We’re riding along with Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin in the pace car this morning, so why not come along with us? Let’s take a quick lap of Sonoma Raceway, one of the few road courses on the NASCAR Sprint Cup calendar.
The poor little bunny—er, large jackrabbit—“came out of nowhere” and left a huge blood splatter all over the front end of Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race car in practice on Friday. While it wasn’t caught on the broadcast, Busch’s description of the events is pretty funny.
Earlier this month, Subaru driver Mark Higgins set a blazing average speed of 128.72 mph at one of the most treacherous race courses there is at the Isle of Man TT race. The record-shattering lap was fun enough to watch from outside of the car, but now there’s footage from inside—narrated by Higgins himself.
Tonight’s NASCAR truck race near St. Louis was already running late after a rain delay and several wrecks, but it was one with just seven laps remaining that brought Spencer Gallagher and John Wes Townley to fisticuffs. Rubbin’ (fists) is racin’!
This weekend is the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and there’s no shortage of cool stuff going on. One stunt featured a driver turning donuts in a legends car, but he didn’t leave it at that—the guy hopped out, grabbed an audience member’s cellphone while the car kept spinning and got right back in the car, filming it…
Something that’s apparently been on his bucket list since childhood, Jay Leno recently hopped into a 2,500-horsepower car that pops up two wheels for show. The problem was, the vehicle didn’t stay on two wheels for long—it went into an wild, unintended barrel roll instead.

Many of us spend hours, months and even years working on our cars to get them looking and working the way we want them to. But sometimes, the cars say no more.
Wisdom is a product of age and experience. When you get older, you tend to be better at judging something on its merits, rather than your emotional attachment to it. That’s why a while back, after losing money on cars that I initially intended to sell, I vowed never to invest my time, money, and sanity into a vehicle…
The shock! The horror! The surprise! Eh, this turning in both directions thing happens a couple times a year, when NASCAR visits the road courses of Watkins Glen and Sonoma Raceway. I’m here checking out the race, which rules, because road courses are always some of the most fun NASCAR races to watch.
Still reeling from the end of last week’s 24 Hours of Le Mans? Do you need another weekend of car stuff in your life to fill the void? Thankfully, it’s Goodwood to the rescue.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just posted a picture of his Fast 8 character’s vehicle: a Ram truck on treads with what looks like a weaponized farm implement hanging off the back. Looks like the studio released a few more vehicle shots from the Icelandic snow scene as well.

Keep Calm and Morgan Along
If you’re a Subaru enthusiast and you weren’t at Wicked Big Meet on June 12th, well, you missed a helluva show. With an attendance record of over 7,500 people, the event continues to be the largest Subaru gathering in the world.

A remarkable new image captured by a satellite in orbit around Mars shows the Curiosity rover as it explores the barren landscape.
Britain and the European Union are going through a pretty rough public breakup if you haven’t heard, and fan-favorite personality and British person Jeremy Clarkson has an opinion about it.
I’ve heard it time and time again, “X-Crossover isn’t vehicular punishment”. It’s a statement that is as profoundly annoying as it is painfully stupid. The whole concept of a crossover is to pair the drivability of a car with the functionality of an SUV, and if that’s akin to vehicular punishment, then based of…
