NASCAR stands for the National Stock Car Auto Racing Association. The organization itself is a conduit for many companies to market their products while giving fans of auto racing a thrilling experience. The roots of NASCAR go back to the very thing that spawned the American Revolution: a disdain for excessive taxation. Yes Mitch Morse Jersey , NASCAR roots actually begin around the year 1794 and at the heart of the Whiskey Rebellion.

The Whiskey Rebellion was spawned because the new United States Federal Government imposed a tax on farmers who distilled their extra grain so as to bring it to market as well. Back in those days, there were not sophisticated highways and rail systems to get grain to market and farmers did the best they could to deliver it. Any grain left over would be distilled into spirits rather than let it go bad. The spirits of course would be imported to the markets and sold in that form. It was this that Alexander Hamilton wanted to tax. Of course the farmers rebelled because this was part of their very livelihood.

Some farmers secretly distilled the spirits and transported the end product in secret and under cover of darkness to their end markets. Thus the seeds of NASCAR were planted although at this time there was no such thing as cars. Thus the spirit of NASCAR came to pass.

In the 1920s and early 1930s, the Federal government would again try to control the production and transportation of spirits through an amendment to the U.S. Constitution known as Prohibition. It was one thing that the farmers would manufacture the spirits in secret for personal use but that of course was unprofitable. So the bootlegger was born. Bootleggers were those who would run illegal spirits (also known as moonshine) to secret markets in high-speed cars under cover of darkness. The activity was characterized by Federal agents chasing and hunting them down. It was risky business and sometimes even mortal.

Bootlegging began to create competition among the drivers of the moonshine cars and it was sport to see who had the fastest car. Over time, they would even collectively get together and have races on Sunday afternoons. All the local people would come out and spend a Sunday afternoon watching the races and that night, the drivers would turn their sport into work and run the illegal moonshine to secret buyers.

In 1938, Daytona Beach Florida would become the place of the first NASCAR race. Daytona Beach was a good place for racing because the beach sands were firm and the beach area was wide. The prizes for the winners were simple and could be things like a case of motor oil, a bottle of spirits, or a box of cigars. The organizer and promoter of this event was a man named Bill France. Bill France would go on to build the organization we known as NASCAR today.

In the 1950s, the business model of NASCAR began to form and it continues today. Many promoters of products will pay drivers and car teams to carry their logo on their car and on driver suits. If the team is a winner it is a great position for a promoter to be in. Plus, many companies enjoy having the NASCAR logo associated with their businesses and products.

And for the fans of NASCAR, it is great fun and excitement.

Weddings these days are far from cheap. The average wedding in the U.S. is estimated to cost $20,000, and if you live near a major metropolitan area it can cost almost double that amount. In addition, couples are often foregoing traditional means of paying for their weddings (like asking parents for support) in order to prove that they can do it on their own.

With this in mind, several companies are springing up around the world that offer financing for weddings. There are special loans that can be taken out for weddings as well as the old stalwart, the credit card. All of these alternative finance options, however, have several disadvantages. To start with, many of them charge interest the moment you borrow the cash. Loans are generally lower interest than credit cards, but in either case, a couple must ask themselves if they really want to start out their married lives in debt. Believe me, money will come up enough in your marriage as a stress factor; you don't want to start out with this as the groundwork!

To prevent getting into debt for your wedding, here are some key tips that will help.

* Shop Around - Remember that shopping for your wedding services is the same as any other shopping trip; if you look hard enough, you are bound to get some good deals. Make sure that what you purchase fits into your budget. It can be very tempting to go out and take the first deal you are offered on the different services you will need for your wedding, but don't.

* Plan Ahead - Nothing is worse than waiting, but in the case of a wedding, time between the engagement and the wedding day is all time you can use to save money. A year is pretty good, but you should try for anywhere from a year to eighteen months. Anything longer will probably prove unbearable.

* Budget! - Make a budget right away, and stick to it. First, take a look at your monthly financial situation. Don't forget to include all of your regular expenses as well as money for emergencies. Multiply whatever is left over by however many months there are until your wedding. This is what you reasonably can expect to save. If it doesn't seem like enough, take another look at your expenditures and see if there are any areas where you can make some cuts. Common areas here are on gas and on luxury items like movies, cigarettes, and going out to eat.

One way a couple can save significant amounts of money is by scheduling their wedding outside of the busy season. The early months of summer means that weddings compete not only with other ceremonies but also with college, university, and high school graduations.
