Before World War II, motor racing was a sponsored sport throughout the United States. It wasn't until the founding of NASCAR in 1948 by Bill France that a national organized auto racing league was available. NASCAR became the more important form of auto racing in the South, with its largest base found in North Carolina and Florida.
