NASCAR’s Brief History

The history of NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) dates back to 1948. During that year, the first championship team was owned by Hall of Famer Raymond Parks, who won both the Modified and Strictly Stock divisions. Both of these drivers, along with Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr., went on to win multiple championships. Since then, there have been countless changes in the sport, from new rules to a new logo.

The Popularity of NASCAR
In the 1950s, the sport had to make do with only one division due to post-World War II demand. The popularity of NASCAR increased dramatically in the 1990s. In 1994, the organization hosted the first Brickyard 400, which was attended by President Reagan. In 1998, the Daytona 500 prize money tripled, but the emergence of NASCAR’s new television package helped revive the sport. The Daytona 500 grew by 48% to 18.7 million viewers between 1993 and 2002, and the first broadcast of the Daytona 500 was broadcast on FOX Sports. As a result, the series enjoyed a 32% increase in viewers over the 2000 broadcast.
NASCAR has seen a boost in popularity in recent years. The ratings for races on television have increased for six consecutive years. Despite this, the sport is still trying to maintain interest in the sport through the summer months. To gauge the popularity of NASCAR, WSN analyzed Google Trends data. The numbers revealed that the sport is growing in popularity in every state, regardless of population size. This trend may be a sign of a better NASCAR racing scene.
In addition, fans from all walks of life can watch NASCAR races. A recent Busch Light Clash race in Los Angeles was a good introduction to NASCAR for those who do not normally follow auto racing. However, the race may have been a one-off, and NASCAR is still trying to expand their fan base and attract new fans.
