The first sanctioned stock car race of the "modern" era was held in 1948 in Daytona Beach, FL. The race was held on a course comprised partially of unpaved beach front, and the car that won that inaugural event was owned by a former outlaw moonshine runner. Today, American stock car racing is a multibillion-dollar industry, a powerful medium for corporate advertising, and one of the most popular spectator sports in the country.About the Author:
