AUSCAR (Australian Stock Car Auto Racing) was an auto racing sanctioning body owned by Bob Jane, which ran American-style Superspeedway racing in Australia.

AUSCAR was also the name used for the racing category that raced alongside the Australian NASCAR stock car racing series. The cars were built on Australian Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon road car chassis. As a result, AUSCARs are right-hand-drive, and race clockwise at ovals, compared to the left-hand-drive anticlockwise NASCAR vehicles. AUSCARs were also restricted to running the 5.0 litre Holden V8 engine and the 5.0L Ford V8.

These engines developed less power than the larger and more highly developed engines used in NASCAR and as a result AUSCARs were slower, but not by much. This race is the inaugural AUSCAR 200 at Calder Park Thunderdome in 1988.
