2007 Toyota/Save Mart 350 2007 Season It was a dark year for a large group of traditionalist NASCAR fans as the winged Car of Tomorrow made its debut and Dale Earnhardt Jr. shocked the stock car racing world when he announced that starting in 2008 he would be racing for his father's fans' nemesis: Hendrick Motorsports.

Kyle Petty at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway NASCAR Tire Test 1992  The increasing popularity of NASCAR was acknowledged with testing for upcoming races starting in 1994 at the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway, while the era of the small-team owner-driver ended with Alan Kulwicki winning the Winston Cup. (it would be 19 years until any other owner-driver won the Cup, and he did so with a 2-car multimillion dollar operation)

1991
1990  One of the most enduring events of 1990 happened off the track, as in June the big budget Tom Cruise film Days of Thunder was released, bringing NASCAR culture across the nation and popularizing such phrases as "rubbin' is racin'" beyond the die-hard stock car fans of the day.
