It’s impossible to determine the craziest part of this figure-eight racing fight from Anderson Speedway in Indiana. It’s just a magical cornucopia of race car belligerence that must be appreciated in its entirety. It ends with one car on top of the other, one driver getting tased and both drivers involved getting…
If there’s one driver that has been missed in Formula One, it’s certainly 2009 world champion Jenson Button. Button isn’t done with racing yet, but won’t be making a full-time return to F1. Now he’s named two other series he won’t be trying in F1's place: Formula E and IndyCar, which “scares the shit” out of him.
Finally, crash-tacular Talladega Superspeedway delivered a handful of exciting crash-free laps at the very end of today’s NASCAR Cup Series race. Only 14 cars survived until the very end of the race, with Brad Keselowski ultimately finishing out in front.
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.
The world is a scary, divisive place right now, and it can be hard to even carry on a friendly conversation with other Jalops right now. Thankfully, our Onion-scented friends at The Morning Sweat have stumbled upon the one thing that can truly unite us: race cars.
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.
In a retirement season where little has gone right for him, Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be starting from pole position for today’s Alabama 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. Despite having won at Talladega six times before, this is his first-ever pole position at the track.
There have been plenty of examples of races ending under a safety car, red flag, or in a crash. Yet somehow the World Endurance Championship’s 6 Hours of Fuji out-weirded them all. Drivers scrambled back to their cars to race for the final 10 minutes only to have the restart called off with everyone about to leave.
Part-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver and occasional Jalopnik contributor Parker Kligerman just surprised everybody and won at Talladega Superspeedway. When trucks started to pile up behind him on the last lap, he simply drove away from it to nab his second career NCWTS win at ‘Dega.
NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt Jr. got the best retirement present ever Friday afternoon from a track that he considers his “second home.” Talladega Superspeedway gave him the No. 2 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by his father for his rookie 1979 Cup Series season and his first championship in 1980.
Finally, Formula One is asking its fans what they want by asking them directly in the places where they go. This week, a representative from Formula One Management hopped on Reddit to ask what they want in terms of digital content. The answer Redditors gave was pretty clear: stream the races, duh.
Former American Le Mans Series champion Scott Tucker was convicted Friday of racketeering charges related to the payday lending business which funded his highly successful Level 5 Motorsports racing team, reports Bloomberg. Predatory loans made by Tucker’s company had interest rates that sometimes exceeded 700…
After Formula One pulled off the deal of the century to allow McLaren to swap its busted Honda engines for Renault ones, Toro Rosso’s standout driver Carlos Sainz Jr. will leave the team for Renault early, starting with the United States Grand Prix. So, naturally, Toro Rosso gets a Le Mans champ to fill in. Rad.
Formula One’s new Liberty Media overlords are as tired of seeing only a handful of F1 teams ever win, as many of us are. Smaller teams can’t compete with the big-budget efforts at the front of the grid, so F1 may enact a budget cap, reports Racer. Teams expect to receive a budget cap proposal by the end of the year.
One run at Byron Dragway’s World Power Wheel Standing Championship—which delightfully is a real thing that exists—went very wrong for driver Jason Schubert. Schubert’s 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass veered off-course and into the wall, tumbling several times after the hit.
There’s nothing worse in a car than slippery race shoes. Drivers, including Supercars racer Dean Fiore, go to great lengths to avoid having wet shoes in the car. Forget wrapping your shoes in a sad little baggie, though. Fiore showed us the ultimate way to stay dry during last weekend’s Bathurst 1000.
It finally happened, you guys. Someone finally bested the dude who eats gross stuff at church camp in the Great Prank-Off Of Life Itself: Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. The Red Bull Racing drivers have brought hijinks that wouldn’t be out of place in your tenth grade homeroom to their post-race obligations at…
Sonoma Raceway may have escaped harm from the recent wildfires in the area, but drivers at Thunderhill Raceway Park found out just how bad the fire risk is in California this weekend. A racer at the National Auto Sport Association’s Western States Championships went off the pavement, sparking a grass fire that lasted…
