Nascar is the up and coming sport in America. It has supasses Hockey as the number 4 sport on the national scene. It is quickly approaching the popularity level of The National Basketball Association if not already surpassing it in some arenas. The NASCAR fan base is a rabid consumer group that is courted every race Sunday by no less than 43 primary sponsors.

These fans are loyal to their favorite drivers primary sponsor. Rarely will you find a Tony Stewart fan in a Lowe's Michael Orozco USA Jersey , likewise you won't find a Jimmie Johnson fan browsing the local Home Depot. So where did this rabid fan base originate.

Back on December 14, 1947, Bill France and several members from different organizations decided during meetings to officially form the NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing). This decision was cemented corporately on February 21 Michael Bradley USA Jersey , 1948. The Association was going to stage races for the public. During the first years 8 races were ran to determine a NASCAR champion. All the while the fan base was growing.

Unlike CART and other racing forms the premise for NASCAR was a run what you could buy at the dealership mentality. During the early years the fans could purchase the cars that they saw running on the tracks. With little to no modication these cars could be lined up on the local streets and raced. With great regularity this occurred. As the fans saw the races and developed an identity with the cars on the track they became avid consumers of the drivers products. The drivers were the ultimate spokesmen of the cars reputation. If they could wind with them on the track then clearly they were worth driving on the streets.

As time proceeded safety modifications led to speed modifications and the executives at NASCAR relaxed the run what you bought mentality and the cars drifted from the original designs of the manufacturers. Roll cages were added necessitating the advent of tubular frames for the cars. The engines were removed from the cars and heavily modified. The suspension was changed to accommodate the variation in frame design. All the while NASCAR maintained an external body design that the racing fan could identify with in their driveway. This identification bread over to the products that the drivers were advertising on their cars.

The greatest link to advertising in the early years of NASCAR was STPDodge and Richard Petty. This link is so strong that even today when you think of NASCAR racing the tall black haired gentlemen with the blue and red car comes to mind quickly. Legions of fans would drive their Dodge cars to the track placing STP products into their cars because that was what Richard would do.

This Marketing effort has been carried over as NASCAR has expanded from its original fanbase of southern towns to locales elsewhere. Recent track additions have included New Hampshire, Phoenix, California. All of these speedways are critical to the expanding NASCAR juggernaut. But that write-up is going to be saved for another article.

Age appears to be no barrier for Venus Williams.

The 36-year-old Williams beat No. 24-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-4 Matt Miazga USA Jersey , 7-6 (3) on Tuesday, becoming the oldest player to reach the Australian Open women's semifinals in the Open era.

Her 50th career win at Melbourne Park earned her a spot in the last four for the first time in 14 years.

"It's wonderful to start the year out with this appearance," said Williams Matt Hedges USA Jersey , who hadn't reached the semifinals here since 2003, the year she lost the final to her sister, Serena. "I want to go further. I'm not happy just with this. But I'm so happy to be in the position to like go further."

She will next play either French Open champion Garbine Muguruza or CoCo Vandeweghe Matt Besler USA Jersey , who are both in the Australian Open quarterfinals for the first time.

"Whoever wins, I'm just so excited that I have an opportunity to play again," Williams said. "That's all I'm focused on."

Williams dropped four service games against Pavlyuchenkova Lee Nguyen USA Jersey , but she responded each time by breaking back. In the tiebreaker, she trailed 3-1 before winning the last six points — clinching the match on Pavlyuchenkova's double-fault.

The seven-time major winner has advanced through the tournament without dropping a set, recovering from a right elbow injury that forced her to withdraw from a warmup tournament in New Zealand.

Now she is into semifinals for the second time in three majors — after a six-year absence from the last four — and for the 21st time overall.

With her run to the Wimbledon semifinals last year Landon Donovan USA Jersey , Williams became the oldest woman since Martina Navratilova in 1994 to advance so far at a major. Navratilova was 37, years 258 days at the end of Wimbledon that year.

The record belongs to Billie Jean King, who was 39 years Kyle Beckerman USA Jersey , 223 days when she reached the Wimbledon semifinals in 1983.
