The 1949 NASCAR Strictly Stock season was the brainstorm of NASCAR founder Bill France, who wanted to have a race filled with new, postwar automobiles. After the popularity of the first Strictly Stock race at Charlotte Speedway, France planned seven more races for the season. In the chart below, you will find the results for all eight of the races that comprised the 1949 NASCAR Strictly Stock season.
After the close of the 1949 NASCAR Strictly Stock season,
independent promoter Sam Nunis staged a late-model
race at Atlanta's Lakewood Speedway. A huge crowd
of 33,452 attended the event. See more pictures of NASCAR.
