You Think Your Taxes Are Bad? NASCAR Drivers Have To File In 20 States

Today, April 15th, is Tax Day. And you think this is a problem for you, because you are ever-so-slightly disorganized. But today should be the one day you thank the Lord On High that you are not also a NASCAR driver, because doing a NASCAR driver’s taxes is a pit of the deepest, darkest, hottest hellfire.

NASCAR Debris Cautions In Texas Were Probably Caused By Taco Dribble

NASCAR doesn't always do the best job of explaining their debris cautions. Today's race at Texas Motor Speedway has a convenient Tex-Mex excuse for any yellow flags that get thrown. Pit lane commentator Michael Waltrip spilled a taco all over Denny Hamlin's car on the grid. » 4/12/15 12:05pm 4/12/15 12:05pm

Someone Please Help Kyle Larson Because He Eats Like A Weirdo

I like Young Kyle Larson. When he sat with us to answer all of your questions, he really did answer all of your questions. That makes him A-OKAY in my book. Young Kyle fainted Saturday after an autograph session, and that’s worrying. But more concerning is his admission that he just ate chicken soup and tacos that… » 4/10/15 5:45pm 4/10/15 5:45pm

This Is How Texas Motor Speedway Will Take A Few Years Off Your Life

This weekend, NASCAR goes to Texas Motor Speedway, where of course, some terrifying state-fair-like concoctions will be on the track menu. Here's how they plan to kill us slowly this year: chicken wings dipped in bacon queso, then coated in bacon bits and Doritos. I'm surprised Taco Bell hasn't asked for the recipe. » 4/08/15 5:40pm 4/08/15 5:40pm

Ryan Newman Busted For (Allegedly) Cheaty Tires; Team Appeals Penalty

When NASCAR audited its latest round of tires, one team's set was found not to be holding air properly: the #31 car of Richard Childress Racing driver Ryan Newman.

NASCAR Admits That Daytona's Qualifying Was Terrible By Changing It

Even NASCAR semi-admitted that its qualifying format for the Daytona 500 this year was a mess, saying that the sanctioning body was "open to discussions" on how to improve it. Personally, I think Clint Bowyer said it best. Anyway, they just changed their superspeedway qualifying format, hopefully for the better. » 3/30/15 3:32pm 3/30/15 3:32pm

Kyle Larson Fainted In Autograph Session; Will Miss Today's Race

According to Fox Sports, NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Kyle Larson was taken to the hospital yesterday after fainting in an autograph session.

Are NASCAR Teams Drilling Holes In Their Own Tires?

There's a rumor floating around the NASCAR paddock that teams are drilling tiny holes in their tires to maintain a more even tire pressure throughout the race, according to USA Today. I'm not sure how that would work without exploding into a horrifying tire-ball, but then again, I'm not a master of clever cheatin'. » 3/28/15 11:00am 3/28/15 11:00am

NASCAR's Original Racetrack Is an Abandoned Ruin Today

The North Wilkesboro Speedway opened in 1947, nearly a year before NASCAR was founded. The short track near moonshine country was where the first NASCAR champion, Robert "Red" Byron, was crowned. Today, five years after being abandoned, the historic speedway is just a rotting pile of sticks, crooked chairs, and… » 3/23/15 3:34pm 3/23/15 3:34pm

Tony Stewart Is Pissed And Wants Martin Truex Jr. To Know About It

Martin Truex Jr.'s number 78 Chevy had a bit of a run-in with Tony Stewart's number 14 Chevy during today's NASCAR Sprint Cup Auto Club 400. So, Stewart let Truex know in the pits after the race—rather heatedly. (At least no one threw any punches or grabbed onto any firesuits this time.) » 3/22/15 9:41pm 3/22/15 9:41pm

Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Tire Burst Into Flame After It Exploded

Phoenix International Raceway hasn't been kind to right rear tires during today's CampingWorld.com 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
