Since 2010's Hydro Thunder Hurricane, developer Vector Unit’s been finding new ways to do what they do best: high-speed water-based racing. With Riptide GP: Renegade they’re taking a stab at adding depth and character. It’s about damn time.
Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone’s mother-in-law has reportedly been kidnapped in Brazil and held for a ransom demand of roughly $36.5 million, according to Brazilian magazine Veja.
Before Baylor’s latest massive athletics scandal, the university’s football team sucked on a different level: they couldn’t win games—at least until RGIII showed up and made them respectable. They couldn’t give tickets away when I went there, so they covered up the unused endzone seating with a giant tarp. Uh, hey,…
A restart attempt at today’s NASCAR Brickyard 400 ended up bringing out the red flag because it made such a huge mess, which led to three more restart attempts. The No. 19 of Carl Edwards got loose on the restart, causing a big chain-reaction pile-up that collected a large chunk of the field.
The phrase “short tracks, short tempers” is a classic in racing, and there isn’t a more perfect example of than a recent incident from Bowman Gray Stadium—a wreck for the lead, retaliation under caution, and a grand finale of two cars smacking each other in the infield. This, everyone, is as authentic as it gets.
There are a few ways that Formula One can inform a driver that there’s faster traffic behind him. One is with the traditional blue flag thrown by trackside marshals. Another, more desperate but more entertaining method, is for the overtaking driver to flip the bird as he blows by the slower car. Let’s watch!
Conditions were so nasty at the Hungaroring yesterday that 11 drivers of the 22-car Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix field set qualifying times slower than 107% the time of Rosberg’s leading 1:33.302 lap, reports Racer. Under F1's 107% rule, anyone who qualifies that slowly gets pulled from the race.
What Eldora giveth, Eldora taketh away. There’s good reason why Eldora Speedway is one of the most notorious dirt tracks in the world. Bobby Pierce briefly took the lead from Kyle Larson during last night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, only to run wide, whack the wall, and end his race.
Gordon’s back, back again. Gordon’s back, tell a friend. Beloved four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon is coming out of retirement to drive Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s car at Indianapolis and Pocono while Earnhardt recovers from concussion-like symptoms.
This is the story of why one of the most dominant race cars of the modern era, the IMSA GTO Audi 90 Quattro, had a little doll that mooned other racers.
What’s the best way to follow up winning the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans? Winning the 100th anniversary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is pretty far up the list. That’s what Porsche 919 driver Romain Dumas did a week after Le Mans, and his bone-shakingly rough PPIHC onboard video is simply unreal.
Did you miss Jeff Gordon’s farewell tour last year before he retired from driving in NASCAR? Well Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!!, July 24, you may get your chance to see Fox Sports’ star commentator back the car. Either way, he better deliver the goods on his in-car commentary, given his new post-retirement gig.
Dan Downey’s truck and trailer burned down on the way to the New England Forest Rally this weekend. Did that stop him from entering the race? Hell no!

Two weeks after redefining my standard for batshit crazy at the Isle of Man TT, I found myself sitting at the foot of Pikes Peak, about to blast off up the hill to try to best the record for front-wheel-drive vehicles. And not kill myself in the process.
Priorities, man. Are you really going to miss that shot if a big Formula One crash just happens right in front of you? I didn’t think so.
Driving a race car is a dangerous activity, which is why celebrations in victory lane should be enjoyable and not the stuff of your worst nightmares. Right? No, not right.
