These engines just don’t want to cooperate, do they? Much in line with the luck of NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup drivers so far this year, Brad Keselowski joined Martin Truex Jr. in the Talladega Superspeedway garage for a blown engine.
Martin Truex Jr., winner of two races in this year’s NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup and a title favorite, was minding his business at Talladega Superspeedway. That’s what you have to do, because avoiding wrecks is key. But engine issues sent him to the garage, potentially knocking him out of the Chase.
Hello, race fans! It’s time again for Austin’s own United States Grand Prix, an event that has so far seen 100 percent less catastrophic flooding and 100 percent more Taylor Swift than last year’s race. But now it’s time for the main event, and your Jalopnik staff is dutifully liveblogging the whole thing.
The Malaise Era is often thought of as the worst time period for cars. This is generally accurate. But what car from that era is legitimately worth owning today?
During a long break in track action at the United States Grand Prix on Friday, my colleague Stef Schrader decided it was a good idea to tell me, a crazy cat lady, that there may be about a dozen feral cats at Circuit of The Americas. Drop the laptops. Drop the blogs. We had to go find the cats.
Formula One steering wheels have colorful knobs and buttons for everything under the sun. Here’s a close-up shot of Max Verstappen’s Red Bull steering wheel from this year’s United States Grand Prix.
Few things are more clichéd and less insightful than interviews with racing drivers, particularly in Formula One. And this year’s American F1 race is set to be an extremely predictable one, barring any disastrous upsets. In response to both, we have crafted a drinking game that you should never, ever do, as you’ll…
Old cars are the best! They’re so mechanical and analog and involved and wonderful... until you hit something, and then you start to see the value of things like airbags, stability control and automatic braking systems.
Formula One teams transform their garages into exceedingly tidy apartments for each race, with storage space for items you’d never think to give its own little cubbyhole. We walked through Williams’ space, and here’s how they explained their garage/suite works on a race weekend.
Yes, it happened again (again), and right in my own back yard.
Sunny, breezy, 75 degrees and filled with the sounds of race cars doing race car things—not a bad Saturday at all here in Austin, Texas. Here are some scenes from today out at Circuit of the Americas.
In Mono County, California you’ll find beautiful, mountainous wildland. And sometimes those mountains drop really big boulders onto the road. For the local road workers, those are the best days on the job.
World’s fastest selfie enthusiast and three-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton just crushed the old qualifying lap record at Circuit of the Americas to win pole position for this weekend’s United States Grand Prix.
This is the Mercedes-Benz CLK-Klasse Glass Roof Experimental Car and the only thing I know about it is I want one.
A vehicle wrecking at the front of the pack is last thing you want to see in a NASCAR race at Talladega Superspeedway. This wreck probably should have collected about half of the field, but appears to have only got two or three trucks because of some damn good saves. Just watch this madness.
