With roots that can be traced back to prohibition era rum running, the speed contests sanctioned by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) have evolved to become America’s most watched sporting events. NASCAR: 60 Years chronicles the history of this extraordinarily popular form of racing and examines how it came to capture the public imagination. Important cars representing the evolution of NASCAR illustrate how the stock racers of yesterday have developed into the sophisticated machines of the twenty-first century. Also in the exhibition are trophies, memorabilia, and apparel of popular NASCAR heroes and engaging audio/visuals.
