NASCAR is rapidly growing to become one of the most
popular sporting events in America. It's been an unprecedented era for NASCAR interest. Before the 1990s, stock car racing was primarily a Southern sport, but now you'll find NASCAR races all over the nation. Grab your NASCAR Tickets and experience the adrenaline that the roar of the engine brings as cars fly past nearing 200 miles per hour!
Key figures behind the NASCAR boom in the 1990s included the late Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon. Complete opposites in appeal, the "Intimidator" and the "Rainbow Warrior" helped give the sport the personality it lacked since"The King" Richard retired. Since then NASCAR has become more than just a thing of the South, as it's popularity is evident all over America.
NASCAR drivers of today bring more than just speed to the track. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is carrying on his father's auto-racing legacy. Tony Stewart is NASCAR's bad boy, never afraid to speak (or drive) his mind. Jeff Gordon is fighting to stay at the top, while Robby Gordon is fighting to keep his cool and steer clear of fines and docked drivers points this year.
Newcomers like Clint Bowyer and Martin Truex Jr. are also shaking things up, making the battle for the Top 10 all the more intriguing. The top 10 finishers go on to the Championship round, where they race for the Winston Cup Championship. While the Daytona 500 may be the biggest race of the year, the last few weeks could prove to be just as exciting when the Checker Auto Parts 500, the Mountain Dew Southern 500 and the Ford 400 may all be crucial races for drivers trying to make that final Cup push. Everyone's revving their engines and looking forward to seeing how NASCAR plays out, so grab NASCAR tickets to catch the excitement!
