Rahal Wins At Honda Indy 200 And More People Gotta Watch This Stuff

There’s a kind of understanding, a kind of awareness you reach whenever you watch racing live that you never really get just from watching TV. It’s happened to me at Formula One, MotoGP, most sports car series, and now after covering the race at Mid-Ohio, I get IndyCar too in a way I didn’t before. » 8/02/15 6:45pm Yesterday 6:45pm

Kenseth Wins NASCAR Race After Everyone In Front Of Him Runs Out Of Gas

To say that today’s Sprint Cup Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway was chaotic would be the understatement of the year. After racking up seven cautions in the first 72 laps alone, the race ran long and nuttier than usual. Watch how it ended: with cars everywhere dropping like flies from running out of fuel.

Ryan Reed was not happy with Ross Chastain driving him into the wall during the green-white-checkered finish of last night’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race.

Go Inside Cadillac's Monster ATS-V.R Race Car

I’m an unapologetic fan of the Cadillac ATS-V.R GT3-spec racer.

(Also, that batshit crazy … » 8/02/15 12:41pm Yesterday 12:41pm

Why Buy A V6 Ford Mustang When This 200 MPH Mercedes SL600 Is Cheaper? 

When I was younger and much less incorrigible, I remember seeing a car that forced me to stop and stare, jaw unceremoniously agape. That car was a Mercedes SL600, just like this beautiful example. What’s even more mind boggling is that you can now buy it for entry level Mustang money and have enough change left over… » 8/02/15 12:12pm Yesterday 12:12pm

This Is What U.S.-Russian Relations Could Have Been

This amazing photo shows fighting machines that were built as enemies, the B-52 Stratofortress and the Tu-95 Bear, along with the later Cold War era KC-10 Extender and An-124 Condor, all sitting together peacefully on the same ramp.

You walk through a museum and you stop at an interesting exhibit. “Hey, there’s one of those Chrysler Turbine Cars. Let’s read the sign and see what we can learn.” If you are at the Gilmore Museum near Kalamazoo, this sign is what you will be reading.
