NASCAR, or the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, is a privately-owned American auto racing company based in Daytona Beach, Florida. It is best known for organizing stock-car racing events involving production-based automobiles. Co-founded in 1948 by former American race driver Bill France Sr., NASCAR-sanctioned races are held all across the United States, as well as in Canada, Japan, Mexico, and Australia, as a part of NASCAR’s new global initiative.
NASCAR has grown to become part of American sporting culture, although NASCAR fans tend to be predominantly male and viewership is made of a predominantly white audience. In 2016-2017, White viewers accounted for a 91 percent share of NASCAR’s total viewers in the United States.
