About Winston Cups

This stock car racing series was founded in 1949 as Strictly Stock, and then it was called the Winston Cup from 1971 to 2003. Today, it is called the Sprint Cup after its current sponsor. The series had 36 races, and the Winston Cup champion was determined through a points system. The Daytona 500 is the most popular race, and the cars can reach speeds of over 200 miles per hour on an oval track. NASCAR Winston Cup championship collectibles like hats, model cars, and banners are very popular. Any merchandise with famous names like Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt, Bobby Allison, or Richard Petty is likely to appreciate in value. Many items are still inexpensive, however, and fans like to wear and use them in addition to collecting them. You can find a large variety of Winston Cup merchandise for you and your fellow fans through the reliable sellers on eBay.
