About NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
Stock car racing has been around for the better part of last century. It has grown tremendously in popularity in the form of
NASCAR in recent years, so much so that only professional football has more viewership than NASCAR in USA. A stock car is a
modified standard car which has been upgraded with bigger engines, specialized suspensions, brakes and safety equipment to make
it faster. Typically it can go beyond 200 mph. Further modifications and additions are added to make it safer for the driver in
case of a crash. Although the race started in US and mostly US made car were a staple, recently car makers from other countries
have been a part of it since the mid 2000's.
The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing was founded in 1948 by Bill France Sr. whose vision for stock car racing has
lifted this racing sport to new heights. Today, most fortune 500 companies like to sponsor this exciting racing event which is
watched by hundreds of thousands of fans in live events and by millions on television in domestic as well as international market.
The headquarters for NASCAR are situated in Daytona Beach, Florida, where the very first races took place. According to the
official website, NASCAR now sanctions more than 1200 races taking place in over 30 cities throughout USA, Canada and Mexico, and
taking place on 100 different racing tracks. Charlotte Motor Speedway is one such track where different NASCAR races are held.
Situated in North Carolina, this 1.5 oval holds opened in 1960 and where 140,000 spectators can come and enjoy their favorite
NASCAR race, whether it is Coca Cola 600 or Sprint All Star Race.

ending in November at Homestead Miami Speedway
. The races take place in a variety of tracks which include short tracks (oval less
