Overview

Since the 1950s, NASCAR racing has experienced unrivaled growth. While the sport no longer has drivers fine-tuning their cars in back-lot garages, it still maintains a strong aura of the "American Everyman." As the number of races and teams increase, so too does the NASCAR sub-culture-"Winnebago Woodstocks" encircle each event, fans follow the fierce competition in the pits, and top drivers have achieved star status. For many Americans, NASCAR has become a lifestyle, informing their clothing, food, and travel habits. Speedway U.S.A. captures this world in all its startling colour and smoldering rubber.

Dan Hamilton, a well-known sports photojournalist, covers NASCAR for Racing Milestones and Insider Racing News.
