In December of 1947, Bill France Sr., of Daytona Beach, Fla., organized a meeting at the Streamline Hotel across the street from the Atlantic Ocean to discuss the problems facing stock car racing.Thus, by the time that meeting at the Streamline Hotel was completed, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing was born.

Moonshiners desided that they wanted to race, and needed cars fast enough to outrun each other. Popular racers like Junior Johnson, and others were first.

Answer

NASCAR, formed around the period of illegal whiskey. Southerners would modify their cars to go extremely fast and escape the police. After a while, whiskey runners got together to race.

NASCAR stands for National Associatoin for Stock Car Auto Racing. A mechanic from Atlanta named Red Vogt came up with the acronim 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 runnin 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. Nascar was incorporated in 1949.

France sr. saw a need for a guaranteed gate, THUS the formation of Nascar.

Back in the 1940s, a man named Bill France wanted to create a racing league out of stock cars, and he did just that. Before that stock cars were used by the moonshiners on the run from the revenuers.

Well according to Nascar's 3D Imax movie from 2004, Nascar itself was created by 35 drivers, promoters and mechanics. These 35 racing enthusiasts spent 3 days at the Streamline hotel in Daytona Beach Florida creating Nascar.
