The NASCAR Manufacturers' Championship is awarded by NASCAR to the most successful manufacturer over a season, as determined by a points system based on race results. The Constructors' Championship was first awarded in 1952, to Hudson.

Different car make/engine combinations are considered to be different manufacturers for the purposes of the Championship. Manufacturers' Championship points are calculated by adding points scored in each race by the highest finishing driver for that manufacturer. The winning manufacturer earns nine points, while the second highest finishing manufacturer earns six points. The third highest maunfacturer earns four points, one ahead of the fourth highest.[1]

In the 57 seasons the Championship has been awarded, only eight different manufacturers have won it. Chevrolet has been the most successful, with 38 titles, including twelve consecutive from 2003 to 2014.
