NASCAR Nationwide Series Live Nascar Racing!2013 NASCAR Nationwide Practice From Phoenix International Raceway in Arizona. Date: Friday, March Time: 23 GMT
The 2013 de NASCAR Nationwide Series will be aired live on Motors TV! Nationwide is the ideal stage for up-and-coming stock car drivers to cut their teeth and gain exposure in front of the Sprint Cup decision makers, often forming part of a triple header of oval track competition when it joins the Cup and Camping World Truck series weekender.
Nationwide's origins date back to the 1950s, when it was a regional series for older model cars. The championship we know today was created in 1982 as the Budweiser Late Model Sportsman Series, and in that season the title was won by the legendary Dale Earnhardt. The series was now well on its way with the cars raced only slightly older than what was being campaigned in the top-tier Winston Cup. Then as now, the series was a showcase for new drivers, but it also represented a way for established names to gain more track time and bring new sponsors into the sport
The series' schedule is nearly identical to that of the Sprint Cup, and some rounds see a clutch of top division drivers competing in the Saturday races. However this created controversy, with many first-line drivers stealing the thunder of the newcomers, who subsequently found it hard to make a name for themselves. For 2011 NASCAR ruled that drivers can no longer compete for the title in both series and would have to declare their intentions before the start of the season.
Four constructors participate in the Nationwide Series: Chrysler (with the Dodge Charger and Challenger), Ford (Fusion and Mustang), Chevrolet (Monte-Carlo SS and Impala) and Toyota (Camry). Since 2011 the series has featured a version of the "Car of Tomorrow".
