The 2013 Daytona 500 will go down as one of the most important in NASCAR history thanks to the introduction of the Gen-6 car.

In the 67 years since NASCAR ran its first race, the sport has undergone innumerable changes. Some of them were gradual. Others were sudden.

We can trace many of the changes to specific races: ones that made a driver's career, ones that ended a driver's life and ones that prompted changes to the cars, to the tracks and to the sport itself. 

This list, by no means complete, highlights those races that changed NASCAR for the better and for the worse.

The 50 races listed here help us understand the sport's history, how it evolved over the decades and how it became the sport it is today.
