    We are all aware of the tough financial climate that we currently live in. Times are hard world wide, including the world of motorsports. You only have to look at the empty stands at the German Grand Prix recently to see the effect. It’s much the same the whole world over. Look at the empty seats in NASCAR these days. Not that long ago, that would have been unheard of. The obvious ... Keep reading

    .... Ой!!!!.... Зачем наша героическая украинская армия, несущая шлейф славных побед с тех самых " 100 подвигов УПА ", сконцентрировала своё боевое внимание на месте падения обломков Boeing 777 ?!  Чтоб, как говорят эти повстанцы, "Киевские власти развязали бои рядом с местом падения Boeing 777, чтобы уйти от разоблачения"???! Ложь!!!

    Sunday morning we, Heather and I, woke up at the insane hour of 5-o-clock. We had to get to the track when it opened because we wanted to get a pace car ride with Brett Bodine. It was Heather’s first time on a ride with him and it didn’t disappoint. You don’t wear a helmet and your body is thrown against the door every time we make a turn. It’s crazy and so much fun. It’s amazing that I do it considering I hate roller coasters. I think it’s because Brett is in such control and is so freaking calm. It’s like he’s just driving down the street to get groceries and not…

    So here’s the deal: I helped the Downtown Napa Association get a NASCAR driver to do an appearance at their Napa NASCAR Night event. I made it my personal mission to get at least one driver to attend because it’s just a great idea, there’s no other free fan event happening during the Sonoma race weekend. Plus someone said it would be nearly impossible to get a driver out there so that motivated me even more. Michael Annett and Reed Sorenson graciously accepted our invitation to come down and sign autographs for fans. We were supposed to do a Q&A session but it just…

    My friend Heather came up from Southern California for the race weekend at Sonoma Raceway. It was her first time to the track and we were super excited for the race. It was great to have Heather there especially since Kristen, the person I usually hung out with at Sonoma, moved to North Carolina last year. She also served in a professional capacity as my photographer. So anyway, we arrived at the track bright and early on Friday morning. I hadn’t been to a race in a year which feels really wrong to me. I have to go to more races this year, you guys. Because of the new knockout…

    7/5/14 The Daytona 500, the first race to start each NASCAR season, is the granddaddy of NASCAR races. However it is not the only race run at the Daytona International Speedway throughout the course of the season. Tonight NASCARs elite return to Daytona for a point’s race that is as important as any other, yet it does not quite stand up to its predecessor. Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the Daytona 500 this year and has been solid since. He starts tonight’s race in the seventh position with team mates Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson close by. If Earnhardt Jr. finds a way to be at the front when…

Jim’s Original is still good, and the Route 66 Nationals are always fun. This year, I went on Saturday and Sunday. Normally I would only go on Saturday, but this year I decided to double the fun. I went with Argie, a friend from work, and I spent Saturday watching racing and wandering through the pits. NHRA tickets promise that “every ticket is a pit pass” and trust me, they more…

Hence, depending on the good use we give, our clutch end up breaking later or later and we will change it. Fortunately, the operating…

  • Does GM Have a Rust Problem?

    30 Jul 2014 | 11:14 am
    Like many other manufacturers, General Motors offers a rust warranty on all their vehicles, but don’t get too attached to it – because it won’t last. What is a rust warranty? It’s a way of making sure your car stays rust-protected for a certain period of time – until the warranty runs out. After that, you’re on your own. Many dealerships usually sell this warranty with rust-proofing – a method of protecting your car from corrosion. There are several different methods of rust protection, with the most common ones being either by a way of dripless oil or an electric module. For…

The four-door MINI Cooper Countryman was the only small car that secured the “good” rating. Five cars were deemed “average,” two cars “marginal” and four cars attained a “poor” rating. According to Joe Nolan, a senior vice president for the IIHS, the Countryman gave a solid performance. The safety cage held up reasonably well, and the safety belts and airbags worked together to control the test…

The Swedish auto has described these safety features as “world-first” and plans to showcase them within the new XC90 luxury SUV, which will be revealed next month.

    The 2015 Hyundai Sonata has only just launched, but it’s already going through a second recall. This time, the new sedan gets pulled for fracturing brake calipers. Hyundai’s recall campaign is poised to remove 5,650 Sonatas from the streets in total. According to the company, one or both of the front brake calipers can facture due to a “manufacturing error.” However, the South Korean automaker promises to replace the parts through its dealer network free of charge as soon as possible. The issue came to the forefront when one of the customers has reportedly complained that the brake…

    The 2014 Jeep Cherokee may not look pretty, but it can traverse any surface you put it on, while saving fuel and offering plenty of cabin space. When it comes to the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, buyers must be willing to set aside first impressions and take the time to drive the vehicle — preferably on an unpaved, snow-covered and steep road. This mid-size SUV does not carry the external DNA of most other Jeeps, but once you get behind the wheel, there will be no confusing the brand at your fingertips.
