One reason F1 racing lacks the same popularity in America that it holds in the rest of the world is the presence of Indy car racing, a rival form of single-seat racing.
Indy cars were developed after the establishment in 1911 of the Indianapolis 500, perhaps the world’s best-known automobile race and one of the most popular American sports events.
Stock cars were similar to conventional cars when this type of racing began, just prior to World War II (1939-1945).

 Stock car racing Summary
Stock car racing is a form of automobile racing found mainly in the United States held largely on banked, asphalt or concrete oval tracks of between approximately 1/2 mile and 2.66 miles (about 0.8 to 4.2 kilometres) in length, but also raced occasionally on conventional racing circuits, also known as road courses.
Modern stock cars superficially resemble standard American family sedans, but are in fact purpose-built racing machines built to a strict set of regulations governing the car design ensuring that the chassis, suspension, engine, etc. are architecturally identical on all vehicles.
Whilst it is true that stock car racing is less technically sophisticated than many other forms of motorsport, the relative equality of the machinery makes the racing closer and results in more of a test of driver and pit crew ability than technological advancement.

 Halfbakery: fair stock car racing
The principle behind stock car racing is that it's not about the cars; it a test of pure driving (and mechanical) skill because all the cars are required to be the same.
Car races used to spur development of cars, because many of the different races required 'stock' cars, that one could buy from a dealership, and they had to make sure that normal people could drive them as well.

 NASCAR.com - Evolution of the stock car: Part I - February 6, 2002
The feeling was that race fans wouldn't stand for new cars being beat up on a race track while they were driving a rattletrap pre-war automobile, so "Modified" cars were the early staple of NASCAR racing.
Cars were typically either driven to the track or "flat-towed" behind pick-ups and family sedans.
Otherwise, racing stock cars in the early days of the sport was very much a seat of the pants endeavor.
