There’s a thing southern folks like to say, and surely you’ve heard it before: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That’s what NASCAR did by making “overtime” rules at the start of the 2016 season, and it’s gone about as well as enrolling a cat in swim lessons. And maybe, just maybe, NASCAR’s starting to realize that.
Former NASCAR driver Greg Biffle’s ex-wife and ex-mother-in-law filed a lawsuit against him that alleges hidden cameras and peeping inside of his home, according to WSOC-TV. The local station reports that the lawsuit alleges there were secret cameras in the master bedroom, bathroom and guest bedroom.
The week began well for the No. 88, the beacon of all light and hope for NASCAR fans. Racing demi-god Dale Earnhardt Jr., who will usher in the end of life as we know it when he retires this year, qualified it first at Daytona. Then, he wrecked it. Then, he wrecked it again. Then, someone in England wrecked it, too.
A big crash among the front of the field at tonight’s NASCAR Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway sent Kyle Larson’s No. 42 car up into the air at 190 mph. Eight cars got caught up in the chain reaction of wreckage that followed, forcing the race to be red flagged for cleanup with only six laps to go.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. was fighting his way back up to the front during tonight’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. He was already back on the lead lap after hitting the wall near the end of Stage 2, but then a big crash in Stage 3 put him back into the wall and ended his race tonight for good. Ouch.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. came into today’s Coke Zero 400—his final race at Daytona International Speedway—as a favorite to win, starting from pole position. Then he hit the wall at Turn 1, damaging the right side of his car extensively. Now he’s got to fight his way back up from two laps down.
The NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway has been kind of like a two-day marathon, but not in the Rolex 24 Hours way. Rain just keeps washing out the race, so much so that you get psychologically conditioned to think that every caution is for a damp track. But this one wasn’t, for once.
When NASCAR Peak Mexico Series driver Santiago Tovar lost his brakes in a race last week, he told Motorsport.com he “became a passenger in the car” that drove him straight into a crowd. Spectators were reportedly treated for minor injuries, but wreck footage makes things look like they could have been much worse.
The best gifts to the man who raised you should be thoughtful, kind, and cutting and grim reminders of dead cars they loved and held near and dear. NASCAR driver and Friend of Jalopnik Parker Kligerman gave his dad just that kind of perfect gift this past Father’s Day, with a framed chunk of the engine piece that…
Sometimes NASCAR’s race cars get into collisions that put them out of operation for good. But what becomes of these retired pieces of potential NASCAR history? JR Motorsports dropped a video this week showcasing how Dale Earnhardt Jr. situates some of those wrecked cars into his wooded “NASCAR graveyard.”
We won’t spoil it for you. Just watch the video.
Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Busch, known to take little kids’ lunch money in the lower Xfinity Series, started on the pole for Saturday’s race at Michigan International Speedway. He didn’t stay up there for long, as contact with close friend Brad Keselowski sent him straight into the infield grass.
Tonight’s NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series race at Texas Motor Speedway ended in total chaos one lap earlier than expected as a big wreck sent Timothy Peters spinning on his roof. Meanwhile, still on track, they had to figure out who was ahead when the now-race-ending caution flag was dropped for the crash.
Timothy Peters found his Chevy upside down a lap away from finishing tonight’s NASCAR truck series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Despite rolling his vehicle, he walked away from the wreck.
Nearly three years after drunk NASCAR fan No. 1 climbed the catch fence during a race at Richmond International Raceway, it happened again Sunday. NASCAR never even threw a caution for this guy, and USA Today reports that local police said he “kicked an officer in the knee” while being taken into custody.
NASCAR is the butt of many jokes over the fact that they won’t run any of their ovals in the rain. But NASCAR will run on a wet road course. The perfect combination of a soaking wet track and ludicrously powerful stock cars is more fun than anyone deserves to watch, and this Mosport battle is one of the best I’ve…
Tires have been particularly tricky in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway this time around, and one of the recent victims was the Monster Energy car of Kurt Busch. If Monster hasn’t made a figurative bang as the new title sponsor so far, well, it has now—literally.
NASCAR driver Austin Dillon didn’t get to properly celebrate his first ever Cup Series win with a big burnout. He ran out of gas just as the tires started to spin. So, to redeem the good name of the post-race burnout, he whipped out a gold-wrapped Camaro and filled a barn full of smoke.
If “Ocean’s 11 but rednecks and NASCAR” sounds appealing to you, then you’ll be interested to find out that the director of Ocean’s 11 is making Logan Lucky, another heist movie but with dumb, slightly offensive southern stereotypes plotting to rob Charlotte Motor Speedway during the Coca Cola 600.
