  • OH OH OH… That Was Close (GIF)

    OH OH OH… That Was Close (GIF)

    A sports car turned uncontrollable hover craft, coming around the corner at plus-speeds, almost certainly caused this roadside worker to soil himself. Luckily for the worker, that tree was in the way to allow him to narrowly escape a crushing death. Not so lucky for the driver, the tree was in the way to block […]

  • Helio Castroneves’ Epic Post-Race Blow-Up In Edmonton (Video)

    Helio Castroneves’ Epic Post-Race Blow-Up In Edmonton (Video)

    As elegant as he is on the dance floor, Helio Castroneves showed that he can still be a little rough around the edges at the race track.  The Dancing With The Stars: Season 5 winner was the first to cross the finish line at yesterday’s Honda Edmonton Indy, but was penalized for blocking his own […]

  • Spectators And Marshals Narrowly Escape Out-Of-Control Race Car (Video)

    Spectators And Marshals Narrowly Escape Out-Of-Control Race Car (Video)

    As dangerous as auto racing can be for the drivers, at times it can be equally dangerous for the fans in attendance.  That was the case during Sunday’s Seat Leon SuperCup race at Britain’s Brands Hatch racetrack, after the car of Portuguese driver Francisco Carvalho spun out of control and flipped over the track-side barrier […]

  • Picture of the Day: All Right, Whose Mazda Is That?

    Picture of the Day: All Right, Whose Mazda Is That?

    So…which car do you think this dude was trading-in? Or did the security guard fall asleep before this guy pulled his awesome ride into the lot? I think he’s trying to sweet talk that chick in the picture. “Yo baby, yeah those other cars are sweet but I get 34 MPG.” This is almost as […]

  • Bugatti Veyron Toy Costs More Than Real Car

    Bugatti Veyron Toy Costs More Than Real Car

    You know how some parents dramatically present their newly 16-year-old kids a toy car to tease them and basically cement their places in history as a pair of the douchiest parentals? It’s usually a dirty trick pulled by the parents who truly can’t afford to buy their kid a car. Of course, the parents think […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Hey I’m Standing Here

    Picture Of The Day: Hey I’m Standing Here

    In hockey when you make a sharp stop close to somebody and the snow is sprayed up into them it’s called “icing” or “snowing” them.  In Dirt Car racing, I guess it’d called “dirtying.”  Perhaps this guy should have gotten off the track before the race started.  Now this white male looks like he’s african-american.

  • Ready, Set,……Pass Out?

    Ready, Set,……Pass Out?

    Standing around and holding up a sign can sure be draining on the body.  Heck, it was enough to make this hot female pass out.  Maybe she was just getting bored and looking for a way out.  If that’s the case, it certainly seemed to work! As for the driver in the car, does one’s […]

  • F1 Car Takes A Ride On The White Sands Of The Dominican

    F1 Car Takes A Ride On The White Sands Of The Dominican

    Here is an idea.  Why not stage one Formula One race each year on the beautiful white sands of the Dominican Republic?  Think of the possibilities!  More cars will spin out of control, the sexy female spectators will don their sexy little bikinis, and the donuts performed by the champion at the end of the […]

  • Drag Race Interrupted When Small Aircraft Crashes Into SUV

    Drag Race Interrupted When Small Aircraft Crashes Into SUV

    When it comes to drag racing, crashes have become a common occurrence, however, those crashes usually involve the cars doing the racing.  But if there is anything else we have become accustomed to in the world of motor sports, it is to always expect the unexpected. I don’t think it gets any more unexpected than […]

  • 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. […]

  • 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)

    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)

    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 […]
