America is a huge domestic market. Much as we produce a lot of corn for our own consumption, we also produce a lot of racing just to be enjoyed by Americans. But there is (and has been) a lot of very important international events held here.
Professional motorsport is a cold, hard place. If you want to run with the big dogs, you can't just build a car in your mom's garage and show up, right? Wrong. One guy did just that. Here's his amazing story.
With the addition of an American team to the Formula One team, everyone was hoping there would finally be an American driver in F1. Nope! According to Haas F1 team principal Günther Steiner, there are no American drivers currently under consideration for 2016.
A study of over four million instagram posts over a span of four years has concluded that BMW is the most popular automotive brand photographed on the social imaging app Instagram - an app mostly used by Vine users and celebrity public relations managers.
I decided to take a little break from my annual Fourth of July marathon lovemaking session with a very special and majestic bald eagle to talk to you about an American car that I think deserves more attention than it gets: the Crosley Hotshot. The humble little Hotshot helped define a sportscar formula that still…
These are the first full photos of the all-new 2016 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin, perhaps the first bike to genuinely live up to the adventure motorcycle’s potential. Big dirt bike? Yep, and not much more.
Last September, I boarded a plane to Denmark. It was the start of a seven and a half month, round-the-world adventure. Yesterday at 10:05am, I landed at LAX. Man, this place is weird.
Blue Ridge Parkway. Tail of the Dragon. Mardi Gras (on accident?!?). Hail, Snow, Rain, and Sleet. Texas BBQ. Dinner on the Pacific in Mission Bay. And that was just the first three days.Duluth.
The US Postal Service runs about 200,000 Grumman Long Live Vehicles (LLV) all over the country, which you'd recognize as the pokey little vans that look like they're made of Legos. After some 30 years of braving snow, rain, heat, and gloom of night, Uncle Sam has a long list of specs they want for the next mail truck.
Oil is too cheap now for it to be profitable to pull oil out of your backyard. Fuck that. Plundering nature on an individual level is basically the founding myth of America.
These ten brands need to come back, for America.
Two weeks ago, we brought you the first half of our coverage of Rally North America's biggest event yet: the US50 Rally, from West Virginia to Missouri. Then last week, we showed you what our Jeep SRT is like at a hot, elevated track day. Today, let's see more sights, meet more folks, and share the conclusion of Rally…
Marketing company Brand Keys surveys thousands of people every year, to rate companies on 35 different "values." One of those is "patriotism," not in terms of where the a company actually makes things or employs people, but purely how "American" they appear in public perception. Only two automakers made the top 25.
The Ford F-150 topped Cars.com's ninth "American-Made Index" which rates how "American" vehicles are based primarily on where they're built and where parts come from. Only ten 2014 vehicles were eligible for the list, the smallest crop ever.
The timeless, Twinky-esque beauty of a classic Airstream trailer is even sweeter with a US Men's World Cup Team wrap job.
On the racetrack, these two guys are America's best shot at putting one of its own in the seat of a Formula 1 car. And they get asked about this a lot. But we have other burning questions: which of them plays Pokémon on his Nintendo DS? What celebrity do they want to go on a date with? And more importantly, what are…
V8 or not, these ten cars are more American than a hamburger filled with beef jerky and marshmallows.
