Team Joest is back, baby! The same squad that helped Audi to numerous Le Mans wins is now helping Mazda’s IMSA prototype team not suck, and I couldn’t be more excited to see them in action. Mazda posted some photos of them working together for the first time, and it gives me all the warm fuzzy feelings inside about…
NASCAR Cup Series driver Chase Elliott’s No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team was penalized Tuesday for unapproved aerodynamic modifications to his car at Chicagoland Speedway. While that isn’t good for Elliott’s playoff hopes, what’s more interesting is that it was caught by fans on live TV.
If there’s anywhere I wouldn’t want to brag about getting away with anything, it’s Singapore—a country so strict, it banned chewing gum. However, yet again, someone made it onto the track at Singapore when they weren’t supposed to. At least they ventured out there while the race wasn’t running this time.
Josef Newgarden became IndyCar’s youngest champion in over a decade and the series’ first American champ in five years. Newgarden had the most number of wins this season, so the championship fits. This was Newgarden’s first year with Team Penske. At age 26, he’s the fresh young face IndyCar needed to win.
IndyCar’s season finale today at Sonoma is going to be insane for one incredible reason: seven different drivers could win the championship. Seven! Sonoma is a double-points race which racing legend A.J. Foyt accurately called a “gimmick” in Autoweek, but that gimmick means that the entire top seven has to bring their…
The first wet Formula One Singapore Grand Prix in history started with a bang. Max Verstappen’s Red Bull car became the filling in a messy Ferrari sandwich at the start of Sunday’s race. Whoever handles Ferrari’s Twitter account tried to place the blame on Max only to get put right in his place by ex-Red Bull F1…
Who’s going to provide Red Bull with Formula One engines when Renault drops the team after 2018? We don’t know! But Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner is willing to say who it won’t be, or so he says. Either way, this is the worst game of 20 Questions I’ve ever seen.
You may have taken home a chunk of car from a race weekend before. Spare canards. Chunks of carbon fiber. That’s neat and all, but did you take home a Ferrari door? Because this dude took home a Ferrari door from one of the Ferrari Challenge races this weekend at Circuit of the Americas.
Ted Christopher, who competed in every level of NASCAR and racked up nearly 50 wins in the Modified Series, was killed in a plane crash in Connecticut on Saturday, the series announced. Christopher was 59.
Porsche is owning their final year in the World Endurance Championship’s top LMP1 class. The No. 2 Porsche 919 grabbed its fourth win in a row at the 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas in a Porsche 1-2 finish. However, that win wasn’t easy after hours of pure chaos and a rad fight with the Toyota TS050 team.
Nothing is over for the LMP1 class just yet, which is set to make big changes following the announcement that Porsche would be leaving the World Endurance Championship. So far in Austin, the battle for ultimate Le Mans prototype domination has been absolutely ruthless in the best way possible.
If you race in Texas and it’s not the dead of winter, you should probably pack a kiddie pool in with your car, spares, tools and other race weekend things. It’s always hot and muggy, and if you just drove a sweaty stint in a six-hour endurance race, why not hop in the pool afterwards to cool off?
A bus driver took a wrong turn yesterday and accidentally ended up out on track at Circuit of the Americas’ Turn 6, halting a Formula 4 support race for the Lone Star Le Mans weekend. Oops!
When Formula One switched to a smaller, quieter engine, many fans reacted as if they had just switched to spec Toyota Priuses. The message was loud and clear: we love noise. Fortunately, one of F1's main feeder series still brings the roar loud and clear: the World Series Formula V8 3.5. Holy crap, it is glorious.

The World Endurance Championship has a strange two-year-long season next year as it transitions to a winter schedule that ends with Le Mans. Now they’ve confirmed the final date on that calendar: the 6 Hours of Silverstone will return on August 29, 2018.
Renault will drop Red Bull as an F1 engine customer after 2018, reports Auto Motor und Sport. While that stoked fears that Red Bull might be saddled with Honda as their only engine option, Red Bull hinted to Sky Sports that they have “existing relationship” with a motor manufacturer who can hook them up in Renault’s…
Standout Toro Rosso driver (which isn’t hard to do alongside Daniil Kvyat) Carlos Sainz Jr. will be loaned out to Renault for 2018, the team confirmed today. Sainz’s loan to Renault is widely believed to be the deal that let Toro Rosso end their power unit supply contract with Renault early, so naturally, it was…
For the past three years, Honda has been like the scumbag boyfriend of Formula One. Oooooooh, girllllllll. You’re still with him? He always promises to do so much, but like, never does it. I can’t believe you haven’t kicked his lazy butt to the curb yet! Good news, everyone: McLaren finally announced their split from…
