U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for November 18

WASHINGTON, Nov. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18: FINAL 2012 NASCAR RACE

Profile America — November 18th.  The final race of the NASCAR season will be run today in Homestead, Florida.  The race will also be the last in this year's "Chase for the Cup," determining who will end up as the season champion.  The season began 35 races ago in February with the Daytona 500.  NASCAR was started in 1948 by Bill France, and the France family still owns and operates it as a business venture.  NASCAR is second only to the NFL in terms of sports franchise television ratings.  Across the U.S., there are 510 auto race tracks, which generate more than $2 billion in revenue each year.  You can find current data on the country's economy — on the go — by downloading the new "America's Economy" mobile application at www.census.gov/mobile.
