NASCAR Past Champions Edition

Description

The birth of NASCAR® can be traced to a meeting in Daytona Beach, FL, in December, 1947, when race driver and promoter Bill France Sr. called together a group of his peers to bring organization, control and respect to the burgeoning sport of stock car racing. The group formed the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing and incorporated the sanctioning body in February, 1948. NASCAR’s first race was a Modified event on the Daytona Beach course that was run on the beachfront and paved public highway. Now, 50 years later, you’re invited to Pass GO with the commemorative Monopoly Game: NASCAR Past Champions Limited Collector’s Edition. You’ll take risks, make deals and own it all building your very own NASCAR empire by rolling glittery gold dice… capturing milestone moments in NASCAR championship history… and acquiring red short tracks and gold superspeedways. Climb into the driver’s seat and speed around the customized game board showcasing NASCAR’s 22 racing legends and reigning champions, and relive the excitement of 50 years of NASCAR championships. These legendary drivers shaped the early contests and modern races that have propelled the sport into the classic American pastime and industry that it is today. On the game board, each champion is spotlighted along with the year (or years) each laid claim to the prestigious NASCAR championship… from Red Byron and Bill Rexford to Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty, the KING of NASCAR! The competition is cutthroat in the quest to own it all! How will you race around this unique Monopoly Game board? That’s where your toughest decision comes into play. You can pick the gold plated early race car… or choose the modern race car… be a vintage race car driver or a modern race car driver. There are four other gold plated tokens, including the NASCAR 50TH Anniversary logo. You’ll also receive customized playing cards and money, as well as a gold plated key chain all honoring the 50th Anniversary of NASCAR. The entire limited edition is housed in a handsome, gold foil case.
