Who's That NASCAR Driver?

How well do you know the drivers of NASCAR?

Introduction

Are you a NASCAR superfan? Yes? Hmm... Well, how well do you know NASCAR drivers? If you are a true fan, you may know that NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) is motorsport’s leading stock-car racing organization. It was created by William H. G. “Bill” France, a stock car driver and gas station owner in Daytona Beach. He helped put together rules to standardize racing—he turned it into a professional sport, rather than just a hobby. NASCAR racing was initially popular in the Southeast United States, but has grown into one of the most popular professional sports in the world. NASCAR races are broadcast to over 100 countries. Among all sports, professional football is the only sport to have more viewers than NASCAR in the United States.

The three largest and most popular NASCAR series are the Sprint Cup Series, the Xfinity Series, and the Camping World Truck Series. One of the greatest drivers in the history of NASCAR is Richard Petty. He is a racing legend with 200 NASCAR races won. You may know that he is also credited with inventing the window net, which helps drivers avoid injuries during a crash. Other famous NASCAR drivers include Dale Earnhardt, David Pearson, Cale Yarborough, Darrell Waltrip, Jeff Gordon, and Bobby Allison.

All of the cars in the major NASCAR racing series are precision machines that are designed with care and lots of money. Many of the body pieces and engine parts are constructed by hand and formed for specific needs on specific racetracks. NASCAR cars reach speeds above 150 mph, with many averaging speeds around 180 mph, and some pushing 200 mph. At 200 mph, a NASCAR driver travels 293 feet in one second, almost the length of a football field.

Sure, you can also get your NASCAR fix by watching movies like Days of Thunder, Steel Chariots, Talladega Nights, and The Circuit. Or you can take this quiz. Find out how much you really know about NASCAR drivers and cars!
