    3 Jul 2014 | 1:06 pm
    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…

    30 Jun 2014 | 9:35 am
    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…

It’s going to be awesome to finally attend a race this year. And there’s ANOTHER reason why it’s going to be even more fun than usual.

They’ve created the Napa NASCAR Night event which will take place in Veteran’s Park in Downtown Napa on Saturday, June 21st from 3pm to 9pm. It’s completely free to attend and there’s…

    15 May 2014 | 5:10 pm
    Be honest! Because I’m going to be honest with you and say that I really don’t understand the point of it given the fact that the same drivers are racing every week. Soooo, what’s really unique about this? It matters in football (although I never watch the Pro Bowl), basketball, and baseball because those leagues have a ton of teams with a ton of players who don’t always, or ever, face each other in the regular season. But in NASCAR they literally see each other every week. So who cares? I know the TV commentators like to say it’s about the bragging rights and…

  • The Driver Suit Blog-Weekend Warriors-The SCCA Part 1

    28 Jun 2014 | 7:30 am
    By David G. Firestone While the Sprint Cup, IndyCar, and Formula 1 drivers get all the glory, the overwhelming majority of drivers are weekend warriors, guys and gals who spend their own money on their cars, and race for the love of the sport. These drivers aren’t “professionals” per se, but they still have a love for the sport. It was on these drivers that the Sports Car Club of America, or SCCA was founded in 1949. It wasn’t about professionals, it was about enthusiasts who loved the sport, and who loved to race. As time went on, however, battles for control of sports car…
  • The Saga of Josh Wise: How Reddit Made Nascar History

    28 Jun 2014 | 6:07 am
    Josh Wise is an unassuming guy. He keeps a low profile, quietly showing up week in and week out to compete in Phil Parsons’ #98 Ford. He usually finishes around 30th place in his races. He isn’t swarmed by starstruck fans eager to grab his autograph or take a picture. In sum, Wise isn’t the kind of guy you’d expect to be a part of Nascar history. But he is. Driving for an underfunded team, Wise secured sponsorship for the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega with the backing of Nascar fans on Reddit, a popular content aggregating site. This event made headlines across the…

    This interesting photograph was taken in the paddock behind the pits at the old Reims Grand Prix circuit on July 6, 1947 prior to a “voiturette” race for smaller displacement open wheel cars which was called the Coupe des Petites Cylindrées. This was a support race before the Grand Prix de Reims, an event for Grand Prix cars which was not, this year, the French Grand Prix which would be held at Lyon in September. The car is a Gordini T11, a very light and maneuverable little car with an 1100cc Simca engine (based on a Fiat unit) which had been extensively modified by the…

    Brianne Corn, former SCCA Rallycross Champion, and 2011 Time Attack Champion at the venerable Pike Peaks International Hill Climb (PPHIC), is ready for another run up the mountain. This time though, her intent is to make it to make the top of the order with support from a maxed out Vorschlag-prepared, all-wheel Subaru WRX/STi, powered by Hyperfuels’ pure ethanol e98 racing fuel. Corn is the only the second woman to produce a class win at Pike Peak’s International Hill Climb where she won the Time Attack class in 2011.

Barra’s two-hour testimony went far better than the first one, which took place earlier this year, where she was ridiculed for a lack of knowledge regarding the recall. Senate members even praised Barra this time around for confronting the issue head-on. Barra was able to confidently stand her ground on many of the issues that the panel questioned her about. She declined to expand the victim compensation program to other vehicles recalled for ignition problems.
