The Bullrunners Try to Take Their Love to Town, Cops Tell Them, 'Don't.'

We just heard from Annabelle Frankl, the first woman ever to get arrested on the Bullrun, that a pack of around 25 ralliers were rolling through a wooded area in the Peach State at around 125 mph. When they emerged from the engorged thicket, the police were waiting in the median and picked off the whole group. The… » 5/16/07 4:15pm 5/16/07 4:15pm

Bullrun 2007: Mother's Day Morning Running With The Bulls

We made it out of Boston this Mother's Day morning at what seemed like the crack o' dawn. In reality, it was like 9:00 AM. It just felt much earlier due to the pounding headache from the debauchery of the night prior but whatevs, as you can see — by the time the Team #70 Escalade made it to the lineup, we were already… » 5/13/07 7:58pm 5/13/07 7:58pm

The Bullrun Is Here! The Bullrun Is Here!

Yup, we're in Boston now. Team Twins have been reunited — everything is all peachy keen. While we decompress a bit after an exciting and exhausting day, we've put together some of the sights and livery of the first day of the Bullrun — or at least the morning of the first day. We'll have the full story up soon to… » 5/12/07 8:02pm 5/12/07 8:02pm

Bullrun 2007: The Bullrun Is Coming! The Bullrun Is Coming!

We've got two Frankls coming by land, none by sea — one Frankls gotten to the checkpoint, while another's just trying to avoid a coronary from my inability to capture a picture of a "moose crossing" sign. But fear not, all is now well — as evidenced above, I finally did get the picture. It'll serve as proof that we've… » 5/12/07 6:26pm 5/12/07 6:26pm

Bullrun 2007: We're In Vermont, Meow!

We've picked up Annabelle in the Escalade — and she's taking the wheel as we head through Vermont to Conway, New Hampshire to meet up with her big (by 20 minutes) brother. We'll have pictures up from earlier at the start of the race shortly. So sit back for a while, meow, and be entertained. » 5/12/07 2:22pm 5/12/07 2:22pm

Bullrun 2007: Annabelle, Your Big Brother's Comin' To Getcha!

This is Nicholas Frankl. Nicholas Frankl is sad. Why is Nicholas Frankl so sad? Nicholas is sad because his twin sis Annabelle is across the border in the land of the stars n' bars while Nicholas parties it up here in the land o' the red maple leaf. But fear not sweet Annabelle, your big brother (by 20 minutes) is on… » 5/12/07 1:46am 5/12/07 1:46am

In case you're not doing anything over the weekend — feel free to come join Wert on a little adventure he'll be taking following some friends in a Chevy Corvette Z06 as they have some fun rallying from Montreal to Key West.

Magnum DGJ: Jalopnik Hits the (Pebble) Beach

Last Thursday, around 7:30am we were supposed to be on our way to Pebble Beach in a Ferrari 308 GTB with Jalopnik reader, Larry Manetti fan and all-around fantastic character Pen Pendleton, who was to play Rick to our Thomas Magnum. But we weren't. We were asleep, having snoozed right through our alarm. A few frantic… » 8/22/06 12:30pm 8/22/06 12:30pm

Bullrun '06: Party With Me Punker: San Diego Edition

If you want to blast across the country, you can do it for as little as the cost of gasoline, accomodations, coffee and any incidental repairs and speeding tickets you may incur. If you wanna do it on the Bullrun, you've gotta pony up 14k. As an embedded journalist, we were provided with two nights of accomodations,… » 7/31/06 9:00pm 7/31/06 9:00pm

Why Carl Lewis Rules

Nine Olympic gold medals should be reason enough for anyone to be considered a badass. But here's the thing: we don't consider Carl a badass because of that, although he was a childhood hero to us. We consider Carl a badass because in the world of sporting/celebrity culture, he's earned the right to be a total dick,… » 7/31/06 7:45am 7/31/06 7:45am

Bullrun Update: Baby Out of Jail

According to Bullrun HQ: "Latest info direct from Kansas City..1st Tove Christensen, 2nd Los Matadors, 3rd Team Gotham..all cars now starting to arrive. AMG Dolls in 5th." Which means that we must amend our earlier statement that the Magnaflow RS4 was not the first in, and apparently the GT2 sled of Tove Christiansen… » 7/25/06 1:30am 7/25/06 1:30am

Bullrun Update: Kansas City

So the veterans of the Fourth Battle of Bullrun aren't pulling into Manassas, VA tonight, but rather Kansas City, MO, after bombing down from Chicago via Saint Louis, presumably not stopping to check out the legendary screen door of Belleville, IL. Alex Roy has been aggregating anecdotes for us, and after the jump,… » 7/24/06 11:15pm 7/24/06 11:15pm
