This speed race is second only to the “king” sport of the US – rugby – in terms of attraction to the audience and the media. Each year NASCAR welcomes a record number of audiences from all over the world to be immersed in the atmosphere of passion, suspense and excitement.
Born in 1984, NASCAR is divided into three major prizes: Sprint Cup, Nationwide Series and Craftsman Truck Series. Every year, NASCAR brings together over 1,500 riders from 39 states of USA, Canada and Mexico.
Originating only as an entertainment movement in Southeast America, NASCAR has gradually grown and become the second most important professional sporting event in the United States. Each season takes place broadcast live on television.
However, it was not until 1996-1998 that this prestigious race was expanded to Japan and Australia. Currently NASCAR offices have appeared in many big cities such as Charlotte, Mooresville, Concord, Conover, New York, Los Angeles, Arkansas, Mexico, Toronto.
Unlike most unusual tournaments that host their most prestigious races in the middle or at the end of the season, NASCAR’s “The Great American Race” takes place first and is one of four important races. most of the whole series.
In addition, this race is also strictly controlled both in terms of safety and competitive factors because of the long race track and sharp turns. All vehicles are fitted with a Restrictor Plate – a device that limits the vehicle’s air intake.
Currently, the Daytona 500 with its 500-mile race distance is the most attractive race in the US with a higher number of television viewers than any other.
