The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, LLC (NASCAR) is a sanctioning and operating business for stock car racing in the United States. It is a privately owned company founded by Bill France Sr. in 1948. The first stock car race sanctioned by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing was the NASCAR Strictly Stock Series (NASCAR). It was held on a 0.75-mile (1.21-kilometer) dirt oval at the Charlotte Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina, on June 19, 1949. Bob Flock won the pole position for the race with a maximum speed of 67.958 mph (109.368 km/h). Glenn Dunaway won the race in his 1947 Ford but was later disqualified because his rear springs were wide out. Jim Roper, the driver of a 1949 Lincoln, was awarded the victory instead.
NASCAR is a governing body in the United States that governs multiple racing events.
There are three major series that fall under the NASCAR framework:
Camping World Truck Series
NASCAR CUP SERIES
The NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) is the highest level of professional racing in the sport. It is the most popular and profitable NASCAR series. The NASCAR Cup Series is the main racing series of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR). The Grand National Division was used from 1950 to 1970, while the Strictly Stock Division was used from 1949 to 1949. The NASCAR Winston Cup Series (1971–2003) began in 1971 when the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company leased the series' naming rights. The season is divided into two parts. The championship is determined by a point system in which points are awarded depending on finish position and laps won. Following the first 26 races, 16 drivers were ranked according to their overall win total. They are picked primarily based on victories in the first 26 races. They compete in the last ten races, where the point difference is the smallest. It is known as the NASCAR playoffs.
NASCAR XFINITY SERIES
The NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) is a stock car racing series sanctioned by NASCAR. It's known as NASCAR's "minor league" circuit and acts as a training ground for drivers hoping to compete in the organization's top-tier series, the NASCAR Cup Series. NXS races are frequently held the day before a Cup Series race scheduled for the following weekend as a warm-up. In 2022, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will celebrate its 41st season. The season kicks off on February 19 at Daytona International Speedway and ends on November 5 at Phoenix Raceway.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is a pickup truck racing series run by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. It is the only series in NASCAR that races production pickup truck-based stock cars. The NASCAR Truck series is the third tier of NASCAR's national divisions, following the second-tier NASCAR Xfinity Series and the top-tier NASCAR Cup Series. The NASCAR SuperTruck Series was introduced in 1995, followed by the Craftsman Truck Series from 1996 to 2008, the Camping World Truck Series from 2009 to 2018, the Gander Outdoors Truck Series in 2019, and the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in 2020. The series came back to the Camping World Truck Series starting in 2021.
Racing and Strategy
Qualifying: A Nascar Truck Series field consists of 36 trucks in qualifying races. It was reduced to 32 trucks, but due to the COVID-19 epidemic, it was expanded to 36 trucks in qualifying races and 40 in non-qualifying races to accommodate as many trucks as possible. A single-truck qualifying system is used for the majority of races. Each vehicle gets two laps on tracks less than 1.25 miles, with the quickest lap counted. Each truck only gets one timed lap on tracks longer than 1.25 miles; similar to Formula 1, road course races use a two-part knockout qualifying format, with the top 12 qualifiers from Q1 advancing to Q2.
Tracks: The Nascar Truck Series race primarily on short tracks and tracks in the Western United States; the series' inaugural schedule included races in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington, with only five races in the Southeast United States, including one at Louisville Motor Speedway, which was not part of the Cup Series. The Truck Series started racing at Eldora Speedway in 2013, marking the first time NASCAR had raced on dirt since the 1970 NASCAR Grand National Series season.  As of 2015, The series has 20 tracks, including one dirt track (Eldora), one road course (Canadian Tire Motorsport Park), two short tracks (Bristol and Martinsville), two superspeedways (Daytona and Talladega), and 14 intermediate ovals. The most recent addition to the series schedule is Atlanta Motor Speedway, which returned to hosting Truck races in 2015 after being absent for two years.
The Nascar Camping World Truck Racing Schedule is as follows for different events :
This series is known as the TOYOTA 200, conducted on June 4 at WORLDWIDE TECHNOLOGY RACEWAY(WWTR) in Madison, Illinois, USA.
Sonoma Raceway is a modern motorsports track that can accommodate various events and vehicles. Sonoma Raceway's full-length road track is 2.52 miles long and has 12 corners. The elevation shift featured in the circuit is one of the most noticeable elements of this spectacular track. The track's highest point is turn 3a, while its lowest point turns 10 - a huge 160 feet of height difference between the two. Few race circuits have as much elevation variation. Thus, drivers must handle corners and elevation changes to complete the circuit safely. The Sonoma Raceway, in addition to the complete 2.52-mile circuit, has the flexibility to change its path by using additional corners. For example, a 2.22-mile track is often used for motorcycle racing, whereas a 1.99-mile track is utilized for the NASCAR race that takes place every June. One of the best aspects of operating at Sonoma Raceway is our ability to choose the correct combination of turns to meet the needs of our customers and their driving experience.
