Probably not a ton of NASCAR fans on Carpokes but then again, who knows? maybe there's more than I suspect.

No matter, I'll post odds and ends here at times and we welcome any and all who might have something to add or talk about. Maybe we can create a repository of data in the Racing sub-forum for all of the many different types of sanctioned racing worldwide - current and historical, professional and amateur. It's a long and rich history.

Back to NASCAR. While I personally prefer road course, GT type racing, enduros especially, any kind of racing has a place of interest for me, and that includes NASCAR which has plenty to entertain, such as driving at 200 or so mph nose to tail, inches away from each other, hoping to survive the (usually) inevitable contact. The drivers are of a different skill set than some others but they are as talented and fearless as any and are incredible in their own right, taking a back seat to none. And yeah, they do run road courses here and there so that's a plus!

I'm a big fan of Autoweek (aka Competition Press) because they have excellent writers with lifetimes of experiences doing a fantastic job covering racing and motorized vehicles of all types. So, there will probably be many links to Autoweek/Competion Press (I love the old name), among others.

For a great introduction to NASCAR, the just completed Autoweek series of articles "75 Great, Historic, and Sometimes Sad Stories That Impacted NASCAR", trace the history and many of the crucial events of NASCAR from its Bill France, Sr. beginnings in 1947 onward, touching on the wild characters, the wild cars, and the wild everything else associated with NASCAR.

The link points to the page containing each of the 75 writings. It's very easy to browse around however you wish. ... d568259d8a
