    With NASCAR officials focusing on engine changes in the Sprint Cup Series for 2015 that will result in a reduction of horsepower, such a move should involve "a restriction on the intake side," according to Sprint Cup Series team co-owner Jack Roush. "(It is) straightforward and it is easily reversible if you decided that the quality of the racing was hurt by it," Roush told NASCAR.com during the Sprint Cup Series stop at Darlington Raceway on April 12.

  • NASCAR’s Spring Break Arrives After Intriguing Start

    17 Apr 2014 | 10:18 am
    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you hadn’t noticed, there’s a lot going on, starting with the unreal level of parity that has made predictability an outdated term.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.

    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.

    NASCAR’s new criteria for getting into the Chase for the Sprint Cup doesn’t completely diminish the value of points. After all, once slots are filled with race-winning drivers, the rest of the 16 driver/car field is to be filled according to the points standings. And, of course, there is the Chase spot reserved for the points leader after the Chase cut-off race at Richmond (Va.) International Speedway in September, race winner or not. But it looks like the 2014 race season is shaping up to possibly provide other scenarios for which points may come into play when it comes to…

Set to make its debut in September, the new two-seater indirectly replaces the SLS AMG, becoming the second stand-alone model to be engineered by Mercedes-Benz’s AMG performance car off-shoot at its headquarters in Affalterbach on the outskirts of Stuttgart, Germany.

Additional fees are charged when loans are rolled over. Payday loans, also known as cash advances or check loans, are short-term loans at high interest rates, usually for $500 or less.

      Хотите стать политическим Нострадамусом или бабкой Вангой?  Легко. Просто после получения какой-нибудь новости сами себя спросите,  Вот, к примеру, Радио Свободы оповестило нас - первый вице-премьер-министр Украины Виталий Ярема заявил, что страны Запада требуют от Украины прекратить сотрудничество с Россией…

Но трудиться  герою  можно теперь только на лёгком, на умственном труде. Митрич выбрал музыкальное поприще. Когда-то в детстве его…

С небольшими различиями, но очень похоже. Очень. Захватывают здания гор и обладминистраций, пихаются с…

    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!

    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…

    So this video is absolutely wonderful and totally worth your time to watch. The details! Last year Jeff Gordon took an unassuming passenger for the ride of his life in the now familiar Test Drive video. While it received 40 million views, not everyone was convinced, especially Travis Okulski of Jalopnik, who posted a few stories calling the video FAKE. Well Jeff Gordon and Pepsi MAX took Travis’ words to heart and decided to do something to get back at Travis. Check it out. Between this and the awesome video they had Jeff Gordon make for me a couple years ago, Pepsi MAX is hitting it…

Jorge Lorenzo was the first to go, tucking the front on the first lap after getting a drive out of the corner that surprised him. Five laps later, Stefan Bradl went in a similar fashion.

  • Aggressive Setups Cause Consternation In Sunday’s Race At Fontana

    Drivers who fared well in Sunday’s Auto Club 400, including race winner Kyle Busch, were happy with the tires Goodyear provided for the fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event of the season. Drivers whose fortunes soured because of tire problems at Auto Club Speedway were more than ready to play the blame game. For the record, tire maker Goodyear recommended a minimum 22 pounds of air pressure in the left front tires and 20 in the left rears. Teams routinely run tire pressures below the recommended minimums in an effort to increase grip and speed, but many of those who did so Sunday paid the…

    In a race that saw tire problems turn the contest upside-down, Kyle Busch won Sunday’s Auto Club 400 in a green-white-checkered-flag finish that took the fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event of the year six laps past its scheduled distance. The first driver on four fresh tires for a restart on Lap 205 at Auto Club Speedway, Busch passed Stewart-Haas Racing teammates Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart on the next-to-last lap, bringing rookie Kyle Larson with him. Able to keep Larson behind him on the final lap, Busch crossed the finish line .214 seconds ahead of the 21-year-old, who had won the…

    Deaths in racing…. With the recent death of a young driver in Fla. I have been thinking about things that could be done to improve the safety in racing, and the one thing that has been glaring me in the face all day is this…. Tracks and promoters HAVE GOT TO TAKE ACTION! Now days promoters are opening the tracks simply cause they see it as a way to make a few quick bucks, and they have a real “to hell with safety” attitude and it has to stop. Race tracks have been slowing backing out of the technical inspections of race cars over the last couple years, as more tracks shirk the…

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

    Andrew Tai
    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…
  • 1956 Is When Self-Driving Cars First Appeared

    Imagine your car speeding along the highway, its steering and speed being automatically controlled by electronic sensors, while you just sit back and relax. Making travel more enjoyable and safer, self-driving cars should in theory rid the world of traffic jams, collisions and driver fatigue. The funny par is that they still sound like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, but the truth is that they are here now – and they are fully functional. What’s even more baffling is that they have actually been around for decades, originally appearing as far back as 1956. The Concept Has Been…

    If you’ve ever been angry or sad on the road, you would know that those simple human emotions can impair your driving abilities. Road rage and teary eyes can cause traffic accidents and severe consequences. We know how bad our tempers can get, because 80% of Canadians have admitted to hostile driving due to rage. You can get more info on this statistic here. So, wouldn’t it be nice if our cars could calm us down when that Volkswagen cuts us off or the driver of that Ford decides to make an illegal left turn during rush hour? That’s what an in-car emotion detector is capable of…
  • Bugatti Black Bess To Debut At 2014 Beijing Auto Show

    13 Apr 2014 | 2:54 pm
    Bugatti will unveil the fifth and penultimate car in its six-part Legends Series – the Black Bess – at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show. The new car is meant to pay tribute to the old Bugatti Type 18, but it is actually based on a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. Like the other Bugattis in the Legends Series, the Black Bess will come with an 8-litre W16 engine, 1184 brake horsepower and top speed of 254 miles per hour, which effectively puts it above every single convertible in the world in terms of speed. As a result, the car will cost over two million euros, so if you can only afford a…

    Scion will show off the new Release Series, vol. 10.0 of the xB model at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. The Scion xB has been around since 2003, being one of the first box-shaped cars like the Kia Soul and Nissan Cube. The car hasn’t changed much since its creation, but Scion has tried to freshen it up with what it calls a “Release Series,” which basically involves limited-edition colours and accessories. Those unique features are Piano black interior accents on the central console, vent and steering wheel rings, lit door sills with the Scion name, Tungsten Grey coloured…
