Established in 1981 by President Anthony Novotny, CASCAR boasted the highest level of stock car racing in Canada and sanctioned Canada’s only national stock car racing series, the CASCAR Super Series.
This also opened the way for NASCAR's purchase of CASCAR.
On December 7, 2015, it was announced that Pinty's Delicious Foods Inc. was the new sponsor of the series after Canadian Tire announced that they were not renewing their sponsorship on February 17.
Unlike NASCAR, which mandates the use of steel-bodied shells, CASCAR-approved cars consisted of fiberglass bodyshells covering custom-made tube-frame racing chassis.
CASCAR events were held on short track ovals, permanent road courses, temporary road courses and street courses.
