The 70s produced tons of the best driving songs. Also, any song from Judas Priest prior to the album Turbo (though a couple songs off Turbo could be included) basically qualifies, especially from the late 70s. I'll limit myself, I could list a couple of days worth of songs. A fast, steady beat with a catchy chorus makes the ultimate driving song for me, which you can see in all these examples. All are from my old playlist from Forza 3.

Surprised this wasn't posted yet.

On a more serious note, how about some Lynyrd Skynyrd or Foreigner.

I don't get it, my knowledge of Nascar is very limited, F1's more my thing. What happened at the Nascar Thunder 2003?.

This song is pretty good if you can tolerate country music. (Just trust me.) And you can buy it on Amazon MP3 if you want to!

Can't stress enough that Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal usually have the perfect driving beat.

This song was featured in a Top Gear review. Really dig it:
