    Fans Cheat Death After Scary MINI Challenge Crash (Video)

    Sitting field-side at an Arena Football League game may be painful at times, but it is like child’s play when compared to the dangers of being track-side at just about any motor sports race.  That is the case, even when the vehicles hustling around the track are as tiny as a MINI. During the Ipswich […]

  • F1 Car Loses Both Front Tires (Video)

    F1 Car Loses Both Front Tires (Video)

    It is not the scariest thing we have seen occur on a race track before, but when both tires exploded off the Toro Rosso car of F1 driver Sebastien Buemi, it was still quite the unusual scene.  Losing one tire is crazy enough, but when both simultaneously abandon your car as it screams down a […]

  • Picture Of The Day: At Least He Wore A Helmet

    Picture Of The Day: At Least He Wore A Helmet

    If you’re squeamish then prepare your stomach to feel unsettled.  Growing up, one of my biggest fears, oddly enough, was having one of my limbs run over by my brothers’ Schwinn.  I could never imagine falling off my bike only to then get run over by a much higher powered crotch rocket that followed close behind. […]

  • Dirt Bike Glides On Water (GIF)

    Dirt Bike Glides On Water (GIF)

    I was always pretty sure of the fact that dirt bikes were made for the dirt.  So what happens when you ride them on water?  You would think the logical guess would be that they would sink, but this guy proves that is not entirely the case.  At least not if you know what you […]

  • Japan’s Odd Sport of Tandem Scootering (Video)

    Japan’s Odd Sport of Tandem Scootering (Video)

    The Japanese have a knack for being technologically advanced, but I don’t think tandem scooter racing is going to catch on in the United States any time in the near or distant future. Here are pictures from the Osu’s Rider Cup that takes place a few times every year on a go-kart-ish track.  Yes, your […]

    Great Motorcycle Save (GIF)

    When it comes to great saves in sports, you will often hear people referring to those seen in soccer or hockey games.  But what about motorcycle racing? This guy proves that you don’t need to be a goalie to make a great save, as he finds himself moments away from a rather scary crash on […]

  • Bikers Take Most Dangerous Ride Ever (Video)

    Bikers Take Most Dangerous Ride Ever (Video)

    This video is amazing in and of itself. But it leaves me wondering — did they find some peyote up in the hills and eat it? Is someone paying them to take this ride? Are they just clinically insane? I wouldn’t even walk this trail, let alone ride a dirt bike on it. I’m all […]

  • Aaaaand, He still makes the shot! (GIF)

    Aaaaand, He still makes the shot! (GIF)

    “Safe by an inch.” It is a phrase you may often hear at a baseball game, but sometimes it is just as applicable in rally car racing.  As a case in point, we bring you this guy, who thought he was getting a great view, but almost ended up becoming the main focus.  Luckily he […]

    Awesome Street Drift (GIF)

    This image of “the perfect drift” on the streets at night should be enough to make any rally car racer proud.  After all, if they all had skills like this, there would likely be a lot less spectators getting hit and cars falling off cliffs.  Unfortunately, not everyone can be this good. It really is […]

    Motor racing accidents always tend to provide viewers with a certain sense of amazement, but what can be even more astounding is capturing these crashes at the perfect moment with a single snap of the camera.  That is what we have here, and the result is a rather humorous demotivational poster. The photographer was able […]

  • Mother And Daughter Nailed By Out-Of-Control Rally Car

    Mother And Daughter Nailed By Out-Of-Control Rally Car

    We have asked this question before; why is it that people are allowed to stand so close to the track during rally car races, with so little protection guarding them from the possibility of being hit? And once again, such questions resurfaced after a scary incident during a race in Spain, where a mother and […]

  • Some Bad Luck Results In Nasty Supercross Crash (Video)

    Some Bad Luck Results In Nasty Supercross Crash (Video)

    With several riders speeding around a dirt track at high speeds, looking to take advantage of every possible millisecond they can, it is amazing that we do not bear witness to more crashes during these AMA Supercross events. However, when disaster does strike, it can be quite the frightening incident.  Take last Saturday’s 2010 Monster […]

    Danica Patrick is Weird Science (Super Bowl Commercial)

    After I saw Weird Science for the first time, I dreamt that I could get a hot 80′s babe to come make me feel good about myself.  After seeing the latest Danica Patrick, GoDaddy.com, 80′s-styled commercial, I was instantly reminded of Weird Science and all the things I’d do for a skimpily clad Danica P. lookalike to bust […]

    Subaru WRX Pulls Semi-truck Out of Snow with Ease (Video)

    Subaru’s are good cars in a lot of ways.  They can be raced at high speeds and have had some success.  On a personal use level, they are affordable and quality automobiles.  And this crazy guy can probably imitate the sounds they make.  None of that really fully allows us to appreciate what they can […]

    Guy Mimics Car and Engine Sounds Perfectly (Video)

    If you were going to make a list of impressive skills that people had, I’m guessing “mimicking car sounds” would not be high on that list.  That was before you heard this kid do his thing.  I’m not a car guy to the extent that I can tell what kind of car is coming just […]
