Dirt track racing is a type of auto racing performed on clay or dirt surfaced oval tracks. It started in the United States before World War I and became widespread during the 1920s and 1930s. Two different types of race cars dominated—open wheel racers in the Northeast and West and stock cars in the South. While open wheel race cars are purpose-built racing vehicles, stock cars (also known as fendered cars) can be either purpose-built race cars or street vehicles that have been modified to varying degrees. Dirt track racing is the single most common form of auto racing in the United States. There are hundreds of local and regional racetracks throughout the nation; some estimates range as high as 1500. The sport is also popular in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
