    Check Out This Motocross Cheapshot (Video)

    Ever see what a motocross cheapshot looks like?  You have now thanks to Mike Alessi, who showed absolutely no regard for the well-being of fellow racer Brock Tickle when he T-boned him around a corner at a recent Atlanta Supercross race. Check it out: So what kind of punishment does accelerating your bike into the side of […]

  • This Day In Sports History (February 18th) — Dale Earnhardt

    This Day In Sports History (February 18th) — Dale Earnhardt

    It was on this day in 2001 that Dale Earnhardt was involved in a fatal crash at the Daytona 500.  It did not appear to be a major collision at first, but when traveling at speeds of 150 MPH, even a minor accident can prove to be deadly. On the final lap, Earnhardt’s #3 car was […]

    Rally Car Worker Gets Hit in the Groin With Debris (GIF)

    Working trackside at a rally car race can be awfully dangerous at times.  The biggest worry one faces would have to be getting hit by an out-of-control vehicle that is traveling a high speeds.  And coming in at a close second is the fear of getting pelted in the groin by rocks and other debris […]

    This Day In Sports History (May 3rd) – Big Brown

    It was on this day in 2008 that Big Brown won the 134th running of the Kentucky Derby.  Big Brown entered the race as a 2-1 favorite and would defeat Eight Belles by four and three-quarter lengths. After finishing in second place, three year old philly Eight Belles was euthanized immediately following the race due […]

    Dan Wheldon Dies In Fatal Crash At Las Vegas Indy 300 (Video)

    Yesterday’s Las Vegas Indy 300 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway was supposed to be the last race of the 2011 IndyCar season, but no one expected it to be the last race of Dan Wheldon’s life.  Sadly, that tragic scenario unfolded during the eleventh lap of the race, as Wheldon died following a fatal […]

    Picture Of The Day: I Think You’re Doing It Wrong

    I am going to go out on a limb here and assume that this motorcycle racer probably didn’t intend on performing a handstand while his bike slides across the track upside down.  And while this odd maneuver looks awfully cool when captured in a still-frame by a camera, it probably didn’t feel all that cool […]

    Cyclist Going 60 MPH Behind A Truck (Video)

    Hey, everybody loves going fast on their bikes. But damn, there are limits, you know? Well, most of us have limits. The cyclist in this video? Not so much. What you’re looking at here is a very extreme case of drafting. Drafting is when one vehicle or moving object lines up directly behind another vehicle […]

    Picture Of The Day: Indy 500 Planking

    With rain washing out some of this week’s practice runs leading up to Sunday’s much anticipated Indy 500, many of the drivers took to their garages to take part in a competition that has seemingly captured the attention of most IndyCar teams and drivers. It’s called “planking,” and according to Wikipedia, it involves “the action […]

    Picture Of The Day: I’m Outta Here!

    Good call brother! That boat looks awfully hot.  As for the water, it looks quite refreshing.  Therefore, I think I would rather take my chances with the water in this case, and worry about the sharks later.  It appears as though this guy was thinking the same thing.

    Picture Of The Day: You Dropped Something!

    I’m no mechanic, but I am fairly certain that you need two tires in order to properly ride a motorcycle.  In that case, I’d hate to see how things turned out five seconds after this image was taken. This probably isn’t a great way for Pirelli to advertise their tires.  After all, I don’t believe […]

    The 9 Worst Formula 1 Crash Videos

    Ahh, motorsports. Rarely do we find ourselves so often rooting for misfortune, then feeling like horrible, horrible people when it happens. Well, I’m here to eliminate the middleman. These crashes have already taken place, so you don’t need to hope for them, which means you don’t need to feel bad about them when you watch […]

    Why Racing Is Best Left To Professionals (GIF)

    It takes a certain amount of skill to be able to control an automobile traveling almost 200 mph as it dives in and out of every turn on the track.  That is why racing is best left to the professionals, rather than these two street racers who are clearly lacking the necessary skills to control […]
