The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) was founded in 1948 by Bill France Sr. in Daytona Beach, FL. NASCAR is the sanctioning body for the No. 1 form of motorsports in the United States. NASCAR consists of three national series (the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series™, NASCAR XFINITY Series™, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series™), four regional series, one local grassroots series and three international series. Based in Daytona Beach, FL., with offices in eight cities across North America, NASCAR sanctions more than 1,200 races in more than 30 U.S. states, Canada, Mexico and Europe.

NASCAR, in collaboration with its industry stakeholders, has implemented a new competition format in all three of its national series. The new race format is designed to emphasize aggressive racing and strategy, with the goal of delivering more dramatic moments over the course of a race and season.
