Founded on February 21, 1948, NASCAR is the organization that oversees three national racing series: the Cup Series, the Nationwide Series, and the Xfinity Series. It also operates other regional series. Since the mid-1970s, the organization has changed the competitive structure of the sport. Previously, the best driver was determined by who could win an individual race. Today, standing in the championship points is more important. NASCAR changed the competition structure in 2004 by introducing a ten-race playoff. Each top ten finishers in regular season points will be entered into the Chase.

To determine the winner, NASCAR uses a computer-generated scoring system. Each driver is given a point for each lap he leads. In the case of a tie, the number of wins breaks it. To ensure that all races are completed under green conditions, NASCAR employs overtime in all three national series. During overtime, all restarts are made within a designated restart zone.


The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) is a family-owned and operated company venture that sanctions and governs multiple auto racing sports events. It was founded by Bill France, Sr., from 1947 through 1948. As of 2018, the company’s CEO is Jim France, the son of Bill France, Sr.

NASCAR is the largest sanctioning body of stock car racing in the United States.
