What does NASCAR mean?

National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing(NASCAR)

NASCAR stands for National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. A mechanic from Atlanta named Red Vogt came up with the acronym and the name. Red Vogt was the mechanic for Red Byron, NASCAR's first champion. He owned a garage on Hemphill avenue in Atlanta where moonshiners running shine from Dawsonville, GA into Atlanta could get their cars "supped up" to outrun law enforcement. The owner of Red Byrons car was Raymond Parks a known moonshiner who still owns a liquor store on Northside drive in Atlanta. Parks, Byron and Vogt were NASCARs first 'team'. These men all met with Bill France in Daytona at Hotel on the beach. They all came together to form the oganization that we all know as NASCAR today. If this interests you please find a book called "Driving with the Devil." It tells the early history of NASCAR and is an easy read.

Dale Earnhardt Sr.

Why was Dale Earnhardt Sr called Ironhead?

Dale Sr. was nicknamed 'Ironhead' due to his stubborn ways. When he first started dirt track racing, he wouldn't take advice from everyone.

Unfortunately this way of thinking helped lead to his untimely death. Dale never wanted to wear head and neck restraints, because they were uncomfortable and restrictive. Wearing the HANS device is now mandatory in Nascar.

What are those striped curbs called on car race tracks?

The red and white striped ones? I've heard them referred to as "bumpers" and "edges."

The are also referred to as "rumble strips" as they have uneven paving to alert the drivers that they are on or near the edge of the track, just like the ones you might find on the road or highway. However, most driver's now days simple use them as part of the track instead of the warning system they were designed for!

How much money does the average Nascar pit crew member make a year?

This question cannot be answered exactly, the info you would like is usually closed to the public, but the salary is determind by the amount of money from the sponcor, what the owner is willing to pay, and what the crew chief thinks the crew member is worth. There are several schools of thought and facts, many lessor teams average between $30,000 to $50,000, middle range teams $40,000 to $70,000, top teams $60,000 to $90,000, A few even more, but they are the best of the best. This is a hard question to give exactitudes, the team owner(s) and sponsors determine the wages for crew members, with great sponsors comes huge money.
