NASCAR

The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) was founded by William HG France[?] in 1948[?]. Officially incorporated on February 21, its purpose was to organize and promote the sport of stock car racing on sanctioned high-speed oval circuits and a few road courses.

The closest European equivalent is Touring car racing, although the European circuits are not simple ovals.
