History of NASCAR

History of NASCAR The origins of NASCAR can be traced back to the prohibition era. The transportation of alcohol had become a huge business and these bootlegging runs created the need for self-modified vehicles capable of evading police. These stock modifications were based on boosting speed and handling. Following the de-criminalization of alcohol in 1933, Daytona Beach instead became a popular place to set world land speed records in stock cars. There, it was first conceived of as an organization by a mechanic, turned gas station owner and racing enthusiast named William France Sr. Join WatchMojo.com as we learn more about NASCAR.
