In 2017, more than 1 in 4 (28%) FORTUNE 500 companies continue to invest in NASCAR; while 51 million unique TV viewers, 55 million unique visitors to NASCAR’s in-house operated digital properties and 12 million followers on social platforms consume the sport at home. The International Motor Sports Association™ (IMSA®) governs the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship™, the premier U.S. sports car series. Based in Daytona Beach, Fla., with offices in eight cities across North America, NASCAR sanctions more than 1,200 races in more than 30 U.S. states, Canada, Mexico and Europe.
