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.

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.
One of the coolest track toys you can buy—no joke—is an old NASCAR racer. Not only are they built like tanks and sound glorious, but they also make for hilarious situations like this, where a Toyota Tundra race truck chases down a Ferrari 458.
Before the 2017 race season, the powers that be in NASCAR decided to overhaul the sport’s rules—like, seismic levels of change here. But they couldn’t leave it alone for more than 11 races, changing the race format for the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday. And now, they’re considering more rule changes for 2018.
Fans leave behind all sorts of things at major race weekends—tents, coolers, old couches, and in the case of this weekend’s Coke 600, even one of their own.
NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was disappointed in his second place finish at this weekend’s Coke 600, and wasn’t in the mood to answer questions. So, he gave a brief answer to the one he was asked in the media pit, and to signify he done once and for all, he threw the microphone down.
The Silver State Classic is a simple event: the Nevada Department of Transportation shuts down 90 miles of State Route 318 every year for a bunch of gearheads to do top speed runs. Among the entrants are various hot rods, muscle cars and something like this 2006 Dodge NASCAR stock car running to a trap speed of 243…
Austin Dillon wanted to celebrate his first-ever NASCAR Cup Series win after tonight’s Coke 600, but he won by stretching his fuel out over the race’s final laps. Sadly, fuel mileage gambles just don’t leave enough in the tank for a proper burnout. Behold: the happiest driver doing the saddest burnout.
Chase Elliott ran over a piece of debris that fell off Jeffrey Earnhardt’s car during tonight’s NASCAR Coke 600, causing his car to leak oil and catch on fire. Brad Keselowski was the unlucky driver who had nowhere to go, hitting the back of Elliott’s car so hard that Keselowski’s front end went under the rear of…
