The American Speed Association (ASA) is a sanctioning body of motorsports in the United States formed in 1968. The Association was based in Pendleton, Indiana and currently is headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida. ASA was most famous for a national touring series which began in 1973 but was discontinued in 2004 due to financial difficulties. In 2005, ASA became one of the top short track sanctioning bodies in the United States under the leadership of Dennis Huth. Today, ASA sanctions a variety of asphalt and dirt tracks in their ASA Member Track program along with a variety of racing series in the United States and Canada.
The cars from the ASA National tour are also raced in England in what is now known as the Stock Car Speed Association (formally ASCAR).

—Thomas Jefferson (17431826)
“Profound as race prejudice is against the Negro American, it is not practically as far- reaching as the prejudice against women. For stripping away the sentimentality which makes Mothers Day and Best American Mother Contests, the truth is that women suffer all the effects of a minority.”
—Pearl S. Buck (18921973)
“No speed of wind or water rushing by
But you have speed far greater.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
