About This Quiz

The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) is one of the largest racing organizations in the world and is responsible for well over 1,000 races, mainly held in the United States but also in Canada and Mexico. It is a popular racing competition where the cars speed along inches away from each other, undoubtedly adding to the thrill and excitement of this iconic race.

NASCAR is a popular spectator sport, particularly among women who account for 40 percent of its audience. It is also the second most watched sport on television after the National Football League (NFL).

The sponsors of this sport have been known to pump almost three billion dollars into the races where the drivers can earn as much as 30 million dollars per season. 

One of the race’s most iconic cars was the Dodge Charger Daytona, which had a long nose and a huge rear wing, giving it the aerodynamic advantage to dominate 1970 stock car racing season. It was also the first car to travel more than 200 mph in a NASCAR race, winning many of the competitions. It was later banned due to the alarmingly high speeds at which it traveled.

How much do you know about NASCAR? Would you be able to identify some of the most iconic cars if given an image of it? The only way to find out is to take this quiz!
