What does NASCAR mean?

User Avatar
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.

How many people died in WWI?

User Avatar
Casualties in WWI Seven or eight million soldiers died in World War 1. See the link to the right for details, or here is more input: The First World War, known as the Great War and as World War One (abbreviated WWI) after 1939, was a world conflict lasting from August 1914 to the final Armistice on November 11, 1918. The Allied Powers (led by Britain, France, Russia until 1917, and the United States after 1917), defeated the Central Powers (led by the German Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Ottoman Empire). The war caused the disintegration of four empires (Austro-Hungarian, German, Ottoman, and Russian) as well as radical change in the European and Middle Eastern maps. The Allied powers before 1917 are sometimes referred to as the Triple Entente, and the Central Powers are sometimes referred to as the Triple Alliance. About 8,500,000 soldiers were killed in World War 1, from all nations. The total with civilians is over 20,000,000. It is hard to answer even seemingly objective, fact-based questions such as this one. Historians research the numbers and they get larger. Allies: Military dead: 5 million Civilian deaths: 3 million Total of dead: 8 million Central Powers: Military dead: 4 million Civilian deaths: 3 million Total dead: 7 million Germany: 1,808,000 Austria-Hungary: 1,200,000 Russia: 1,700,000 France: 1,385,000 England: 947,000 Poland: 500,000 Italy: 460,000 Turkey: 350,000 Romania: 350,000 USA: 115,000 Australia: 60,000 Total Estimated: 8,500,000 Wounded: 19,536,000 The Encyclopedia Britannica says that 8,500,000 soldiers were killed in the war and 13,000,000 civilians including victims of the influenza epidemic of 1918. There was a total of 8 Million Deaths in World War One. 5 Million of these deaths, were from the military of Entente Powers, Allies. The other 3 Million were from the Central Powers Military.

Asked in NASCAR, NASCAR Drivers Teams and Sponsors, Dale Earnhardt Sr.

Why was Dale Earnhardt Sr called Ironhead?

User Avatar
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.

Asked in Cheerleading, NASCAR Drivers Teams and Sponsors, Break Dancing

What are the positions in cheerleading?

User Avatar
Although, there are many positions in cheerleading, many are focused around a stunt. Within each stunt there are 4 positions. First, a flyer. The flyer is the individual who gets thrown up or pushed up in the air. A flyers job is to be very tight, and selfcontroling while at the same time flexible, aware of her surroundings and focused. Supporting the flyer there is a maximum of 4 people - two bases, a backspot and a front spot. The bases are the ones who are the most responsible for getting a flyer into the air aswell as her safety coming back down to the ground. Bases usually hold the flyers feet in a specific way, depending on the stunt. A bases must have upper body strength aswell as leg strength. It is very important the base's legs give most of the power in lifting the flyer. This prevents pulling back muscles. A bases aswell as the entire stunt group must keep their eyes on the flyer at all times. The backspot is responsible in assisting a flyer into a stunt aswell as security once the flyer is in the air. The flyer is usually loaded in by the backspot grabbing the flyers waist of butt depending on the stunt. When coming out of a stunt the backspot job is to support the flyers back. The front spot is the last part of a stunt. The front is usually present for ankle support for the flyer or wrist support for the bases. The front is also there for security incase of a fall When dismounting a stunt the front is responsible for the flyer's legs. There are other various positions in cheerleading such as tumblers who tumble throughout the rountine. The entire team usually participates in dancing.

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

User Avatar
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.
