It's an interesting moment every time I meet someone who recognizes me from Jalopnik. "Hey! You're Doug! From Jalopnik!" they always say. "The guy with the Penus and the CarMax Land Rover!" And then, in all their excitement to learn more about the industry, and all their eagerness to talk about cars, they invariably…
I saw a writer self-plagiarize earlier this year. I never called him out on it, because he wasn't a journalist and had never gone to journalism school,(that I'm aware of). He was like me, someone who had been picked up by a site to write, only he's a legit, paid writer with a wife and kids. Writing is his profession…
Upstate and Western New York's brandy and whiskey scene that you didn't even know about.
Playing around with Kinja. I'm starting the manual admission tag just to post things and thoughts I find interesting or amusing in a free form-ish style. I'm not worried about headlines, images, form, etc. Just tossing things out there. Feel free to add to it.
Oh for fuck's sake.
Why you do this?

Is there anything that's riskier than biting into a nut?
Jesus. Really Speed Twitter account?! This disrespectful shit? If Schumi has any awareness at all, it's to get better to see his wife and kids, not some effing soccer game.
Ralph Fucking Gilles for President.
This shit here is why we can't have nice things.
When you get a notification on a post you made 6 months ago, only to click and see the commenter called you an idiot. God DAMMIT.
Best Chase scene ever.
When you try to not get all judgmental about The Sport of Drifting.
This is better. I'm fine with lists, as long as they contain some wit and wisdom. Buzzfeed rarely does either, even in their most base posts. I get it. I'm all for cats, and rugby thighs, and red heads, but that just feels mind numbing to me. I want to feel something, good, bad, sad, or whatever, when I read a post,…
Outwardly, 'Road' is about two generations of the famous road racing family, the Dunlops. Starting with Joey and his younger brother Robert, then adding Robert's racing sons, William and Michael. The film quickly moves along to match the extreme euphoria and deepest depths of road racing itself. It's a warts and all…
After a tragic accident at this year's Northwest 200, Simon Andrews has passed away. I'm trying to find the words on why I was such a huge fan, or even how to describe him. We didn't lose a legend, or the best road racer, or someone who broke records. He came in 9th, or 7th, or 16th. He'd make it to the podium here…
After reading this exclusive on Reuters about the further legal issues of Scott Tucker, it's time to think about banning Scott from Sports Car racing permanently. While Mr.Tucker has not been convicted, his reasons for Level 5 leaving The Tudor Racing Series were detrimental to the organization. Anyone that's been…
Let's get down to brass tacks.
The big three have returned for another year of GT racing madness! The manufacturers have again brought out their big guns to fight for honor, glory, bragging rights and trophies.
