  • Look for a few more Sprint Cup winners in regular season, but not many

    The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series just came out of its first “off” weekend of the 2014 race season and heads into Richmond (Va.) International Raceway for night racing this upcoming Saturday. The first eight races saw seven different winners in the first year of a new NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup system that places more emphasis on winning when it comes to getting into the Chase. The new “win and you’re in” mentality is probably at least partly to credit for the high number of different faces showing up in victory lane early on in season. The string of different…
  • NASCAR’s Spring Break Arrives After Intriguing Start

    The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has its own version of spring break and it has arrived, with the traditional Easter weekend hiatus. It’s time for a bit of rest, relaxation – and examination regarding the first eight races of the 2014 season. In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a lot going on, starting with the unreal level of parity that has made predictability an outdated term. Much has been said and written about the seven different winners to start the season, a streak broken this past weekend at Darlington Raceway when Kevin Harvick became the year’s first two-time winner.
  • Chase Elliott vs. Kyle Larson: future Sprint Cup rivals?

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:29 am
    Okay, I’ll start off by saying that I’m willing to be the first to admit that I was wrong about that decision by Chip Ganassi to move Kyle Larson up to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for 2014 to replace the departed Juan Pablo Montoya in the No. 42 Chevrolet. Soon after the announcement was made last fall, I proclaimed that it was two early and that, perhaps, Larson would suffer the same adjustment problems suffered by Joey Logano early on in his Sprint Cup career. Logano has said publicly that he made the jump too early. Admittedly, I thought Larson was making the same mistake.

Ricciardo beat Sebastian Vettel for the second consecutive race, outpacing Vettel on the same strategy and eventually finishing 20 seconds clear of his Red Bull teammate. While Horner has said Vettel's struggles are a result of issues getting the car set-up right to make the Pirelli tires last, he was full of praise for the Ricciardo after his opening four races for the team.

Im sure your girlfriend is a sweet person, but she has no clue what shes talking about in this situation.

  • More ECB easing is coming

    22 Apr 2014 | 1:34 pm
    From Credit Agricole: The ECB’s assessment of price and activity conditions was fairly unsurprising. March HICP inflation was dragged down (to a record low of 0.5% YoY) by calendar and base effects; long-term inflation remain anchored; the recovery remains intact despite external risks; and weak credit flows to the private sector are a consequence of the necessary cleaning of banks’ balance sheets. In other words, risks to the medium-term outlook for price stability might be rising, but there is no reason to panic, or so goes the ECB’s narrative. Moreover, the hope remains…

    I mean, if you told me that Jimmie Johnson hadn’t wasn’t going to win anything 8 races into the season, I would have told you that gnomes were real and where could I get one? I know I’m not his biggest fan so I’m not exactly worried about any of this, of course he’ll win something at some point, but it’s still really interesting to watch. While I would have been super excited if Dale Earnhardt Jr. had won the race at Darlington last night, I’m just happy he’s part of the conversation. Honestly, I knew Kevin Harvick had the better car and was…

    Clearly I have missed some races. I watched all of them just haven’t written about them yet. I didn’t go to Fontana yet again which really hurt my heart but I just couldn’t swing it this year. My friend, Heather, went on behalf of The Fast and the Fabulous and took some really amazing photos. Like, really amazing, I think Getty Images should hire her at this point. They’re above, enjoy! In other news… — I don’t know if you knew BUT Kelley Earnhardt-Miller has a podcast called “Fast Lane Family” and it’s pretty great. I’ve only heard one…

    So I just realized that I didn’t write about Phoenix. Whoops! Kevin Harvick totally dominated that race, but there are probably two reasons why I didn’t post anything. 1.) Harvick’s son Keelan wasn’t there to celebrate in victory lane, so it’s not nearly as fun 2) Work is crazy, but you know that because your work is crazy too. Anyway, Las Vegas was kinda sad. I knew Dale Earnhardt Jr. was going to run out of gas and that must be the worst feeling ever. You’re freaking leading and you’re on the LAST LAP and then proof! There goes your win. But…

    Justin signing an autograph before a race last season.   Video:  Justin Makes A Strong First Impression At National Open You had a pretty successful run in the three races you ran with us last season, does that set the bar very high for this year or were those the results you were hoping for? I’ve always wanted to race at Williams Grove more frequently. To run as well as we did at the end of last season was a real honor for not running there much at all in the past. To be a winner there you have to have all the right cards in order. I personally set the bar very high for myself…

    Ryan after his first during the Billy Kimmel Memorial September 1, 2013 VIDEO: Watch Ryan’s First Williams Grove Win What has been the most memorable experience behind the wheel of a car (or in general in your career)? The most memorable experience for me has to be winning the Dream Race at Port Royal Speedway last year. That was our first win of the year, and it had been a long road to get there too. We had a lot of ups and downs throughout the year, and that race really turned things around for us. I am really proud of my guys for sticking by my side and the support from my girlfriend…

  • 18 Personal Road Blocks That Stop You from Achieving Your Goals

    Andrew Tai
    23 Apr 2014 | 7:48 am
    On this long windy road we call life, we encounter adversity, obstacles and road blocks that keep us from achieving our goals. What might seem like a brick wall, stopping our Civic from becoming a Lexus— might in fact only be a detour or a speed bump. So, don’t cancel the trips yet. Of course, I’m just speaking in an analogy for our own personal behaviours and mannerisms. These negativities of body and mind hold us back, compromise our confidence and drain our potential. If we are to become better hagglers or just better at everything there is, we need to know what holds us back. Se,…

    Did you know that American movies are littered with Canadian cars? Believe it or not, Hollywood loves Canada! British Columbia and Ontario are particularly popular among movie producers and directors, with Vancouver and Toronto serving as backdrops for many movies, including X-Men and Mean Girls. As a result, the presence of Canadian cars is unavoidable. If you have a good eye for vehicle brands, you can easily spot the Canuck-made AM General Humvee in 2008’s Incredible Hulk and 2002 Lexus SC 430 in Mean Girls. [Tweet This] And if you’re not from Ontario or British Columbia – don’t…

    The ten-day-long “Auto China 2014” Beijing International Automotive Exhibition has finally kicked off with over a thousand cars on display from favourites like BMW, Mercedes, Audi and more! Despite the recent reports of subpar profits from Chinese auto makers, the McKinsey report states that China may actually surpass the U.S. in terms of car market size by 2016. Big companies, like Rolls-Royce, are aiming to profit from this growth. “China is now one of our leading markets together with the U.S.,” CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos has told CNN. “In 2013, one out of four cars manufactured in…

  • 5 Reasons Why It’s Better to Buy a New Car Than Used

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:11 am
    As a consumer in the market for a new car, the task of finding the right match is no joke. While there is a plethora of cars and manufacturers to choose from, one is also faced with the following question: should I buy a new car or a used one? While conventional opinions have swayed towards buying used vehicles, here are five reasons why it’s actually better to buy a new car. 1. Lower Maintenance Costs The higher the mileage on a car, the more maintenance it is going to require on average, as shown here. Hence, when comparing a new car to a used one, one thing is clear – a new car…
