Leading a single-file line of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race cars across the finish line after a wild amount of lead changes in the final laps, Kurt Busch won the 2017 Daytona 500 for Stewart-Haas Racing. He then proceeded to do a celebratory burnout across the infield grass, tearing it right up.
After a string of two crashes in a row, the Daytona 500 has done it again with 59 laps to go. Jamie McMurray is involved once again, turning the car of Chase Elliott into Michael McDowell, causing a gigantic pile-up on Daytona International Speedway.
Here’s what happens when NASCAR’s Cup Series tries to go four-wide at Daytona where there’s only space for three cars abreast: one huge crash.
After the first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series stage break of 2017, I just feel robbed. The first stage of today’s Daytona 500 ended on lap 60, and the second stage went green on lap 68. The caution break between stages eats up laps that count towards the race distance, which is a ridiculous waste of everyone’s…
After more than a stage and a half of racing in the Daytona 500—that’s 105 laps in new-NASCAR talk—a tire went down on Kyle Busch’s car and spun the No. 18 around, collecting bunch of cars and tearing them up. Afterward, Busch blamed and served a major burn to NASCAR’s “official” tire. That’ll be a nice fine.
Close call? Close call. Either way, the first caution at the surprisingly clean (so far) Daytona 500 came out after a pretty simple mistake that could have ended much, much worse.
Look, we’ve all seen old NASCAR dudes hock boner pills as they ride the wave of #brand cash into old age. Today’s Daytona 500 is Fox Sports commentator Michael Waltrip’s last race as a competitor, and comedian Larry the Cable Guy was all too knowledgeable about how NASCAR’s old men continue to make a buck even long…
Why buy a Bugatti Veyron when you can have a fancy Beetle with green stripes and half the power for the same price? Just when you thought the 911 R pricing reached its most ridiculous point, a dealer down under has one listed for 1.19 million AUS (aprox. $920,000 USD)
Rob Gronkowski is, for whatever reason, on Fox’s Daytona 500 coverage today, and he’s doing roughly what you’d expect him to be doing. Here he’s talking to a young woman identified as a “Monster girl,” and not quite getting the answer he was going for.
NASCAR CEO and chairman Brian France, who usually doesn’t publicly comment on competition issues in his sport, uncharacteristically instructed drivers not to block at the Daytona 500 drivers meeting, reports NBC Sports. The problem is, you have to keep the other drivers behind you somehow in order to win at a…
The day is here: glorious, high-speed American stock-car racing is back for a new season. But that new season comes with a lot of changes, from a major rules overhaul to alarming driver swaps over the offseason. Let’s get you caught up on everything you need to know before the Daytona 500.
The biggest day in American stock-car racing is here, and you may have noticed that it’s going to look a whole lot different—and more complicated—this time around. Luckily, we’ve got your back. Here’s a breakdown of everything you need to know about the Daytona 500 and the 2017 NASCAR season.
Ever since we’ve had both Red Bull and Scuderia Toro Rosso sharing the grid, it’s been hard at times to tell them apart, especially when they’re further away. They’re usually both dark blue with a red bull, although Toro Rosso’s has been a more stylized illustration of Red Bull’s logo-animal. This year, they’re…
We’ve seen the other nine teams’ Formula One cars for this year, so where is Scuderia Toro Rosso’s new STR12? Its launch today has been delayed slightly due to a problem with the Renault power unit on the team’s filming day, reports Motorsport.com. Uh-oh. Here we go again!
Red Bull’s 2017-spec car is named the RB13, so they released an appropriately freaky launch video to debut their new car with every cheesy superstition in the books. Please, show it to small children and send us the reaction videos.
After a couple photos of the real, in-the-flesh 2017 Haas Formula One car leaked yesterday, the team’s livery renders look sort of familiar. Now we know once and for all: this is the Haas VF-17 car that the first American F1 team since 1986 will use for their second season, and it looks pretty rad.
This is not street drifting. This is how people drift on the street in Tokyo, in their street drifting cars, only organized into a competition on track.
It’s warm enough to come out of hibernation and start exercising again, and Amazon’s celebrating with a sale on athletic accessories, today only.
The Haas Formula One team is all set to debut their new car at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time tomorrow, but photos of their new car leaked out from a filming day at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, reports Motorsport.com. Haas’ 2017-spec racer, the VF-17, was captured in the Catalunya pit lane sporting a dark grey and red…
