NASCAR teams fight for better safety and more money

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Since its first race in 1949, NASCAR has managed the highest motorsports sequence within the United States with an iron fist. Those who dared to problem NASCAR management had been nearly by no means a success.

An try at motive force unionization failed in 1961 when organizers Curtis Turner and Tim Flock had been banned through NASCAR. The most effective drivers’ strike in NASCAR historical past failed when the Professional Drivers Association boycotted the inaugural race at Talladega Superspeedway and the inventory automotive sequence merely introduced in substitute drivers.

NASCAR has at all times been firmly in rate, its punishments doled out every now and then via unannounced fines, brazenly intense inspections and in different ways to make lifestyles tricky for rabble rousers within the storage.
