NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Details

NASCAR Overview

Founded in 1948, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, also known as NASCAR, is the nation’s preeminent organization of stock car racing. It calls Daytona Beach, Florida as its official headquarters but maintains a worldwide presence with offices in Mexico City, Toronto and seven more spread throughout the United States (four of which are in North Carolina). Over the past decade, many media pundits have labeled NASCAR as one of the fastest growing sports in America due to the excitement on the track and the personalities of the drivers off of it.

Bill France, Sr. was the founding father of NASCAR and also served as the Chairman and CEO. France himself was a race car driver from the mid-1920s up until World War II and he sensed a growing change within the interest of stock car racing. But he was also a promoter of races so he had a good feel for that side of the business as well. France knew that many drivers felt their promoters were cheating them out of profits and he knew there needed to be some governing body to legislate these dealings. He began talks with other influential members of the racing community including drivers, promoters, mechanics, and car owners and the result was the formation of NASCAR on February 21, 1948 in Daytona.

NASCAR operates many sanctioned series with the most popular being the Sprint Cup Series. Introduced in 1949 as the Strictly Stock Series, it currently runs as a series of races that assign points to drivers based on where they finish and laps led. After the first 26 races, the top 16 drivers are then seeded and qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup which is 10 races divided into four rounds. The Challenger Round (races 27-29) contains all 16 drivers, the Contender Round (races 30-32) has the top 12 drivers, and the Eliminator Round (races 33-35) is only reserved for the top eight drivers. The top four drivers after the Eliminator races then advance to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship which is a single race for the Cup Series title. In 2014 Kevin Harvick claimed the throne by winning the Ford EcoBoost 400 in the final race and took home his first Sprint Cup Championship. To ensure a full field of drivers, and not just the 16 in the hunt for the championship, NASCAR awards those drivers who finish outside of the Chase with bonuses and prize money.

Due in part to the large sporting venues that the events take place in, NASCAR annually leads all North American sports leagues in average weekly attendance. In 2013, NASCAR averaged 99,853 attendants for its 36 events. That number is over 30,000 more than the next highest league which is the NFL. The largest of these venues is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which is located in an Indianapolis suburb and is home to the Brickyard 400. Its seating capacity is 257,325 but with infield seating, the venue can hold an estimated 400,000. Both figures make the speedway the highest-capacity sporting venue in the world.

While the Brickyard 400 may be NASCAR’s most attended race, the most popular event is the Daytona 500 held at the Daytona International Speedway. The 200 lap race is considered the Super Bowl of Stock Car Racing and was won a record seven times by The King, Richard Petty.

In 2007 ground was broken in Charlotte, North Carolina for a facility to house the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The project was completed in 2010 and one day after opening, the inaugural class was inducted. The five members of the first class were Dale Earnhardt Sr., Richard Petty, Junior Johnson, Bill France Sr., and Bill France Jr. Earnhardt and Petty each won the Sprint Cup Series a record seven times as drivers. Johnson won 50 races as a driver and then became a racing team owner and captured six Sprint Cup Championships in that capacity. France Sr. handed over the reins of NASCAR to his son in 1972 and France Jr. brought the sport to unprecedented heights in terms of popularity before then passing the baton to his own son, Brian France, in 2003. A total of 30 members can now be referred to as NASCAR Hall of Famers as five people have been inducted each year since 2010.

Some of the most popular current drivers are household names, not just in the racing world, but in the minds of casual sports fans as well. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has followed in his father’s footsteps and has even succeeded Dale Sr. in terms of popularity. Dale Jr. has won NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver Award a record 12 times which is eight more than any other driver. Jimmie Johnson has won six Sprint Cup Series Championships including a record five straight from 2006-2010. He is also the only NASCAR driver to ever win the Associated Press Athlete of the Year award which he claimed in 2009. Jeff Gordon is a five-time winner of the Sprint Cup Series Championship and is the most financially successful driver as his estimated career earnings of over $144 million is first all-time in NASCAR.

In recent years NASCAR has made great efforts to restore the heights of popularity that it reached in the mid-2000s. One of these ways is by expanding its brand globally by looking into races, and racers, from foreign countries. Some of their minor circuits have had courses in Mexico and Canada and international automotive manufacturers like Toyota have started to create vehicles. Also, the Drive for Diversity program has continued to develop and promote minority and female drivers. Kyle Larson, a Japanese American has 20 top ten finishes on the Sprint Cup Series and was the 2014 Rookie of the Year on that series. Danica Patrick is the most successful female driver of all time and became the first female to win a Sprint Cup Series pole which she accomplished at the 2013 Daytona 500.

Despite its localized beginnings, NASCAR has grown into one of the biggest sporting organizations in the world and has become a staple of American culture.
