50 funny NASCAR Cup memes in 2022 that you need to share with your friends
The National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing, Inc. is a privately held car racing organization and related activities. Founded by Bill Frans Sr. in 1947-1948 in the United States of America, and is still owned by the Frans family. The association holds a large number of different championships (series). The three largest NASCAR series are NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The series is also being held outside the United States - in Mexico and Canada.
NASCAR dates back to 1949, when Bill France Sr. decided to combine the semi-amateur production car races in the southeastern United States into one championship. No motorsport organization has undertaken to sanction this competition and France founded the sanctioning organization himself. Since 1949, NASCAR has held three championships - Strictly Stock (strictly serial), Modified (modified) and Convertible (open). Initially, Modified was a success, but gradually Strictly Stock came out on the first roles, about which it was said that the same cars participate in it as they drive on the roads, and anyone can take part.
High prizes attracted eminent pilots, low costs allowed newcomers to prove themselves. The good selection of tracks and the prudent policies of the Association have contributed to the rapid growth in popularity. In 1959, the huge Daytona International Speedway, a specially built for NASCAR racing, appeared, and the Daytona 500 race held there became the star of the championship.

Gradually, the championship moved away from its philosophy of participation of purely production cars - high speeds and asymmetric loads required modifications to improve safety. At first, even the riders cut a window in the bottom, through which the most loaded front right wheel could be seen, in order to call in on time to change tires. In 1962, the factory teams entered the championship, which had previously supported their brands behind the scenes, and the arms race and the growth of speeds began. Hiding behind the definition of "production car", the Big Three companies produced small batches (in 1970 a batch of at least 500 cars was needed to participate in races) of cars optimized for racing. In the early 70s, "air war" cars, such as the Plymouth Superbird, entered the track, but the Association took measures to prevent a further technology race and introduced special restrictions for such cars. The 1973 energy crisis that followed soon after forced the car companies to withdraw from the championship altogether.
In parallel with the technological competition, the companies tried to attract eminent racers to their side. Racers became real stars, but their attempts to create their own association of pilots to fight for safety were sharply suppressed by Bill France Sr. - the most active were excommunicated from the races, regardless of their names, including Richard Petty himself.
In 1981, the Association completely changed its technical policy, and now silhouette prototypes with a tubular frame and only superficially resembled serial cars came out at the start. Technical innovations were increasingly limited, and in order to equalize the participants and in matters of aerodynamics, the cars even lost their external resemblance to their road counterparts.
In 1979, NASCAR's Daytona 500 race was first shown live, and popularity began to skyrocket. In addition, the task was made easier by the fact that the main competitor in the American motorsport world - CART - has split since 1996. In 1996, the Daytona 500 ratings surpassed the Indy 500 ratings and NASCAR is now the second most popular competition in the United States, behind only the NFL, and the most popular NASCAR racer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., is also America's most popular athlete.
Stock cars bear the names of production cars, but they do not even look like them. The vehicles are based on a tubular steel frame. The factories (now Dodge, Ford, Chevrolet and Toyota) only supply the teams with the blocks of cylinders, and some other parts - everything else, including the frame and outer metal cladding, is built by the teams themselves.
All stock cars are equipped with V8s with a displacement of 5.87 liters, the configuration of which has not changed since the 60s of the last century - they use a cast iron cylinder block, a lower camshaft and carburetors. The gearbox has four gears, but on oval routes the gears need only be shifted when entering pit stops and when driving under a peyscar. In 2007, NASCAR's top division began the transition to Car of Tomorrow. In 2007, such machines were used only on short ovals (up to 1.33 miles), since 2008 CoTs have been used at all stages.
The engines on the Car of Tomorrow cars are made to an even tighter specification, with a fixed cylinder spacing, which makes them virtually the same. However, their recoil remains the same - a lower shaft petrol V8 with a volume of 5.87 liters and a capacity of about 770 hp. The body is taller, wider and longer (the base is 110 inches or 2794 mm), an adjustable splitter appeared in front (on "classic" cars, the front bumper should be strictly vertical), and a rear wing appeared instead of a huge spoiler.
This configuration gives participants a wider range of aerodynamic settings, and should compensate for the abandonment of "specialized" cars (now teams are building three types of cars: for fast tracks, slow and European type tracks). In addition, according to the organizers' calculations, the new body shape will increase the number of overtaking in races. Even more attention has been paid to safety, energy-absorbing zones have been increased, and the rider sits even closer to the center. With the introduction of the COT in full in 2008, more opponents of the COT have emerged. Of course, Michael McDowell's crash in Texas on 04/06/08 cleared up any questions about whether the safety level of a rider in the COT had changed. But, at the same time, tire problems on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which led to the association's decision to throw the technical yellow flag every 15-18 laps, are related precisely to the specifics of the COT design. Also, COT was unable to provide one of their main tasks - reducing costs due to the versatility of the chassis.
11.Is something happened
In 2010, NASCAR began to gradually improve the aesthetic appearance of the COT. Starting with the spring round in Martinsville, they began to use a standard spoiler instead of a wing. In 2011, the appearance of the front has changed. For 2013, the front end will undergo even more changes, which will give an individual look for each car brand.
The current NASCAR eyewear system has been operating since 1975 with minor changes. The winner receives 185 points, 175 points are given for the second place, then, from the second to the sixth - in increments of 5 points, from the seventh to the 11th - in increments of 4 points, and from 12th place - in increments of 3 points, to the last, 43rd place, for which 35 points are given. However, in total, 54 participants receive points in the classification of car owners - 11 who did not start, but those who took places from 44th to 54th in qualification receive from 32 to 3 points. In addition, an additional 5 points are given to everyone who was able to promote at least one lap, as well as 5 points to the one who has won the most.
In 2004, the Cup introduced a play-off system - Chasing the Cup. For ten races before the end of the season (i.e. after 26 stages), the top ten drivers of the current moment and the drivers who are no more than 400 points behind the leader of the championship receive points in return for their previous results according to the following system: the leader of the championship receives 5050 points, the next one is 5045 and so on. In the remaining 10 races, all drivers still receive points, but only the first ten drivers can compete for the title.
Since 2007, the 400 points rule has been abolished, and the number of pilots participating in the fight for victory has been increased to 12. All participants in the Chase for the Cup receive 5000 points instead of all previously earned, and an additional 10 points for each victory won in the previous part of the season.
16.I already told you
On January 26, 2011, an event occurred in the history of NASCAR that will undoubtedly affect its future. The racing series management has published a new scoring system designed to make it more understandable for the general viewer, as well as to add an element of unpredictability to the fight for the title in 2011.
Many doubts were expressed about the new points system (much simpler than the previous one, which, as the race management considered, was too difficult to remember and calculate the points). Now the difference in points between the positions at the finish line from 43rd to 2nd place will be only one point. That is, the rider who took the last, 43rd place will receive 1 point, the one who took 42nd place - one point more, that is, 2 points, 41st - 3 points, 40th - 4 points, and so on. The rider who takes 2nd place receives, respectively, 42 points. And only the difference between the second and the first place will be 4 points and, thus, the winner of the race will receive 46 points. The new system retains additional bonuses: for leading at least one lap of the race - 1 point, for leading during most laps in the race - 1 point.
The Chase for the Cup system has also undergone changes: the 12 best riders in the regular part of the championship will continue to compete for the title of champion, but now the last 2 places in the Chase will be given to the riders who took places from 11th to 20th with the highest in the final qualification the number of victories. Thus, the last two places in the Pursuit theoretically provide a chance of getting into the finals for drivers with a more aggressive fighting style, who usually either come first or drop out of the race during the struggle for the lead.
All 12 participants in the Chase receive 2000 points, in addition, those of them who made it to the Chase from the top ten receive 3 points for each victory during the season. Those who passed into the Chase from the second ten do not receive bonus points for victories during the previous part of the season. As before, according to the results of the Chase, the driver who has the maximum number of points after the end of the tenth race gets the Cup.

This world's largest cycling race is a national landmark that France cherishes almost as much as the Eiffel Tower and 360 cheeses! Tour de France is held annually in July and passes through the most picturesque places of the French metropolis. We will tell you about it.
In fact, for the fans and the athletes themselves, the Tour de France does not begin on the day the race starts, but at least a year in advance, with the presentation of the route. The route of the 21st stage is different every year, but the organizers of the Tour de France always give riders of various specializations a chance to prove themselves: sprinters, station wagons capable of climbing small mountains, mountaineers, individual time trial specialists. The Tour de France is a Grand Tour, a race that lasts three weeks.
There are three Grand Tours in total: the first is the Italian Grand Tour - the Giro d'Italia, then it's time for the French - Tour de France, and finally, the final three-week race, which is held in Spain - the Vuelta. But the Tour de France is the oldest and most prestigious of all three Grand Tours, traditionally starting in early July. During the 23 days of the competition, riders cover more than 3,000 kilometers. The route of the Tour can be laid clockwise or counterclockwise through the territory of France. Often, not only the Grand depart goes beyond the borders of the Tour's home country, but some stages go beyond the borders of France. So, at the mountain stage, the peloton can go to Andorra or Italy, and then return to France again.

1.Doing it right?
3.Lost a bit of time
Usually, the cities that host the start and finish of the stage are famous for their rich history, sights, because the Tour is broadcast by television companies around the world, the spectator audience of the race is huge, which means that the French regions get the opportunity to attract tourists, advertise architectural monuments and natural beauties . Thus, the Tour de France is also an exciting journey through France, which opens up new interesting routes and corners of the country for cycling fans. The race is usually attended by 22 teams, each of which has 9 cyclists. The most powerful cyclists in the world set the Tour de France as their goal and prepare for it in advance.
For its more than a century of existence, the cycling race has seen the country and reeled up the mileage. Currently, the annual route is 3,500 kilometers and is covered during the first three weeks of July by 22 teams of 8 cyclists. On the most beautiful roads in France, 176 participants compete for 23 days, the cycling race consists of 21 stages. The route, which passes through more than a third of the French departments, changes every year.
The first Tour de France took place in 1903. Then there were only six stages, but what! Paris-Lyon, Lyon-Marseille, Marseille-Toulouse, Toulouse-Bordeaux, Bordeaux-Nantes and Nantes-Paris - this was the program, and 60 cyclists came to the start. In those days, the participants in the race pedaled for 18 hours in a row (day and night) and rode on highways and dirt roads. By the finals, they covered 2,300 kilometers. What a load on the legs!
4.Not even once
Mountain trials are the most controversial and best known. It must be seen: cyclists climb the passes, having risen in the saddle, and descend from them at a speed of more than 100 km / h! The ascents of the Galibier and Tourmalet passes in the Pyrenees and the Alps became the legends of the Tour de France and gave the best cyclist a very elegant polka-dot jersey.
France leads the race in terms of national wins with 36 bike rides, followed by Belgium (18) and Spain (12). But Eddy Merckx remains the darling of the race with a record 111 days in the yellow jersey. This Belgian is a 5-time Grand Loop champion along with Jacques Anquetil, Bernard Hino and Miguel Indurain.
The yellow jersey is awarded to the leader in the overall standings (the time shown at each stage is summed up). This tradition began in 1919. It has nothing to do with the July sun or sunflower fields on the roadsides. Yellow color is the color of the pages of the newspaper "Auto" (L'Auto) - the founder and organizer of the first competitions.
In 2018, as in 2011, the race started from the island of Noirmoutier in the Vendée. On June 30, a group of participants set off for the continent along the Passage du Gois, a 4-kilometer underwater highway that is flooded by the sea at high tide. Woe to those who lag behind!
The Tour de France is the third most important sporting event in the world after the Olympic Games and the World Cup, and is covered by 600 media outlets and 2,000 journalists. The race is broadcast by 100 television channels in 130 countries and is watched by 3.5 billion viewers, the broadcast time is 6,300 hours. The numbers speak for themselves!
Every year the cycling race starts in a new place - in one of the cities of France or neighboring countries. But since 1975, the triumphant finish of the participants has always taken place on the Champs Elysees in Paris. For a swift final spurt, of course, you need the most beautiful avenue in the world!
If you shoot with a helicopter or drone, then from a height a group of participants in a cycling race resembles a long colored ribbon unwinding in the midst of the most beautiful French landscapes: from Normandy copses to Alpine peaks, from the coast of Brittany to the beaches of the Côte d'Azur. In 2017, the Col d'Izoard mountain pass in the Hautes-Alpes, which is 2361 m high, was chosen as the "most beautiful scenery of the Tour de France".
Another tradition of the race - the last, final stage takes place in Paris, its route is laid along one of the most famous and beautiful streets in the world - the Champs Elysees, which every year await a new winner of the Tour de France.

US Open Tennis Championships top 50 funny memes and jokes
In the United States, the Open United Tennis Championship is a tough tennis tournament. The tournament is the modern version of one of the world's oldest tennis championships, the US National Championship, which first played men's singles and men's doubles in 1881.
Since 1987, the US Open has been chronologically the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year. The other three, chronologically, are the Australian Open, the French Open, and Wimbledon. The US Open begins on the last Monday in August and runs for two weeks, with the average weekend coinciding with the US Labor Day holiday.
The tournament consists of five main championships: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles. The tournament also includes competitions for seniors, juniors and wheelchair users. Since 1978, the tournament has been played on acrylic hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Queens, New York. The US Open is organized and owned by the non-profit United States Tennis Association (USTA), and the US Open is chaired by Patrick Galbraith. Proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships and television contracts are used to develop tennis in the United States.

3.What tennis fans see
The US Open uses standard 7-point tiebreaks in every set of a singles match. For the other three Grand Slam tournaments, there are specific scoring methods for a match that scores 6–6 in the last possible set (third for women and fifth for men): in the French Open, the deciding set continues as long as the player leads the two matches , in Australia an extended tie-break is played to 10 points, while at Wimbledon a standard tie-break is only played if the score of the game reaches 12–12. As with the US Open, these tournaments use tiebreaks to decide other sets.
The tournament was first played in August 1881 on the grass courts at the Newport Casino in Newport, Rhode Island. That year, only clubs that were members of the United States National Tennis Association (USNLTA) were allowed. Richard Sears won the men's singles event at this tournament, which was the first of his seven consecutive singles titles.

From 1884 to 1911, the tournament used a challenge system whereby the defending champion automatically qualified for the next year's final, where he played as the winner of the all-comers' tournament.
In the early years of the U.S. National Championship, only men competed, and the tournament was known as the U.S. National Men's Singles Championship. In September 1887, six years after the men's nationals were first held, the Philadelphia Cricket Club hosted the first U.S. Women's National Singles Championship. The winner was 17-year-old Philadelphian Ellen Hansell. The same year, the men's doubles event was held at the Orange Lawn Tennis Club in South Orange, New Jersey.

7.See the difference
8.Tennis be like
Women's tournaments used the competitive system from 1888 to 1918, with the exception of 1917. From 1890 to 1906, sectional tournaments were held in the east and west of the country to determine the top two doubles teams, which competed in the playoffs for the right to compete with the defending champions in the qualifying round.
The 1888 and 1889 men's doubles competition was played at the Staten Island Cricket Club in Livingston, Staten Island, New York. In the 1893 championship, men's doubles was played at St. George's Cricket Club in Chicago.
In 1892, the U.S. Mixed Doubles Championship was introduced, and in 1899, the U.S. National Women's Doubles Championship.
In 1915, the national championship was moved to the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, Queens, New York. Efforts to move it to New York began as early as 1911 when a group of tennis players led by New Yorker Carl Behr began working on it.
In early 1915, a group of about 100 tennis players signed a petition to postpone the tournament. They argued that the majority of tennis clubs, players, and fans were located in the New York area, and therefore it would be beneficial for the development of the sport to host a national championship there. This opinion was opposed by another group of players, which included eight former national singles champions. This controversial issue was put to a vote at the USNLTA's annual meeting on February 5, 1915, with 128 votes in favor and 119 against. In August 1915 at the West Side Tennis Club, Forest Hills, New York City's first women's tournament was held at the Philadelphia Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia (the women's singles tournament was not rescheduled until 1921). From 1917 to 1933, the men's doubles competition was held at Longwood Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. In 1934 Longwood Cricket Club hosted doubles events for both men and women.

From 1921 to 1923 the men's singles tournament was played at the Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He returned to the West Side Tennis Club in 1924 after the completion of the 14,000 seat Forest Hills Stadium. Although it was already considered by many to be a major championship, the International Lawn Tennis Federation officially named it one of the world's biggest tournaments, having started in 1924.
The open era began in 1968 when professional tennis players were allowed to compete for the first time at a Grand Slam tournament held at the West Side Tennis Club. The previous US National Championship was limited to amateur players. With the exception of the mixed doubles, all events at the 1968 national tournament were open to professionals. That year, 96 men and 63 women entered the competition, with a total prize pool of US$100,000. In 1970, the US Open became the first Grand Slam tournament to use a tiebreak to determine a 6–6 set in games.
From 1970 to 1974, the US Open used a sudden death nine-point tiebreaker before moving into the International Tennis Federation (ITF) best-of-twelve points system. In 1973, the US Open became the first Grand Slam tournament in which men and women received equal prize money, with that year's singles champions, John Newcomb and Margaret Court, receiving US$25,000 each. In 1975, following complaints about the surface and its effect on ball bounce, the tournament was played on clay courts rather than grass, this was also an experiment to make it more "television friendly". The addition of floodlights allowed matches to be played at night.
