CASCAR Super Series

The CASCAR Super Series was Canada's premier stock car touring division. It was sanctioned by CASCAR. The series ended after the 2006 season after NASCAR purchased CASCAR, and NASCAR used it as the basis for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.

General Tire served as the series' title sponsor from 1988 to 1990, followed by Budweiser from 1993 to 1993. Castrol held the naming rights from 1994 to the final season in 2006.

A western counterpart called the CASCAR West Super Series began racing in 1992, replacing CASCAR's Hobby Stock division.[1] In addition to being its own championship, the West Super Series conducted combination races with the national series.[2]
