Week Of Races Showcases NASCAR's Growing Global Presence
NASCAR this week is "staging nine races in seven series in four countries on two continents." The “super week” began June 7 with a race in England and concludes with Sunday's Sprint Cup Series Quicken Loans 400 in Michigan. The sanctioning body "has spun off series in Canada and Mexico, plus developed the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series with stops in England, France, Italy, Spain and Germany." NASCAR COO Brent Dewar: "NASCAR has a big global presence, and I think that's surprising to a lot of folks" (NEWS-JOURNALONLINE.com, 6/13).
