WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressmen Garret Graves (Louisiana) and Jeff Jackson (North Carolina) introduced bipartisan legislation that will instruct the Department of the Treasury to mint a commemorative coin to honor NASCAR’s 75th Anniversary. NASCAR is one of the most watched sports in America.

“This coin will honor NASCAR’s contributions to our country’s sports heritage and support charitable causes to improve the lives of children in our racing communities. I’m proud to join Congressman Jeff Jackson on this bill and give NASCAR fans a unique opportunity to celebrate this historic milestone,” Graves said.

“NASCAR’s been fueling North Carolina’s culture and economy for the past 75 years. It’s a great time for racing in the state with NASCAR returning to North Wilkesboro, followed by the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. I’m happy to join Rep. Graves to introduce H.R. 2838 to celebrate 75 years of NASCAR racing,” Jackson said.

The U.S. Mint has stated that, since 1997, all commemorative coin programs have operated at no cost to taxpayers.
