No.    The history of stock car racing might be a little less colorful, but the itch to race preceded Mr Fords cars and it would have evolved anyway.   Also, the 'moonshine running" that influenced early stock car racing was more about post-prohibition tax evasion.   If I was going to make the point I'd claim liquor taxes(not prohibition) were a greater influence.

One of our local talkers said this evening that if it wasn't for prohibition during the 1920's we wouldn't have NASCAR.  
OK, it isn't an earthshaking question, but does anyone agree?
