During last weeks’s blazing hot Pirelli World Challenge test day at Circuit of the Americas, one guest was a bit hairier than all the others, and much happier if you scratched behind his ears. Meet Turbo, a stray dog who the RealTime Acura team just couldn’t leave in the heat even though they, too, were far from…
Baja Beetles may be the best cars in the world. Lift them up high and they can conquer anything!
Stare in awe at pro drifter Daigo Saito somehow avoiding both the person in the middle of the parking lot as well as the Ferrari that’s oh-so-close to these donuts.
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is one of our favorite cars of all time for glorious cheap speed. You don’t need a pricey luxury sedan to go fast in a practical four-door. You need an Evo. Maybe not this 2006 Evo IX MR, though. It’s going to sell for six figures because it only has nine miles on its odometer.
Mercedes, one of the three marques that defines the current era of Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters alongside Audi and BMW, is quitting DTM in 2018 to join Formula E with a full-time works effort in the 2019-2020 season, reports Motorsport.com. Both of Mercedes’ DTM rivals are already involved in Formula E.
NASCAR’s most popular driver for 14 straight years and soon-to-be retiree Dale Earnhardt Jr. signed onto a multi-year deal to join NBC Sports’ NASCAR commentary team in 2018, the network announced today. Look, we all knew this was going to happen. The people need—no, demand!—more Earnhardt.
Everything’s bigger in Texas, including the Ford F-450 dually drift trucks. Wait, what?
Polish racing driver Robert Kubica still hasn’t given up his dream of returning to Formula One after a rally crash in February 2011 almost killed him. Now Renault is giving Kubica a chance to test a 2017 Formula One car in Hungary, Sky Sports reports. After this test, the team says they’ll know what it would take for…
The next-generation Ford Fiesta may not be coming to the United States because you didn’t buy enough of them. Apparently, the seventh generation Fiesta will be developed for Europe, the Middle East and some African countries where it’s actually selling well—but not us. Buy a Ford Fiesta ST while you still can?
NASCAR wants its races to end under full-speed green flag conditions so badly that they instituted the overtime system to restart races after
big wrecks. Tonight’s Brickyard 400 took two overtime attempts before it
was ended with a crash, but it sure took officials a while to throw the last yellow flag.
NASCAR’s top Cup Series was at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyard 400 today, where Kurt Busch’s race came to a halt with a hard hit with only 10 laps let in the race. Holy crap, the view from Busch’s helmet is intense.
Racing will make you hungry, but it’s definitely better to wait until you’re out of the car to assemble your lunch.
Sometimes even we learn something on this blog from our extremely knowledgeable commenters, and today was one of those days. Did you know that snorkels on trucks were originally designed to keep the intake free of dust, not water?
Texas’ Circuit of the Americas is painfully hot this time of year. Merely going outside for a while is enough to make you dehydrated. If you want to see how your race car performs in extreme conditions, this oppressive heat is perfect. Several Pirelli World Challenge teams were in Austin this week to do just that.
In case you ever doubted the greatness of these United States of America, all you need to do is look at one of America’s rowdiest creations holding its own on an autocross course. I’m talking, of course, about the noble Dodge Ram dually pickup truck.
If there’s one car that really, truly got me into cars, it has to be the Porsche 911. I have seen many very good Porsche 911s in my lifetime, but Leh Keen’s off-road-ready Safari 6 911 may just be the best 911 I’ve ever seen. Everything about this build is absolute perfection.
I know Australian Supercars haven’t always been V8 Supercars. I know. I know! But darn it if listening to the new twin-turbo V6 Holden Supercars engine leaves me with a big sad hole in my heart to the tune of some less impressive higher-pitched V6 noises.
Meet one of the most insane diesel truck builds we’ve ever seen: Old Smokey F1. In its tastefully patina’d 1949 Ford engine bay lies a beautifully built twin-turbo diesel engine good for 1,233 horsepower at the wheels and 2,000 ft-lbs of torque. Holy crap, that’s a lot of tire-killing insanity.
Ex-Vine star and sentient dab Jake Paul is, without a doubt, the worst person in the universe, regurgitating played out memes and destroying things in the name of “random.” Unfortunately, one of the victims on his tour of dumb was an E30-generation BMW 325i and we cannot in good faith let that slide.
