Auto racing began as soon as the second automobile was built and has evolved into an international sensation that spans various styles of cars. The most popular forms of motorsports in the United States are sanctioned by NASCAR, IndyCar and NHRA. Smaller levels of American motorsports take place on dirt tracks around the country, with events put on by the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, USAC and various late-model organizations. Many international forms of motorsports visit the United States, such as Formula 1.

The most popular venues for racing events in the United States include the Daytona International Speedway, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Circuit of the Americas and Talladega Superspeedway. IndyCar racing is the oldest form of motorsports in North America, tracing its lineage to the first National Championship in 1905, held under AAA sanctioning. The Indianapolis 500 is the oldest continuously-running race in the world with more than 100 events since 1911. The Indy 500 is also part of the unofficial Triple Crown of Motorsport, alongside the 24 Hour of Le Mans and the Monaco Grand Prix.

NASCAR was founded in 1948 as a stock-car racing series primarily based in the southern part of the United States. NASCAR underwent tremendous growth throughout the 1980s and 1990s, with a nationwide expansion and featuring drivers like Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon. It became the most popular form of motorsport in the country. There are now three national touring divisions of NASCAR. The Cup Series is the top level of NASCAR with the Xfinity Series and Gander Outdoors Truck Series acting as support classes during race weekends.
