All forms of stock car racing from NASCAR Winston Cup and Busch Grand National to the grassroots racing of ARCA, IMCA and local racing are covered in historical detail. Also included are profiles of the famous drivers, team owners and crews that have become sports legends in the last fifty years.

Stock Cars! chronicles the development of racing technology, from engines and chassis to aerodynamics and safety. Revisited in rare photographic detail are the types of stock cars raced throughout the years, including breakthrough championship and historical models. Sections on tracks and statistics complete this historical overview which is fully illustrated with hundreds of rare, action-packed photographs.
