I still don't get what "Series" is like Busch and Nextel cup series.

there are three series of races in nascar;

the sprint cup series

the nationwide series

and the camping world truck series

each has their own rules, and their own race schedule. in order to win a championship in one or more of the nascar classes, you have to run a series of races in the class you want to win the championship in. for instance if you want to win the sprint cup drivers championship, you have to compete in the sprint cup series of races.

It can get a little confusing considering some of the "series" have changed names over the years, e.g. Sprint now was Winston Cup, Nationwide was Busch, Camping World Trucks was Craftsman Trucks, etc.

As already mentioned there are different rules for each series, related to engine specs, wheelbase, etc.

NASCAR also has Camping World East and West Series and Whelen Modifieds. Some small local tracks may be NASCAR sanctioned or endorsed, whatever you want to call it, like Kalamazoo Speedway where the rules regarding Whelen Modifieds are stricter in regards to body templates, in other words you can't just run any modified there.

Don't forget before it was Bush it was Grand National and it became Grand National when Winston Cup took over the Grand National series that is now Sprint Cup. Confusing Isn't it.

When you visit the NASCAR website, that's about all you'll see unless you know where to look. Here are links to some of NASCAR's less publicized series:

Pro Series West and East:
NASCAR Home Tracks
NASCAR Home Tracks

Whelen Modifieds:
NASCAR Home Tracks
NASCAR Home Tracks

Canadian Tire Series:
NASCAR Home Tracks


These series and more (local tracks, Mexico series, etc.) can be found at this site:

It's not a precise analogy, but think of the series like leagues in baseball: Sprint Cup is the majors, Busch Series is AAA, Camping World series is AA, etc.
