First ever Nascar winner Although he only competed in three seasons of NASCAR Stock Car Racing, Robert “Red” Byron holds two records that will never be beaten. He was the true first NASCAR winner winning both the first ever sanctioned NASCAR race on February 15th 1948 at Daytona Beach as well as the first stock car “National Championship” title.

They actually had the presense of mind to photograph it, I actually thought NASCAR started on a whim of a couple of moonshiners going at it!

Keep in mind that this was the first sanctioned event for Nascar. The moonshine runners did their racing on the side which eventually led to this.
