National Corvette Museum Showcases History of NASCAR with New Exhibit “From Moonshine to Finish Line”

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.

Her father, Herbert John Allingham was editor of the Christian Globe and the New London Journal (for which Margery later wrote articles and Secton Blake stories). Her mother, Emily Jane Allingham, was also a contributor of stories to women’s magazines.
Margery’s aunt, Maud Hughes, ran a magazine where Margery published her first story when she was eight years old.
The family moved to the village of Layer Breton when Margery was a baby. She went to school there but returned to London in 1920 where she attended Regent Street Polytechnic. Studying drama and speech-training, Margery was able to cure a stammer she had suffered throughout her childhood.
