Ryan was tryin’ in Indy indeed

Indianapolis, in many ways the heart of the American racing scene was host to the AMA Monster Energy Supercross race this weekend. The road to the main event was paved with misery for Ryan Villopoto and Ryan Dungey. Dungey had some sort of altercation with Jason Lawrence and the AMA deemed that they...

The new look of NASCAR

The big news this year in the world of NASCAR is the growing ranks of women racers. Television ratings for an ARCA/REMAX series race were up 56% according to SPEED TV.

Those big ol’ circles

These are to the “cup” cars what the Lights are to the Premier class in motocross, entry level to the big show. Speaking of motocross,... Sign in to see full entry.

Drama in the dirt.

At the start of the season, most Supercross fans were anticipating a season of good racing. We thought it would be the James Stewart – Chad Reed showdown, which of course it has been, only not in the way we thought.

In the beginning there were two-stroke bikes that raced in motocross. The four-stroke engines were... Sign in to see full entry.

The tracks have fallen silent.

The seasons are over. Chad Reed won the outdoor motocross series, a series he had not even planned on racing in. A serious crash in the next to lace race left him in not too good of shape but he had such a lead at that stage he had already clinched the championship. Formula One saw a strange season...

What happens in the post season…

A lot of baseball fans saw their team’s season end today. A lucky few will cling to the hopes of the post season until the World Series has run its course and then there will be one team who’s fans are very happy.
