It wasn’t the sound that was so shocking. It was the air itself that hit me as I stood mere feet from the polycarbonate resin wall that separated people from the 220-pound remotely controlled battling robots inside the combat arena.
The North Wilkesboro Speedway opened in 1947, nearly a year before NASCAR was founded. The short track near moonshine country was where the first NASCAR champion, Robert "Red" Byron, was crowned. Today, five years after being abandoned, the historic speedway is just a rotting pile of sticks, crooked chairs, and…
Forget parachuting from space, nothing captures the blistering speed and the lurking presence of death like a high-speed drop down a mountain chute. Watch what it's like to ski down the Earth's frozen ass crack from the perspective of world-class winter athlete Cody Townsend.
Chevy Rep Rikk Wilde was a little nervous presenting the World Series MVP award on Wednesday, stammering through a slogan for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado he made up on the spot; "technology and stuff." But after the phrase and #ChevyGuy started trending on Twitter, the company went ahead and ran with it.
Airbus has announced that it will collaborate with the defending champion of the America's Cup, Oracle Team USA to design the next yacht for the team. But why would a company that designs and builds commercial jets want to get into the sport of yacht racing? It makes more sense than you might think.
Here, visualized, the results of a poll that are as interesting as they are unscientific. Click expand and commence arguing over what makes something a sport as opposed to a game or an activity.

The timeless, Twinky-esque beauty of a classic Airstream trailer is even sweeter with a US Men's World Cup Team wrap job.
Soccer is a twenty-two-player competitive ball game (CBG). Soccer has been in development for two thousand years. Soccer has been an Olympic event since 1900.
Los Angeles is totally jacked up over their Stanley Cup victory just a few days ago, and might have had the coolest "trophy transport truck" of any sports victory parade I've seen.
You know what the young Youths these days love? That's right, soccer. And you know where they live? That's right, Greenpoint, Brooklyn. And you know what they drive? The Audi A8, with a base MSRP of $75,100. So Audi just installed a giant scoreboard made up of 28 of them in (where else) Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
If you're wondering how this snowboarder is moving so fast on flat ground, the answer is simple. He's holding powerful jet thrusters in his hands. Yes, jet thrusters. This is awesome.

This whole GoPro video, showing riders Ken Roczen and Ryan Villopoto duking it out for the lead at the 450SX Class Supercross race at the Georgia Dome earlier this week, is insane.
We would never deign to call an Olympic sport "easy." Eating muffins is easy. Sports at least require some motion. But if you, the average non-Olympic athlete, really needed to make the Olympic team in a pinch, you would clearly choose bobsled as your "sport."
Rosalee Ramer, from Watsonville, CA., is a teenager on a monster truck mission. "It's something that I've dreamed about, and I'm finally doing it. Going over the jumps, sometimes 25 to 30 feet in the air, I feel like I'm flying," the 16-year-old badass — did we mention she's a badass? — said.
