Quality qualifying

Sebastian Vettle will have the best seat in the house for the start of the last round of F1 racing in Abu Dhabi at a track that sparkles like a jewel in the night. All through practice and qualifying it has been said many times how difficult overtaking is on this track and that qualifying positions... Sign in to see full entry.

Fast fascination

The cars resemble darts with wheels as much as anything else. Snarling, screaming V-8 engines belt the car and driver along with upwards of 700 horsepower and enough aerodynamic down force that were it possible to drive the car on the roof of a tunnel, they would stay up there, provided they were at...

Ballet on pavement

Formula one has one more race left in the series. As the world’s elite motor sports championship series heads to Abu Dhabi the contest rests on the shoulders of four drivers. This championship is far from decided. Lewis Hamilton, 2008 world champion is the longest shot, but should lady luck wink at... Sign in to see full entry.

One tenth the size, full size fun, illustrated.

Racers love to drive fast, they also love to drive faster than other racers. That can lead to major expense, just watch any NASCAR race or Formula One race. Recently, a driver threw the steering wheel of his F1 car onto the track in disgust after he crashed out of the Monaco Grand Prix. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Of Supercross and dirt

Dirt bikes race on a dirt track, a treacherous dirt track with jumps and obstacles designed to test the rider’s skill to the utmost. Only when one has seen a Supercross event live can one fully fathom the breathtaking scope of the triple jumps. It is one thing to hear someone describe a triple jump... Sign in to see full entry.

A tall Texas tale

Dungey wins without getting grungy. That’s the Cliff’s notes version of the Premier class Supercross race in Cowboys Stadium. Dungey got off to a great start while second place in the points Villopoto was mired back in tenth place at the first corner in a pile up that resembled a yard sale. Nick Wey...

Follow up to Syracuse and Gonzaaaarrrrrgggghhhha!

I’ll watch the NASCAR roundy-rounders at Bristol later but first I had to watch the Gonzaga and Syracuse game of the NCAA tournament. I’ll get the band aids removed from my eyes later in the week, it was that bad. Starting the day out right is important at work as well as sports. We all know the... Sign in to see full entry.

Ballet on the parquet

I think that’s how they refer to the basketball floor. Anyway, I don’t follow too much B-ballers, just because I don’t really have that much time. But with the advent of the Big Dance and all that, I find two area teams to keep an eye on, after all it all comes down to this, doesn’t it? First, the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Supercross season heats up.

Toronto was a great round of racing. Not to disparage Canada but previous Canadian rounds have lacked something. I think it was the World thing that wasn’t part of the U.S. tour that failed to bring more than a handful of the regular competitors. The big players were on hand last Saturday on a track...

Dirty driving ballet

At the end of last Sunday’s Atlanta 500 Sprint cup race, a nasty incident ensued. Carl Edwards had spend a lot of time in the garage getting his car fixed from an earlier accident involving Brad Kezelowski. He felt Brad had wrecked him on purpose earlier in the race and decided at the last minute to... Sign in to see full entry.
