NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) Originally, stock meant unchanged from the auto-showroom floor: The race car came straight from an automobile dealer's stock and raced. Because of loopholes many rules have changed today.

Popularity is as long as spectators have enjoyed the fantasy that they could take their personal cars onto the track and compete with the pros. Alas today they are strictly race cars, but popularity is just as strong.

There are several main tracks across the country supporting this event in the UK

This is a mature sport and requires a driving license.

Driving license, and club license are essential for this sport. You are part of a team with pit members and servicing crews so team work is also a requisite.

Today's Cup cars are strictly race. A rear-wheel-drive, carburetter-push rod-V-8-powered, tube-framed, hand-built Cup car is more closely related to a '50s Indy car (or a current sprint car) than it is to a front-wheel-drive, fuel injected-overhead-cam-V-6-powered, stamped uni body, production-car. It is muscle car on wheels where one fights the wheel on the straights and basically does little on the bend as all the wheels are independently aligned and shocked.

This is no light weight sport, it is fast and furious requiring a lot of dedication and calls for utmost fitness and being alert and respond through a blurred vision at high speed, with a well equipped maintenance crew who are equally dedicated.

This is a team event where everyone needs to understand and basically apply all skills and knowledge. The making of life long friends is an asset from this sport.
