"Tires is what wins a race." That was the lesson Harry tried to teach Cole in the stock-car classic Days of Thunder. "If we can't figure a way to run so you don't melt the damn tires, we can't finish a race." How right he was: every NASCAR driver knows that having the right tires can mean the difference between a checkered flag and a DNF, but now the White House is embracing the same message to educate the public about safety and fuel efficiency.
The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup season has been one of controversy both on and off the track, but it all came to a fantastic finish with Kevin Harvick claiming victory of the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Not only did he win the race, but he also scored his first Sprint Cup championship.
New details have emerged in the Kurt Busch domestic abuse case after the Associated Press obtained court documents detailing the severity of the September incident, in which the 36-year-old driver allegedly attacked his ex-girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll (shown above, with Busch). Busch is currently being investigated by police in Dover, DE, for the incident, which took place after his elimination from this year's Chase for the Sprint Cup.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup went from a motorsport to a boxing matching following the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. The brawl was allegedly instigated when Brad Keselowski and Jeff Gordon made contact following a restart near the end of the race. The incident punctured one of Gordon's tires and left him fighting mad. Although, NASCAR's punishment might be as bizarre as the fisticuffs that prompted it.
Toyota recently introduced the all-new 2015 Camry for the street, so it follows that it should want to promote its new bread-and-butter sedan by putting it out on the racetrack as well. And that's just what it's done here with the release of the new Toyota Camry for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
ARCA Racer Says NASCAR Fans Are Ready For Green Message
Leilani Münter is putting a red, white and blue spin on green at the Kansas Speedway tonight. That's where the eco-minded racer is debuting her Energy Freedom car with the message that people should be able to choose how clean they want their energy to be.
Upon my review of all of the information contained in the entire investigation, I have made the determination that it would be appropriate to submit the evidence to a grand jury, for their determination as to what action should be taken in this matter. Accordingly, the evidence developed in the investigation will be presented to an Ontario County grand jury in the near future.
Some racing series attract drivers from around the world, but by and large, NASCAR isn't one of them. Marco Ambrose is one of the few exceptions, but now, after more than six years competing for the Sprint Cup, he's calling it quits.
Tony Stewart made his return to the NASCAR Sprint Cup over the weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. However, the race probably wasn't as triumphant as he had hoped. Stewart started in a strong 12th place but eventually had to retire midway through the event. It gives him just one last chance to make it into the Chase for the Sprint Cup and compete for a chance to win his fourth series championship. To do it, he would need to win the upcoming race at Richmond International Raceway. Although, so
Two weeks since fatally hitting driver Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car race in New York, Tony Stewart is returning to the NASCAR Sprint Cup for the upcoming race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The three-time series champion had missed the last three races following the tragedy.
The tragic case of Tony Stewart striking and killing Kevin Ward, Jr. in a sprint car race earlier this week has been dividing opinions, with some screaming for Stewart's head and others saying that Ward brought it upon himself. But while local law enforcement did not initially arrest Stewart or press criminal charges, that doesn't mean that criminal charges won't still be filed.
Barely two days removed from the tragic incident between NASCAR Sprint Cup star Tony Stewart and young Kevin Ward Jr., we're still far from certain of the particulars of the events that led to Ward's death. What is certain, though, is that the Internet's proselytizing of the incident has hit its stride.
Tony Stewart, three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, hit and killed fellow driver Kevin Ward Jr. after an on-track altercation sent the 20-year-old Ward into the wall, leaving him out of the race. According to witnesses and video recorded from the stands, Ward exited his car, throwing his hands up in frustration, and walked toward Stewart as he came back around the track under the caution flag. Stewart's car came into contact with Ward, who was sucked under Stewart's car before being thrown seve
Motorsports these days tends to be pretty safe, even if the danger of pushing a car or motorcycle to its absolute limit can never be entirely removed. Compared to the frequent deaths of the '60s and earlier, we live in good times, however, in just the last few years the topic of concussions has become among the hottest conversations in American sports, especially after the National Football League's $765 million settlement with ex-players last year. The next frontier for taking care of former co
The US National Guard has spent $44 million on sponsorships in NASCAR and IndyCar this year, a particularly troubling figure in a time when every military expenditure is given careful scrutiny. That's prompted some members of Congress to question the usefulness of the motorsports partnerships.

Few things make racing more exciting than a good rivalry. Whether it's watching Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton go at it in Formula One or tradin' paint in NASCAR, a good fued adds an extra dash of excitement to already tight competition. However, two drivers in a Modified division race in North Carolina might have taken things too far when they turned a short track oval into a demolition derby. The crowd absolutely loved it, though.
