Rejoice! NASCAR’s regular season is back, ready to fill that empty hole in your heart with cars once more. You know, much like how their second-tier Xfinity Series filled the entire width of Daytona International Speedway with crashed cars this afternoon. The race ended after five overtime restarts in a photo finish…
Rally is the fine art of blasting down narrow stage roads as fast as possible, and cars are usually spaced pretty far apart to allow that to happen. As such, the World Rally Championship can go years without anyone crashing in a pass, but it happened at Rally Sweden.
Former NASCAR and Formula 1 racer Scott Speed has been suspended from popular simulation racing game iRacing after footage of him attempting to intentionally crash into other players surfaced.
This is why you should never stand outside of a corner on an active rally stage: You could get very, very hurt.
I know we like to say that the racing year in United States starts with a bang, but we meant the figurative “bang” that is one of the world’s toughest day-long races. Not a physical bang caused by crashing out on the formation lap.
The famed 11-foot-8 bridge, affectionately known as ‘the can-opener bridge’, is a train trestle in Durham, North Carolina that has been tearing the tops off of unsuspecting rental trucks for years. This particular crash happened on New Year’s Eve, and the trend doesn’t show any signs of ending in 2018, so hold on to…
Dakar Rally rookie and truck jump record-setting badass Bryce Menzies was involved in a major crash on the second day of the 14-day-long rally. Menzies, whose extensive off-road racing experience made him the best hope for an American to win this year, crashed less than four miles into today’s stage out of fourth…
Youtheory Racing’s No. 55 truck sent a wheel flying across a desert when their truck landed nose-first into the dirt while trying to qualify for the Pahrump Nugget 250 Best in the Desert race. No one was hurt, but it just looks like a ridiculous trucksplosion.
Porsche’s attempt to end their Le Mans prototype program with a win like their sister-marque Audi did last year isn’t going so hot. The No. 1 Porsche 919 LMP1 collided with the No. 86 Gulf Racing Porsche 911 in LM GTE Am, taking it out of the overall lead and handing it right away to the No. 8 Toyota right behind it.
Somewhere a beaver is looking at this ridiculous Macau Grand Prix pile-up and thinking, “man, I wish I my dams were that effective.” All but four cars in the FIA GT World Cup qualifying race got crammed into one corner after a crash near the front of the field acted as an impromptu car-dam, blocking all exits.
I’m not sure what was crazier—Denny Hamlin crashing out Chase Elliott to momentarily snatch the lead in the last laps of today’s NASCAR Cup playoff race at Martinsville Speedway, or the final restart that resulted in most of the field behind the leaders crashing. Then a fan tried to pick a fight with Hamlin!
It’s official: Talladega’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race is insane this year after a relatively tame start. A third red flag of the night came out after Chase Elliott tried to take advantage of a hole that quickly disappeared at the front of the field, making a big ol’ mess.
Today’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega gave everybody what we all expected: the big one. A 17-car crash piled up behind the top few leaders on lap 172 of 188, red flagging the race for a massive cleanup.
You know what they say: cautions beget cautions. A caution called for minor contact involving Trevor Bayne, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Daniel Suarez resulted in one heck of a messy restart with 33 laps to go that took out numerous cars in the rear of the field.
Talladega’s NASCAR Cup race didn’t start off well for playoff contender Jamie McMurray. Two-time Talladega winner Jamie McMurray’s No. 1 tried to come into the pits but traffic around him didn’t expect it, causing a collision.
NASCAR playoffs contender Kevin Harvick spun while battling Austin Dillon for position during today’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Harvick lit up his rear tires trying to stay out of the wall, but the cloud of smoke from his big burnout kept other drivers from being able to see what was in front of him and…
It looked like campionship leader Martin Truex Jr. would cruise home to an easy win at Richmond International Raceway until Derrike Cope touched the wall with three laps to go. But he didn’t end up winning tonight—Kyle Larson did. Now the playoff grid is set and we’ll see if Truex gets upset there as well.
The NASCAR Cup Series just had a bizarre bottleneck heading into pit lane. A yellow flag came out after Austin Dillon spun out Danica Patrick, so everyone was flooding into the open pits. Problem is, there was an out of place ambulance in their way and the ensuing crash took a championship hopeful out of the race.
Another year of NASCAR Camping World Trucks at Mosport, another hit-to-win ending. This year was at least less dramatic than last year’s shove into the wall followed by a fistfight, but it was still a totally classless bump and run by a driver who quite frankly should know better.
“That’s been the name of this championship: avoid the No. 31 car,” said newly-crowned 2017 Pirelli World Challenge SprintX champion and Cadillac ATS-V.R driver Michael Cooper. Unfortunately, Turn 2 of today’s SprintX championship decider told him what happens when you don’t avoid No. 31.
