Stock Car Brasil (also known as Campeonato Brasileiro de Stock Car) is a stock car auto racing series held in Brazilmarker, its first season was in 1979, it's considered the major Brazilian motorsports series. The cars are similar to the ones in NASCAR, although there are no oval tracks.

The series consists in 4 competitions, the main Stock Car V8 (called Copa NEXTEL), the second level Stock Car Light (called Copa Vicar), the third Stock Jr, and the Pickup Racing (using pickup trucks). The competing marques (as of 2009) are Chevrolet and Peugeot.


The first race was held on April 22 1979 at the Autódromo de Tarumã in Rio Grande do Sul.

Chevrolet was the only manufacturer in competition until 2005, when Mitsubishi entered its Lancer. In 2006 Volkswagen entered its Bora and 2007, the fourth competitor, Peugeot, entered its 307. However, all cars use common chassis and engines, both supplied by ZF Racing. The tyre supplier was Pirelli from 1979 until 2007. Goodyear has now replaced Pirelli for the 2008 season.

Besides the main Stock Car V8 series, the event also has two junior leagues, the Stock Car Light (the Vicar Cup), and Stock Junior (since 2006) series. As for the spec of the Stock Car Light, the engine is suppressed compared with the V8 series though other spec is basically the same as the V8 series and the external is only Chevrolet Astra Hatchback. Stock Junior uses small race cars that combine a Yamaha motorcycle engine with the JL Racing chassis.
