During the days of prohibition a sport was born by speeding alcohol smugglers, who altered their cars in order to escape police. When prohibition was overturned, there was still a subculture of altering and racing cars, this would become NASCAR.
Since those humble days, NASCAR has grown to become one of the most popular sports in the United States. A particular section is Stock car racing, which brings us to the upcoming 2013 Sprint Cup race series.
This year Ford will be racing a Ford Fusion, against Charger, Chevrolet SS and a Toyota Camry. Penske Racing has switched its manufacturer from Dodge to Ford.
Suffering from a slowdown in fan, NASCAR is rumored to have plans to use the Sprint series as a vehicle to attract new fans and a new generation to the sport. This year, more videos and a larger online presence are expected to help bring in the internet generation.
The race schedule will be held on as follows, be sure to watch, and be sure to come back to the Waldorf Ford blog for more information and future updates.
