For nearly 70 years, NASCAR has been the premier sanctioning body for organized Stock Car Racing in the United States. During that time, the sport has grown from a Southern, regional series to a global brand with its races telecast in more than 100 countries around the world. Author John Close details the earliest races of the 20th Century that laid the groundwork for the formation of NASCAR through today’s modern events at mega-race stadiums across the country. Presented in an easy-to-read decade-by-decade “Factoid Format,” this book allows you to spend a couple of minutes or hours at a time learning about the Cars (and Trucks), Tracks, Milestones, and Personalities of NASCAR, America’s most popular and attended form of motorsports. Close, a longtime NASCAR journalist, author, team member, and race-day Spotter, also includes dozens of rare and informative photos that take you from the famed “Beach Course” at Daytona to the high banks of today’s NASCAR tracks. A must read for any NASCAR, Stock Car Racing, and American Motorsports fan, the book will provide hours of interesting entertainment as it uncovers rare information and statistical anomalies. About the Author Wisconsin native John Close grew up in racing in the 1950s cheering on his father’s jalopy stock cars four or five nights a week. John took his love of the sport to Charlotte assuming public relations duties for Bobby Labonte in 1994. John also managed marketing and media projects with Hendrick Motorsports, Richard Petty Motorsports, and Ultra Motorsports. His biggest thrills came at the track, though, being a Spotter for more than 14 years and 150 NASCAR races.
