Eat your heart out, NASCAR fans.

The legendary American racing series made a massive announcement on Thursday morning when it revealed “NASCAR Classics“, an enormous new online archive of over 1,000 races.

But that’s just the beginning. The new archive is entirely free and features incredible features such as the ability to filter races by track, era, or a keyword search.

Additionally, each race contains timestamps which allow viewers to jump to key points in the race. The site was an absolutely massive undertaking that is everything a diehard NASCAR fan could’ve asked for.

Twitter user @BaguetteBaker actually revealed the news on Tuesday night, prior to NASCAR’s official announcement.

But it appeared at that time that the site was unable to handle the massive demands on its servers. That seems to have since been worked out.

NASCAR’s Top 75 Greatest Races Highlight New Archive

“Anchoring the extensive archive is a new anniversary capsule: NASCAR‘s Top 75 Greatest Races. The unranked collection, selected by the sanctioning body, showcases some of the most exciting on-track action, important milestones and enduring memories throughout NASCAR‘s first 75 years, bookended by 1951‘s Motor City 250 in Michigan and Ross Chastain‘s “Hail Melon” move at Martinsville in October of 2022, NASCAR said in a press release.

Fans can relive incredible moments, like Kevin Harvick’s emotional first win in place of Dale Earnhardt in 2001 at Atlanta.

There’s also the iconic “pass in the grass” from Earnhardt to win the 1987 All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

And who could forget NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon winning the first ever Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“NASCAR Classics is a significant addition to our digital content offerings that for the first time ever gives fans around the world free, uninterrupted access to enjoy decades of past NASCAR Cup Series action whenever and wherever they‘d like,” said Tim Clark, senior vice president and chief digital officer at NASCAR.

Additionally, current races will continue to be added to the archive within weeks of their completion.
