Drivers would modify their cars to make them quick and nimble, maximizing speed as well as space to carry their precious cargo.

The sport of “runnin’ shine” eventually evolved and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) was officially founded in 1948 by Bill France, Sr. Today the sport is second to the NFL among professional sports franchises when it comes to television ratings in the United States.
