The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, Inc. (NASCAR) is the sanctioning body for the No. 1 form of motorsports in the United States. NASCAR consists of three national series (Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series™, NASCAR XFINITY Series™, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series™), four regional series, one local grassroots series and three international series. NASCAR is a company driven by technology and innovation, both of which are central to competition and are at the core of our sport. The sport’s impact is demonstrated with a strong corporate and media footprint. In 2017, more than 1 in 4 (28%) FORTUNE 500 companies continue to invest in NASCAR; while 58 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.
