Best Answer

The first ever NASCAR race broadcast on TV was on February 12, 1960. It was the Daytona 500 - 100 mile qualifying races, held at Daytona International Speedway. It was shown on CBS.

If you are referring to the first Live Race, then that would be the 1979 Daytona 500 won by Richard Petty. That one was shown on CBS as well.
