If you frequent this lovely car blog, you’ve probably been reading a lot about the Mazda RX-7 lately. But, this time, let’s just sit back and admire one for a bit.
For the second year in a row, Chase Elliott is on pole for the Daytona 500. Elliott became the youngest pole-sitter in Daytona 500 history in 2016 at 20 years old, and he’ll start first again on Feb. 26. Dale Earnhardt Jr. locked in the second spot, and the other cars will race for starting positions on Thursday.
As technology further integrates into the car industry, doing things from the car continues to get easier. You can have Volvo drop off packages, talk to Amazon’s Alexa and all sorts of things. But technology can also allow people to access cars long after they’ve sold them, which is enough to leave any buyer…
Those in attendance at the Formula E Buenos Aires ePrix witnessed history yesterday. Roborace debuted what’s being billed as the first competitive race between self-driving cars on a professional Formula E track. How’d it go? Great! Or, it was at least great for the winning car.
One of the biggest stories of last year’s NASCAR season wasn’t on track, but rather, about who was missing: Dale Earnhardt Jr. sat out the last half of the season recovering from a concussion. Unlike other series whose sports rhyme with “schmootball,” NASCAR actually beefed up their concussion protocol after last…
If you are going car shopping this President’s weekend and have a hankering for a V8-powered muscle sedan, this will apparently be the last month your local dealer will be able to order you a Chevrolet SS before time runs out.
What a day this has been. When the leaders wrecked out on the final lap of the rain-postponed Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, NASCAR let the other cars race to the line rather than ending under caution. Watch the wild finish below.
I can imagine quite a few horror scenarios onboard an airplane. Looking outside your window and seeing fighter jets is definitely at the very top of that list. That was the reality this week for passengers aboard an Indian Jet Airways flight bound for London that lost contact with air traffic controllers in Cologne,…
Well, that’s a strange omen. At just 17 laps into the unofficial start of the newly renamed Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, the first caution of the year was an ugly wreck by, oddly, the Monster Energy-sponsored race car of Kurt Busch.
Say it with me now: nope nope nope nope nope nope nope...
In case you missed it on Saturday night, rain decided that it wasn’t quite time to start the NASCAR season. The Advance Auto Parts Clash exhibition race for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series had to be moved to Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET on Fox Sports 1. They’ll qualify for the Daytona 500 afterward.
Kurt Busch had a surprise in final practice before this weekend’s Clash at Daytona International Speedway. One of his windows popped right out on pit lane.
Racing for an entire day is hard enough on its own—you don’t get regular sleep, and what little you do gets interrupted by your next stint to drive, or time to work. This gorgeous film from this year’s 24 Hours of Daytona perfectly demonstrates everything that makes it such a grueling race.
Welcome to the ARCA Racing Series season, and racing season in general for stock cars in America. A massive wreck at Daytona International Speedway just collected nearly a dozen cars, leaving a handful on fire and others completely clobbered from contact.
I love surprises. Underdog stories. The unexpected. It’s part of why sports are good. That is, unless I picked guy-who-wins-too-much Sébastien Ogier in The Rally Takeover’s Fantasy World Rally Championship game. Then don’t surprise me, or I’ll get mad when lesser-known drivers actually make things interesting.
Are sports games not your thing? Or, perhaps, are you too disappointed with the world around you to even pay attention to them—or anything else, really? This guy, too. Things appear to be so bad, in fact, that he deliberately brought in the owner’s manual for his Volvo and read it during a basketball game.
When it comes to all-wheel-drive traction in German luxury cars, Audi’s legendary Quattro system has been proven itself by dominating rally circuits. Meanwhile, BMW’s xDrive has become a worthy challenger and a very popular option. But which system is better?
