The three largest racing series sanctioned by this company are the Sprint Cup Series, the Xfinity Series, and the Camping World Truck Series.

The phrase “Nice Car” stated in a redneck accent.
Normal White American Citizen (Pointing to a brand new BMW): Wow! That’s a nice car you’ve got there!
Redneck (Pointing to an old rusty pickup truck): Nope. That right there is a purty nascar.
