NASCAR lore has developed since the sport's founding in 1947. It includes NASCAR's colorful history of races along with the drivers and machines that have competed in them. Largely through the efforts of sportswriters and television, some events have become extremely famous, even legendary, in the history of the sport.

Some races are made famous by a dramatic last-lap battle for the win, while others are notable for special achievements, historical significance, or controversy.

Famous quotes containing the word lore:

    The lore of our fathers is a fabric of sentences.... It is a pale gray lore, black with fact and white with convention. But I have found no substantial reasons for concluding that there are any quite black threads in it, or any white ones.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
