If you’re new to Nascar then you’re likely asking yourself some of the following questions. How does Nascar work? What do the Nascar flags mean? How many Nascar races are there?

Formed in 1948, it has gone through many transitions and is currently the fastest growing sport in the United States and gaining thousands of new fans each week. Some critics of Nascar claim that the racing can be relatively boorish compared to other forms of auto racing such as LeMans or GT Series, but don’t knock it until you try it. Going to a Nascar race is truly a full 5 senses experience with the screams of the engines and the fans, the smoking tires and brakes, the food and the brightly colored race cars.
