NASCAR, the acronym stands for the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing.

William France originally founded NASCAR in 1948 to organize and promote racing on tracks. Several racetracks existed across the Southeast, each with their own rules and regulations. Hence, the racing sport lacked in direction. Through William France's steadfast vision, he delivered that much badly needed direction and professionalized a sport, in its time, which was considered a hobby.

As well, William France founded the International Speedway Corporation, which gave NASCAR the Daytona International Speedway in 1959 and subsequently, the Talladega Superspeedway in 1969.

Upon William France's retirement, his two sons, Bill Jr. and Jim assumed control. Bill Jr, through his vision, set the standard by which all motorsports are measured.

Currently, millions of NASCAR race fans come in droves to see NASCAR racing events throughout the U. S. NASCAR racing has to be the most heart pounding, exciting form of motorsports entertainment nationwide.
