The men’s marathon traditionally closes each Olympiad, and here’s a spectator riding alongside the leaders who snatches an impressive memento: Eliud Kipchoge’s hat.
Contrary to the weather’s behavior, God does not hate NASCAR. Rather, God was probably just as annoyed by all the bratty kids named “Kyle” in your elementary school class as you were, and just did one NASCAR fan a solid. One fan pledged to name his kid after yesterday’s winner at Pocono and surprise, it’s a Chris.
Three people went to the hospital after a truck’s driveshaft was catapulted into the crowd at a Utah demolition derby. The videos are a terror:
Friend of Jalopnik Sarah Connors is a yuuuuuuuuuge Alexander Rossi fan, down to the big American flag banner she made for his maiden attempt at the Indianapolis 500. Needless to say, she’s overjoyed with the results of yesterday’s race.
America’s big hope in Formula One wins America’s greatest spectacle in racing on his first attempt, for America? Yeah, there’s going to be a party. Something tells me there was going to be a party regardless of the outcome with the Indianapolis 500's sold-out crowd, anyway.
It’s notoriously difficult to get in and out of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Traffic will be so bad for this weekend’s sold-out race, you might as well camp out. Since you’re not driving anyway, why not have a beer—or ten? Join us as we roam Indy’s campgrounds in search of the party.
Two Florida men were found dead in a camper on the Talladega Superspeedway campgrounds on Sunday afternoon, reports the Tallahassee Democrat. Officials do not suspect foul play in their deaths, however, autopsies are being done by the state forensics lab to determine the cause of death.
I’m pretty sure this is the NASCAR version of Excited Astronomer or Double Rainbow Guy, but it’s proof that despite all the fame, most NASCAR drivers are pretty good people. Watch reigning Sprint Cup champion Kyle Busch totally make a random fan’s day, and bask in all the joy emanating from your screen.
In a surprising move this week, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series powerhouse Stewart-Haas Racing announced that they were moving from campaigning Chevrolets to Fords for 2017. Naturally, some NASCAR fans are coping with this news better than others.

This man — Fan Man — has the most important job in racing right now. It’s hot and humid as balls outside at this test day, and all I’m doing is walking around grabbing some photos. Inside a car probably feels like a sauna when the car is off.
A crowd of fans at Poland’s Rally Rzeszowski got an unpleasant surprise. Driver Łukasz Byśkiniewicz lost control of his car, plowing into a spectator area just off the course. Miraculously, no one was hit as the entire crowd hustled out of the car’s way.
Red flags are a bummer. Having a one-on-one conversation with your favorite driver, not so much. This dude isn’t crazy. He’s smart. (Well, until NASCAR chases him off, whatever.)
[These fans watching the Lime Rock Tudor United SportsCar race knew how to do it properly. If you’re going to camp out at one corner most of the time, why not plop a couch down in front of one of the more interesting turns?]
Some automotive enthusiasts groups get the good life. OEM factory parts support, publicity, sponsors and even international forums or events. Some others aren’t so lucky.
"Something's fucked up" is all Danica Patrick could muster after leading much of today's NASCAR Nationwide tour race at Montreal then being knocked out by a mechanical issue after running over a shoe thrown onto the track by a spectator.
I don't know if memorial car stickers are a thing elsewhere in the country, but they're popular in Florida. People here regularly attach vinyl stickers to their rear windows in tribute to a beloved who has passed away.
That parking spot is just big enough for a
Fiat Citroen VTS, and to actually make it work is that much more challenging in front of a helpful group like this.
A 21-year-old Detroit Lions fan is dead after running into open traffic and being struck by a city bus outside Ford Field. Here's the full report from Fox-2 Detroit; be sure to focus on how many times they use the phrase "by a bus."
Topical? No, because this all took place back on January 11th, but somehow it escaped our notice until now.
