    Furniture Row Racing is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2015, and FRR driver Martin Truex Jr. looks to be helping the team celebrate in the best way possible — a string of top-10 finishes. Okay, I realize a win or two would be better, but Truex and the No. 78 team have four-straight top-10 finishes, so far. That’s four top-10s in the first four races of the season, and when someone runs up front that consistently, wins tend to come along eventually. Given recent performance by Truex and company, a win or two may come sooner rather than later. Oh, and by the way, Truex is third…

NASCAR has confiscated tires the last two weeks, including those of Team Penske driver Joey Logano following the race at Phoenix. Logano and Kevin Harvick's tires both cleared a second inspection.

     Ничего необычного в желании пожилого артиста Вахтанга Кикабидзе понравиться украинской публике накануне гастролей по Украине нет.  И каждый шаг явно выверен его пиа-менеджерами. Где-то как-бы в полголоса в своём интимном кругу Вахтанг Константинович объявил о желании стать беженцем в Украине. Украинские СМИ эту…

     Пока мой обывательский мозг метался неспокойной птичкой над вопросом "где я уже ЭТО видел, где я уже ЭТО видел??", глава МВД Германии напомнил - на киевском Майдане в конце 2013-го, начале 2014-го. Только на Майдане активных боевиков было меньше. И киевские "революционеры"  действовали в условиях отсутствия европейских законов…

     Новостные русскоязычные сайты забиты очередной полупустой новостью: актёр и певец Вахтанг Кикабидзе  решил попросить почему-то политическое убежище и почему-то именно в Украине.  Об этом сам Кикабидзе громко сообщил информагенству УНН.  Убежище Вахтангу Кикабидзе наверняка предоставят. Хотя бы уже за то, что он…

     Сейчас уже не узнать, что было на уме у негра, который голым бежал к белому американскому полицейскому. Может быть всё закончилось бы поцелуями, но могло на поцелуях и не закончиться. Может голый негр просто обознался, неграм белые, как и белым негры - все на одно лицо. Полицейский рисковать не стал. И, вынув свой револьвер,…

  • F1: Melbourne Grand Prix preview

    motorsportnotes
    12 Mar 2015 | 2:31 pm
    The opening race of the 2015 F1 season could be more about what is happening off the track and less about Sunday’s excitement. Sauber, Fernando Alonso and the return of Manor/Marussia are the hot topics ahead of the Melbourne weekend. Race predictions Mercedes are expected to romp home in Melbourne. Little from pre-season testing suggested any teams have closed the gap enough to mount a serious challenge. There is still cause for optimism for the neutrals however. Part 2 of the Hamilton/Rosberg battle is still going to be intriguing. There are points to prove on both sides of the camp and…

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Kurt Busch was cleared Wednesday to get back in his race car and attempt to rebuild a career that was halted two days before the Daytona 500 when NASCAR suspended him for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend. “It’s been torture sitting out of the car,” Busch said in a conference call. He called the allegations against him “a complete fabrication.” “I never did anything of the things I was accused of,” he added. “I never wavered in this whole process because of the confidence in the truth.” Busch missed the…

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR has lifted its suspension of Kurt Busch and says the former champion can compete in the championship Chase should he qualify. Busch missed the first three races of the season when NASCAR suspended him for an alleged domestic assault on his ex-girlfriend. He was suspended two days before the season-opening Daytona 500, and lost two rounds of appeals the day before the race. The Delaware attorney general last week declined to charge Busch for the September incident with Patricia Driscoll. Also last week, NASCAR said Busch was following a path to reinstatement.

  • How to Choose High-Quality Car Upholstery and Avoid Unnecessary Repairs

    24 Mar 2015 | 10:00 am
    Seats are an important if slightly neglected aspect of every vehicle. It’s the part that makes drivers and their passengers feel comfortable, while carrying them to all the places they want to visit. Car engines accomplish the carrying part, but they certainly don’t make you feel cozy. As is the case with chairs and couches, the material covering your seats wears down, which means that eventually you have to change it. However, unlike furniture, you can’t push a car seat to the side of a room; you have to fix it. Car seat upholstery comes in many varieties. Certain fabrics are all…
  • How to Buy a New Car With Very Little Money

    21 Mar 2015 | 2:49 pm
    New cars cost money, which means that not everyone can afford one, as unfortunate as that may sound. Yet many Canadians who cannot afford a car still go right ahead and buy one anyway. How is such a thing possible? Two reasons – loans and impulse shopping. According to a recent survey for Consolidated Credit Counseling Services, 35 per cent of Canadians said that their largest source of consumer debt was buying on impulse. Meanwhile, the average length of a car loan in the country has reached 72 months. If that’s not enough, some dealers offer loans lasting for as long as 96 months, which…

    The car engine is the heart of your vehicle. It seems to be the element car-lovers are most passionate about. You often hear gear heads brag about the incredible new engine they’ve installed. They speak so enthusiastically that you’re inspired to upgrade your engine as well. But hold up! Before you go about swapping your inline four for a straight-six, you better be sure that the new engine would actually suit your vehicle and lifestyle. After all, equipping a vehicle with the finest engine may not be your top priority. If you consider safety and cabin space to be more important, then you…
  • 5 Reasons Why Buying a Used Car May Be a Bad Idea

    Taras Trofimov
    13 Mar 2015 | 4:09 pm
    No matter how you slice it, cars are expensive. Because of this, people continuously look for ways to make them cheaper. One of such ways involves buying used vehicles, which retail for a significantly lower price than new ones. Consumers also prefer used cars because they don’t depreciate quite as quickly new ones. However, the gap between the two in this aspect isn’t as significant as some people believe, rendering this whole reason somewhat moot. And sure, used cars may be cheaper, but they sacrifice several useful perks to be that way, which may cost you money in the long run. In…
  • Is the New Nissan Pathfinder a Terrible SUV?

    Taras Trofimov
    11 Mar 2015 | 11:56 am
    Our review score: 7.8 / 10 In short – no. While the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder is certainly not a rugged off-roader, it is a superb family hauler with a spacious cabin and tons of neat features. So, if that’s what you’re after, then that’s what you’ll get. If you were ever confused as to how a crossover (or CUV) differs from an SUV, look no further than the Nissan Pathfinder for an illustration. It’s a crossover in the truest sense of the word, sporting the “heft” of an SUV, while functioning like a minivan. In other words, the Pathfinder is nowhere near as off-road-ready as its…

    There are many reasons a car maker wouldn’t sell a particular car in America. Some of them just didn’t have a presence here but usually, they didn’t think it would make sense to go through the hassle of crash testing and especially, EPA certification. And while many of the cars we never got things like little diesel commuters or weird little vans, a few were performance cars. If you were building a performance car of some kind in the Seventies and Eighties and didn’t want to sell it in the world’s largest market for performance cars, you must have had a pretty…

    So maybe you were disappointed when Mercedes-Benz and AMG downsized the Mercedes-AMG GT powerplant to 4.0 liters and 503hp. I mean, sure it’s much cheaper than any previous SLS at $129,000, but you can get a 707hp Challenger Hellcat for half that, a 580hp ZL1 Camaro is around $60,000 and the 520hp Shelby GT350 will be in the same neighborhood. Well sir, if you have indeed been feeling let down then Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing have the vehicle for you.

  • Car of the Week: 1978 Ferrari 308 GTB Koenig

    19 Feb 2015 | 3:22 pm
    Ferrari 308s are…nice. People are down with V-8 Ferraris now and Magnum, P.I. made the 308 cool, but it never had the same star power as a V-12. That meant there was an audience of Ferrari buyers who were interested in owning a 308, but wanted to stand out like a V-12 owner. And while you’d have a hard time convincing yourself to modify an $85,000 512 BB, your 308 GTB was a $30,000 car, about the same as a Jaguar XJ-S. Customisers and tuners like König were there. König (sometimes Koenig) is best known for high-end wheels today but they have a serious racing heritage and for…
