NASCAR Celebrates 70 Years of Racing
February 21, 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of NASCAR, the most epic racing tradition in our history. The landscape of the National Association for Stock Car Racing has evolved through the years, but one thing remains the same: it’s the most thrilling time you’ll ever have while sitting.
NASCAR: It’s Not Just a Race
As a highly acclaimed spectator sport, NASCAR races have garnered more than 75 million fans across the country. With over 1,200 sanctioned annual races at over 100 tracks throughout the continent, fans flock to the stands and living room big screens year-round to enjoy the spectacle to see who will earn a spot in Victory Lane.
But for many, NASCAR is more than just a race. For many drivers, every NASCAR race is another chance to prove themselves on the track. It’s an adventure where anything can happen. For some, it’s a life or death drama full of risk and high energy. And for audiences everywhere, it’s become a vivid part of the American lifestyle, earning support and a following from multiple generations and showing that not all heroes wear capes.
