NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) is a racing sport in the United States.The three largest racing series sanctioned by NASCAR are the Sprint Cup, the Nationwide Series and the Camping World Series.
The unofficial racing that became NASCAR started during the Prohibition Era of the 1920′s. From 1920 to 1933, it was illegal for people in the United States to sell or drink alcoholic beverages. Even though it was illegal, people still made beer and whiskey (or also known as “moonshine”), and the makers needed people to drive their illegal whiskey to their customers. The drivers were known as “bootleggers”. These bootleggers were known for making their cars’ engines faster and driving fast. Eventually, they got together and started racing to see who was the best. These unofficial races became NASCAR.
