    The #19 Porsche 919 Hybrid emerged victorious at this weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France, ending Audi’s 5-year winning streak.  But the car that everyone is talking about today is JMW Motorsport’s #66 Ferrari 458 Italia, which burst into flames during a pit stop late in the night.

    Robby Gordon Runs Over Spectator at Baja 500 (Video)

    Apparently safety was not a concern during last weekend’s SCORE Baja 500, as the race featured two separate accidents involving spectators. One of those incidents saw a truck lose control and hit eight spectators.  Thankfully, none of them were seriously injured. As for the other incident, it involved former NASCAR driver Robby Gordon, who hit an […]

    The NASCAR track workers at Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series Race in Atlanta weren’t all that busy, having to deal with just two crashes all afternoon.  But they also had to battle a one-hour delay at the start due to morning showers and 43 degree temperatures throughout the course of the race. Those nasty wether conditions seemed to […]

    Please enable Javascript to watch this video Here is an idea!  Rather than measuring the power of a car using horsepower, perhaps all cars should be measured according to how many buttons that can pop off the top of a gorgeous busty female.  According to that measurement system, this souped-up Toyota Supra’s button-popping power would […]

    During Wednesday’s practice session at the Daytona 500, Denny Hamlin bumped the left end of Danica Patrick‘s car and spun her off the track.  That put Danica in a rather precarious position on Thursday, forcing her to come away with a strong finish at the Budweiser Duel No. 2 if she hoped to qualify for this year’s […]

    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.

  • 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 […]

    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 […]

After finishing in second place, three year old philly Eight Belles was euthanized immediately following the race due […]

    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 […]
