After DTM had folded in 1996, Mercedes-AMG entered the 1997 FIA GT Championship season with their CLK GTRs less than half a year after the first sketches were drawn. In order to speed up development, they bought the best car to get technology from: a McLaren F1 GTR.
Crashes almost every lap. A car flipped over and on fire. Cussing on live TV. The best accents in the world. All this and more from the modified stock car race on Tuesday night, the best/worst TV I’ve seen in a long time.

This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that's actually important — all in one place at 9:00 AM. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn't your time more important?
Driveclub is the first racing game for the upcoming Playstation 4, and according to its studio, the socially-oriented racer has been in development for no less than ten years.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.
Before they went belly up, Oldsmobile attempted to cast off the stigma of their previous products with the ad tagline Not your Father’s Oldsmobile. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Olds may actually BE your old man’s Cutlass, but does its price make you say oh man?
Would you pay $4,500 to pass your driving exam? It sounds ludicrous, but more than 100 people in London were willing to fork that over to bribe a driving instructor for a license, according to the BBC. That instructor was arrested earlier today by police, who are investigating a "cash-for-pass" driver's license scam.
Why are we still talking about cars, anyway? They're yesterday's news. They're a relic of the 20th century. (The 19th century, if you want to get technical.) Today, I have seen the future, and it is robot ostriches from Russia.
The Detroit Auto Show took place last month. While we did our best to bring you every little bit of coverage, you might prefer your coverage to be brought to you PBS video style.
In 1949, the first season of what is now called the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series was held. Red Byron won two of his six starts to take the inaugural champoinship in a fresh-from-the-showroom Oldsmobile.

"I think we're gonna need a bigger Ferrari."
Tesla just released their financial statement from the fourth quarter of 2012, and the news is mostly good, a little bad, and all open to interpretation. Isn't everything with Tesla, though?
The French! They're so lazy. They don't want to work, they just want to lay around in their berets eating cheese, drinking wine, making love and losing wars. Not like us hard work-loving Americans. At least, that's the perception that tire company CEO Maurice Taylor has of the French. And he's not afraid to say it.
Pretty new Macca, huh? Here’s an old one, the M20 sports prototype from the waning days of McLaren’s dominance of Can-Am. Fiberglass and aluminum, crazy velocity stacks, F1- and Can-Am champion Denny Hulme at the wheel, who managed to beat the turbocharged Porsche 917’s in the early races of the 1972 season but lost…
