NASCAR DaytonaNASCAR (the acronym stands for the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing) is one of America's favourite sports. There's just something about the adrenaline and the sound of engines running that excites many Americans.

The skill of the driver and the performance of the machine working together to cross a finish line in the lead is what attracts all motor racing fans.

There’s a long history in America of car companies and the odd foreign one, refining their abilities to conquer NASCAR glory which has been tied to the sport since the beginning, but the Chevrolet stands out as the most successful.

The Chevy has won the most NASCAR races and championships than any other, establishing itself as the most successful in NASCAR history.

Dale EarnhartOne main reason why Chevy has dominated for so long, first and foremost is the driver. Some of the most skilled and famous NASCAR drivers ever have driven Chevys.

From the legendary Dale Earnhart to his son Dale Earnhart Jr, the brand has been synonymous with quality drivers. In reality there's not much difference between a Chevy or a Ford, so at the end of the day it all comes down to the person behind the wheel. However, Chevy has an impressive win record making it rank at the top.
