If there’s any greater pain than crashing out of a race, it’s crashing when you’re so close to finishing that you can see the finish line.
Dale Coyne Racing IndyCar driver Sébastien Bourdais had been one of the fastest drivers in practice, setting the fastest time of Fast Friday. He was on track to set the fastest Indy 500 qualifying run of Saturday, but crashed hard into the wall after completing only two of his four qualifying laps, flipping in the…
A Ford Mustang was unbelievably split in half after being t-boned by a Mercedes-Benz at an intersection in Palmdale, California, reports Fox 11.

Chase Elliott didn’t quite see Michael McDowell’s No. 95 car swoop in for a pit stop in Kansas Speedway’s pit lane, turning McDowell around and damaging both cars in the process. Well, that’s the pits.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to see a rider bail out early in my life.
Today, Formula E went to the narrow, windy streets of Monaco on a shortened version of its iconic course, where passing is still as tough as it gets. I’m not sure I can think of any alternate universe where this crazy red mist pass attempt around the outside would actually work.
Two Canadian brothers, aged 6 and 8, really, really wanted some breakfast, and they wanted it from the holiest of Canadian holy sites: Tim Hortons. So, why wait for Mom and Dad?

The No. 26 Freedom Autosport Mazda MX-5 started a chain reaction of aggressive love-taps during Friday’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race, making a proper mess right at Circuit of The Americas’ start-finish line. That’s not the place for pit maneuvers, in case you didn’t know.

For many fans, GTLM is our favorite class in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, with all the major factory teams.

You never really know how how much race cars depend on their aerodynamics until they suddenly snap off at high speed.
Sometimes I think that rally teams should be the only ones allowed to touch my car. If you want something fixed fast and right, you probably need Kris Meeke’s crew from the Citroën team. Meeke’s car looked like a write-off after a crash, yet it was back up and ready to race in just three hours.
Sometimes there’s just one tricky, evil part of a rally stage that breaks cars. During last weekend at Poland’s Śląska Rally, a moist section of road liked to slide people breaking from a faster part of the stage right into a car-eating, sometimes car-flipping ditch.
Rally Mexico had one of the most incredible ends to a rally ever, with Citroën World Rally Championship driver Kris Meeke winning the rally despite flying off the road for a detour through a spectator parking lot. Now Citröen has remixed the video to offer several funny explanations for that detour.

Did you need to use the pit lane any time soon, at the start of the last hour of the 6 Hours of Silverstone? Too bad. The No. 4 ByKolles ENSO CLM P1/01 prototype collided with the No. 97 Aston Martin and left an enormous mess all over the entrance to it.
Toyota wants so badly to be back in winning form this year after a 2016 saw them lose the 24 Hours of Le Mans due to a last-minute connector failure.

When the No. 37 car of Chris Buescher was tapped from behind from the No. 77 of Erik Jones in the pit lane during this weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race in Texas, Buescher’s car spun around into its pits stall trunk-first—right into Buescher’s jack man Zack Young. Ouch!
The Corvette Racing team was all set for a 1-2 GTLM class win at today’s WeatherTech Sports Car Championship race until the No. 3 Corvette got stuck behind a three-car pile-up on the exit of Long Beach’s final hairpin. Is there anything worse than watching everyone pass you while you’re stuck behind a crash?
When Dirk Müller tried to get his No. 66 Ford GT back into race traffic around a blind hairpin on the Long Beach Grand Prix circuit, he caused an honest-to-goodness traffic jam that would be just as plausible on I-5.
