What does NASCAR mean?
National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) is a sanctioning body for the sport of stock car racing. NASCAR created a standardized set of rules for stock-car racing and established a system for selecting a national champion based on performance at races. A stock car in its original sense means an automobile that has not been modified from its original factory configuration. But current NASCAR racing vehicles are all specially built with stronger chassis, powerful and custom-built engines, and looks like an ordinary car.
