, abbreviated to National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing NASCAR, is currently referred as the largest sanctioning body of stock car racing in the United States. The 68th season has concluded, with Jimmie Johnson, Daniel Suárez, and Johnny Sauter crowned with the drivers' national championships. The three largest racing series sanctioned by NASCAR are the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the Xfinity Series and the Camping World Truck Series. The NASCAR season consists of a series of races held on purpose-built race tracks. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual NASCAR Championships for each series, one for the drivers, and one for the manufacturers. NASCAR cars race at high speeds in excess of 200 mph (320 km/h). The cars are capable of pulling in excess of five G-forces in some curves. Charlotte, North Carolina is NASCAR's traditional center, where most of the teams are based. However, the sport's scope has expanded significantly in recent years with races being held all over North America.
(formally the 2013 Mudsummer Classic CarCash Mudsummer Classic presented by CNBC Prime's ) was a The Profit NASCAR Camping World Truck Series stock car race held on July 24, 2013 at Eldora Speedway in New Weston, Ohio. The race was the first dirt track race held by a NASCAR national touring series ( Cup, Xfinity, Trucks) since 1970. Contested over 150 laps, the race was the tenth of the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. Ken Schrader of self-owned Ken Schrader Racing won the pole position, and became the oldest pole sitter in NASCAR history at 58 years of age. Austin Dillon of Richard Childress Racing won the race, while Kyle Larson and Ryan Newman finished second and third, respectively. The qualifying procedure was unique for the race; drivers' qualifying times set the starting grids for five heat races to determine the feature race's starting lineup, while the top five of a last chance qualifier (LCQ) advance to the feature. Schrader, Jared Landers, Timothy Peters, Kenny Wallace and Jeb Burton won the heat races, while Brennan Newberry won the LCQ. The feature's format was also distinctive compared to other NASCAR events, as it was divided into three segments, lasting 60, 50, and 40 laps. In the feature, Larson took the lead from Peters on lap 39, and later battled with Dillon for the win, and Dillon claimed the victory after he retained the lead on the green–white–checker finish for his fifth career Truck Series win.
